Pours jet black. Aroma is very dark and lots of roasted malts, some salmiak tones. Taste is sweet and filled with dark roasted malts and coffee tones, some liquorice. No hints of the massive abv at all. To me it really feels like a great stout suited for additions of both cold brewed coffee and some barrel ageing on bourbon kegs! Got to try the bourbon barrel aged one! Bottle from SB.

Poured from a bottle into my favorite Delirium tremens snifter the thickest most milky dark brown I have ever seen in a stout. Reminds me of muddy water but in a good way. Aroma is roasted cocoa. Flavor is oily like motor oil. Heavy dark chocolate bitter. Mild prunes. To the palate bittersweet. Caramel. Incredible smoothness almost no carbonation. Delicious

gregwilsonstl (1405) - Missouri, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Dark black. Used motor oil. Oil sits on top. Chewy. Lots of thick sediment. Charred. Burnt toast. It’s in your face, exactly like the description says. Quite hoppy for an Impy Stout. Extremely dry.

ciocanelu (142) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 24, 2015
Absolutely opaque black and heavy bodied beer. Aroma of dark roasted malts and some bitter chocolate. Taste starts intense with some sharp, acidic cacao and a bit of soy sauce. Aftertaste is intensely bitter and roasty. Body is extremely viscous and chewy. Alcohol is present but overall the beer is pretty easy to drink at its high ABV.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Aroma is chocolate and coffee. Appearance is of a thick dark brown dirty motor oil. Taste is a bitter dark chocolate with coffee notes. Palate is incredibly viscous. The thickest beer I have ever had. Actually milk shake like. Would go great with a raspberry or marshmallow dish. Overall an excellent brew definitely worth seeking out. Cheers!
