11.2oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours brown with a light beige head. Aroma of caramel and toasted malts with some dough and floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best beer, but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Porterhouse Central. This brew pours a deep amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of malt, caramel and fruit. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and a some hops in the background. The finish is sweet with a pale malt aftertaste. Decent all around.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2013 330ml bottle - bierpost.com - The same quality blend of rich, tasty malts and subtly-dosed quality hops as in Porterhouse’s "Wrassler’s stout" - only, contrary to what the label says, the flavour does not wholly "belie its alcohol content" - with only 7 ABV, the distinct boozy esthers dominate the top of the aroma and almost make this great drinkable recipe into a cautious sipper. Hide the ABVs a bit better and I’m back on board for a full 6 pack. - Have to appreciate the Joycean "tasty drop" pun, though.
Rerate II/2013: must have gotten a fresher bottle this time (bb24/06/2012): very tasty and none too stingingly added Galena, Nugget and East Kent Goldings make for a delicious ImpStout’ishly fresh fruity nose. Dry aftertaste, noticeable ABV remain. 2nd choice after Wrassler’s!

Clear amber beer. Fluffy white head. Softish dry palate. Dry malt and dry bittering hops. Palate turns softer and a touch of fruit salad sweets makes an appearance. Finishes dry with some tea. Bitter aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear dark amber brown with a persistent head covering and streaks of lace. The taste begins with roasted caramel malt, followed through the palate with sour bittering that compliments, only to have the malt re-emerge at the finish. A solid, yet not over-powering brew. Recommended.
