COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is the kind of beer that gives the word "stout" a reputation. Extra generous quantities of barley malt, followed by vigorous fermentation leaves this "imperial" heavy weight with 8% alcohol A.B.V. and a body as full as chocolate bread pudding. A complimentary and complex array of bitter notes comes form potent American hops, earthy British hops, black-roasted malts and, of course, coffee. Santa Fe Brewing Company uses only top-quality ingredients like organically grown East Timor coffee beans blended with New Guinea coffee beans, locally roasted by O’hori’s Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma can’t be beat or imitated.

Pours a dark black with clean burnt copper edges and one finger of sudsy white tan head. Nose shows an intense amount of coffee. Sweet java roast and a touch of bitter coffee acidity. Coffee dominates flavor too, doesn’t seem like the base beer really stands up to it. Acidity dries/leans the body out. That’s usually my experience with coffee, cuts body badly. Acidic with some coffee roast.

Can from Total Wine Summerlin, Las Vegas. Dark brown pour, foamy tan head. Aroma of freshly ground coffee, chocolate, caramel and slightly spicy. Flavor is bitter coffee with roasted malts and sweet sugared chocolate. Very well balanced and with a full body. Lovely brew.

Who loves coffee! You’ll get plenty of that in the aroma. The taste is like a well blend fresh brewed cup; however, it is lacking some complexity and some serious body. Overall impression is good but could’ve been great...

Can from Susan’s fine wines. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Definite coffee on the nose. Tons of roasted malt on the tongue with a fair amount of sweetness. I can’t say I’m feeling this coffee roast. Hides the alcohol well. Solid but not spectacular.

Pours jet black with a creamy, tan head and copious sticky lacing. Aroma is coffee and dark roasted malt. Taste is pleasantly bitter on a backdrop of molasses-like sweetness. Full bodied brew with a slightly astringent finish. Very nice! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Coffee!!! Holy cow. Pours a dark brown and the coffee just floods out of the can. Minimal head big mouthfeel. Lots of chocolate and coffee. Great breakfast beer.

Wow! This Impy stout was a nice surprise! Never expected this beer to taste so good. Nice coffee and chocolate flavor with a creamy mouthfeel almost like a 3 musketeer candy bar. Very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pours dark brown with a big creamy head that fades slowly and leaves some lacing. Aroma has a nice fresh coffee bean scent with some chocolate too. Taste starts with some sweet milk chocolate but then fresh coffee just takes over. Very creamy. Finish is mostly coffee with just a touch of caramel and bitterness. Medium body. Really good beer and I could definitely understand why some people absolutely love it.
