Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, - NOV 15, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2012 Bottle 33 cl. Oily and massively thick black with a reddish hue and a tiny orange-brown head. Aroma is sweet Finnish licorice, and dark fermented sugary prunes. Taste is sweet roast, thickend syrup and dark dried prunes, some tobacco accents. Massive body, low carbonation, no real bitterness, but a very big, long licoricy finnish. Exceptional!

KIK. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana średniej wielkości - beżowa. Aromat nie powala swoją intensywnością. Złożony czekolada, kakao, gorzka czekolada. Piwo oznaczające się słodyczą. Smak bardzo złożony. Wszystko to co w aromacie jest również w smaku tylko z intensywnością do kwadratu. Wysycenie wysokie, goryczka wysoka, niezalegająca, punktowa. Konsystencja bardzo lepka, smaki niezalegające, które rozpływają się w ustach. Alkohol genialnie ukryty. Zadziwia ogromna pijalność. Pomimo upału za oknem nie odmówiłem sobie skosztowania.

Koffie en cacao. Veel alcoholwarmte ("boozy") en geroosterde moutbitterheid in de afdronk. Mooi sticky mondgevoel. Lekker dessertbier!

muzzlehatch (4466) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2016
16 ounce can from Badger Spirits in Janesville, WI, consumed at cellar temp from a Maudite glass. Totally opaque, thick, viscous motor-oil pour with a dark maple head that nearly fills the glass and subsides reluctantly...deep, dark-chocolate, vanilla in the nose, hints of pepper and tarragon, quite roasty-toasty, could be a bit more forward but pleasant enough - and this is the first Impy I’ve had in months, so I’m happy in any case with the intensity that there is, shouldn’t spoil for more I suppose....later on a bit of cherry and licorice develop, this is getting nice...on the tongue it’s all toasted/burnt malts at the front, with a sherry character developing eventually, a bit of lactic sourness towards the finish, plenty of chocolate throughout and a warming, milky texture as it goes down. Overall this is quite lovely and reminds me of what really attracted me to big beers originally...and the alcohol is barely apparent apart from that warming environment. It’s nearly a hundred degrees outside, but with the thunder roaring and the A/C on and a firebrand yelling on TV, somehow only a beer like this works in these waning days of July.

Sdaniel90 (867) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JUL 19, 2016
Bottle, 65cl. Opaque dark brown with a creamy to minimal brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, dried fruits, banana, alcohol. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Thick and creamy. Medium to heavy sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Harsh coffee and alcohol flavors. Not the most drinkable, but delicious, heavy and complex.
