rickgordon (3845) - GŲteborg, - DEC 19, 2013
Bottled. Black with creamy tan head. Rich aroma with heavy chocolate up front, followed by coffee, caramel and light light vineous. Flavour is heavy malty and chewy - and rich! There is chocolate, leather, coffee and caramel. Bitterness is medium-high. Big body with good residual sugars. Excellent beer!

probstblueribbon (3160) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2015
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Deep brown black with a decent mocha head. Aroma: All the rich aromas that one should expect from an Impy Stout...molasses, coffee, black chocolate, booze, slightly ashen/smoky, grape-like fruitiness, also a tangy fruitiness, faint licorice. Palate: Medium-full body, somewhat restrained carbonation. Flav.: Deep and rich, lots of dark chocolate, molasses, grape fruitiness, only very slightly smoky/ashen, black coffee, quite good; sweet with big bitterness and a long, mouth-coating finish of rich, dark malts.

Quite the name and quite the beer!

minutemat (1976) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2015
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours black with a fluffy tan head. Lovely toffee and marzipan aroma. Thick and oily mouthfeel. Big heavy chocolate taste with espresso notes and smooth roasted elements. Very much enjoyed this.

harrisoni (14355) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from The Bottle Shop London and drunk at home. Black beer lasting tan head. Big chocolate aroma, some booze too. In the mouth itís mostly chocolate and alcohol. I mean itís not overly subtle or complex. Itís a big roast chocolate beer. Has a shade of Speyside whisky to the aroma. Itís big. Bold. Bit too boozy for me I think. Itís a sipper and as I read my book itís a good beer to have a sip of from time to time, but not really my thing.

leaparsons (8478) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Very dark brown with a thin beige foam. Aromas are earthy coffee with dark toffee and soy sauce. Raisins with chocolate and marzipan alcohol. Blackberries with woody yeast. Flavours are sweet chocolate with rich, smooth coffee and a light smokiness. Slick oily and slightly meaty with a spicy, peppery alcohol finish. Hints of vegetable fat. Good.

domienS (167) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - FEB 19, 2015
Pours a thick black beer with a big dark brown fine head. Smells dark malts, chocolate, coffee and a hint of vanilla. Tastes malt bitter. Leaves a bitter palate, big mouth feel and clear touch of alcohol. Really intense imperial stout!
