COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Usandsynlig tyktflydende, forførende mørk og smoking good. Ja en rigtig hjerteknuser. Vi anbefaler, at kun de virkelig veltrænede ølchamps tager kampen op med denne frygteligt vanedannende og overvældende gode røgstout. Pas på, mange oplever en mindre placebo-effekt ved indtagelse.
Ingredienser: vand, malt, peated malt, humle, gær.
English Language Label: Amazingly rich, seductively dark and smoking good. Yes a real heartbreaker. We recommend only the truly skillful, heavyweight beer champions to battle this awfully addictive and overpowering smoked Stout. Be careful because this is the real deal with a minor Placebo effect. Makes invalids out of supermen.

cbfobes (2304) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2014
On tap at O’Riley & Conways, pours a very dark brown, pretty much black with a tan head, the aroma was of dark fruit and chocolate with a very subtle amount of smoke, nothing over the top at all, the flavor has a sweeter front end with some smoke and meat in the finish, again though pretty subtle and doesn’t punch you in the face, not bad.

superspak (2693) - Michigan, USA - JUN 14, 2014
12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 2/5/2014. Pours pitch black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, roasted malt, wood smoke, toast, dark bread, light char, leather, herbal, and roast/smoke earthiness. Nice aromas with solid complexity and balance of dark/roast/smoked malt notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, dark bread, molasses, coffee, wood smoke, leather, herbal, and roast/smoke earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, toast, dark bread, coffee, molasses, wood smoke, herbal, and roast/smoke earthiness on the finish for a while. Good balance and complexity of dark/roasted/smoked malt flavors; with solid robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice smoked imperial stout. Good complexity and balance of dark/roasted/smoked malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. Flavors did not feel as bold as I was expecting for a 9% stout, but is a nicely enjoyable offering.

Ernest (6262) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate, roasted grain), with notes of vanilla, manure, earth, hint of smoke. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. What an odd commercial description...this is anything but rich or overpowering. The reality is it’s a fairly plain, simple, easy-going porter, despite the high ABV. And labeling this as a Smoked beer is misleading, as there is virtually no smoke at all that I can detect. Besides the obligatory chocolate/vanilla and roast odors, its only other strong feature is an earthy/manure-like quality. Overall ok, but strangely disappointing. Looks great though...lasting head and first-pour opacity.
