3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon, spiced smell, the look is dark. The taste is like it smell, more sweet than bitter, but it is missing something. Good beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 12 oz bottle. Near black with small head. Aroma of chocolate and dark malts. Modest carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavor of dark malts, dark chocolate, malted milk balls, molasses, minerals. Overall not the biggest Impy Stout at 9%, but nonetheless full bodied, flavorful,& nicely sweet without significant oxidation in this bottle. So, all-in-all, quite tasty as it warms up.

Aroma: very roasty and a little boozy; good; Appearance: pitch black with thin off white head that disappears almost immediately; Taste: follows nose with a little additional bitterness; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: not bad. Not the first stout I’d choose, but decent.

Dark amber pour, no head. Nose is coffee, chocolate, cherries, alcohol. Bittersweet. Middle is fudge brownies (that’s what I taste!) with some cinnamon. Finish is earthy malt with a nice hop bite. Stay with this one, it is delicious.
