Shiny stark black with a moderate fizzy tan foam that can be rejuvenated well with a swirl.

Smell is nutty oak and nearly smoky dark roasted malt with a sort of spicy herbal sassafras and rye, finishing with milk chocolate.

In flavor, the roasted malt also almost seems smoked, with a spicy, waxy peanut butter rye barrel. Cocoa and a slight whiskey tingle follow, with a touch of almond extract barely in the background.

A slick medium body has a light bubbly fizz, finishing semi-dry.

Really impressed with the rye nose on this Imp stout. A lot of nuance, and the rye doesn't dominate by any means. The palate is less artful unfortunately, and the barrel overtakes any base stout that might be present underneath. Might do well with some age to let the barrel presence recede. Mouthfeel is relatively on point. Overall it's very competent, but doesn't reach the level of anything truly special.
