22oz bottle from notes. Pours a typical oily, thick black with a sustained dark khaki head. Pleasant aroma: bittersweet chocolate, s’mores, vanilla, dried wood, toasted marshmallow. Light char. Flavor is full of cocoa, vanilla, wood, light char, ash with a kiss of melted chocolate. Fairly silky and creamy texture. Low carbonation with a slightly boozy finish. A simple, but well put together BA Impy. Thanks Greg!
Draft at Thirsty Monk. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Big roasted malt on the nose and tongue. Some solid whiskey and chocolate on the nose and tongue. Hides it’s booze well. Finsihed clean. HourGlass13 (1097) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 4, 2017
Dark brown pour with a tan head. Lots of whiskey, and dark roast, chocolate aroma. Taste is bourbon, sweet chocolate and dark malt flavors. Thick syrup like feel. A little boozy, and too much bourbon for me. hman43 (1888) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - SEP 29, 2017

A stiff stout no doubt. Always been a fav since it's been out. Full bodied nut and molasses deliciousness. The perfect name for a brew.

Pours black with a brownish head that fades to a small ring within a minute or so. Moderate lacing. Nose is chocolate, roasted malt, nougat, and coffee, with smokey, woody notes, hints of vanilla, caramelized sugar, molasses, herbal hops, toffee, faint umami. Taste is predominately sweet, but there’s a lot going in here: nice leathery notes with bitter hints of tobacco and dark chocolate. Finishes rich and malty with some booziness. Excellent brew.

Bomber shared. Pours a deep brown with a small bit of head that lingers. Creamy milk chocolate, vanilla and bourbon on the nose. More of the same on the palate. Sweet but with some charred oak, and roasted cacao nib towards the back end. Finish is balanced and lingers. Decadent. MrSquash (158) - Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Aroma is of intense chocolate and moderate alcohol. Flavor is a nice smooth blend of chocolate roast and booze. Flows smooth and creamy. Finishes mostly bitter with accompanying booze. Savage_Night (438) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 3, 2016
