I had no expectations for this beer. Poured a nice blackish/dark brown. Initially brown head that faded and left small tracing on the edges of the sniffer glass. Smokey on the nose with a nice bit of sweetness and chocolate. Nothing too complex just subtle and pleasant. Medium to full bodied in the mouth, actually thicker than one one think. Nice bitterness to compliment the roasts sweetness. Not a overallly complex imperial stout but a pleasant surprise. Listen to Bjork and get your Iceland on.

rich dark brown, thin small-bubbled tan ring. Nose light smoke and fudge, considerable oxidation leaves little oat behind. Flavor is lightly smokey, chocolate fudge, more smoke through finish.

500 ml. Bottle. Pours a thick, lasting mocha head, with minimal lacing, over a slightly hazy, black (SRM 40) body.....nose is light smoke, coffee, chocolate...taste is light smoke, hints of coffee, chocolate, hints of bacon, light sweetness throughout....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol hidden, carbonation high. This is an interesting variation on Imperial Stout. Unfortunately, it is low in complexity, with the smoke adding some unusual tones, but not covering the simple malt back bone or minimal hopping. BJCP 7/3/14/4/7

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a very smoky chocolate and dark molasses flavor with lots of carbonation. Very tasty and the smoke is not overwhelming.

NikkTwist (1605) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 Draft at Monks. Poured nearly black with a slim dark tan head. Dark and smoky. Very well blended. Smooth. Tobacco. Rotted fruit (in a good way.) Raisins. Like a burned Barvarian Village (in a good way :p) Sweet malty flavors but a dry creamy finish. Strong, potent and worth a try.
