50 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA via Winnipeg. Dense black colour, creamy coffee foam head that dissipates quickly except at the edges. Aroma is mellow with burnt malt and a faint campfire cinder. Smoke comes through on the first sip, like a smoked gouda, with a sweetness and alcohol burn on the finish. Way to go Iceland.

Now this is a stout! Great smokey aroma with chocolate and wood. Pours black with a dense tan head. Taste is sweet and smokey with a great coffee malt throughout. This is unforgettable.

Nickls (1973) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2010
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!

Svart med rřdbrunt skum. Kaffe, mřrk sjokolade og svisker, hvor ble det av rřyklukten? Bitter smak, noe vinřs og smak av salt lakris. Kort ettersmak, lite kullsyre, salt avsluttning

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2009
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.

rocbyter (1953) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Strong robust malt that is slightly tangy. Black with a medium brown head. Very light sweet beginning with a strong malty bitter finish and a light amount of spice.

poisoneddwarf (1951) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2012
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black like oil with khaki head. Smells of roasted malt, smoked malt, and some raw cocoa; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more smoke.
