Bottle #401 2005 one year old. Pitch black pour with a big creamy dark tan head. Nice dark tan lacing on the bottle. Aroma is dark fruit and chocolatey roast. Really quite attractive. Dark chocolate, cherries, sugar, and a touch of warming alcohol. The finish is mildly roasty and warming. A really nice winter dessert beer.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from 2004 was marked number 114 and it poured a large sized head of long lasting foamy dark brown colored bubbles that left behind an opaque black brown colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma contained mild dark brown malty notes. The mouth feel was smooth at the start and tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of dark malts and coffee.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve been looking forward to this beer in a long time - ever since it was in the top 50. The beer is pitch black with a nice brown head. The aroma is sweet roasted combined with quite strong notes of chocolate. The flavor is slightly acidic with strong notes of chocolate as well as light notes of herbs and alcohol, leading to a very dry end with a very strong coffee presence. Nice.

750 ml into tulip glass, The Friday impy stout tasting, summer 2005. Even in the somewhat small sample size necessary in this gargantuan tasting, the beer looks beautiful: huge wall of sticky lacing, deep and elegant "racing." Smell: creamy alcohol and some light chocolate; smells delicate and subtle, maybe at bit too delicate for how it looks. Despite the somewhat weak-sauce aroma (which could be due to the circumstances), this is full as hell, chewy chocolate and brown sugar malts. It didn’t do better because I didn’t sense many of the thing I usually love in impys: dark luscious fruits. It was pretty much straightforward. Finish was long and roasty with some acid tang. Great beer.
