COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This black in color imperial stout’s aro-ma is lead by coffee and dry roasty notes. Crème Brulè coffee is brewed and added post-fermentation. This killer stout is highly sought after at every tasting we take it to.

Subtle aroma, great taste, a little sweet, but not too sweet. Clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hivemind (890) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Tap @ Barcade for Kuhnhenn event w James and Andy. Dark red-brown pour, murky. Aroma is heavy heavy coffee and flavor is underwhelmingly so. Notes of coffee but heavy booze and heavy tobacco/ash. Smells like a creme brulee dessert but disappointed thereafter.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Draft. Aroma has notes of bitter espresso, vanilla, custard and brown sugar. Black hue with an average light tan head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is very sweet and bittler. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft. Overall a lovely brew that’s much better than the non-Impy version.

markwise (5168) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Growler courtesy of GatorGuy92. Cheers, Matt! Pours a dark brown with a tiny tan head. Nose is roasted malt, coffee, some dark fruit, some lactose, and cafe con leche. Flavor is similar with coffee, roast, dark fruit, and some lactose. Medium in body and lingering coffee and dark fruit in the finish.

jckp64 (356) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2012
Pours black with a light tab head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts. Almost smells like ice cream. Flavor is very little coffee. It’s pretty sweet and light for a stout. Pretty odd beer. Not sure what to think about this one

ICEatALAMO (1300) - Troy, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2012
Draft at brewery. I feel bad that the rating overall is a little skewed, but the aroma is so enjoyable I couldn’t help but give it a perfect score. The taste is enjoyable, kind of actually light for a stout, smooth. Good enough to get a growler fill because I just did!

Marheb (4773) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2012
À la pompe au Decicco: La tournée du barman (on venait d’acheter pour 300$ de bières quand même)...Arôme incroyable de crème brûlé, noisette, vanille et torréfaction. En bouche c’est moyen tirant vers le plein avec un côté torréfié qui dépasse les sucres pour donner une balance bien spéciale.

kevinsenn (1971) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
On tap at Kuhnhenn brewery. Black with a light brown head. Smells just like coffee ice cream. Sweet, roasty, creamy, with a dry finish. Medium body, and a little too flat for my liking. Not terribly "imperial", but good nonetheless.

amg800 (237) - Ada, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2011
Pitch black with caramel colored head. Strong coffee and sweet aroma. Bitter coffee flavor. Bitter sweet palate strong coffee again. Not sure how the creme brule works itself in?

Plovmand (7810) - Helsinge, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours opague black with a reddish tan head. The aroma is heavy coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, chocolate cookies and brownies. The flavour is very bitter roasted coffee with a sour acidic touch. Notes of chocolate, cookies and some acidic berries. Bit weird flavour.
