bubbleflubber (2058) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2011
Pours an opaque molasses black with an initially frothy brown head that reduces to nothing, a nothing that leaves light webbed lacing. The nose is of dark chocolates and roasted coffee beans. Flavors abound of deep luscious caramel, roasted coffee beans, Sanka notes, vanilla, smoked grains and light vinous cherries on the back end. The finish is of roasted bitter grains with estery vinous accents. The body is full, with a smooth drinkability and substantive, complex character. One of the best Impy Stouts I’ve tried, and very true to style and form... big, bold, roasted and grand on the pull. Prost!

nuplastikk (5171) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Draft at Alchemy. Thick, opaque brown-black, nice rusty beige head. Sweet chocolate coffee aroma. Lots of coffee taste, quite well done. Soft carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Vanilla, coffee, chocolate. Lots of syrupy sweetness. More mellow and more depth than typical Flying Dog product. Really well executed beer.

Pretty nice stout this is. Pours black as one could expect. Smells and tastes really roasty, black, chocolate.. Pretty intense, but well balanced.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle from Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville. Pours black with a creamy, attractive--but not very big--bright tan head. Yes, I said "bright tan." Nose shows sweet roast, nutty sweet coffee, and tons of chocolate. Some hops trying to pierce their way through all the malt and coffee. Taste adds maple syrup and dark fruit notes. Sweet as hell, but I like it. Thin, velvety palate.

mattyb83 (737) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Tripphop over on BA. Deep brown in color with a small khaki head. Head quickly fades into a small collar around the edge of the beer. Aroma contains chocolate, vanilla, some roasted malts, but coffee... not so much. Maybe a sweeter coffee that I don’t drink much of I guess. Sweet chocolate, cream, some cocoa pebbles, slightly astringent finish. A little thinner bodied than I had expected. I think this is a solid beer, but never do I get the feeling that this is a coffee beer. Also, still no erection. At this point I’m guessing I could have an 8/10 looking stripper grinding on me and likely not get an erection. Sad, as I was at half mast just due to anticipation before drinking the Royal Virility Performance.

12oz Bottle, Batch 2. Shared with mattyb83. Pours dark brown/black with a tan head. Aroma consisting of dark chocolate, nuts, wood, slight coffee (but not very much), some vanilla. Smells similar to a Nestle crunch ice cream bar right before you bite into one. Not a lot of coffee in the flavor either. Slightly creamy, roasted malt, sweet vanilla, chocolate all dominate the flavor with just a tad of coffee on the finish. Should maybe rename this, Latte stout.

LomYst (658) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2011
pitchblack, almost headless, pours like oil.... aroma is smokey, contains coffee, bread, iodine and some fresh malts, aroma is complex but not very intense.....taste is bitter and a bit sour, has hints of coffee not overly complex.. finish, although not that long, is much more sofisticated with an intense coffee flavour, lots of bitterness and a sweet and warming finish... the palate is brilliant, this beer is insanely thick, oily yet pretty lively... very unique beer, delicious

Poured from a chilled 12 oz single purchased at Beckley’s liquor along route 15 in Frederick MD (near intersection with Willow Rd). Excellent deep dark pour with rich mahogany head. Head fades eventually to nothing, but very impressive in the glass. Aroma of roasted nuttiness. Taste was more chocolate than coffee when cold. Upon warming the coffee comes through more clearly. Hnts of vanilla. Body was mid to full and the feel was quite creamy. Finsh is smooth roast with plenty of coffee; no bitterness or burn. Nice work all around.
