2009 vintage. Black pour with dark tan head. Fruity aroma. Chocolate and fruit flavors, pomegranate and cherry. Finishes tart, but it does not linger. I dont usually like fruit in beer, but this one pulls it off.

Draft at GOBF ’08 (from notes)...Pours dark brown w/ a fizzy off white head. The nose was strong hints of cocoa, chocolate, and coffee mixed kindly with some sour yeast. The flavor was a mix of the above aromas followe by a sour tartness provided by the pomegranate juice. The palate was moderatly carbonated, dry and tart. Very intriguing beer...

Bonus bottle courtesy of weeheavysd! Pours so-brown-its-black with a minimal tan head. Aroma is dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate and berry. Flavor is very ROAST forward with a hint of pomegranate in the finish. Drinks more like a porter than the Impy its classified as. Interesting.

Pitch black with a tan head. Chocolatey aroma with some ripe fruit. Flavor follows suit with lots of chocolate and sweet/tart pomegranate and cherry. Coffee and chocolate stand out on the finish. Syrupy mouthfeel with very light carbonation. Definitely unique and worth coming back to again.

Rocket City Brew Fest 2011 - interesting beer. Not sure what it was. It was like a stout but with a strange fruit syrup-iness injected. Acidic and tart which helped to offset the sweet. Alcohol was present in the taste - a good thing in this case. Not highly carbonated.

Poured from a 12oz bottle a pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma is very pleasing of milk chocolate, raspberry truffles, and pomegrant. Flavor is amazing or rich chocolate that is complemented by the slight tartness from the pomegrant. Different from any other beer I have had....absolutely delicious!!!

pours dark dark brown almost black; head is brown with a redish ring; aromas of dark chocolate and roasted malt little cherry maybe; tastes of a dominant chocolate malt, cherry and coffee on the finish which lasts-coffee dominant in the aftermath...sweet but good

12 oz. Bottle. I was not a fan of this beer. Smelled sour upon pouring and this carried over into the flavor. It did pour a nice color, but that was the best thing about it. I will have to try it again in the future.

Wow, an interesting beer. Nice, full roasty chocolate coffee, with just a hint of fruity sourness that keeps you interested. My only quibble were that it was a bit thin on the mouth. The pomegranate was very subtle; tt easily could have been overdone. Nice beer.
