Bottle, thanks to Leighton. It pours near black, with a thick tan head. The nose is caramel, spice (particularly cinnamon), varnish, brown sugar and milk chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, chocolate, tobacco, caramel, toast, charred wood, tar, burnt malt and salted caramel, with a dry finish. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. Not bad.

Pours deep brown/black with a medium mocha head. Aroma of dark fruits, molasses, and caramel. Flavor has some heavy roast, dark chocolate, and winey dark fruitt. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly creamy with a roasty, dry finish. VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle/12oz - Pours a very dark black/brown in color with a small creamy tan head that produced some really nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is heavy with dark roasted malts along with a bit of both chocolate and coffee. Flavor is also quite strong with the dark malts... a bit too much of the black patent IMO... and the coffee is stronger than the aroma. Lingering bitterness that, I’m sure, is a combo of the hops and the astringency of the darkly roasted malts. Good, but not great Impy...
