1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Terrible, terrible beer. Tart and tangy, waaaay overspiced. Horrible beer that reminds me of a first-time homebrew.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle - Big and dark with a thin tan head. Nose is burnt sugar, boozy warmth, molasses, and a weird dark malt/plastic mix. Taste is big and sweet, with brown sugar and molasses, bitter dark malt, a bit of roast, and some coffee grounds on the finish. Mouth coating in a weird filmy way, and lots of sugary sweetness throughout. Thick and slick, with minimal carbonation. Would have liked this beer 4 years ago, but not now. Gross.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pours a dark brown/black color with very little head. The aroma is sweet with molasses, toffee, and caramel. The taste is heavy and sweet with coffee flavors. It starts thick and creamy and ends with a chalky, malt after taste. A uniquely made “Swedish Style Stout.”

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Bottle at Paul’s Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13
Aroma: The nose is sweet and malty, has some booze and some caramel
Appearance: The beer pours an almost black color with a brown head
Flavor: Taste-wise, it is pretty much what you’d expect from the nose, sweet and a little boozy
Palate: The body is medium, with a decent feel, and a little bit of heat on the finish
There was quite a bit going on here, so that was nice. It was a touch too sweet, and though maybe not a top of style offering, this one was pretty good in my opinion.
