wetherel (1863) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Sample from tap at San Clemente. Thick foamy head reminiscent of nitro, but it was served on CO2. Black color. Medium to thick body. Chocolatey, malty, little to no roastiness. Light sweetness, but finishes dry. Very easy to drink. Alcohol very well hidden. Wow. Excellent! Get a growler while you can!

Mortlach (1920) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 10, 2012
22/11/2012 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Thanksgiving Day. Nera, impenetrabile, densa, schiuma color cappuccino, molto scura, non molto abbondante ma persistente. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, caffé, cioccolata e liquirizia. In bocca ha un attacco dolce, cioccolatoso, e un finale di liquirizia e caffé, amaro e lungo. Corpo medio-pieno, carbonazione abbondante, alcol incredibilmente nascosto. Imperial stout magistrale, per nulla estrema, ma di grande sostanza ed equilibrio.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 3, 2009
Draught, Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Super dark black color with dark tan foam. Aroma showcases burnt dark fruit, molasses, chocolate. Flavor is tremendously big, complex, with a lot of malt. Char, coffee, chocolate, along with a big dose of piney, resinous hops. This just worked.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2011 (Draught) Pours an opaque dark brown (near black) with tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, fudge, vanilla, and coffee. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, hops (earthy), and toasted grains with a creamy, smooth finish. Nice Impy!

Ungstrup (34328) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2010
Draft. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, chocolate, roasted malt, and coffee. The flavor is swet with strong notes of chocolate combined with medium notes of malt, coffee, wood, and soy sauce, as well as lighter notes of hops and citrus fruits. The alcohol tickles the palate.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 5, 2012
Parte con uno degli aromi più potenti che mi sia capitato di sniffare, poi quando la si beve si percepisce un liquirizione eccessivo che rovina un po’ tutto. Non ne berrei più di 20cl e va bene così.
