Bottle at home. I feel like this is one of the classics of the style and Id been aware of it for a long time so I was surprised and delighted to come across a bottle on a recent visit to Warsaw. Brought it home with me and enjoyed it over the cold festive period. Just as god intended. I wasnt disappointed at all by it. A heavy duty, thick Black imperial with bags of roasted character and despite all the ashen roast and boozy sweetness, goes down smooth. One to savour. I look forward to seeing it again..

Mooi zwart bier met mokkakleurige schuimkraag die snel wegebt. Aroma en smaken van koffie, chocolade, (geroosterde) mout. Lange bittere afdronk. Had misschien iets voller/romiger gemogen/verwacht maar voor de rest een prima stout.

Alluring aroma in a jet black pour. Absolutely perfect hop malt balance totally covers its substantial strength with ease. Dangerously delicious. As in seriously delicious - and dangerous from it.

the aroma is a rich fruity treacle very sweet. the beer pours into a deep dark body with a minimal chocolate cream head. flavour is like a mince pie with out the spice, rich fruits really puling this beer together.

Frothmeister (758) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2017
12 fl oz. bottle. Pours black (dark, dark burgundy around the edges when held to the light) with a foamy beige head. On the nose, molasses, prunes, a very light hint of a menthol note, with faint ash and dark rye bread notes. Taste-wise, there is a light tang up front with medium sweetness and body, molasses, dried fruits, some definite booziness, a prominent amount of British-style hopping, and espresso that heads into LOADS of dry roasty malt notes, dark roast coffee, with a bitter coffee forward finish, and a faint hit of dried cherry. This is a deceiving beast. Not terribly viscous considering the style, but HUGE flavour, and so many coffee notes that Im already looking forward to waking up tomorrow. Would buy again in a heartbeat.

Bottle. Bought Aug 2014; BBE undated; Drank July 2015 - Opaque Black in colour. Thick creamy tan head. Very Malty: roasted malts (almost burnt), dark chocolate, espresso coffee, caramel & toffee, tar, liquorice. Quite Salty. Becomes Spicy. Good balancing hops. Very Smooth and Rich. Initially sweet but becomes increasingly bitter and salty. Complex. Well balanced. Intense roast malty and dark chocolate throughout. Salty and bitter into the finish. Enjoyed this a lot. Fantastic Impy Stout! (2015-07-31)

ozzatoadisback (132) - ITALY - JAN 8, 2017
Pitch black, low mocha head, decent retention and some lacing. Aroma of roasted and slightly burnt malts, plus some background hints of dark fruits, alcohol, ashes and maybe slight coffee. Taste is medium sweet and medium to high bitter, with a dry, long, strongly bitter finish. Again, roasted and slightly burnt malts, light hints of dark fruit and coffee, a warming alcohol presence. Full body, average carbonation, decently creamy. Overall quite good, its straightforward and intense, but not much more than just that.
