bunget (816) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2012
500ml bottle. Pitch black smoked imperial stout, pours slowly, with an oily feeling. Head is medium for a stout, with decent retention, and it’s a very nice chocolate brown color. A dessert aroma: chocolate, coffee, smoke, prunes, a touch of hops, quite medicinal. Taste is aggressive, roasted malt, coffee, wood charcoal, smoke, brown sugar and a strong hop aftertaste. Great representative of its class.

Sask89 (508) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 29, 2012
Pours pitch black with a creamy mocha head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of chocolate and toasted grains with a slight smokey undertone. Taste is rich and sweet with a little dryness throughout and some smokiness in the finish, but not really overpowering. Creamy on the palate, full bodied and soft carbonation. Overall an excellent beer and pretty good imperial stout.

jkwood04 (5260) - Connecticut, USA - APR 27, 2012
500ml bottle in a wine glass. Pours black with a light tan head. Aroma of a little roasted malts and smokiness, but mainly like cola and chocolate. Flavor stronger on the malts and smokiness. Smooth, slightly oily texture. A pretty good beer.

PorterPounder (7223) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2012
Tallahassee, FL - New Leaf Market - 500 ml bottle. Dark black as tar pour with a ring of light brown lacing. Nice smoky aroma with hints of pipe tobacco and licorice. Flavor matches the intensity of the aroma. Roasty, smoky flavor, not meaty smoky, but can still feel the presence of the smoke. Some chewing tobacco notes, a bit of saltiness, some black coffee notes. Rich, creamy mourthfeel. Good one to keep warm by the fire in Iceland I’m sure.

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2012
UPDATED: APR 5, 2015 Pours deep brown/black. Little tan head, dissipating to a mm oil slick. Nose of Leather, rum, chocolate, figs, and cherry skins. Nice mouthfeel, needs some aging to bring down some carbonation. Dry and salty. With a similar finish. I really don’t get a whole lot of smoke off of this. Some sours fruit, a bit of cocoa and yeast flavours. It’s reasonably constructed but I don’t get a whole lot of depth. Certainly no sweetness. It’s obvious that I liked it, but it’s an imperial stout and I’ve tried others which didn’t mention smoke; and were smokier. Re-rate 4 year old bottle. Carbonation settled a bit. Still very spritzy. Smoke has opened up. More into an even overall roasty quality. Loads more coffee flavour. A general mild burnt note with hop tart. I had originally coveted this bottle. The experiment was hit and miss. Still it’s a very good bottle of beer. 7/4/7.5/4/15

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.
