COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It should be indisputable evidence when a smoking gun is right in front of You. Maybe You can even smell the burning, toasty nose, see the easily recognizable head and taste the gun powdery finish. This is not the case.

From notes, consumed on 3/24/13. Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark brownish black with about a third a finger of off-white head, mostly a ring around the glass. Aromas of dark fruit, booze. Tasting notes of cola, dark fruit, subtle smoke, light hops, light herbs and spices. Alcohol is well masked in the taste. Light-ish body with a dry finish.

kramer (4684) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small fizzy light brown head that vanished pretty quickly. The nose is burnt and roasty with some light smoke, licorice, caramel, and some noticeable alcohol. The flavor is a bit acrid and burnt tasting with a heavy caramel and toasty maltiness. There’s a little smoke in here, but it’s pretty light. A little too overly alcoholic for my tastes, this could use a little more body to help round out the mouthfeel and mitigate the alcohol flavor. Medium bodied with a slight stickiness up front and a warming finish. A little too much fizzy carbonation for me as well. Meh, not up my alley as far as Impy’s go.

Vaiz (3143) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy brown pour, tan head. Aroma of brown sugar, yeasty, bread, ripe fruits and some roasted malts with licorice. Flavor is slightly bitter, but mostly sweet brown sugary malts. This is not an imperial stout, more like a quadrupel. Decent body, heavy carbonation. A bit too sweet and yeasty for me. Very Belgian. Completely missing the gunpowder or the smoke. Still a decent beer, but not as expected.

angel77 (511) - oviedo, SPAIN - JAN 2, 2014
Caña en el Lupulo. 02-01-14. Color negro intenso con espuma oscura poco persistente. Aroma a maltas tostadas y cacao. Sabor tostado chocolate y cacao con cuerpo ligero - medio que se bebe bastante bien a pesar de los 10 grados que marca. A medida que calienta aparecen algunos sabores ahumados y regalíz negro, pero no tantos como esperaba. Buena Creo recordar que la botella presentaba algo más de cuerpo junto con aromas y sabores más ahumados.

Lowenbrau (1728) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 30, 2013
On tap @Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. Pours very dark with nice creamy tan head. Some head retention, good lacing. Sweet, roasty, cacao aromas. Medium body, silky texture, soft carbonation. Taste is kind of sweet, roasty, some coffee and caramel flavours. Sweet aftertaste. Ends quite alcoholic, well integrated, not noticed till the last sips. Very enjoyable one, more like a sweet stour rather than IRS.

Mora2000 (5346) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Brown pour with a tan head. The aroma has some chocolate and toffee notes. The flavor is similar with some chocolate, toffee and light dark fruit character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle... Clear, deep, dark mahogany pour with a mid-sized, creamy, lightly-tanned head that never dissipates - at all. The aroma is a restrained assembly of dried dark fruits, medium sherry, crusted port and brown sugar. Full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and busy carbonation. The flavor is roasty, vinous and moderately bitter with a hint of acidity. Finishes like a nice, well-balanced pinot noir. Bottle courtesy of Hopsleeroy!

bottled, black to deep brown pour with no foam, has some corn nuts and light cocoa on the nose with burnt roast and coffee flavor, thin bodied finish

Roasted, coffee, slight smoke aroma. Brown-black color with minimal tan head. Thinner than I had hoped and less smoky than the name promises. Still a good dark stout.
