sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2006 Bottle, again from TheBeerCellar. Dark brown pour, with a small head. Aroma held some coffee, and a bit of a chocolaty sweetness. Flavor was much the same with the roasted malts coming through more so than they did in the flavor. Medium to heavy body. It was a solid beer, and as impy stouts go it’s probably session worthy.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 21, 2006
12 oz bottle courtesy of illinismitty...thanks! Cellar temperature in a Corsendonk Christmas Ale glass. Pours near-opaque black with a bit of momentary bubbling at the sides of the glass, with a very small dark fast-diminishing head....sweetish nose of sugared coffee, milk chocolate, licorice, seems a touch stale and dull to me at first, though some nice vanilla tones show up as it warms....much better on the tongue, full and rich, chocolaty-roasty with a melt-in-your-mouth quality, rough coffee bitterness enters rather late but keeps the palate from being sweetness-fatigued.....soft, thickly malty mouthfeel, chewy and rich without being terribly exciting....nothing earthshaking, but an above average strong stout that would probably be easy to down by the pint....no alcohol appararency.

Silphium (3176) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2006
Bottle from jimbowood. Deep opaque brown body, thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate (Hershey’s syrup), soy, coffee, heavy on the black malt. Some coffee in the body but dominated by roasted malts and the toast and dark fruit flavors imparted by the black malt. Earthy, bitter finish. This beer isn’t watery but something seems to be missing.

Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2006
Thanks to Redlight for this one. Big thick black pour. Gave up a brief coffee colored head. Creamy, oily palate. The taste isn’t as gigantic as I was thinking it might be. Like Gamorrah, it appears at first to be large enough to squash Tokyo beneath its shell, but in actuality, it is only a regular sized actor dressed up like a giant tortoise. In the case of this beer, that is definitely not a bad thing. If it were much stronger, it would be too much. I know, I know.....with imperial anythings we expect a lot more. And this beer has a lot more to give without being overly forceful in its eliciting of coffee aromatics and flavors. The bitterness of the hops is also held at bay with just the right amount to keep it interesting on the finish. Delicious. And before this, the only thing I knew about terrapins was that they lived in brackish water. See, drinking beer can be educational.

Perfect blend of flavors and scents! This beer is tha bomb! The coffee flavor is understated, yet present. The oatmeal flavor is prevalant, but good. A great combination of flavors, and a great beer!

mkobes (2141) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - MAR 17, 2006

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2006
Bottle. Thick black color with a small tan head. Not much aroma at all, maybe just some aluminum and burnt malt. By the time I get to the first sip, the head is almost all gone. Taste is full of sweet coffee though, which is appropriate for the name. I get some cocoa and mocha as well with just a bit of the hoppiness making its way through. Body is silky smooth, with along with the nice coffee flavor, is the highlight of this beer. Great, no. Big coffee impy stout that compares to the great ones, no. Very nice and drinkable, hell yes and thats all that matter to me. Cheers!

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with Jimbowood (thanks!). Poured a dark black (with brown edges) and a small sized brown head. Aromas of coffee, lactose, chocolate, and faint oat. Tastes of lactose, roast, chocolate, cofee and some dark fruits. Starts of sweet and ends lighlty bitter. Creamy body. Some lacing left on the glass.

TomDecapolis (4501) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Thanks to hopdog. Pours a dark black with an average bubbly tan head. Aroma is on the sweet side for sure. Roasted malts, coffee and some chocolate hidden under the initial sweetness. Flavor of cocoa, chocolate, lactose and coffee in the tail...some hops in there. Really nice smooth mouthfeel.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 15, 2006
Bottle: Dark inky black with brown head and light lacing. The nose is slightly vegetal with lots of cocoa and chocolate smells and some bitter coffee notes intermixed. The flavor is sweet and chewy with a good body and a very smooth and rich coffee taste. Finishes nice and pleasant. I’m all for this but the vegetalness in the nose throws it off for me.
