3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured into my bruery tulip. Nice, two finger head stays with the drink with very nice lacing. Aroma of smokey coffee and sweet fruits. Taste follows the nose, a little to toasty, Iím loving the fruits, nice change in an impy stout. Mouthfeel is solid. Pretty good, under the radar stout!!!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased at "Beers of the World" in Rochester New York. Pours a motoroil like colour, completely opaque, khaki head and waves of lacing. Smells really malty, caramelized malt, some chocolate. Tastes bitter and malty of course, most certainly dark chocolate, its got a cola like mouth feel to it. Interesting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted on 1/28/12 from a capped bomber bottle obtained in a trade. Pours a nearly black dark brown with an average, rocky, tan head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is darkly roasted coffee with some dark chocolate, and a pretty strange burnt plastic aroma. The flavor is pretty much the same, with a bit of a lightly smokey note. The body is full with average carbonation and a long coffee and burnt plastic finish with some bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 mL bottle. Black with a nice, sticky, beige head. Smells British, not American, if that makes sense. Earthy hops, no booze, not huge. Taste is pretty much the same. I donít mean to make this sound like a bad thing. Itís a solid stout, with lots of chocolate and a herbal touch from the hops. Alcohol is very well hidden.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle aged 1 year 3 weeks. Purchased @ Table and Vine, West Springfield, MA for $8.99. Typical poor into a snifter. Nose has roasted malt, dark fruit and slight booze. Flavor is similar but a has a pronounced lingering dark fruit. BIG raisin or a prune like dark fruit. (Maybe from the age) You can pick up the English hops when warm. The body is in the medium range. High drinkability, I finished the bomber with ease. I only picked up the ABV slightly after it reached room temp. Well worth a try!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Half Time. Pours quite black with a 3 finger foamy/creamy tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate with some hoppy/veg notes. Full body. Flavor is chocolate, dark fruit, residue of burnt malt/ashy, and some mouth grabbing bitterness, buffered by what seems to be a touch of treacle. Iím also thinking this has floral, but the flavor is so strong and complex itís hard to be sure. Anyway, if itís an Impy Stout you want, with no frills and silliness, this is a very good choice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bouteille de 650ml. La biŤre est noire comme la nuit, la mousse est mince et brune. Le nez est de chocolat, de rhum brun et de levure de sake. La bouche est dans le mÍme registre, de sake (??) de chocolat et de rhum brun chocolatť. Il manque un petit quelque chose pour que cette biŤre soit une rťsussite. 6/10
