Bottle and served in my Bells Expedition snifter: Pours basically opaque with a small fading forthy beige head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of toast, roast, char, chocolate, walnuts, prune, pipe tobacco, tar, light piney hops and some earthy dusty yeast esters. The taste is bready and roasted malts with a chocolate shake and sweet tobacco character followed by some light coffee and hop bitterness. Quite balanced and hides the booze well. The mouth feel is smooth and slightly sticky but is a tad thinner than expected. Overall I good offering that I would likely drink again.
Pours pitch black, medium tan head, excellent lacing. Aroma is toasted malts, smoke and chocolate. Taste gets the same idea, with the dark malts, chocolate, vanilla, prunes, notes of coffee. Moderate bitter, full body, slick feel, sticky, soft carbonation, long finish. Perfect example of a typical Russian ImpS, perfect taste and mouthfeel, great sipper! itakeyourdrugs (3) - - JUN 19, 2017 does not count
No desire to write a review. This app now requires it. It didn't used to. I use this app for my benefit, not yours.

Smells like your fave choc ice cream from that dodgy bloke who had those puppies - never tell dad remember!
Tastes like dark chocolate with roasted coffee beans crushed in your partners hands as she contemplates why she's still with you.
Looks like that time you drank too much Guinness, around the toilet bowl.
This is a SUPERIOR IMPS so get it in ya! Don't worry what other people say - "ooh, I get Wild West cowboy leather" - TRY IT YOURSELF!

Pours an intensely black color with dark tan head that coats the glass and lingers. Big roasty chocolatey aroma. Super thick intensely chocolatey roasty, almost smokey...just rich and lingering. Small pour are perfect, a nice winter sipper.

Pours black as liquid coal. Foamy cappuccino head, moderate lacing. Nose is rich, decadent roasted malts with notes of nougat, coffee, chocolate, nuts, hints of dried fruits. Taste is thick, rich malty sweetness. Kind of a dessert drink, but there are great bitter undertones that bring to mind dark chocolate. Full-bodied, delicious brew. Love it.

Zwart met mooie fijne volle licht bruine kraag. Aroma van vrij veel laurier, koffie, geroosterd, gebrand, chocolade, hop. Smaken zijn zacht/glad, toch ook wat dun qua mondgevoel, veel droge chocolade, poederachtig droog, scherp, alcoholisch, donkere choco, redelijke laurier, redelijk moutig, vanille, redelijke body, persoonlijk vind ik het lauriergehalte wat te hoog, het gaat wat naar een bipa, en teveel is bijna nooit goed, nou dat gaat in dit geval op! nearbeer (5369) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2017
500 ml. 10.0% appears to have been bottled in 2016. Jet pour has a spongy disc of foam. Aroma is bread, cocoa, blackstrap molasses, mineral water and a touch of blackberry. Flavors of dark toasted bread, soy, blackstrap, ash, berry, mild cherry and caramel. Medium-heavy body has smooth low-medium fizz and a decent balance. gopherfan99 (1776) - Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2017

Muy torrefactas y compleja. Cacao, chocolate negro, café, maltas tostadas en equilibrio con notas a frutas dulces, otras terrosas y ahumadas. Buen cuerpo, sedoso y rotundo. De final seco y sabroso, pelín licoroso
