SlackerMads (1429) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle. Black with a small diminishing light brown head. Meaty smoke in the nose. Dark chocolate, roasted malt, charcoal, late smoke notes, brown sugar, light warming finish. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium sweet and bitter. Pretty heavy, but also quite nice and the smoke works well.

baraciisch (1713) - USA - JAN 22, 2014
Deep brown to black in color with tan head... Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, smoked malts... Flavor is big on the smoked malts, dark chocolate, but smoke dominates throughout.. Really nice, especially if you are in the mood for a huge smoke bomb... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 15, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2014 Aroma of smokey, roasted coffee and molten dark chocolate. Solidly black, disturbingly still. Interesting mix of dry smoke and sweetness. Bitterness is average for an imperial stout, which is to say quite bitter. Smooth creamy body, belies the overall heaviness of this beer. You will start thinking it isn’t one and done, by the finish not so much. A wonderful example of an unusual style. Would like to say something inspirational about Iceland, but I got nothing.

DocJitsu (836) - Florida, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours a nearly fully opaque very dark brown with ruby-brown glints around the bottom edge of the glass. A big dark taupe head forms and fades nearly as quickly. Bold smoky, coffee, fruity nose. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Bitter smokiness couches sweet but slightly tart fruit in the flavors.

Tmoney99 (10450) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Poured dark brown with an average brown frothy head that was mostly lasting with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate smoke malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Complex solid beer.

Garlic_of_Doom (415) - SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle from Den Nordiske Ölhandel. Pours black with a small brown head, no retention. Aroma is smokey with coffee, chocolate, rye bread, sasuage and slight cherries. Smoke, chocolate, wood, cherries, roasted malt in taste. Smooth and oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Dry woody after taste, slight alcohol heat.
One of the best smoked stouts I’ve had!

Gription79 (2235) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Poured from a 500 ml bottle.
Aroma:peat smoke, raisin, fig, dried dark fruits
Appearance: very clear dark brown almost black, dense beige head
Taste: peat smoke, dark stone fruits, figs, slight caramel malt note in the finish, bitter chocolate throughout the taste, hints of coffee
Palate:this is fairly light on the tongue considering it is over 9%, dry finish, a touch oily as the flavor is lingering
Overall: This is a very tasty and complex imperial stout, it drinks like it has have the alcohol that it does, very out of balance with the smoke and malt characters, a very solid beer.
