COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

ABS (869) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2016
Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. Very dark brown to black body. Dark brown head, surprisingly big for a beer at 12% ABV. Red fruit and chocolate nose. Heavy alcohol nose if you sniff too deep, almost burned away my nose hairs. Dark red fruit and chocolate flavour. Roasted malt and coffee. Liquorice and some alcohol. Sugar, candy. Very sweet, with quite a bitter, sort of balancing, ending. Extremely thick body. Almost edible. Soft carbonation. Complex and extreme.

MiP (15187) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2016
Draught, 12% at Ølsnedkeren Århus. Strong coffee aroma. Smells like thick, syrupy wort. Black colour. Small stable brown head. The flavour is sweet and spicy. Quite sugary with smoke and tar and marmalade. A little hop bite in the finish, but does not seem very bitter to me. Late chocolate bitterness in the finish, though. Too sweet, in my opinion, but good.

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.

muzzlehatch (4468) - 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.
