pushkinwow (2436) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle from Angst in Secret Santa 2012, bottled 2011. Ruby tinged black with a hint of brown head that remains for a bit before gradually disappearing to nothing. Mild smoke with a nice coffee, bit of anise, some roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate. Mild carbonation, an oddly full yet somewhat thin body if that makes with some vinous and alcohol notes, becomes very dry and slightly bitter.

#70 De Molen beer // Thx. to Martinus for sharing this one // 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Tim’s De Molen & assorted beers tasting // Bottled on 05/09/2011. Looks black with a creamy mocha head. Smell is very bitter roasted coffee, grounded bitter coffee, choc & chocolate, light caramel & touch liquorice. Taste is bitter grounded coffee, coffee grounds mixed with creamy, milky & sweeter coffee, lightly herbal with a liquorice touch, light berries & creamy, dark malts, cocao & light ash / burned. I am digging this. My memory is a bit vague of the old version, I think this one is the better one & more bitter than the first one but age is of course a factor, the first one was older than this one when I tried if I am not mistaken.

Martinus (4317) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Black colour, tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, red fruits, caramel, light liquorice and chocolate. Coffee bitter flavour, caramel, light sweet, chocolate and roasted malts. Quite balanced. Finish coffee and cocoa.
Nice, though it doesn’t seem very different from the older version.
(From 33cL bottle shared at the DMT @ Tim’s living, Gent. Bottling date 5 Sept 2011)

MoritzF (9041) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2012
(bottle, 33cl, 11.2% abv) Almost black coloured hue with a beige and short foamy head. Slightly yeasty roast-malty aroma with notes of coffee, liquorice, a tinge of leather, marzipan, as well as traces of alcohol. Roasty bitter flavour with a balanced malty sweetness, full bodied with a soft carbonation. Hearty roasty malt-character with present notes of coffee, liquorice, leather and traces of molasses; lasting sweet-bitter finish with a well-masked alcoholic strength. Pleasant as usual. 12.XII.12

obguthr (5095) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottled on 4/18/12: Strong medium roast coffee nose. Cola colored, thick billowy beige head. Strong coffee flavor, lightly sweet and roasty, but not fruity. There’s a bit of an off flavor of beans. Finishes with dark chocolate. Alcohol not terribly noticeable. Carbonation is appropriate. Medium body, but a bit thin for the style. I liked the earlier version better.

Reynolds314 (3111) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Good stuff right here. Aroma is rich coffee, light milk chocolate, toffee, and roastyness. Taste is dry and coffee bitter with great robust flavor. Flavor is missing something to keep it from absolute greatness but still a fantastic Imp stout with a beautiful appearance and great aroma.
