Well there isn’t a lot of room for variety in the appearance of an impy, so really I tend to judge on the creamy appeal - and this had it. Black with the lasting thick tan head that I love. Roasted coffee prevails although there are some malty choco notes too. Solid. Mouthfeel turned out to be a little thin and mild considreing the initial impressions - Something sweet emerges alongside the evident chocolate nad the the mouth-coating finish leaves you with a touch of coffee again. Decent but not as powerful as an Impreial stout could be.

Goldorak (439) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2005
Blacker than grim death, with a cappuccino head. Quite vinious, some dark fruits, blackberries and prunes to be precise, it then had a charred aroma that quickly morphed into creamy milk chocolate. Rich, but not overwhelmingly so, it had fruity character with roasted malts and a decent coffee style bitter mouthfeel.

Yeah, it’s not very over-the-top, many local brewpubs have more flashy offerings in this style, but this one has more balance and doesn’t overwhelm your tastebuds, so that’s why I keep coming back for more time and time again.

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 12, 2005
Chocolate, coffee, and toasted, and burnt malt notes in this one. A noticeable alcohol prescence (7.5% abv, and worth it). Loads of body and mouthfeel. Pleasant hopping, rather light. Lasting head. Creamy texture and soft carbonation, bitter and metallic aftertaste. Great appearance. Lovely beer.

draught. plush black body with a creamy mocha-coloured head. aroma has chocolate, sweet malt, and some roastiness that becomes more apparent as it warms up. sweet start mellows into a milky roasty body. silky smooth. masked alcohol. chocolately finish. it’s a little bit mellow for the style and doesn’t have that huge in your face palate of many other imperial stouts but I still found it to be quite enjoyable.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2005 On draught at the brewpub, 4/16/05 with MartinT and Olivier. Deep brown-black colored beer with an initial light tan head, that is mostly dissipating. Aroma of black malt, roast coffee, yeast, fuggles and dark chocolate. A hint of light molasses/brown sugar as well. Flavor begins with roast, light chocolate and lots of yeast. Hints of dark fruits from the barley and yeast. Body is medium, not overly watery, not overly thick. A bit of wood, Spanish coffee and more chocolate through the middle. Flavor is certainly strong, yet on the finish, a dry toffee, strong tobacco and bland yeast all mix together to create, on my palate, all of the joys of a cigarette dropped in my drink. I couldn’t finish this one, but happily traded Martin for his Cerny Hora (and then had another cerny hora, and then later threw up). Maybe I should stop rating Lamere a boire’s dark beers. I just don’t seem to get along with them.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2005
Robe noire surmontée d’une mousse onctueuse (azote) beige très persistente. Saveurs douces de caramel, de café et, légèrement, de cacao. Houblon de soutien. L’alcool ne paraît pas vraiment. J’aime bien.

A very smooth and easy drinking stout with lots of sweet malt and roasty cofee. Definitly enjoyed this one.

pivo (2556) - GERMANY - MAR 19, 2005
TAP: Peaty, roasted malt nose - woody and charcoal-like too. Jet black color with a low tan head. Amazing sweet malt taste countered by the roasted malt. Black cherry tastes tucked away in the middle. Complex but beautifully balanced. Medium body. Slight alcohol presence intensifies the flavor profile. Nice one.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2005
on tap at the brewpub, the last of 8 beers sampled in this session, and definitely saved the best for last. the pour was solid black and viscous looking. the head was thick, tan, and creamy, almost like it should have been on a nitro beer. a huge aroma of coffee and roasts comes out of the glass. as you drink it, it really does have a viscosity, a chewy mouthfeel that echos the robust body. the taste is strong with coffee, tailing away into sweet chocolates, and a slightly burnt flavor. the tail end was slightly bitter, as expected, but balanced nicely by the burnt tones. if peche mortel hadn’t blown my mind the night before i had this, it would easily have been the best beer i had from the 3 brewpubs i visited.

hobgoblin (163) - St-Épiphane, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2006 Draft. Deep dark color, with tan head. Dark chocolat aroma. This beer is creamy, tasty, taste of coffee and roasted malt, sweet, easy to drink. De couleur noir foncé avec un collet brun. Odeur de chocolat noire. Au goût, elle est onctueuse, crémeuse, vraiment invitante, gout de café et de malt grillé, elle est douce pour une stout, facile a boire.
