3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Appearance is black with substantial dark brown foam. The aroma is mildly sweet and roasty with a strong emphasis on dark chocolate, caramelized sugar and toffee. The taste starts out with a heavy dose of roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate and black licorice as well as some espresso, vanilla and Kahlua notes lurking in the background. Mouthfeel is creamy with moderate carbonation and a burnt, boozy finish. While the Belgian influence is minimal, it’s still a fairly well-balanced and enjoyable 10% Impy Stout.

Unique imperial w/ a phenomenal mouthfeel! The light body really sets this off from other stouts as well as the Belgian dark chocolate twist. It has just enough bitterness to really make this a complex & outstanding stout!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pitch black color. Black strap molasses, dark fruit tobacco and dark chocolate in the nose. Very enticing. Low carbonation, big strong Belgian yeast with lots of molasses. Rich, to the point of almost cloying but smooth and moderately sweet. Nice lingering dark fruit and dark chocolate finish. Bitterness is very low. Excellent t

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wow, this was special. Inky black pour with a foamy, dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malts and wild yeasts. The flavour was probably one of the most subtley complex I have experienced in a stout in some time. The Belgian yeasts provide a nice wild spicy flavour as a backbone to a huge roasted malt profile. Absolutely incomparable.

A nice imperial stout overall. Pours a deep, thick black with a thick brown head. Smells of cocoa, coffee and vanilla. Taste starts thick and creamy, with some coffee upfront, followed by milk chocolate and some vanilla in the finish. Had in the bottle.
