Pours inky black with a very small dark brown head.aroma is quite hoppy with lots of anise, not much else. Flavor is bitter coffee and anise, kinda boring, not as complex as id like my impy stouts to be. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy. Its worth trying but its nothing special at all. thomas15 (689) - Alabama, USA - APR 11, 2012
Very well hidden booze, nice creamy mouthfeel. Slight roast and hints of sweetness. Would have never guessed its 11%. daniele (9063) - ITALY - APR 9, 2012

Bottle at the Fiddler. Black pour with creamy beige head. Aroma of coffee, fruit and some alcohol. Roasted malts and chocolate in the flavor. Good, but not as great as some of the barrel aged versions. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. A more or less black one, with a finger-thick dark beige to brown head on top. Very hoppy nose, with pine cones, citrus peel and resin, and sufficien amounts of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Quite bitter flavor, with citrus peel, pine cones and resin, and roasted malts, coffee and chocolate from the malts. Lasting bitterness in the end. Full-bodied, quite dry and with a touch of warmth. A quite wonderful one, certainly one I’d like to repeat. 110916

Bottle. Pours black with a small beige head. Sweet aroma of hard roasted malts, dried fruits, bread and a touch of chocolate. Hard roasted malt flavor with dried fruits and licorice. Maybe a touch of chocolate. More coffee like flavors come out as it warms. Somewhat bitter finish with a hint of alcohol.

3/31/12. Bottle shared at colemanzuber’s Stoutfest 2012! Tasted side by side with the Jack Daniels barrel version. Black pour with a small ring of brown head that fades. Bold aroma with huge roast, alcohol, and touches of... nail polish? Bold, rich, bitter, roasted, dry flavor with touches of coffee and chocolate followed by hints of sweetness and sourness. Interesting. GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
355mL from De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Pours near black with a thicker, mocha head. Nice formation and retention. Webby lace. Body odor nose. Taste is sweet licorice with full on bitter chocolate. Quite nice. Really odd aroma unfortunately. claudepaulis (50) - , BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2012
I didn’t like it... I couldn’t get the pleasure in this beer... They should work to get to the level of De Molen. Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 16, 2012
(Bottle) Pours near black with a light brown head. The aroma holds alcohol, dark grainy bread and light syrupy chocolate up front with light burned and fruity undertones. Hints of brown sugar, yeast and hops. The flavour is medium sweet, near medium bitter and tiny acidic with notes of tart roast/chocolate/coffee, alcohol, earthy hops and light fruits. The mouthfeel round, bait sticky and tart with a light carbonation. Alcohol bitter and light numbing finish. Medium to full bodied.
