Growler thanks to IBrew2or3 at the tasting. Pours a almost pure black color with a medium brown head. The aroma is chocolates and light dark fruit. The flavor is nice; char, chocolates, some heat, roasted malts, nutty at times. A smooth drinking Impy for sure. It will appeal to those not looking for boozy over the top sweetness.

On tap at the brewpub in Ybor City. Coal black viscous pour with a thick, creamy off-white head that leaves several rings of thick lacing. Aroma has some faint wisps of vanilla if a bit subdued. Flavor is full bodied with some hints of vanilla, brandy and a back end of marshmallows. Very tasty. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Very enjoyable.
