Bottle from Beers of Europe. Blacker than Thatcher’s heart pour with a thick, creamy tan head. Raisins, bonfire toffee, plain chocolate and burnt sugar aromas. Most alluring indeed. Smoky-dry flavours of dark roast coffee and chocolate. Quite sticky. Dry as Jack Dee’s wit finish. I love me Impys and this is up there with the best of ’em!
