4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at PP Carlsbad. Beautiful midnight pour with a dense mocha head that left significant lacing. Slightly lighter than its BA version when held to light (surprising). Amazingly rich and unique base beer with all of the complementing qualities present. Godiva chocolate, Hershey syrup, and Nestlé Quik cocoa powder are there. Soakes up all that compliments it...whatever the brewer wants to add. Delicious on its own but benefits from other treatments!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours big and black as "night" with a huge brown head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, wood, , dark fruits, nuts and grass. A lot going on in the nose. The taste is a perfect balanced bittersweet with a slight coffee tart tinge that really gives the taste a unique dimension. Mouthfeel is crisp yet sticky, heavy body and a big long finish.

Keg at CPK, London. Pours oily, black-brown with a fine, beige cream head. Aroma is all kinds of dark cocoa, moderate roast, some alcohol. Nice flavor, robust but not overbearing, with lots of dusty roast and rich baking cocoa, light earth and dirt. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish with more baking cocoa, faint dark fruits and earthy bitterness, touches of raisins and light booze. Very nice Impy Stout.
