COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer that won our head brewer Bryan awards back in his home brew days. With honey, molasses and freshly roasted coffee beans added to the boil this is a complex, lightly carbonated imperial stout weighing in at 9.2%. It was also a big part of brewing our light weight beer Dark Hopfler, so if this goes down well, we hope to brew them both again soon. We have also hidden some of this away in a Heaven Hill barrel and an Ardbeg barrel, so keep an eye out for them sometime too.

JorisPPattyn (9916) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2017
No head but rusty rim; undercarbonated deep black-brown beer. Sweet, wood, dark green leaves, alcohol, rainwater, liquorice and light roast, Madeira. Wry, bitter-ish wood, leafy, roast and some ashes. Faintly mineral too. Warming up, a faint sweetness creeps in, as from dried fruit: figs, prunes. Very low carbonation, slick, some alcoholwarming. Certainly not bad, if a bit "easy" for an Imperial Stout. Mouthfeel and body are lacking - but that makes it easily drinkable too. Thanks, Jezza!

Bottle 66cl, a dark beer with good brown head. Nose is a bit sharp on roasted coffee and roasted notes. Taste is quite sweet with some acrid touch. Aroma is on roasted coffee, roasted malt, licorice, burnt caramel, body is robust a dit harsh but pleasant.

jjsint (2924) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2017
Void black. Massive tan head. Aroma is very - um - un-impy-like. Smoky malt with basil and mint notes. Some caramel and (oddly) bubblegum. Sweet taste with some medicinal hop in the background. Long astringent finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Liquorice and caramel in the aftertaste. An odd duck and not the best impy. Bags of character though.

Korcz (3133) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 21, 2017
2014. Nie tak dobre jak wspominam. Dość słodkie, finisz mocno wytrawny i goryczkowy. Melasa, kawa, paloność. Ciało niezłe. Przyzwoite.

Aragh (258) - POLAND - NOV 8, 2016
Kolor hebanowy, wysoka, gęsta, jasno beżowa piana. Zapach świeżej kawy i kakao. W smaku fantastyczna harmonia gorzkiej czekolady, kawy, trufli, likeru, rodzynek, lukrecji oraz nieznacznej paloności i ziemistości. Świetnie zbalansowane i ułożone, alkohol lekko rozgrzewa przełyk. Piwo złożone, ale odkrywające wszystkie karty naraz, bez drugiego dna, czy nawet wyraźnego posmaku.

tomekk1978 (1395) - Zbki, POLAND - OCT 30, 2016
Aromat: nuty palone, czekoladowe, kawowe z dodatkiem miodu. Alkohol nieźle ukryty, choć trzeba dodać, że to piwo miało niemal 2 lata od rozlewu.

Wygląd: barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta z jasno brązową pianą. Jest ona drobno pęcherzykowa, niemal kremowa, jak na RIS-a dosyć obfita i trwała.

Smak: spora słodycz, złamana kwaskowością i dość szybko skontrowana palonością, nutami opiekanymi, gorzką czekoladą czy kawą. Alkohol obecny zwłaszcza przy pierwszych łykach. Goryczka raczej słodowa, dość wysoka, ale złagodzona słodyczą. Pełnia krągła plus, umiarkowane wysycenie i wytrawny posmak ciemnych słodw na finiszu z nutą alkoholową rozgrzewającą przełyk.

Habanero (4598) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2016
Bottled. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and licorice notes. Sweet flavor that ends up being more dry and with a hint of bitterness. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. An excellent Impy. 🌟🌟🌟🌟
