Opaque brown/black with a long-lasting head and light streaks of lace. Great brew for long sunless days and nights - roasted malt with a warming smoke taste that drops off little by little with each successive sip. A little dark fruit cake in the last of the palate, only to give way to a bitter burnt malt at the end. Late in the finish, alcohol provides appealing warmth.. Very smooth drinking, solid addition for anyone who likes a warming brew on a cold night.

500mL bottle. Poured clear, deep brown with a very tall, well-retained smoked beige head. The aroma picked up a lot of meaty, salty, woodsy campfire smoke over seemingly soft chocolate and burnt black patent malts.. tobacco and espresso come through if you dig deep.. the smoke was the star, but it was really good. The flavor found tart licorice, campfire smoke, and burnt dark chocolate at the core, with salty smoke, burnt malts and peppery alcohol radiating through the rest of the drink.. finished salty, smoky, warm, and dark. Heavy-bodied with higher carbonation on the palate.. nice and meaty, but the smoke made it a little too sharp at times.. overall an excellent brew!

kryon (1767) - SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2012
Pours dark with medium off white head Aromas of rauch, medwurst, Creamy and sweet palate. Not the smoky taste that apoears in aroma. Taste is a mixed feeling btw dark fruits and medwurst. Good but pls remove the rauch

500. Pours jet black with nice oily sheen and a brief surge of froth but then no head, lace, or legs. Kind of disappointing appearance actually. Campfire, bear jerky, and soy sauce on the nose. Oily medium body. Campfire, jerky, and soy sauce on the mid-palate with a long salty campfire finish. This one is definitely a shoreline bonfire beer. It tastes like it wishes it were a shoreline bonfire.

JulienHuxley (3936) - Trois-Rivičres, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Bottle thanks Fred. Pitch black pour, light tan foam. Smokey woody aroma, a few berries, light vanilla. Taste is smokey, bourbony notes a slightly sourish winey finish. Palate is rather heavy, stouty with good carbonation. Nice.

Strangebrewer (950) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
bottle. Poured almost black as old engine oil with a thinning brown mocha head. Quite a robust aroma of smoke and coffee beans. Thick oily mouthfeel .Full flavoured, roasted/burnt maly, bitter chocolate and alcohol.

500ml bottle from Spirits Cross Roads. Poured a medium density dark black body with an average sized foamy medium beidge head, if this was a bit thicker with a more solid head it would be elevated to a 5. Aroma of sweet smoke, hickor and pork, hint of metallic notes, wet malts, rust. Fuller bodied with average to slightly strong carbonation, a decent amount of harsh hoppiness on the end, a lingering sweet yet roasty finish. Flavor of smoke and dark chocolates, burnt toast, ash, dark fruits, hickory smoked pork. Solid beer overall and a nicely hidden ABV of 9.4%, bravo.

Got this one on sale! Inky black pour with more carbonation than expected, not uncommon from the Scandanavian/Icelandic stuff stouts. Two fingers of crackling dark tan head. Nose is nice, rich and chocolaty with notes of smoke well dispersed. A light caramel/treacle sweetness and notes of black cherry skins and dark fruit. Rich and full flavor, smoke is very well integrated and blends well with the Imperial Stout aspect. Definitely a balanced product, coffee roast and blackstrap molasses all play well with some bitter bakers chocolate. Me gusta. Full bodied and medium carbonation with a warm finish. Medium full bitterness.

500 ml thanks to Santa! Pours a jet black color with a small white head. A sweet nose of molasses, smoke and roast. The flavor is awesome: rich smoke and a heavy roast, very much an imperial stout more than a smoked, lingering sweet sugars and smoke. Very damn good. Very drinkable despite the hefty ABV.
