Completely opaque black with a small brown head. Smell smoke, coffee, dark malts, chocolate, roasty. Taste soft, coffee, roasty, burned malts. Very much smokey aftertaste. Very good balance, alcohol well hidden. Full body with soft but good carbonation. Suits the beer, good stuff!

mcberko (11861) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours black. Chocolate, smoke, licorice and burnt roasted malt on the nose. Flavour is extremely smoky, with iodine, oak and roasted malt. Too much iodine and smoke - doesn’t seem like it’s as good as it should be, based on other ratings and deScriptions. Still good though.

thewolf (11827) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2009
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.
