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)?

Medium to heavy toasted chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

kermis (14716) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2013
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.
