5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Very big thanks to Jack for this much wanted whale. Very dark brown - black beer, decent dark tan head. Nose of rich coffee and mild maple. Palate is smooth and airy but still has a little body. Very fine carbonation. Smooth and rich dark malts. Lovely dark malt cream and rich chocolate fudge. Mellow but well flavoured coffee. Touch of maple. Mild dark fruits and fruity mellow bourbon. Trace of licorice. Smooth dry finish. Yeah - worth the hype, this is a special Impy. Sumptuous and packed full of flavour but very easy to drink.
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to Jack. Pours thick black with a creamy brown head. The aroma is quite strong, with lots of charred wood up front, then secondary notes of dark chocolate and maple syrup. Big sweet flavor, oily, with bittersweet chocolate, baking cocoa, torched wood, earth, more maple syrup, figs, some coffee grounds. Full bodied, chewy, with moderate carbonation. Warm finish with loads of sticky chocolate sauce, well roasted malts, vanilla, char, maple, espresso, raisins, figs. Delicious. Robust yet still exceedingly drinkable. Exceptional.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2015 Bottle thanks to the Minhs back in November 13’. Pours a black with thick creamy tan head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a strong maple, oak, roast, coffee, and whiskey. Thick mouthfeel with an amazing maple flavor that lingers, strong coffee, light booze. Wow, lived up to the hype, sipped this for over an hour. Amazing. 3000th rating.
