Smells very roasty and slightly sour. Bourbon barrel, molasses, chocolate, vanilla, leather, booze, everything I like in an Impy. Jet black with a thin brown head. Tastes like everything from the aroma with a long lasting roasty aftertaste. Complex with ABV well hidden. The palate was aa letdown; itís on the thin side and doesnít match the size of this beer. This was an excellent offering from a brewery I had never tried before. dogfish120love (1325) - Westfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Dark brown no lacing. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, bourbon and vanilla. Heavy alcohol sand heat on the palate JaBier (7806) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2017

This 750 ml corked and caged 13.8% ABV monster was brought to our epic beer tasting by grandson Nick Allen. It poured like used motor oil into my glass. Black and with a big brown frothy head. The nose on this is intense. It shows lots of chocolate, licorice, raisins, dates, dark ripe fruit, wood, and bourbon. Full in body the mouthfeel is thick and oily. The flavor brings every thing the aroma promised with the chocolate, licorice, raisins, dates, dark ripe fruit, wood, and bourbon all arriving but there is also vanilla, syrup, and coconut. A little warming heat shows up in the finish and there is coffee bitterness as well. This beer is fabulous with amazing complexity and depth. Thanks Nick, I guess i have to change my will

Taste is sweet, roasted bitterness, slight salty and warming.
