Cooperii (61) - California, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle poured black with a dark tan head and minimal head with fair lacing. Aromas of smoked malts, subtle coffee and chocolate notes with a hint of hops. Flavors of smoke and pete, subtle citrus notes, with coffee and chocolates. The Finish - smoke throughout, Bitter sweet chocolate and coffee, there is a peated presence reminiscent to a scotch whisky, very different expression quite nice...really!

gegwilson (2737) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2016
Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. Pours pitch black with a thin beige head. Nice peat and bacon smoke aroma. The taste has moderate spice with plenty of earthy peat and smoke. Some bacon too and a hint of coffee. Rich and tasty.

This is an insanely smokey beer, far more than I can tolerate. I like Alaskan Smoked, I’m a fan of most smoked beers, but this is far too aggressive. Tried with Jess at Max and Joes in Omaha’s beer week.

Bill Becker (714) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Pours a pitch black with an inch of tannish foam. Smells smokey as hell with side notes of bitter chocolate and coffee. Smokey, lots of roasted malt, bitter (dark) chocolate, toffee, not much of a coffee flavour. Pretty boozy. Full bodied imho but superbly smooth on my palate. Like a bumped up Alaskan Smoked Porter. I suppose that explains my love for it.

ston3s42 (160) - - MAR 4, 2016
Completely black with no head. Complex tastes smoke, chocolate, coffee, chili and oak. Heavy-medium body, smooth carbonation, and a finish of smoky chocolate. Not too much smoke, but tastes like it has been aged

vami (377) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, soy sauce and smoke - a bit of burnt plastic? Smooth and roasted mouth with a slight alcoholic burn. Smoked notes are there but not overwhelming. Not too full-bodied for an imperial stout. Coffee overtones.

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2016
Poured into a snifter. 3.5 A: Black color. Just about one finger of frothy medium brown head. Retention is a touch below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left. 4.25 S: The smoke in this is just great. It offers both the porcine meatiness and the campfire thing. Quite earthy with a big mineral component. Tangy molasses and dark fruits. Underneath is the typical chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Just a touch of char as well. 4.0 T: Much like the nose. Smoke again leads the way as described above. Strong mineral earthiness. Chocolate and caramel come to the forefront to join the molasses. On the drier side for a beer this big. Coffee and a light char aftertaste to round it out. 3.75 M: Not quite as viscous as I would have guessed. Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth. The booze is barely detectable. 4.0 D: Good beer all around. Pick it up if you stumble upon it like I did. ★ 960 characters DavoleBomb, Oct 15, 2014
