UPDATED: MAY 21, 2005 [GABF 2004 first beer!!!!] A pitch black beer with no head. The aroma is sweet roasty with notes of alcohol, chocolate, and coffee. The flavor is also very sweet with notes of prunes, alcohol, coffee, and chocolate, leading to a very dry, woody finish.

(Handbottled 35,5 cl) Pours completely black and opaque with a pretty much absent head. Also the carbonation pretty much got lost in the handbottling process. Fat aroma of roasted malt and dried fruit - very vinous, sort of like the Amarone of the beer world. Extremely full-bodied, pours thick like tar. Wonderfully complex woth lots of raisins, sweet roasted malt, oak, vanilla, bourbon and a burning alcohol. Even without the carbonation this is a grand beer indeed. Wauw. 191206

(Tap at brewery) Pours a very dark brown body (almost black) with some deep mahogany highlights and a spare tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. Smooth, chocolately, slick & oily, and a bit thin for an Impy.

Thanks to ericandersnavy for this. Pours black with a few brownish bubbles. Smells an awful lot like sweet bourbon and burnt malt. Full bodied. Tastes an awful lot like sweet bourbon and burnt malt, and there is some definite oak. I also think there is a dark fruit aspect - and I’m going for dried plum pit. Damn, but it is a tasty thing.

Growler at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Thank you! Pours clear, dark brown with a thick, yellow-brown cream head. Standard dark malt nose, hints of alcohol and cocoa. Big sweet flavor, boozy kick, burnt wood, earthy bitterness, some cocoa. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Warm finish, lots of dark malt sugars, earthy and burnt leafy bitterness, some sugar chocolate, decent stuff overall.
