This is kind of unfair since I love smokey beers. Clean aroma with floral hops and roastiness. As with everyone else, salty licorice, dark fruits, dark malts, and a fantastic smokiness dominate the palate. Very smooth on the tongue and a somewhat slick finish that is dominated by smoke. This one just gets better and better as it warms. Superb brew!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the October 2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a medium sized foamy head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was toasty malts, anise and floral hops. The flavor was dry, bitter and roasty with notes of port wine, anise, coffee and vanilla. Long, dry , roasty anise and floral hop finish. Moderately full bodied. Solid.

Bottle. Thanks Al. Thick black car oil with no head, just some brown fuzz on top. Aroma is a dead giveaway for an imperial stout. Salty licorice, cocoa, vanilla bean. Taste starts with a hint of smoke, which grows in intensity along with surprising hoppiness in the finish. Espresso notes are always just beneath the surface. This is dry, hoppy, with roasty smoke. Quite complex, with a subtlety that is appreciated. Nice.

Chocolate, bourbon barrel, with a touch of alcohol and touch of sweetness. Afterwards, it feels like I’ve been chewing coffee beans. In a good way. If you want to kill Vampires with bourbon-barrel stakes that taste like coffee, this is your beer. Heck, if you want to drink coffee-flavored bourbon-barrel stakes, this is your beer too.

Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is of smoke, burnt wood, ashy notes, liquorice, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and some kind of grassy hoppy notes. The flavor follows the nose with a nice balance between smoke, roast and sweetness, I get some of the woody burnt nots, ash, campfire smoke, grassy hoppy nites, roasted malt, liquorice , coffee and chocolate. The body is full with a creamy mouth feel. Overall a really nice Imperial Stout, loving the smoke.

Poured this beer from a large bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. It had a thick black color with an above-average sized creamy and slightly foamy tan head that had modest retention, but excellent cling and great lacing. Its aroma had a rich malt presence with strong notes of chocolate along with tones of coffee, molasses, and caramel, along with a grainy hop undertone and notes of wood and dark fruit. The beer had a somewhat sweet taste initially with flavors of chocolate, coffee, light caramel, and a good blend of dark fruit and raisin, that gave way to a bitter grainy effect with a touch of alcohol. It was a fairly wet beer, a touch creamy, with good carbonation and fizz, It was somewhat dry with an alcohol presence at the finish and a dry, but full, mouthfeel.
