Appearance: beer is completely black even when held up to the light, has a very dark head, brown in color, head is medium size and density Aroma: coffee, deep roasted malt grain, chocolate, Taste: chocolate and coffee, perhaps I pick up some smoke, Palate: average carbonation, some creaminess, leaves a coffee aftertaste, can get notes of alcohol too Overall: strong coffee and chocolate but lacks complexity, sometimes I don’t understand how a chocolate beer gets such high scores ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks a lot Nir A. for this bottle! Black with a brown head. Great aroma with roastiness, some smoke, dark chocolate, a bit of burnt wood and a coffee note. Bittersweet flavor, somewhat smoky, roasty, with dark chocolate, a light salty hint and a more bitter, burnt and slightly ashy finish. Great thick full body. A great Imperial Stout.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a wet consistently, black color, and a very large foamy-creamy dark tan head with good retention, average cling and great lacing. Its aroma featured a smokey presence with notes of chocolate malt, light licorice, toffee and caramel, and a bit of earthy and grainy hops. The taste had a noticeably smokey component as well, with a sweet chocolate-caramel blend that fairly quickly yielded to an intense sweet and bitter mixture. It had a swet and watery consistency with average thickness and lower to average carbonation and fizz with a good soft and smooth effect. A good beer, but quite intensely smokey.

camborne (655) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Roasted malt and smoke on nose. More of the same on palate with a fair amount of peat undertones. Big and boozy with some chocolate sweetness on finish.

Bottle from Colonial Spirits. Solid dark brown with faint garnet at the edges with a long lasting somewhat small khaki head. Aroma is smokey with roast, chocolate, caramel, and brown sugar underneath. The flavor gives a solid hit of smoke up front with plenty of dark sugary sweetness to go around. Light chocolate and roast with just a hint of earthy hop flavor. Thick body with a light level of carbonation and a creamy silky smooth mouthfeel. Wow this is a really nice smoked imperial stout that I picked up on a whim. Thanks Todd.

Nice smokey flavor of roasted hops and an aftertaste of chocolate. Smooth on the palate with a refreshingly light bitter taste.

Had on tap at Max's in Baltimore. Pours dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma is smoke and roast flavor is chocolate and roast and lots of smoke. Works well. This is a nice beer. A bit sweet on the finish. Alcohol warms. Medium bodied.

Dark black, tiny brown head. Big smoke nose, roasted malts. The taste is the same, vanilla, hint of coffee, chocolate. It’s a basic imperial Stout but the smoke rounds the whole beer together nicely.
