3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Bottle at Paul’s Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13
Aroma: The nose has some chocolate malts, roast, fruity notes, and a little oxidation
Appearance: This one pours a medium-dark brown color with a small tan head
Flavor: Taste-wise, the chocolate stands out, though there’s some mild oxidation too
Palate: The body is medium (light for the style), with a soft carbonation, and smooth feel
I thought this was a decent beer, but it felt as though the age may have hurt it a bit. Still though, it was pretty solid.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a dark brown color with a creamy tan head.
S: Very oxidized. Almost sherry- or port-like. Big dark fruits and a bit of booze. Some dark chocolate and a lot of roasted malts. Not too much roast or oatmeal character.
T: Lightly roasty with a lot of dark chocolate and some noticeable alcohol--almost like a chocolate liqueur. Some dark fruit flavors like prunes and plums. A little bit of cardboard oxidation.
M: Medium to full in body with a low to medium carbonation. Really heavy on the tongue.
O: Some good things to it, but some negative ones as well. And, too boozy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle thanks to dashirey on BA. Pours dark brown, but light in color for the style, with a little bit of tan foam sitting on top that fades to swirls. Aroma is lots of sherry-like oxidation. Roast and chocolate as well. Flavor is nice and chocolatey. Pretty subtle for an RIS. Some dark fruits and sherry-like oxidation. Like a toned-down, aged Kate the Great almost. Medium-light bodied for the style, but very smooth. Low carbonation. Very enjoyable aged imperial stout overall. Drinkable.
