3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with gramity while on a visit to Edmonton. Near black, bubbly brown head. Big bourbon aroma, dark chocolate, wood. Sweet bourbon on the palate, bitter chocolate, acrid roast, very bitter finish. This is really hampered by overcarbonation, and the acridness becomes a bit much.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Head is initially small, frothy, brown, fully diminishing.
Body is dark brown to black.
Aroma is lightly malty (chocolate, roasted grain), with light notes of sour cherries, crabapples, paint.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic, moderately bitter, unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic.
Well, my prayers for an Impy stout from the PNW that isnít undrinkably sweet have been answered...woo hoo! But itís only because the beer is infected...díoh! Massive sourness destroys all. Undrinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Charred roasty example, and in no way feels like 11.6%.   Barely seems like 5%.   Moderately hopped, a bit astringent.   A touch of apple peel.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Has a bit of a dry chalky finish, with some roasted malts and apple peel.   Nothing out of the ordinary, and I question if this is really 11.6%.

Very mellow ... Very smooth. Good espresso and chocolate notes. Hint of roastiness. Hint of sweetness. Hint of chewiness. No ABV burn. Recommended.

Good Imperial Stout but not great. A little bit too hoppy for my taste, but overall a good beer.
