Marheb (1743) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
Les notes de fumées sont profondes sans ętre envahissantes. L’assaut du chocolat noir en bouche est impressionnant et s’harmonise avec délicatesse. Trčs impressionné par tout ce qu’elle m’offre en ce moment.

tgncc (2661) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Brass City Brew Fest 2012. The aroma is sweet chocolate, subtle smoke. The appearance is typical, deep black, tan head. The flavor is chocolate, smoky, sweet. The finish is roasty, pine needles, smoke. Thick in body, oily mouthfeel. Excellent. Great to see the unusual but innovative smoked impy stout.

hangunder (192) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
Mildly smoky aroma, sweet roasty malt coming through. Chocolate aroma as it warms. Beautiful appearance, completely black and viscous with a dark brown head. Great taste, heavy and sweet but not cloying, notes of smoke and chocolate. Not much if any hop bitterness. Palate is amazing, full bodied, oily, rich. Short finish. Great beer.

Bottle, LCBO. Pitch black, small bubbly tan head. Lots of smoke and some chocolate in rich pleasing aroma. Rich chocolate in taste complemented by nicely balanced smoke and a medium body. Alcohol present and complimentary. Just an incredibly well put together beer - very impressed.
