3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Backlogged rating, Bottle share: Pretty much looks like every big bad Impy from Bruery, opaque with small head and oily tears. Huge chocolate covered boozy cherries candy and a bit of a white russian too. Roasted walnuts, charred barrel, touch of dark fruit and a hint of pepper. Rich and lush mouth feel that is cleansed by the massive alcohol. Another where even 2 ounces is hard to finish. Oh so sweet and decadent. Better than Mocha Wednesday but less than Black Tuesday or Gray Monday.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle shared by MisoW. Thanks!
Dark brown body, with a tiny head.
Heavy, boozy aroma, with chocolate, coffee, liquorice, coconut, vanilla, dried fruits.
Taste also with a massive alcohol presence, but otherwise simply amazing, with the above mentioned aromas and more, complex sweet notes.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a low carbonation.
Finishes quite smooth, alcohol warming, astringent.
Wow, amazing stuff! Drinks like a heavy, complex, dark chocolate liqueur. The alcohol is really overwhelming, but it still fits and gives the beer even more character. Couldnít drink much of this, but enjoyed it big time!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a dark brown/black color ale with a small foamy head with minimal retention and some light lacing. Aroma of black chocolates with quite a bit of residual sugar notes. Taste is also dominated by black chocolate notes with loads of residual sugar and a spicy finish. Vanilla notes are more subtle but kind of help smooth some of the rough edges of this beer. Body is about average for style with medium carbonation and warming alcohol can be detected. Big beer or sure that need to be split up between a couple of people, but very enjoyable beer nonetheless.
