whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
bottle. Pours dark brown with a large brown head. good, moderately lasting lacing. Aroma roasted malt, I’m going to say that I could detect smoke but if it was not for the description on the bottle I would not have noticed...Taste is sweet--very sweet-- with moderate bitterness (for the style). Overall I was a bit underwhelmed by this beer. The smoke was disappointing. I was looking forward to a peat-smoke aroma but it was nearly undetectable. The flavours were average for an imperial stout and it had a bit too much sweetness which on its own is not a problem except it was not that well integrated. A few tweaks and this would be a fantastic beer.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - JAN 27, 2012
Blackish with a medium dense Brown head. Great peatet smoke aroma, sweet malty chocolate notes. Flavor is quite intense, dry ashe bacon smoky, bitter alchohol, salty olives, lots of olives also in the finish

jolo (922) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 22, 2012
On tap. A clear dark brown colour with a medium high, good lacing, light brown head. An aroma of roasted malt and smoke. The taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter. A medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation and a medium long duration.

jercraigs (8289) - 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 (304) - 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 (206) - 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

lukin (510) - 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.
