3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
