Draft @ the Brewery and from Growler. Dark brown - nearly black color with a small tan head. Aroma has a nice, roasty coffee-chocolate mix with some tapioca and very sweet fruit detectable, plus some alcohol. Flavor is very roasty with some heavy coffee, malts, cocolate, and dark bread. A bit of alcohol taste and finish, but overall pretty good. Nice Impy.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2012 rerate had this today Jessica out did her self on this batch, the only thing I can add is that I got dark cherries to flavor. from the tap at the brewery. 1st let me say thank you Jessica for brewing this beer it rocked, I would like to get some bottles of this. This was as good or a little better than your other beer. that said poured black with mahogany edge with a dark tan head. aroma alcohol which is 12.5 on the menu. a lot of roasted malts and chocolate with some strong coffee. flavor the alcohol really comes out strong and it was difficult to get some of the other flavors out but as it warmed up the roasted malts and coffee came out the chocolate did come out when I left the beer in my mouth for a few seconds. over I think this was a awesome beer and as far as I know this is Jessica 2nd brew

Tap @ GTMW. Opaque and black with a determined tan head. Aroma sings with unsweetened chocolate morsels, blackened fudge, crisp coconut shavings and a hint of sweet cream and tapioca nibblets. Burnt vanilla wafers droll in the distance. Flavor comes in large and defiantly, ringing with dark chocolate and hints of burnt coconut. Vanilla teams with singed hazelnuts to produce a conglomerate of sweet and bitter burnt flavors. Full bodied and and wearing its weight well. Toasted mocha and graham cracker crumbs disperse on the palate in a finish that’s reminiscent of melted and burnt s’mores.

On tap at the brewery. Poured black with a small tan head. Smelled roasty with some chocolate. Taste was much the same, with huge roasty element, nice coffee notes. I really enjoyed this stout.

Tmoney99 (11915) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Draft sample at MBGF07. Poured a black color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Heavy roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Good complex roasted flavor with a medium burnt finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew.

BBB63 (6449) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 2, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2007 RERATE Bottle: The flavor was much better with sweet chocolate and fruity tones over a coffee, ashy, and hop spice finish. The mouth feel is better as well oily and lush without all the booze as before. +1 Aroma, +2 Flavor, +1 Palate, +2 Overall.

MiBGF 07: Mostly black with a nice tan foam for a head. The aroma has notes of earthy yeast esters, roasted and chocolate malts, mint leaves, grassy hops, and tobacco vapours. The taste is a tad too boozy and mineral laden which made it hard to find the malt and hop characteristics. Smoky and woody finish did help somewhat. The mouth feel is very aggressive, biting, and spritzy. Okay but it is missing that something wonderful.
