brokensail (13668) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 14, 2012
Pours nearly black in color with a tall tan head. It’s certainly smokey. There is quite a bit of roasted malt and a touch of salted nuts. Pretty simple and straightforward aroma. A light sweetness on the palate; some toffee and a bit of chocolate to go with lots of roasted malt and smoke. There is a slight alcohol flavor in the background.

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Very dark with a thin head. The aroma is smoky...a different type of smoke with some chocolate character as well. Rich smoke with lots of chocolate that blends well with the smoke. An intense imperial porter with a fairly rich smoke character, this is fun stuff. Iceland has come a long way from the days of Viking Lager.
