22oz bomber courtesy of swalden28. Badass label art to begin with. Pours a black body with a tan head thats sticky and clingy--Sweet! Aroma of bourbon, alcohol, vanilla, fresh coffee and roastiness. Flavor of chocolate, bitter coffee, hint of piney hops and medium sweetness. Medium to full mouthfeel with fine carbonation. A very good, slightly hoppy Impy.

Bottle thanks to swalden28. Possibly the most bad ass looking bottle ever! Pours inky black with a deep brown head and a black body. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, creamer, alcohol and raisin. Taste is chocolate, a touch metallic and quite earthy. Creamy mouthfeel, syrupy body.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours black with a thick dark tan head. Aroma of booze, vanilla, roasted malt, lactose, milk chocolate, nougat, graham cracker. Flavor of booze, sweet malt, roasted malt, vanilla, coffee, bitter chocolate with a dark chocolate finish. A little strong but nice combination of roasted malt with the sweet vanilla, lactose, and chocolate notes. Impressive beer. It got better as you drank (or as it warmed I suppose). Delicious!

Thanks to ibrew2or3 for this rare gem.
A: Bad ass label to start. Pours dark black with a nice tan head. Good retention with lace spotting all the way down the glass.
S: Lots of roast, almost char like. Hints of chocolate, coffee, and molasses soaked dark fruits.
T: Very similar to aroma. Very roasty, bold chocolate, and then more roast. Subtle espresso notes with hints of molasses sweetness that seems to peek in and out.
M: Rather full in body, bold, roasted flavors.
D: Not poundable, but damn drinkable.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2011 Black as night and rich as all hell. A decent head reduces to lace. Smells of roasted sweet whale blubber. Thick as molasses with a high roast and balanced sweetness. The finish lingers with flavors reminiscent of milk chocolate.
