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.

Deep black pour with a brown head. Aroma is smoked malt and a little sweetness. Taste is a nice balance of smoke, roasted malt and a semi-sweet chocolate . What I like the most is that while in the aroma, the initial dominaance is the smoke, but as you drink, the other flavors are distinguishable and meld together wonderfully. Creamy mouthfeel. A very tasty beer. Nice lacing. I really enjoyed the aftertaste.

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.

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a nice old black with a resilient beige head. Smell is smoke, coffee and black chocolate. Taste is smoke, coffee, burnt caramel, roast, somewhat salty. Finish is smoke, pinetree, ash, burnt. Lots of lingering smoke. Light to medium body. Average carbonation. Style on the bottle said Smoked Imperial Stout - I felt this lacked complexity for an Imperial Srtout, but it was quite a good smoked beer.

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
