Nice thick and heavy coffee stout with alot of roast in the coffee. Very high in alcohol and hard to get down but very nicely made for the style, just not my favorite.

12 oz bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Fairfax, VA. Not sure why this isn’t sold in a 4 pk - only single bottles for ~$3. Light black pour with ruby highlights and a quarter inch tan head - develops into a nice creamy lacing throughout. Great nose filled with coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla and roasted malts. Medium body - very creamy and smooth. More chocolate, deep coffee and vanilla throughout the mouth. Sweet and smooth finish with dark fruit layers along with more chocolate / coffee. Great flavorful Coffee Imperial Stout.

bubbleflubber (2069) - 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 (5253) - 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.

DutchDrebus (5093) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
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.
