Thick and strong with loads of chocolate and coffe. Balanced carbo, heavy back and a nice alcohol background. Classy one for the ones who love those darker beers.

500ml bottle pours deep black color with a finger of light brown head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and coffee with hints of dark fruit. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a dark chocolate malty sweetness. Full bodied with moderate carbonation which pleases the palate nicely. Only problem for me was a little too much coffee, since I am not too fond of coffee.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2014 500ml bottle at home. Pours black with amazing foam head that remains throughout the tasting. Beautiful to look at! I love stouts with lots of consistent foam (not too airy but binded). Aroma is the best : wood and slight smells of barrel agedness. I must say that the taste fails to intrigue after several sips. Now, it doesn’t disappoint and goes well with the aroma, but there is something off here. Hoppy and burnt malt, roast, wood, cinnamon, resin. I’d love a more bold batch with one of these fine elements more pronounced. Nonetheless, great Impy!

Je ne suis pas un grand amateur de stouts, mais je suis toujours curieux de pouvoir en essayer une bien notée. Celle-ci me plait moyennement, je doit avouer. Les notes classiques de café/chocolat et mélasse se mélangent avec une autre tirant légèrement vers les légumes marinés dans l’huile. Elle cache bien son alcool, est bien amère et bien ronde.

DWG; Pour almost black with a for ever lasting, lacing tan head. Nose is tons of roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark coffee, licorice, honey and over ripe fruit. Taste is heavy sweet, still fruity balancing, warming and forever sweet cocolate and licorice lasting. Body is full, texture is silk, carbonation is flat to soft. What a beer, surprise and awesome.

500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, some chocolate and coffee, hints of dark fruits, some light hops, and some dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend of it all. Smoother texture. A pretty good imperial stout.
