Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2009
(Bottle) Pours black with a brown head. The aroma is of tar and meat-like smoke up front with roasted tones of chocolate and mild caramel in the background. The nose is rather sweet in a nice way. The flavour is medium sweet and light bitter with heavily sweet finish. The smoky notes are up front in the flavour as well with meaty and tar-like tones. There are also some chocolate, sweet liquorice and sucralose. The mouthfeel is round and smooth. Tones of chocolate, smoke and syrupy sucralose lingers. Medium bodied. A soft and drinkable IMP. The only problem is the overpowering sweetness on the finish.

Bottle. [thank you mum, dad and bigbro]
Pours completely black with a great, creamy, dark-brown head. Great duration. Aroma is wonderful, lots of coffee and roasted malts. Light rubber, some smoked notes, chocolate and flowery hops. Lowish carbonation, light mouthfeel and fairly creamy. Quite sweet flavour. Primarily chocolate and smoke. Some coffee-like bitterness. Long dryness and some viniousness. Very nice Impy, though it probably is just a tad too sweet.

markas101 (1898) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2010
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.

drowland (6144) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2010
6/26/10. Sampled at the Tally Tasting 2010. Aroma is typical smoked awesomeness - bacon, meat campfire. Big sweet smoked meat flavor, and they aren’t kidding or hiding it.

Boutip (4852) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of rich black chocolate with notes of smoke and light bitter roasted malt. Taste is also a very good mix between some roasted malt with notes of rich black chocolate and some smoke though not as much as I was expecting. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed overall and quite enjoyable though more smoke would have improve the flavour profile IMHO.
