Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Pours very dark. Aroma is heavily roasted and peated, liquorice, tar, burnt. Body is heavy, yet not too powerful. More sweetness than expected, yet still no sugarbomb. Flavours are sugar and tar. Medium long and sweet palate. Quite nice. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - FEB 22, 2017
Very nice looks. Burned sugar, sweet malt extract, stale coffee... Not Impressive. Sweet taste, simple, malty sharp, thin. Let’s say it’s a quad... then it’d still miss the spice. No really, very disappointing. (33cl bottle from Belgian Beer Shop Leuven) Gaelic (189) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 20, 2017
Deep dark Stout with cream head. Significant tones of roasted malts, coffee, touches of dried bread and dark chocolate. Smooth in the mouth. You won’t notice the 14%. I loved it. nathanvc (537) - Brugge, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2017
At Bruges Beer Fest 2017. Pours jet-black with a small brown head. Smells like coffee. The aroma contains coffee, roasted malts, licorice and chocolate. It tastes medium sweet and medium bitter. Soft carbonation, creamy/oily texture. The alcohol is extremely well hidden. So dangerous, but so good.

Bottle. It pours jet black with a dense beige head. The aroma is deep roasted with chocolate and ripe berry notes. A little tartness. Dry roasted flavor with ashy notes. Light chocolate and yeasty notes. I’m not too fund of Belgian styled Impy Stouts but this is ok. madmitch76 (24980) - , Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2016

Opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is airy and dry, decent fine carbonation. Fluffy dark malts, tangy. Touches of spice and spirit. A little dark chocolate. Airy semi dry finish. A bit clunky, shows it’s abv.
