650ml bottle @ ISKTR

Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma of roasty malts, burnt notes, hints of licorice and ash. Taste is smooth, sweetish and heavy with loads of licorice, ash and burnt roasty malts. Finish is smooth, roasty and burnt with some ash, licorice and leather. Too burnt.

Generous amounts of coffee cocoa and caramel in nose and flavors. Finishes slightly sweet and thick, great for style.

Thanks to gregwislonstl for sharing this one. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma has roast, soy, dark chocolate and dark caramel. It has a medium/full body with some light carbonation. The flavor starts with dark chocolate, ice cream malt, some spices, anise and astringency. The finish has spices, dry cocoa and roast. Nice.

Good coffee aroma. Some licorice. Taste good but cloying sweet. Low level carbonation. Seems under fermented. Ok effort, may be age in bottle.

A dark, brown pour with a huge, brown head. The aroma has molasses, chocolate, brown sugar, and mild coffee. It has a full body with chewy texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet all the way through.

The aroma is very nice with molasses, licorice, coffee, and chocolate. The appearance is black with a thin tan head. The taste is like the aroma but very bitter and astringent. Its almost like tar. The palate is typical for the style. Overall not a great beer but has some good qualities of an impy.

Sampled from a bottle purchased in Las Vegas. Black as pitch with a thick tan head. Aromas are not particularly strong, and the taste is of very charred malts. Flavours of coffee and dark chocolate. Heavy bitterness and strong taste of alcohol. This beer lacks the smooth sweetness of some Imperial Stouts, but is powerful and characterful. I would give it a higher mark if the flavours came together a little better.
