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.
