First aromas are definitely smoked, roasted, with notes of black coffee. That’s about it. Visual is black, very opaque, with a thick and creamy brown head. Lasting is quite long but lacing disappears fast. Attack is very smoky with a certain acidity and a roast bitterness. We find mainly notes of roast, smoke, ash and coffee on a slightly sweet bottom showing molasses, honey and vanilla accents. A slightly hoppy finish is crowning all this. Pretty balanced beer through flavors. The smoke aspect is well integrated with malty and sweet taste. Not a great but good beer.

Bottled. Pours pitch black with a medium sized tan head. Leaving a good lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, smoke and licorice notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with some bitterness. Full bodied, oily text and soft CO2. A delicious smoked/ impy stout.★★★★

Pours a clear very dark brown with a nice coffee head. Aroma of malts, chocolate, dark cherry and a bit of smoke. Flavor of chocolate, dark cherry and smoke. The smoke isn’t overpowering, but it is distinctly there. Good flavor, but the carbonation causes the beer to explode a bit in the mouth making it not so smooth to drink. If you are a fan of smoked beers, this is definitely one worth trying.

Iceland, at last! Thanks for sharing, dbsdelight. Dan the man does it again. 500 ml bottle. Love the label. Pours a deep brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of chocolate first, then some smoked malts, earth, toast, and black olives. Flavor of dark fruits, roasted and smoked malts, and even some peat. The aroma worked a tad better for me. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Great smoked beer.

Smokey, licorice, molasses. The smoke is perfectly balanced with the sweetness. Hops are present in bitterness only.

Pours a kola nut black, with a two inch oat colored head of which quickly dissipates down to thick, creamy lacing. Nose starts out leathery, and chocolaty, with notes of rootbeer, licorice, and musty wood. Taste starts off smooth with caramel and Irish cream notes, then transitions into medicinal licorice, mildly sweet cocoa, with a lightly bitter, smoky finish. Body is medium to full, with a higher amount of carbonation on the tongue. In my opinion, the smoky characteristics of this beer are well moderated; many smoked beers can be overwhelming to some (I actually like extra smoky beers), but in this case the smoke doesn’t truly manifest until the finish. This beer also has the best label of any beer I’ve ever had. Bonus points for style.

Deep black pour with a brown head. Aroma is smoked malt and a little sweetness. Taste is a nice balance of smoke, roasted malt and a semi-sweet chocolate . What I like the most is that while in the aroma, the initial dominaance is the smoke, but as you drink, the other flavors are distinguishable and meld together wonderfully. Creamy mouthfeel. A very tasty beer. Nice lacing. I really enjoyed the aftertaste.
