Black color, thin brown head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts and chilli. Taste is medium sweet, lightly sour, chocolate and chilli. Taste is rather flat. Low carbonation. Its ok, but I had higher expectation.

karpik (406) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 10, 2016
Aroma of chocolate, coffee, some vanilla and roasted malts. Pours pitch black with tan head which quikly disappears. Taste is medium dry, quite flat with chocolate and coffee, finish is spicy but not exaggerated. Overall it deffinitely lacks more body and complexity in taste. Not bad but I am expecting more from Impies.

MarcoDL (3627) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle. Black pour. Heavy aroma of spices, chili, paprika and some roast. Strong flavor of spicey herbs, paprika, earthy vanilla, roasted malt, subtle licorice and a chili burn that slowly burns in intensity, leaving a long burning finish. Really heavy stuff, hard to drink, but tasty.

cfrancis (2952) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Pours pitch black with a small brown wisp and ring. Aroma is a bouquet of roasted malt, cocoa with a slight chili hint. Taste is rich cocoa and chocolate, licorice and light roasted malt. Afterwards there is a general warming from the chili. Really interesting beer and surprisingly complex.

Bosskie (688) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 20, 2016
Pitch black, huge creamy dark brown grey head, nice carbonation. Smell is leather salty iodine. Fenugreek, cheese, eggs, liquorice... very interesting! Mint? Taste is leather, resin, ash. Warm and fizzy. Bitter balances very well against the oily creamy chocolate coffee base. Chili veggie taste. Slight warmth in the throat towards the end. Crisp and fresh.

Bottle from LCBO. In cellar for about a year. Strong aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, molasses, coffee, red bell pepper. Flavours of molasses, chocolate, smoky hickory, hint if red bell pepper. Very smooth light mouth feel. Spice kicks in in the aftertaste. The flavours arent really working for me, but its not terrible.

Erasmus_ro (2267) - Alabama, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Tap @ BrewDog Helsinki. Pours black with a small, dark latte colored head. Aroma is smoke, ash, pepper, liquorice, peat, herbalness. Taste is herbalness and vegetable/pepper. Chili pepper. Roast smoke, some tar, maybe slight oregano? Fairly light really, thin, slight burn begins at the end of your throat.
