KeefOz (1072) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - APR 23, 2015
Tasted 11/4/15 at La Colchoneria, Madrid, Spain. Poured an opaque black with no head and no lacing. Aroma of sweet dark caramel with hints of chocolate and coffee plus some yeast and too much alcohol. Taste of sweetness and roasted grain followed by a slight bitterness and lots of alcohol. Medium body. Smooth and sweet with a lingering sweetness, a lingering moderate bitterness and lingering alcohol. Good except for the very obvious presence of alcohol.

Filipbeer (113) - - FEB 16, 2015
Deep black color with a very low head. Roasty aromas (chocolate and coffee) and resins and dry fruits. Balanced but not very complex. In mouth it is bit sweet at the beginning but it turns into bitter. Medium-low body does not compensate the bitterness. Alcohol is too important in mouth. Dry and quite long ending. Good aroma, unbalanced mouth

fiulijn (15990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle at Pedale, Madrid, may 2013, lot 219, bb 29-3-2014
Black color, medium sized brownish head. Very nice nice aroma, roasted malt, vinous, a bit creamy. Smooth mouthfeel; soft roasted malts, with some vanilla and quite some liquorice; some leather too; correct bitterness. Just a bit too much liquorice for me, but very good.

Jow (2496) - New York, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Tap at The Jeffrey coming in from rain felt like a stout despite the heat. Pours dark brown with pretty head. Nose of dark malt and chocolate. Tastes of chocolate cake, licorice, malt, cherry and plum, and caramel. Not too sweet with alcohol warming. Nice sipper

angelkostvo (793) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 31, 2014

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 26, 2014
In short: A rich mixture of molasses and soy sauce. Ok sipper.
How: Bottle at El Pedal, Madrid.
The look: Black body topped by a persistent small tan head.
In long: Nose is rich black malts with black liquorice, tar and molasses. In mouth the beer is full body with an appropriate smooth carbonation, thick velvety mouthfeel. Taste is cake malts, soy sauce, overcooked caramel, molasses, moderate herbal hops presence. A bit sticky in the after-taste even if there is a decent bitterness to balance the sweetness. This is a 8% Impy Stout that feels bigger than its size, feels like a 10% sipper, a pleasant sipper. I bet when this brewery make a kick-ass beer they call it a Reptile success, when they screw-up a batch they call it a Reptile dysfunction.

DanielBrown (4034) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle from friend. Light bodied, but sweet, rich and great to drink. Has some warming qualities, but clearly a strong Stout, rather than a genuine Impy.

MrHangover (3056) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2014
Bottle, thnx to BRW. Pours a very black, almost pitch black beer with a small brown head on top. Aroma has loads of chocolate, molasses and caramel, very sugary and touches of licorice. Flavor is very sweet, lots of licorice again, giving that dry sweet sticky finish. No alcohol burn detected, a bit cloying mouthfeel overall. Soft carbonation, good drinkability. Quite nice!
