Aromas of raisins, coffee, and dark chocolate. Black with ruby highlights, and mostly lasting, tan head foam. Sweet up front, with roasty bitterness. Full bodied, creamy, a perceptible sensation of strength, but not boozy, carbonation is average, and finishes very dry with lingering roasted dark chocolate flavors.
650 ml bottle. Pours black with moderate white head. Aromas of dark fruit, dark caramel, spicy chocolate. light pine, and soft roasted malts. Flavors of same with emphasis on sweet dark fruit. A soft sweet tasty stout with more emphasis on hops than many. Bordering on a Black IPA. Korcz (3389) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 17, 2017

Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, spicy hop notes, dried fruit. Metallic aftertaste. The nitro doesn’t work well for a beer this big, feels thin and flat on the palate. If this was carbed normally, I’d probably like it better. BrewTom (660) - - FEB 18, 2017
Nice brown head in pouring. Subtle coffee aroma. Smooth, creamy, chocolatey texture with spicy bitter finish. An excellent RIS.

Other than pouring completely flat, this is a fine beer. Thick but not too sweet, is has a nice sticky flavor. Good stuff.

Bottle to snifter - pours black with a small but lingering beige head. Aroma is ripened dark fruit, vanilla and cocoa, toffee... Very inviting. Silky smooth down the hatch... Most of the fruits yielded to coffee, smoke, more cocoa but that raisin edge remains. Lingering bittersweet finish with an earthy tones. Well done. john44 (3101) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle. Bought Aug 2015; BBE Feb 2016; Drank Dec 2015 - Very Dark Brown / Black in colour. Average creamy beige head. Very Malty; very roasty malts, coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, liquorice. Fruity; dark fruits, raisins, berries. Spicy notes. Hoppy; moderately hoppy; earthy hops. Smooth. Full bodied. Initially sweet roast coffee malty. Then increasingly salty and liquorice. Ending bitter dry roast almost burnt. Good. Liked this. Interesting and rather unusual Impy Stout! (2015-12-06)

Bottled, 355ml aged 8.2 years as Left Hand Imperial Stout from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Virtually black with tan head. The first impression is how sweet the beer is. sucrose, silky notes, a touch overly sweet for me. Following this there is a prune like flavour, quite rich and again sweet, damson, dark roasted malts. An enjoyable Impy Stout but just not quite there for me. DiarmaidBHK (4924) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Nooner at Taco Mac University. Pours black in nitro with a thick khaki head. Coats the glass with lacing. Lots of raisin and licorice on the nose and tongue. Hides it’s booze well. Not bad. Franckg (1660) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2017
