A huge aroma, with lots of smoke and ash. Smells like a real volcano, but with dark chocolate and black malt. The flavor is very strong. Lots of dark chocolate, smoke and licorice. Finally, a hearty, yet not intrusive alcohol warmth. I am very impressed by this beer.

Black in the glass. Muted smoky aroma and some espresso notes. Assertive bitter coffee flavor with a hint of cocoa and herbal alcohol (Jagermiester) notes. Overall a solid brew... Thanks again to BarZigKin for his uber generosity.

This was very nice. Had a decent creamy body, strong molasses taste, a subtle alcohol presence.fine brew. Draft right in Iceland :). The water the brew with makes everything taste so crisp

"Really nice on the smoke, for better AND worse. The stout is lighter for 9%+ and is totally overshadowed in this beer, but that’s ok. Smooth, easy drinking and enjoyable. Mostly smoke (campfire) and roasted grain, touches of anise and coffee. Enjoyed fo sho."

Bottle pour. Thanks Keven. Pours black. Roasted malt aroma and flavors. Super smokey. People can complain all they want about the smokey flavor, but it’s a near perfect smokey flavor. Roasted malt finish for days. Love this beer.

Good. My only complaint is that the smoke is a bit overdone. It does overpower the base beer to some extent. Knock it down by 30% and this would be perfect.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter. Aroma is a smoky malty chocolate. Appearance is a dark brown like old motor oil with a small tan head that vanishes rapidly. Taste is smoke BBQ chocolate and some booze. Smoke is well balanced. My favorite smoked porter is from Alaskan Brewing but this is right up there. Palate is very good. Overall an excellent beer worth seeking. Cheers!
