Bottle from Beautiful Beers, Bury St Edmunds. Mahogany with a beige head. Sweet molasses aroma. The taste is sweet with treacle and liquorice flavours. Mild spice too. Simple, but tasty.

Cybion (103) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Bottle, 750 ml. Pours very dark brown with almost no head. Fairly murky. Lots of wholemeal bread and roasted malt on the nose with a backdrop of black coffee, cake and caramel. Alcohol is extremely prominent and perhaps a little overpowering, though from the ABV this wasn’t unexpcted. Right on the edge s of the aroma there’s also something vaguely meaty, reminding me of roast beef monster munch. Taste is a bit simpler, being by and large comprised of sweeter notes like honey, caramel, and muscavado. Finish is quite abrupt though some malty bitterness is present alongside some more bread. Alcohol is prominent again. Thick and smooth on the palate with no carb and a full body. Definitely a pleasant brew but I like my imperial stouts to have a bit more depth of flavour.

StueyD (1549) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2015
A dark brown coloured beer with reddish tints and an off white head. A surprisingly light burnt malt aroma, treacle, dark chocolate, coffee, then a vinous and meaty aroma comes through. Medium mouthfeel. A mouth filling burnt malt taste, all the malty elements from the aroma come through especially the chocolate, but the vinous flavours are a touch more dominant, with a winey, sherry like flavour, dry grape, plus a touch of smoke and spice. The finish is long and lingering with all the elements staying around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MrBlueSky93 (504) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours Black with single finger tan coloured head. Aroma of alcohol, cream, chocolate, smokiness, coffee, dark fruits. Low carbonation, quite smooth. Light and smooth malts to start, then some chocolate, dark fruits, coffee, some light sweetness, perhaps vanilla and a wee kick on the abv to finish. Very good!

The_Osprey (4852) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
75cl bottle picked up last year at a staggeringly reasonable £4. Bottled Sep 2012. Black beer with a small off-white head. Aroma - yeast, alcohol, milk chocolate, smoke, coffee. Body - medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste - very smooth malts, chocolate, some red berry, light vanilla, whisky-and-coke, no alcohol. Just ultra-smooth. Much better than expected. It’s not often my girlfriend likes an imperial stout, but this is one of those rare occasions.

SilverfoX (871) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
massive chocolate aroma, black body with brown edges rich smooth and that lethal strength lurking in there, one of the very best.

Very Nice Impy Stout!
