Bottle. [thank you mum, dad and bigbro]
Pours completely black with a great, creamy, dark-brown head. Great duration. Aroma is wonderful, lots of coffee and roasted malts. Light rubber, some smoked notes, chocolate and flowery hops. Lowish carbonation, light mouthfeel and fairly creamy. Quite sweet flavour. Primarily chocolate and smoke. Some coffee-like bitterness. Long dryness and some viniousness. Very nice Impy, though it probably is just a tad too sweet.

Black with a lasting tan head. Roasted aroma of licorice and ink with a mild touch of smoke. Sweet licorice and smoke flavour. The sweetness could easily get cloying

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
Pours nearly black in color with a tall tan head. It’s certainly smokey. There is quite a bit of roasted malt and a touch of salted nuts. Pretty simple and straightforward aroma. A light sweetness on the palate; some toffee and a bit of chocolate to go with lots of roasted malt and smoke. There is a slight alcohol flavor in the background.
