Temptation (256) - - MAR 4, 2013
Pitch black with sediments, big and foamy head. Very carbonated, didn’t stop pouring. Aromas to chocolate and lactic yeast. Bitterness like liquorice or instant coffee. Medium development and body. Creamy texture. Not bad, but not among the best stouts.

ik d8 toch echt dat ik deze al eens eerder gerate had... nou ja ... dan nog maar eens... schenkt enorm schuimig (lichte Gusher) .. goh Alvinne.... in met schuimige prikkelende koolzuurkraag die snel inslinkt... en verder mooie donkerbruine kleur.. .aroma van licht zuren, geroosterde mout. Smaakt weird... zuur, chocolade, alcohol, moutig, noten, laurier, redelijk zoet, enorme mondvullende koolzuur, donkere fruiten, redelijke body, ben niet zo weg van het zuurtje in deze stout ...

Foffern (1497) - Bodø, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2015
Three year old bottle at home. A real gusher. Has a dark brown to black color with a small light brown head. Aroma of oak, vinegar, roasted malt, rye bread, wet basement and some coffee. A bit odd and unbalanced. The flavor is also strange with more basement that fades into roasted malt, ash and some alcohol. A little better but still unbalanced. Has a silky mouth feel, medium body and a light to medium bitterness. I guess this beer is better on another occasion but the gushing are affecting my experience.

Maarten1993 (632) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2015
Drank @ Borefts 2015 (saturday). The beer is somewhat bitter and coffee, but is watery. Not a compelling taste. Chili in the afteraste, a bit too much.

Maris (1226) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 1/8/2015. Pours a deep brown with not much of a head. Has a chocolatey aroma with a touch of red wine in the mix. There’s more chocolate and wine in the flavour, a little soy, roasted malt, and a moderate spicy bitterness. The palate in thin for an impy and the carbonation soft. Definitely does not present as 10%. Reasonably drinkable but pretty forgettable as far as impys go.

Shark_Pants (504) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2015
Deep dark brown with sizeable tan head, but no lacing to speak of. The aroma definitely has the trademark morpheus yeast sourness, some dark chocolate, dank hops and a bit of molasses. The taste is a battle between sweetness, sourness and roastiness. Molasses, dark chocolate, then balsamic vinegar, then coffee roastiness and bitterness. Full bodied, 10% ABV not really noticeable. Too much clashing of flavours rather than complementing for my likes.

mateuszk (1121) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle. Dark brown, white head - very big, th ebeer is overcarbonated. In aroma mainly caramel and some fruity esters. In taste again caramel, fruits and sour notes, especially in the finish. Medium bodied, medium bitter finish with low sournesss. In overall not recommend, if you look for Imp Stout - it’s not a good example.
