CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle shared by maniac: pours a barely transparent dark mahogany with a stringy-lacing beige head. Has a rich sweet smoky nose with some dark caramel and chocolate. Starts with good fullness and earthy dark malty sweetness with some dark fruity complexity. Finishes drier and bittersweet with good lingering smoke complexity and bitterness.

brokensail (13755) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
Pours nearly black in color with a tall tan head. It’s certainly smokey. There is quite a bit of roasted malt and a touch of salted nuts. Pretty simple and straightforward aroma. A light sweetness on the palate; some toffee and a bit of chocolate to go with lots of roasted malt and smoke. There is a slight alcohol flavor in the background.

scantron (63) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
April 6, 2012: 9.4% abv; 500mL bottle, cellared, BBD: 26/09/2014; rock glass. Aromas of dark chocolate,leather, booze and some sweet notes of dark fruit. This just makes me thirsty. Pours black. Deep tan head about 1/2". Pretty viscous looking stuff. Initial tastes of espresso, smoke and a very smokey jerky. As it warms, there is very evident dark chocolate and light fruitiness, as well as a mild herbal aftertaste. Silky and full bodied with a very light carbonation. This is some nice stuff. Overall, pretty delicious. This is my second go-around with this beer and it is still a bit too smokey for my taste. Though honestly, it’s a smoked stout. The light dark fruit tastes are great, though.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - APR 8, 2012
Pours a solid black with a coffee color head. Aroma is nice and smokey without being super BBQ. Taste is surprisingly thin. The smoke is their but to me, this is not an imperial stout by any stretch. Enjoyable but does not taste of 9.4% for sure.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 7, 2012
Bottle. Brownish black with a sudsy, fast fading tan cola-like head. Nose shows some light smoke, leather, smoked ham, roast, light cocoa. Flavor is campfire, roast, cowhide, cocoa, coffee-like bitterness. A tad boozy and sticky. Kind of teetering the line between an imperial stout and smoked beer.

BMan1113VR (7905) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours with a near black body with a fading tan head. Aromas are smokey, bacon, maple, medium sweetness, licorice, green apple (acetaldehyde), bready, cinnamon. Flavors are sweet, smokey, bitter, bacon, slightly green, light chocolate notes. Medium yeast character. Somewhat too lively carbonation for my tastes in a beer this size. Big creamy mouthfeel with a long duration.
