hapjydeuce (1002) - Carlsbad, California, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Bottled. Pours silky black with a fine ring of beige head that dissipated over the course of drinking. Interesting aroma of roasted malts with a touch of pine sap/ resin, citrus and anise. Maybe the amarillo showing through? Flavor is straightforward dark cacao, espresso and a bitter, dry finish. One of the hoppier IS’s ive tried. Overall very tasty but lacking balance, perhaps a touch of conflict of the peppery hops they were going for with the saucy roasted malt base.

Habanero (4848) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - MAR 5, 2017
Bottled. Pours black with a small, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and woodish notes. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and slightly bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice Impy indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

rodenbach99 (4678) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
Style et résumé: Imperial stout trop poussiéreux.
Comment: Bomber de 650ml acheté à Boston.
Portrait: Une vraie bière noire, très foncée. Un superbe nez intense de chocolat, de réglisse, de mélasse avec une touche d’iode. Une bouche malheureusement trop cendrée avec de la poussière. La texture est bien ronde. Les saveurs de réglisses s’entremêlent avec le chocolat et les raisins secs. Très bonne.
Note: 7+/10

JuanCC (149) - Valencia, SPAIN - FEB 5, 2017
Sorprendentemente suave para este estilo. En nariz, notas de regaliz, de ciruela negra pasa y licor de café. En boca, la regaliz va evolucionando hacia café, y el amargor aparece dando un perfecto equilibrio dulce-amargo. Genial y absolutamente recomendable.

4.5
freekyp (2416) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 23, 2017
This killer stout from Coronado does the Imperial thing right. It’s 9% is well hidden beneath layers of chocolaty goodness. Lots of girth. A very interesting anisette note is a persistent component in the flavor. Nice light creamed coffee, mocha and minty hop nose. Pours deep dark brown with a big creamy tan head that leaves plenty of foamy lace.
