Very dark reddish brown, like black in the glass. Slightly sourness from the cherish. Chocolate and malts. Better as expected... On the other hand... it’s H&V, i’m just not that a big fan of cherries...

Vaiz (3284) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2014
Bottle. Black pour. Aroma of licorice, tobacco, leather, pipe, motor oil, peat, whiskey, burnt malts and spicy caramel. Flavor is heavily peated, booze, bitter and with a hint of cherries. Quite out of balance and a bit harsh.

24/XII/13 - 75cl bottle @ De Hopduvel (Gent) - BB: no dates (2013-1176) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown beer, no head, just a small island of big bubbles floating in the middle of the glass. Aroma: alcohol, disinfectant, bit chemical, caramel, mocha, sugary, hint of charcoal. MF: no carbon, full body. Taste: sweet start, then the alcohol kicks your teeth out of your mouth, bitter hops, roasted malts, bit chemical, yeasty touch. Aftertaste: lots and lots of alcohol, coffee, very bitter hops, slightly fruity, dark chocolate, bit sour, charcoal. Could not find a trace of cherries in it. :-(

Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of cherries, wood, booze, chocolate, licorice and coffee. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of licorice, cherries, wood and chocolate. Medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Quite nice.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Almost opaque dark brown beer with a small pale tan head. Smooth palate with light fine carbonation. Nice rich dark malt that is not at all heavy. Touch of dark chocolate and cherry. Mellow alcohol spice. Light dry finish. Tasty. For anyone who paid less than ten euros for this - I hope it gave you a hangover!

Scopey (6290) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle cheers to Colin & Ken. It pours black with a small tan head. The nose is rich roast, coffee cake, chocolate, sponge cake, toffee, vanilla yoghurt and tangy berry. The taste is rich roast, toast, toffee, coconut, vanilla, fudge, berry, warming alcohol and coffee. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. A big fat Impy stout for sure. Of course a bit sweet for the likes of me, but tasty anyhow.
