lukin (525) - 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 (2577) - 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.

cfrancis (2735) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2011
Pours black with a dark beige head. Aroma is vanilla, roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, slight smoke but its more of a by product of the roastiness. Dark chocolate finish out this good beer.

In mouth, a smooth sweet maple malt with smooth smokey notes, molasses, nice and smooth, if a bit thin, warming alcohol. Tasted Oct. 21 2011 with GRM. Merci Sylvain.

(33 cl bottle from BunkerBeer) Pours pitch black with medium toffee head and a little lace. Aroma is smokey with notes of toasted malt. Oily texture, medium carbonation, full body, toasted finish. Taste is dark malt with astringent notes. Girlfriend says: "It was a bit too vinous."

_angst_ (3649) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2012 Bottle gifted by friend and consumed on September 24. He bought it about 1,5 years ago. Date of expiration printed on bottle is 120513. Pours pitch black with a fizzy brown head. Smell is very sweet and malty with some chocolate in it. Taste mimics the sweet and malty part of the smell well. There is a distinct alcohol taste to it. Mouthfeel is intense with prominent carbonation. After a short while the sweet, boozy, taste turns into a smokey aftertaste which in turn gives way for some dark chocolate after a while, leaving you with a rather dry and oily feel in your mouth. I very much like the mix of classical imperial stout tastes with smoked malts. The double aftertastes blew me away :). A very good and exciting beer!
