4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375ml green corked bottle. Deep dark brown to black pour. Head is small and light brown, reduces to a thin layer on the surface. Very light spotty lace left on the glass. U.S. aroma hops, but more of an alcohol presence in the nose and some light sweetness. Flavour is big and roasty, big hop presence. Sharp PNW hop profile, some light alcohol notes. Finishes with big roasty malts, bitter and dry. Body is full, slick, oily. Carbonation is subtle. Aftertaste is roasty and acidic with warming alcohol in the background. Solid Impy with a very nice smoothness for a big stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, mht. 31-08-2008. Black with a beige head. Aroma of lime, chocolate, coffee and licorice - surprised about the lime. Porter/citrus water flashbacks. I like that, as this was how I grew up to be a beer drinker tasting it in my childhood. Flavour is the exact same thing with sweetness and a roasted bitter finish. Aging did nothing bad to this imo.

Er som en stout skal være, god kraftig smag af de ristede malte, og store mængder humle, bl.a. cascade
Har en frugtagtig eftersmag.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 37,5cl from Henrik thanks, 2005 batch ! A dark beer without head and carbonation. Nose is on dark malt, with prune and caramel touch. Aroma is intense on dark malt, caramel and licorice, notes of prune and light oxidation, nice complexity, oily texture, very pleasant, dark chocolate notes, relatively easy to drink, very long licorice and toffee finish, excellent beer. Compared to the recipe, the US hops are less powerful here, malty dimension take the head and the 8 year vintage let the body more fruity ans less aggressive I think, very interesting.
