MBrausen (69) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 31, 2012
Poured on-tap at the brewpub A. Pours a dark black, minimal head that fell to a small white ring, slight lacing. S. Semlls of rich bourbon, coco and milk chocolate. T. Tastes of chocolate, right smooth bourbon, sweet raspberries, very smooth, like it has been aged for a few years. Not hot at all. Some fruit hints. M. Medium thin body, almost no carbonation, mildly chewy and large. Wet feeling. O. A nice beer. Really thin for a BA stout, but lots of bold flavors. Interesting fruit sweetness that normally seems to disappear with BA beers. It adds a nice layer to it. Again, the thin body is the only thing to stop me from loving this beer. It hurts it a lot.

JK (5632) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 22, 2008
From Skyview’s growler. Some malt and bready, dough aroma. Aroma is on the sweet side, and not much of the common flavors like chocolate or coffee, nor the English flavors like port. Quite a bit of raw grain flavor. Medium palate.

Stine (1746) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2008
Poured from a growler; black, with a thin, burnt yellow skin. Tangy pit fruits, biscuits, caramel and melted brown sugar in the aroma. Fairly burly flavor of caramel, chocolate and dark toffee; bright rock candy sugars and light tones of berry create a counterpoint of heavy and feathery sweetness. Bitterness is present only in roasted coffee and tannic form; hops are absent. Palate is medium to full and somewhat creamy, though very sugary and a bit sharp in that regard. Some acidic cola and astringent roast in the long, dry and dusty finish. Interesting and unique, but not very rewarding. Thanks for sharing, Bob!

Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 28, 2008
On draught at the brewery/brewpub in downtown Superior, Wisconsin. Pours an opaque dark brown brew with a creamy off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film and thin off-white ring. Aroma of roasted dark black malt, some coffee and chocolate character with some roasted nuts molasses and a touch of red grapes. Taste is medium bodied, light character, with some light carbonation along with light flavors of roasted malt, molasses and a touch of oatmeal. Finish is slightly metallic, mild bitterness with an aftertaste if toasted dark malt and some dried sunflower seeds.

badgerben (4826) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Growler. Black color with a thin head. Aroma of slightly sour coffee. The taste still has that sour note permeating the whole beer. More coffee and some burnt roasts. Overall, a watery finish, but not so bad that it kills the flavor. It’s kind of nice to have an Impy that you could concievably drink two or three of.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Deep brown black pour, with ruby brown glimt. Topped with thin white light tan head. Aroma is a mix of sweet caramel and toasted nuts. Flavors are heavily dominated by caramel and light hops. Finish is sugary and oily. Seemed a little watery and thin for the style.

Dark Brown Coloring with Sandy Ring. Light Subtle Malty Aroma. Toasted Malt, Coffee Roasts, Rich Smooth Malt. Toasted Sweet Ending. Warming Emerges Half Way into the Glass. Grapey Tang on the End with Light Hoppy Notes. Very Nice.
