Pitch black, small tan head. Aroma is a heavy smoky, wood. Full bodied and malty, taste of chocolate, smoked meat on the finish. Not very bitter for an imperial stout, and the mouthfeel is fantastic. If you like them dark and smokey pick this up.

Draft at Iron Horse in DC. Deep black pour with a nice, tan head. Solid chocolate aroma with roasted malt and a hint of caramel. Amazing, complex flavor with some coffee and dark chocolate. Pricey, but darn good.

12 ounce on tap at Bad Apple in Chicago. Black appearance, low amount of tan head. Aroma of peat and coffee grinds. Taste is more of the same, earthy with a thin coat of chocolate, pretty mild overall, easy to dronk for such a high abv. Much lighter bodied than I had expected. Light side of medium. Overall ok, not a volcanic explosion of flavor though, and not nearly as smokey as I had hoped. Cue downward slide flute sound.

Finally tried this and it was a treat for sure. Like a BBQ in your mouth. Dark black and oozing smoke. I’ve had other smoked beers but this stuff was great. "None smokier".

On tap at Brewdog Stockholm. A beautiful dark black pour with a luscious brown head. Peat smoke in the aroma & bacon with dark malts in the taste. Nice enough but I felt it had an odd mouthfeel...
