16 oz. Can

Pours a very nice dark brown color, very nice carbonation, with a HUGE three-finger thick/creamy tan head, which leaves some really nice thick/creamy sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, with some pretty nice chocolate/toffee/coffee notes, vanilla. The taste is really nice malty, nice sweetness, very nice touch of chocolate/toffee/coffee notes, vanilla. Medium body, ABV hidden very well. Overall, a very tasty brew, little bit too much coffee/java for me. More on the low side ABV for an Impy though.

Really good. Can definitely taste the coffee. Also slightly sweet, maybe syrupy & slight alcohol taste. Very dark & heavy but slightly sweet not dry. Heavy aftertaste of coffee & maybe a little drier on the finish. Heavy & good. Did I say heavy?

first review ever because I think this brewery is hella solid and deserves recognition. half a finger light brown head that goes away fast. smell is heavvvvvvvy coffee. a little chocolate. that sh*t I do like. taste is rich, dark roasted coffee with a massive body. some sweetness coming in on the end with a little roasted/smokey malts. definitely one I would want to sip on in the lodge after a long day on the mountain.

16 oz can. Pours dark brown with a medium creamy brown head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet chocolate malts and roast coffee.

The flavor is sweet chocolate malts with a lot of roast coffee (slightly acidic) and a fairly bitter roast finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, a very nice coffee stout. Reminds me of Santa Fe's but not quite as good.

Pours a thick dark black color with a somewhat thin tan head. Strong aroma of coffee but a hint of citrus in the nose as well. First hit is bitter, burnt coffee taste dominates. Very little hop presence. Finishes slightly dry and bitter.

pint can poured into a nonic glass. new pavement dark color to this, way darker than even the most gnarly coffee, with an inch of mocha colored head with reasonable retention. the nose emits strong odors of coffee, and i agree with the other reviewer that is has a day old drip sort of complexion, but i disagree in that its not nice to the beer. i think that almost stale coffee element is nice, and a cool and unconventional balancing act for the very heavy roasted barley flavors in this. acidity is low, bitterness is average, but the presence of coffee is quite strong throughout. what i like best in this beer is the richness of the feel, aided by maybe some oats in the mash, but certainly by a coffee that was likely cold pressed to reduce acid. i think it mixes in well, but it certainly does have a dryness that i could see being observed as past its prime. carbonation is nice and frothy, and the beer sort of sticks to my guts. alcohol by volume isnt listed, but i would guess somewhere around 8% abv, its definitely bigger than average. not sure i could rock a while four pack of this in one dose, i think two is quite enough for me, but i enjoy the flavors, the buzz, and the caffeine rush from it. better than expected from eddyline.

16oz can that I think I paid $3.99 for, ridiculous. Typical stout appearance with a healthy head. Aroma was coffee but not good coffee per se. It didn't smell bad it just wasn't scrumptious. Flavor was sort of ashy and bitter like old coffee. This one is a pass and I can't believe I was dumb enough to drop the $4 when I have found Eddyline beers lacking in the past.
