Bottle from Kihoskh in Copenhagen. Dark malty smell with choclate and coffee. Roasted taste with dark bitter chocolate and coffe. The level of roast is high, bordering on ink and almost sour. There is something in the taste I couldn’t put to words until I read the description, it was chili. The vanilla and cinnamon is mild though.

Bottle @ Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Pours black with a creamy beige head. Roast, tar, a hint of cinnamon and vanilla. Roasted and bitter close to burnt flavor and finish. Smooth, soft and sticky! Good stuff!

Bottle at home. It pours opaque black with a creamy beige head. Dark roasted aroma with chocolate notes along with light coffee. Light vanilla. The flavor is sweet roasted malty with chocolate notes and vanilla. Light cinnamon. Only a whiff of the chili in the finish. Not as complex as the description tells but it’s a very nice Impy Stout.

Bottle [from trade with mista] @ home. Opaque very dark brown to black color, medium sized lightly creamy brown colored head that lasts for a decent while and leaves good lacing. Aroma is malts, dark malts, dark chocolate, lightly a hint of liquor somehow. Taste malts, moderately bitter, unfortunately I only lightly dark chocolate. Doesn’t have the depth one would expect from the aroma. Nice beer though, just not top notch. badgerben (5378) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2015
Black color with a medium head. Light spiced aroma, slightly smoky. A bit of vanilla. Dry, chocolate flavor. Very mild spice, only shows up towards finish. Full body. MaBeer1972 (2207) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 7, 2015
Bottle from Julio’s. Poured into a tulip glass. A brownish-black brew with a frothy coffee colored head. Sweet malty aroma with a hint of spice. Flavor is quite chocolaty with a little heat in the middle, followed by lingering toffee notes. Interesting stuff. nickd717 (4997) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Draft at Steins. Darkest brown in color with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet and stouty, chocolatey with vanilla and a hint of spice. The flavor is rather sweet with a slight cinnamony spice note. Not many IBUs in this mother. Very smooth and slick mouthfeel with low carbonation. Good but not a standout in the style.
