jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2012
2012-12-23. Black body with a nice frothy brown head. 4+ Smoky aroma, lightly ashen notes. 7+ Flavour is similar, modest smoky character, dark malt flavour, mild bitterness throughout. Average plus bodied palate is nice but on the average to thin side for an imperial stout. Decent, well made but not really to my taste with the smoke character. Bottle from the LCBO, almost a year old.

MXD (303) - Gatineau/St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2012
From the LCBO. Pours pitch black. Forms a thick, tan head, seems think. Aroma is blown nose, but with some chocolate and smoke, as well as ash. Taste is... Well, it’s certainly smokey, but in a way that let’s the chocolate come through. Surprisingly bitter and somewhat boozy. This one might have been even better with an okay nose -- not like I can taste much now. But.... Really, terrific. Second beer from that brewery and they had it right both times.

WilleLW (178) - Lund, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Black beer with a great tan head that settled rather quickly to a thinner layer. Smell of some roasted malts and soy also some dried red fruits with some sourness. Heavy taste with vinous elements and some fruitiness. The more vinous taste takes over and the roasted/smoked malts are berely there. Overall a good imperial stout, but I would like some more of the "smokey" taste.

IWillBeLight (9) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2011 does not count
500 mL bottle. Dark black with medium browny head. Really smooth drinking stout. Definite smoke and molasses aroma. Also noticed caramel. Mild sweetness. Med body and slick. Delicious

lukin (456) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2011
bottle. Pours deep black, brown small head. Aroma is a blast of smokiness, roasted malt, smoked meat. Taste at first mirrors aroma, but then also some sweeter notes of coffee/chocolate. A big bold and interesting beer, perfect on a snowy night.

Vignale (2057) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2011
En bra imperial stout med en extra dimenion i form av rökighet. Kraftigt rostad med brända smaker av kaffe och choklad och sĺ en markant beska. Ett bra smuttaröl som jag ändĺ har svĺrt att hitta bra tillfällen att dricka.

Heavy malty and very smoked aroma. Huge, creamy, brown head. Excellent lacing. Mostly lasting longevity. Brown body. Heavy bitter and smoked flavor. Medium palate.
