omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 17, 2008
Bottled at Ølbaren, Copenhagen Transparently black, brief head. Unusual aroma of dusty strawberries and tobacco. There’s sweet malt and somelight coffee. Surprisningly slim with lots of ester. Gets more comlicated as it goes: salty chocolate with candied strawberry and bubblegum. Finishes with salty licorice. Interesting, but complicated.

Cloudy dark brown - red beer. Barleywine like nose. Soft palate with very moderate carbonation. Feels and looks more like a barleywine than an Impy. Rich soft malt, dark toffee and caramel. Light hops. A hint of bubblegum. A sumptuous beer but really not an Impy for me - a very good barleywine!

fiulijn (14381) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2010
2010-01-30, bottle #111 from March/May 2008, 2 years old, 81 EBU (IBU?), OG 1102 FG 1023, 8-4-8-4-16=40
Messy wax on the cork, I don’t even think that would help the cellaring life. The cork explodes, and it pours a black color with a large head; the bottle keeps slowly gushing. The aroma is mild but nice, moslty with chocolate, but also hops and very light cheese rind. There is still too much carbonation to fully appreciate the flavor, but the chocolate is quite good; with the ageing, there is more liquorice and very light astringency; the whole gets mellower with some breathing, and rounder, sweeter, still keeping the chocolate qualities, and allowing the hop to show more. Not refined, but very good.

2008-05-16, corked bottle at Ølfestival 2008, Århus, fresh bottle


2008-05-16, corked bottle at Ølfestival 2008, Århus, end of bottle, 7-3-8-3-14=35
Dark brown color. Still not complete, it has a malt and caramel aroma, strong caramel flavor, quite sweet, with a good bitterness, a bit raw. Lacks in complexity.
