3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2005 Rich creamy aroma, milk chocolate like with some vinous notes, yum. Probably the least dark impy ive seen, not that that matters much. Tastes of milk chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, and warming alcohol. Mouthfeel is super creamy and luscious, with lively spots of CO2. This was a winner, liked it a lot.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2006 Pours a black red with a chocolate malt aroma. Alcohol is fairly noticable. Very bitter and full of chocolate, caramel, molasses, and heavy roasted flavors. The alcohol is a bit too heavy, but otherwise an excellent brew.

Sampled at the Pizza Port 9th Strong Ale Festival. Cocoa and coffee with some vanilla notes, bittering to balance, alcohol presence was notable but not offensive. A decent IS, nicely done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a jet black with no head. Aroma is a stong chocolate and coffee with a touch of alcohol. Flavor is bitter chocolate with a touch of vanilla. The aroma is by far better than the flavor. Not the best impy stout but it has plenty to offer.
