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.

Subtle aroma, great taste, a little sweet, but not too sweet. Clean finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Coffee and roasted smell with a touch of sweetness. Vanilla comes to mind, though that is not accurate. Pours in the tulip a nice dark color. Not a huge fan of coffee, but the coffee notes, with the sweetness mixed in made this a pleasant drink. Definitely more of a dessert style beer, and not one I could see myself drinking more than a serving of. But, high marks for delivering exactly what they labelled it as.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Tap @ Kuhnhenn: All black with only a slight touch of dark brown at the veyr edges. Decently retaining, fine-bubbled tan foam sits on top. Aroma is very similar to the non-imperial version; roasted, rich, oily coffee beans up front. More roasty, I’d say. There’s still an underlying cream, milk, & burnt caramel sweetness, but there’s a bit more balancing bitter roast as well. Also a slight touch of booziness in the back-end. Flavor complete with fresh espresso - perhaps a "deeper" & more roasted type coffee profile than its little brother. Still a touch of some vanilla & brown sugar sweetness towards the back-end but it has a larger roast presence to battle. Slightly thicker mouth feel, I think, although it’s hard to say for sure without having them side by side. A hint of alcohol lingers with roasted, bitter coffee beans & a touch of milky cream.

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2015
On tap at the brewery. A great pure black color with a frothy dark bubbly head. A big cocoa puff aroma. A nice roasty chocolate feel. The sugary feel like cocoa puffs comes back in the flavor and feel. A little thin but nice. Good stuff.
