4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is quite the enjoyable brew. Pour is very dark with a light color head and the glass leaves little lacing. Smell is sweet of chocolates, roasted malt, and booze. This one is oh so sweet and oh so smooth. You almost forget it’s 10+%.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma has the old chocolates and the roasted malts, but there’s also a hint of alcohol and some fruits in there. The taste comes right up and poke you with its Narwhal tooth/horn/Pinocchio nose and a kinda sweet malt and dark dried fruits blends well with harsher malts and alcohol. The dry and bitter chocolate finish in this one almost makes yo feel thirsty after you had one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. 355ml. Opaque dark brown with a creamy brown head and "smooth" lacing. Sweet, spicy aroma of roasted malts, with hints of dried fruits, molasses and a slight herbal mintiness. Smooth and creamy, but robust, with moderate to flat carbonation. Sweet and with a considerable bitter undertone. Magnificent roasted character well balanced with the fruity sweetness.Very impressive finish with lots of flavor and complexity with the alcohol well masked. An inmense brew.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle dated 2014. I’ll put one away and compared it to the 2015 edition. It’s almost black, no surprise there, a moderate light brown head. A slight caramel sweetness, a little coffee, some bittersweet chocolate. I had this beer for the first time last year and I liked it a lot, they don’t get much better. Try it if you can.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is some semi-sweet chocolate with some roast and brown sugar. Flavor is a strong roast and a heavy molasses malt. Some sugar and intense char malt with a bit of alcohol finish things up. This was a wonderful Impy stout. Plenty of heavy syrupy sugar malts with a warming alcohol. Not a lot of hops but this is a nice malt bomb.

Pours black with medium head.
Aroma is roasted malt, ash, beef stock, soy sauce and some smoke.
Taste is roasted malt, ash, licorice and dark chocolate leading to a warming alcohol finish.
Pretty good, but there’s quite a few Imperial Stouts like this one out there.
