Tmoney99 (13080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2016
Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, coffee, vanilla, spice and small alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted dark malt sweet flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

Pour on tap at Crunchy’s dark brownish black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, roast, caramel, some brownie, hints of coffee notes into a bit of anise, slight spice. Taste was a mix of dark cocoa, roast, coffee notes into a bit of anise, slight dark fruit, spice notes, finishing fairly sweet. Pretty nice.

Ibrew2or3 (7960) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Can sample courtesy of JPDurden24. It pours with a nice and dark body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up dark roasted malts, earthy malts, Belgian candi sugar, chocolate and then some date smelling dark fruity esters. The taste delivers Belgian candi sugar sweetness, chocolate, malt sweetened dark roasted malts, a mild level of Belgian yeasty spiciness and then some brown sugar rounding the experience out. Solid tasting Impy where the chocolate and Belgo notes are going very well together.

On tap at Brewery Vivant on 1/29/16. Darkest brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate and Belgian esters. Malty and chocolatey flavor with caramel accents before an estery finish.

Pailhead (6280) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2013
Can: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, light molasses, banana, plum, roast, and some faint burnt notes. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small tan head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thick ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate with a touch of banana. The finish has moderate plum, light-moderate roast, light alcohol, coffee, and a touch of metal. It’s medium bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, the alcohol and metal combo in the finish definitely decrease my enjoyment of this beer.
