MiP (16113) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2014
Bottle, 10.2%. Creamed coffee aroma, hint of smoke. Black colour. Small dark brown head. The flavour starts off sweet with a fruity and sweet hop note. Turns salty and roasted with a late cream note. Late alcohol bitterness along with the bitterness of roast barley. Powerful, but fairly well-balanced. Gets rather boozy when nearing the end of the bottle.

Bottle shared by Doodler (thanks Scott) poured a translucent dark reddish brown nearly black with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, carmel, dried fruit and dark chocolate. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth. Flavors of dark chocolatye, roastiness, coffee and light dried fruit with a smooth lingering roasty finish. Solid beer, but yet another Impy Stout (yawn)?

Draft at Churchkey. Pours near black with a small beige head. Aroma of roast, coffee, dark chocolate, caramel and alcohol. Flavour is light heavy sweet and bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. A great beer but a little too fresh I think, would be great with a little age to soften the alcohol. Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2013
