Tap at Barcade: Near opaque pour with a deep khaki head. Pretty aromatic: chocolaty, roast, fennel, some hop notes. Silky body. Rich roast in the flavor. Soy sauce, char, long roast amd dark chocolate. A straight forward impy with a solid profile.

2012 bottle. Pours black with 1 finger of mocha head and nice lace. Nose of roasted malt, smoke, chocolate, coffee and booze. Full body with tons of coffee and roasted malt. Better than I was expecting, especially after looking at the bottle that the cork is sticking out way too far.

Eh. Pours black with tan head. Smells like dough and yeast. Tastes the same with a hint of roasted chocolate and coffee. Not much to this one.

Growler poured into a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate and coffee malts, a nice dough aroma, and light hops. Flavor the same with a lot of dark malts. Smooth texture. A good beer for the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Bottle at Paulís Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13
Aroma: The nose is mostly roasted malts and coffee, underlying earth and chocolate
Appearance: It pours a dark brown/black color with a small light brown head
Flavor: The taste is also on the roasted side, not too sweet, but heavily malty for sure
Palate: The body is medium, but it feels light for the style, with a dry, roasty finish
This was a solid one overall, but not a favorite for me at the tasting. Still though, it is plenty solid and certainly worth trying.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours unclear pure dark coffee black in color as beautiful as any imperial stout color with w big creamy dark mocha head. The aroma brings sweet milky roasted malt stout with a bit of alcohol, smooth, on the back end. The flavor of roasted coffee and some smoke comes in at first, then a bit of bitterness ends on the tongue with a lighter but creamy body.

Bottle shared by Blake. Was excited to try this because was needed a palate break from the sours. Very basic in style: smoke mixed with chocolate and malt. A pretty solid beer though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, sweet rich roasted malt, vanilla, and a hint of coffee. Flavor of roasted malt, bitter hops, charred malt, and a touch of coffee grounds in the finish. Light bodied for an impy, but not in a bad way (I quite enjoy this departure from the norm). My only complaint is that it could be a little more flavorful, but still it is pretty good. Nice imperial stout!
