Hoppy; Some balancing hop bitterness. Quite tarry in texture. Starts fairly sweet but ends on a burnt/roasty bitter note. Good Impy Stout! williamherbert (1546) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2014
Brown-black, not much head. Looks shiny and oily as hell. Leaves a crown of lace that looks much like the legs on a wine glass, but light brown.
Wow that aroma: burnt as hell, mocha and black coffee. There is an astringency, like a solvent or metallic quality to the aroma. The tail end is pure chocolate. It evolves beautifully just in the first five minutes.
Flavor has dates and plums, followed by the bottoms of burnt chocolate chip cookies. The dusty mocha flavor dries off the stone fruits of the start. Then they start alternating: sweet, bitter, sweet, bitter. There is actually something akin to a chile heat to it.
The feel is thick and bitter and coats the tongue like some kind of sealant.
You absolutely have to let this one warm up a bit. It burns, but it’s lovely.
