4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt, as well as light notes of coffee, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of roasted malt, and coffee that grows stronger towards the end, on a good strong alcoholic background - You don’t taste it - it is just felt. Nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 (Bottle 50 cl) Completely black and opaque beer with a tall, dense, inch thick, light brown head that leaves a pretty lacework. This really is one goodlooking beer. The aroma is full of fat, burned malts - even a bit vinous. Extremely full-bodied, this pours thick and tar-like. Extremely solid notes of roasted malt with burned touches, some fruit and a discreet, underlying sweetness. Ends fairly bitter. A grand Impy indeed. 010407 and 070907

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is coffee, alcohol, chocolate and some spices. Flavour is chocolate, alcohol, coffee along with some roasted malts and vanilla. A bit too sweet, partly thanks to the alcohol, but otherwise a very nice brew. Aftertaste is vanilla and roasted malts.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Very black, brownish head. Tarry nose. Medium sweet and full bodied with thick mouthfeel. Citric hops simmer in tar, to be enjoyed with a spoon. Lots of roasty flavours. Vast in character, possibly well sweet. There are much less good Imperial Stouts on the top-50...

Opaque black beer, thich chocolate coloured head. Full on Imperial Stout. Smooth palate. Lots of roasted malt with a sub harmonic of cherry. A little brandy warmth and some bitter hops and aniseed spice in the finish. Unsubtle and unapologetic!

2009-06-05, bottle, batch 115, 8-5-9-4-18=44
Black color with huge head. It has a complex aroma with roasted malt, chocolate, ashes, hops that don’t fail to show some fruitness; very light but pleasant cheesy trace. Strong body, good mix of chocolate, roasted malt and caramel, and all supported by the minimum required sweeetness, and creamy; strong bitterness; quite strong alcohol presence, warming the mouth beyond the expected 10.5%, but never disturbing. In the final there are delicate waves of coffee and light liquorice. Excellent Imperial Stout, powerful well mixed and complex. Top.
2009-05-15, draught at Københavnske Øldage 2009, 8-5-8-4-16=41
Black color; big creamy head. Very nice creamy roasted malt aroma, a bit cheesy too. Good body strength, smooth; strong roasted malt flavor, strong bitterness, but also a light sourness, that I would like not to find. Very good.
