3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 Draft at Monks. Poured nearly black with a slim dark tan head. Dark and smoky. Very well blended. Smooth. Tobacco. Rotted fruit (in a good way.) Raisins. Like a burned Barvarian Village (in a good way :p) Sweet malty flavors but a dry creamy finish. Strong, potent and worth a try.

Bottle. Big thanks to skinnyviking! Richly dark tan head that doesn’t last long, and nearly black hue with brown edging. Very roasty aroma with chocolate and smoked peat. Flavor has very dark bittersweet chocolate, light earth and peat. Less smokey in the flavor, but really nice. Medium body and finishes roasted and dry. Nice brew!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle, bought at Iceland by Hanne, shared with Roger. Black color, fine but disappering tan head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is the same, but also lots of sugary sweetness. The smoked malt is hard to find. Bitterdry finish and extremely dry mouthfeel. Fine, but not outstanding imperial stout.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
16.9 oz bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium tan head with good retention. Aroma initially consists of dough and Whoppers before the smokiness comes through. Taste is smoky and chocolatey and ends on a bitter note. Mouthfeel is oily and the carbonation is medium to soft. Nice one.

Like drinking a kielbasa, one of the better smoked stouts out there. A nice smoke balance.
