solid black, creamy tan head. Aroma of roast malt, ashy, toffee, banana, toasted biscuit, fruit, chocolate. Taste is chocolatey sweet, hop and burnt malt bitter. Yeast is pretty evident and a strong flavor in this Imp Stout, which is a little unusual.

Should an imperial stout smell like bubblegum? Bottle with black pour thick beige head. lots of lacing. Full aroma, of bubblegum. Big bodied, roast, chocolate and malty songs. Malty finish. Sip it, it’s not bad. But should an imperial stout smell like bubblegum?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft. Pours a dark black with some offwhite head. Smell unfolds a dark roastedness, some chocolate, some hops and known sweetness. Taste reveals dark and milk chocolate, some ripe dark fruit, roasted malts with a medium bitter finish and some lingering sweetness. Overall, I thought this was a very nice but perhaps not as full-bodies as I would of liked.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours black coffee with short lived mocha foam which falls to a sheet of the same for a few dozen seconds. Nose is rich malts, oats, coffee, dark chocolate, some fig and graham. A slight note of rye bread. Flavor is a little less appreciable. Coffee, dry cocoa, graham, toasted grains and some dried figs. A little bit of licorice when cold, but as it warmed, this dissipated. Full bodied with moderate carb and a dry finish. Drinkable, but not something I will make a second purchase on.

On draught at Bailey’s Taproom, bourbon barrel aged. Opaque dark brown color. Aroma is dark chocolate, oat, and bourbon. Taste is roasted and toasted grains, dark chocolate, and woodsy bourbon. Mouthfeel is a little watery considering the style. Finishes with some toastiness and alcohol.

On tap. Oddly sweet with very little roasted or chocolate malt flavor. Pretty heavy diacetyl gives it a slick oily mouthfeel. Not a good one

Out of a 22. Pours a dark black with a small tan head. Smell is slightly sweet and roasted. Taste is dry with a late sweet hint. Roasted malts linger on the tongue.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a very dark ruby red having minimal head and lace. Smell of lightly sweet and roasted malt having a dark fruit and hop note. Taste has an overall mellowness having a light balance of sweet, roasted malt and hop with no hint of alchohol. Mouthfeel is medium - light having nice carbonation for the style. An easy drinking imperial stout.
