Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Nose-old ground coffee and raisins. Black body with a ring of bubbles. Taste-caramel, roasted marshmallow, some coffee, chocolate, red grapes. Gets a 2 on the palate for the overall thinness. Not bad, but could be much more agressive. A weak impy.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 GABF ’05. Dark brown body. Very light, bready chocolatey flavor. No detectable aroma. Imperial my ass! Bottle. Corn muffin, chocolate malt, and some stemmyness in the aroma. The flavor is a little richer with a milk chocolate component alongside coffee beans and green stemmy hops. Some roast acidity over hops in the finish.

BBB63 (6083) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2005
GABF 2005: Nearly opaque with a good lace and lace. The aroma has notes of coffee, vanilla bean, bittersweet chocolate, peppery hops, and burnt malts. The taste is quite toasted with a coffee finish, some fruity character and earthiness as well. The feel is sticky and smooth, a bit metallic aftertaste. This had a bit too much coffee (which means it had a lot) but it did work well overall.

MIBRomeo (2561) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 Black pour thick well laced tan head. Roasted malt aroma pieces of coffee & chocolate w/ hints of oatmeal and syrup. Creamy even palate. Tastes of a dry chocolate hints of oatmeal and a weak coffee with some syruppy sweetness. Decent brew. syruppy flavor is overdone.

Shag (2622) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 7, 2005
A nice beer! It poured a dark black with a tan head. The aroma was smoke and coffee with some roasted malts. This was a bit drier than other Impy stouts Ive had. The flavor is coffee all day with a hint of raisins and a hint of dark chocolate. A nice beer indeed.

Here’s the second beer that I had proof I had had and reviewed, but can’t find listed on this site. I’m not sure if I just forgot to add a few reviews or if something happened and they were lost. Anyway, black body with decent head. The aroma is full of rich coffee notes, and a touch of chocolate. The body is a bit thin for an Imperial Stout but the coffee is good. Well-balanced, but I wish the beer was a bit chunkier.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2006 Finally entering some old ratings. The date for this should really be April 05 - the last time I had it was at Classic City Brewfest. Nice sweet chocolate and coffee aroma, with a good amount of dark fruit. Flavor was big coffee and sweetly malty and creamy, with more chocolate coming through at the end. It had a roasty bite in it that was more pronounced when the beer was cold. Alcohol was pretty well hidden. Fairly well balanced for everything going on in it. Rerate - figuring in scores and notes from a blind coffee stout tasting.

SpringsLicker (3156) - Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 On tap Classic City Brewfest Opaque black color with a diminished head. Served too cold, after warming some, there was a nice coffee thing going on as expected. Good coffee roast malt palate and overall a well done Stout. Alcohol well hidden. Old score:7 4 7 3 15 Re-rate from the bottled version Thick dark tan head, same black body. Loads of coffee and chocolate in the nose along with roast malt. Big body, smooth, with a tangy roast malt finish. The coffe and chocolate follow the aroma for flavor. Sweet and tasty.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Almost identical to the Wired Straight Stout, although I find this to be a little thicker and maltier. Creamier palate as well, still with nice coffee presence. The body could be more balanced though with, perhaps, a touch less sweetness and the aroma more pronounced. Hides its alcohol well, but isn’t that strong to begin with. Still, a very nice beer from Terrapin.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Caramel/coffee/cream aroma. Taste: sticky, mellow, sweet toffee. Non-imperial. Gets kind of cloying, especially as it warms. Little hop presence.
