Location: Bottle at Paulís Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13

Aroma: The nose is has some roast, chocolate, whiskey, and other dark malts
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color without much head
Flavor: The taste is malty as well, lightly sweet with some whiskey notes
Palate: The body is light for the style, it feels creamy, and has a mild burn
Overall Impression: I thought this one was pretty solid. The barrel aging had a nice affect on this beer.

fletchfighters (1133) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2012
A-- Poured a light cola color, settled dark cola with tints of red. Very short lived light brown head. At most one finger of head. Same with swirling. A few thin strips of lacing with this. S-- Sweet, very sweet. Brown sugar oatmeal, sherry, cherry. A small bit of alcohol smell but not that much. T-- Alcohol mixed with a lot of rolled oats. Alcohol drops off and becomes a lot of oat taste. No real sweetness in the taste just a lot of oats. Not a bad thing though. M-- Much higher carbonated than would have guessed. Feel is higher medium. Not syrupy at all. In some ways prickly and fizzy in the mouth. A lot of oat in the mouth and a lot of alcohol all the way through. Get more burnt brown sugar in the mouth than in the taste. D-- Goes down pretty easy, even with the high alcohol feel to this. In some ways Ok, in some ways not so much.

Shared by Azurelimits at my tasting on August 7, 2010. Thanks Pete! Vintage 2005 This beer appears a very dark brown color, but certainly not black. A smallish tan head camps out upon the beer for a few moments before leaving a small trace of lacing in its wake. Aromas include chocolate, roasted malt, alcohol. The taste is nice, with a nice flavor from the oatmeal. Oats + stout = I like. The beer was really smooth and mellow, having been cellared for five years. Whiskey flavors were definitely present, but the heat was tamed by time. A really nice, unexpected treat. If it wasnít retired, Iíd acquire a few bottles.

Opaque very dark brown beer. Short lived tan head. Mild dark malt and chocolate nose. Crispy palate. Minerally dark malt, not roasty or bitter. Beautifully blended coffee and dark chocolate and mild whisky. Turns softer. Light minerally chocolate aftertaste. Very nice.

Thanks jyoungs! Batch 1 2006 pours dark chocolate amber with a big caramel head. The aroma smells of aged yeast and sweet roasted malts. The flavor is creamy, light whisky notes, and developed roasted malt notes on a smooth body. Delicious.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 A winter warmer. Aroma in this stout in general is very complex but you does not confuse the senses. Great stout appearance and beautiful milky tan head. The taste is full of flavor in a mild manner. The palate remains with a sense of rich coffee a a hint of sweetness. Overall, on this cold night - a winner. The alcohol is present but not acutely. A soul warmer.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2011
12oz bottle pours black with a light brown head. Aromas of calmer toffee, honey, coffee, wood and smoke, bread dough, molasses and brown sugar. Flavor starts sweet with a brown sugar molasses then gets bitter with a roast malt smoked wood. Body is medium heavy with an alcohol warmth. Despite sweetness finish leaves a bitter smoke behind
