Pours an inky black. Very thick mouthfeel with aromas of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Flavors of the malts come out in the beginning with notes of espresso and chocolate. Little bit of alcohol burn at the end from the abv and barrell aging. Awesome beer from an awesome brewer.

Overall this is a decent beer. The nose is almost rubbing alcohol...blah. The taste is what redeems this Impy stout. Velvety and smooth, I'm picking up coffee, chocolate, a nuttiness and a bit of bourbon character. Very happy I got this as well as an extra to try in a year or so. This by far is the best Stone Collab this year! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KansaiBeerLvrs (4457) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2013
Shared at the Handhin Seed Event. 13% a thick viscous black pour with a tan head. A woodsy barrel aged flavor. Aroma  wise a classic barrel aged dark beer.a thick full body with fruity plum & figs notes. Very sweet but delicious. A bit boozy but not overly so.

freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Tap pours black with tan foam. Sweet roasted grain notes, sweet toffee and licorice aroma. Rich sweet taste with a thickness from the wheat and rye, dense on the palate but overall mild, not abrasive. Gets sweet after a while but retains most of its drinkability. Lower carbonation helps. A tiny bit of barrel pokes through but not enough to characterize the beer. A nice evening sipper.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle during the Paramount Cafe Beer Festival at Paramount Cafe in downtown Denver during GABF week 2013. Dark brown, nearly black, pour with a short tan head. Aroma of cocoa, vanilla, coconut, and oak. The flavor is incredible; bourbon, oak, pecan, chocolate, coffee, and booze blend together beautifully for a magnificent combination. Some alcohol warming is detected. An outstanding imperial stout!
