4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very dark pour and gold highlights, small head. Aromas are delectable dark malts and roast and smoke. Taste is smoke and - actually - SPICE above a velvety dark malt and fruit combo that is remarkable. Carries a late sweet finish with rising spice, almost like a big expensive Shiraz. and yes there’s chocolate, and fine coffee, goodness this beer seemed sweet at first but it utterly has me. Some lemon and acidity on the top keeps things balanced and holy wow, it’s a very well put-together beer. Wonderful feel and hellacious refined aftertaste makes me crave another pour. Covet this.

Black color, mediumsized creamy beige head. Aroma of smoke, roasted malt, dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, dried fruits, liquorice, and some hints of alcohol. Flavour of roasted malt, liquorice, dark chocolate, some smoke, toffee and dried fruits. It’s a nice residual sweetness which goes well with the warming alcohol. Fullbodied, smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation. A very nice imperial stout!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to Piscator34! Dark black pour, dark brown and quickly dissipating carbonation and a slightly mellow smoky peat aroma. Flavor was very earthy, creamy roasted dark malts, lactose, and finished with an aftertaste of semisweet chocolate chips and plenty of campfire smoke. Not a smoked beer for begginers, but unique and tasty nonetheless. Really glad I got to try this

Only drawback is that temp should’ve been 5 degrees C lower :) Nose is smoke, weak port, alcohol, coffee, feel is medium, carb is low, taste is weak wood, nuts, sweet malt, chocolate,

Sweetness and smoke, sublte and inviting. Not an extreme iperial stout, you could fool pople into thinking this was weaker. Could do with a little more edge, yet respectable.
