Smells like java. Good sense of Indonesia here though it doesn’t quite remind me of Bintang. Bitter, good consistency. some lacing. This undetailed rating another victim of a late night drinking session. Tap at Hopcat.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2014 Definitely a sipper. Heavy malt flavors. Lots of chocolate, toffee, burnt sugars, caramel and dark fruits.

Tap at Hopcat in tulip. Black with a small tan head. Nose is pure creme brulee, very rich, some chocolate and burnt cream. Medium body and very creamy, mixed with a not over the top but intense burnt chocolate flavor. Very good.

At the brewery, black pour, not much head. Aroma of java coffee..taste has some vanilla with the coffee and a little alcohol bite. Tasty.

Poured black. Strong smell of Bourbon with hints of chocolate and cherry. The alcohol burns through at the end. It has a somewhat creamy texture, but also a bit like syrup.

Subtle aroma, great taste, a little sweet, but not too sweet. Clean finish.

Tap @ Barcade for Kuhnhenn event w James and Andy. Dark red-brown pour, murky. Aroma is heavy heavy coffee and flavor is underwhelmingly so. Notes of coffee but heavy booze and heavy tobacco/ash. Smells like a creme brulee dessert but disappointed thereafter.

Draft. Aroma has notes of bitter espresso, vanilla, custard and brown sugar. Black hue with an average light tan head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is very sweet and bittler. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft. Overall a lovely brew that’s much better than the non-Impy version.

Growler courtesy of GatorGuy92. Cheers, Matt! Pours a dark brown with a tiny tan head. Nose is roasted malt, coffee, some dark fruit, some lactose, and cafe con leche. Flavor is similar with coffee, roast, dark fruit, and some lactose. Medium in body and lingering coffee and dark fruit in the finish.

Pours black with a light tab head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts. Almost smells like ice cream. Flavor is very little coffee. It’s pretty sweet and light for a stout. Pretty odd beer. Not sure what to think about this one
