UPDATED: OCT 28, 2011 (Bottle marked 11/09 thanks to blutt59) Pours jet black with tan bubbles. Nose of vanilla, coffee, and sweet chocolate. Taste of bakers chocolate, caramel, cream, cocoa, with a thick and sweet finish with a moderate amount of bitterness. Slightly syrupy too. Rating: 8-4-7-3-15

(12oz bottle from the brewer - Re-Rate! deep ruby/brown with a ring of tan bubbles. Nose of rich maple, waffles, bourbon, rich chocolate. Taste of alcohol, maple, waffles, bourbon, rich chocolate, very decadent! Vanilla here too, so complex and flavorful. Thick body, coffee, vanilla, well carbonated, and an absolutely spot-on palate finish. Age has really done wonders for this beer. Now the 2009 vintage I would rate as: 8-4-8-5-17

BBB63 (5946) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2009
Aug 2, 2007 MiBGF 07: Opaque with a excellent oily film on the sample cup. The aroma abounds with liquorice, molasses, smoke, bittersweet bakers chocolate, and a hint of bourbon and vanilla beans. The taste is a tour de force with a huge fruity character (mostly fig) supported by anise in the forefront followed by heavy notes of chocolate and vanilla finishing with a dash of smoke and coffee. Oh wait a minute and you will even find a brief moment of piney hops and acidity. YUMMY! The mouth feel is lush, oily and oh so dangerously drinkable for a big Impy. It goes big without making you gasp for air. It is a wonderful work of art I wish I could have a growler of. Almost all you would ever want for an Imperial Stout.
