Bottle. Pours opaque black with a small dark brown head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving decent lacing. Aroma is roasty, anise, cocoa, molasses. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter, lightly burned, cocoa and roasty notes with perhaps a tiny bit of rubber. Some acidity. Medium plus body, lingering bitter and burned notes. Pretty solid effort.

Bomber, corked and caged. Pours opaque coffee with tan head that lasts. Smells of vanilla, wood, coffee, resin, and anise. Drinks with a mild alcohol bite and moderate lingering bitterness. Tastes of wood, maple, coffee, and dark chocolate. Good effervescence. Lingering coffee flavor.

Received in trade. The appearance was a jet black in color with a two finger off white to tan foamy head that dies within about one minute. The lacing is somewhat clingy yet sporadic with one ring of lacing near the top of the snifter. The smell had dark roasted chocolate mixed well with sticky sweet licorice. The taste was sweet through the previously mentioned flavors with a nice roasty yet sticky aftertaste and dry finish. On the palate, it sits about a medium to heavy with a pretty good carbonation for the Russian Imperial Stout style that gently brushes against my mouth and tongue in a roasty sort of way. Overall, pretty good Russian Imperial Stout well worthy of coming back to.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Tap at Barcade: Near opaque pour with a deep khaki head. Pretty aromatic: chocolaty, roast, fennel, some hop notes. Silky body. Rich roast in the flavor. Soy sauce, char, long roast amd dark chocolate. A straight forward impy with a solid profile.

tcane7 (1660) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2013
2012 bottle. Pours black with 1 finger of mocha head and nice lace. Nose of roasted malt, smoke, chocolate, coffee and booze. Full body with tons of coffee and roasted malt. Better than I was expecting, especially after looking at the bottle that the cork is sticking out way too far.

BlowOffTube (450) - Michigan, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Eh. Pours black with tan head. Smells like dough and yeast. Tastes the same with a hint of roasted chocolate and coffee. Not much to this one.

jkwood04 (3850) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Growler poured into a tulip. Pours black with a lacy, light tan head. Aroma of roasted and chocolate and coffee malts, a nice dough aroma, and light hops. Flavor the same with a lot of dark malts. Smooth texture. A good beer for the style.

ben4321 (3849) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Location: Bottle at Paul’s Blind Impy Stout Tasting, 1/5/13

Aroma: The nose is mostly roasted malts and coffee, underlying earth and chocolate
Appearance: It pours a dark brown/black color with a small light brown head
Flavor: The taste is also on the roasted side, not too sweet, but heavily malty for sure
Palate: The body is medium, but it feels light for the style, with a dry, roasty finish
Overall Impression: This was a solid one overall, but not a favorite for me at the tasting. Still though, it is plenty solid and certainly worth trying.
