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.

Had this on draft at The Local Option in Chicago. Started very good but got better and better as it warmed up a bit and allowed the flavors to really meld together. I do not usually enjoy smoke beers, but this one had almost a smoked meat flavor to it that left you wanting another drink and then another. One of the best beers I’ve had in recent memory!

Nice smokey flavor of roasted hops and an aftertaste of chocolate. Smooth on the palate with a refreshingly light bitter taste. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

malrubius (1713) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from Red White & Brew Chesterfield, OH. Almost black with tan ring. (No to confident about this glass) Ashy woody smoky burnt roasted earthy aroma. Smoky ashy burnt roasted coffee and caramel and chocolate minimal raisin fruity sweetness with big burnt smoky earthy woody medium bitter finish. Oily thick but not overwhelming palate. Amazing.

Black with creamy tan head. Great velvety full body with medium carbonation.

Aroma: roasted malt, smoke, and a hint of soy sauce.

Taste: carob, dark fruit, cocoa, roasted malt, toasted malts, brown bread, hints of silage, and a bit of alcohol warmth.

Black and thick texture. The scent doesn’t have a lot of smoke in it. Not the "smokeiest" smoked beer I’ve had, but really nice flavour. Chocolate and smoked meat. Like dinner and a dessert!

Fatehunter (1215) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2012
In a Delirium glass. Pitch black color with almost a finger of tan head. Looks great. Strong chocolate smell with roasted malt in the background. Hint of burnt wood. Silky/creamy texture. Burnt taste, roasted malt, chocolate and burnt again. Tasty. Low carbonation and a heavier body. Outstanding, a pleasure to have.

poisoneddwarf (1714) - 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.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2014
A near perfect imperial stout. Bitter roasted malts meets smoke, ash, sweet chocolate and a strong alcohol finish, tickles the nose nicely.
