Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Black color. Just about one finger of frothy medium brown head. Retention is a touch below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left. 4.25 S: The smoke in this is just great. It offers both the porcine meatiness and the campfire thing. Quite earthy with a big mineral component. Tangy molasses and dark fruits. Underneath is the typical chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Just a touch of char as well. 4.0 T: Much like the nose. Smoke again leads the way as described above. Strong mineral earthiness. Chocolate and caramel come to the forefront to join the molasses. On the drier side for a beer this big. Coffee and a light char aftertaste to round it out. 3.75 M: Not quite as viscous as I would have guessed. Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth. The booze is barely detectable. 4.0 D: Good beer all around. Pick it up if you stumble upon it like I did. ★ 960 characters DavoleBomb, Oct 15, 2014

Ysok02 (850) - MOns, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2015
Robe brune, mousse peu abondantes. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes chocolatées, fumées, chocolatées et lactées sur un fond de raisin de Coritnthe. Bouche tout en douceur et en tension, avec une belle note fumée, peu de bulles, amertume présente en finale mais sans excčs. Une bičre qui évoque certains Madčre. Trčs intéressante. A déguster au coin du feu

On tap at Micro Bar, Reykjavik. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, lots of sweet chocolate, smoke, some liquorice. Flavour is medium sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Not the heaviest Imperial Stout, but it’s smooth and complex with a subtle but effective smokey touch.

August 10, 2015. Bottle at home, courtesy of linusb, thanks!
Dark brown, almost black with a small brown head leaving a lasting ring on the glass. Aroma is roasted with coffee, tobacco, dark chocolate, quite subtle smoked notes with smoked meat, ash and some sweet notes of toffee and vanilla. Taste is light to medium sweet, dry roasted bitterness and light smokey notes. Finish is dry roasted, more smoke coming through in the end as well as chocolate and slight hints of vanilla and notes of alcohol with a very dry lasting roasted note. Medium bodied, soft, small bubble carbonation, texture is dry. A nice subtle smokey stout with a very dry roasted feeling to it.
