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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black pour under a dark head. Licorice, roasted malts, chocolate, molasses, and faint smoke. Complex and full of intrigue. Finish is sharp and bitter with cocoa and more licorice, especially as it warms. Body is on the medium to near thin side, which aids its drinkability. A very enjoyable Imperial.

Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver; 2 years old
Black color, small head. Mild aroma of roasted malts. Lean body, some roasted malt flavor, also quite sour; low bitterness.
Is this what it was supposed to be or is this the result of an infection? Not too bad.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours near black with a foamy dark head. Aroma of chocolate and yeast. Taste is unusual but not in the typical "funky Belgian" way that my wife sometimes doesn’t like.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #1439 - 16.01.2015 - Bottle from CBI. Beautiful dark brown pour with a fairly foamy tan head with mild lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, belgian yeast apparent. Taste is oaty and thick, almost sludgy on the mouth feel, but layered with hints of vanilla and chocolate, yeast character subdued but present. Alcohol is well tempered. Tasty.

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!
