Tasted on draft at Skal in NYC. A stout you drink like a wine with steak. Mineral water, effervescent nose. Briny and coffee notes. Malty finish, indeed.

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

badhack (296) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
I remember lots of smoke, a bit meaty, oily and thick. Quite dark pour and a hopped finish. Not overly balanced. Roasted malt on the nose and tongue along with some cola.

A - Smokie with hints of chocolate and caramel A - Extreamly dark with thin brown head around the outside edge of the glass T - Nice sweetness, with a strong verging on overpowering alcohol after taste P - Medium body with more carbonation then I like O - Decent for sitting around on a rainy day and reading a book. Luckly I have a good book in my had and its raining outside

diabel (1605) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle This is a nice imperial stout, but not great. It has (of course) a deep black body with a creamy brown head. The aroma has notes of dark fruit, molashes and some smoke which makes it quite subtle. The flavour is moderately bitter, lightly sweet.

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2010
This stout poured a deep black colour with a beautiful, big, creamy, light brown coloured head. To the nose there are scents of plastic, smoke, leather and roasted malt. First sip was smooth but a little over-carbonated. Sharp to the tongue, flavours of medicinal gauze, smoke, very roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Finish is slightly bitter with smokey hops lingering.

presario (4594) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 29, 2010
Bottle. Black with almost no head. Light sweet smoke flavour. Sweet start then smoke middle then burnt sugar finish and finally sweet smoke aftertaste. Alcohol starts to build through each sip. Doesn’t seem to gel and come together. A number of good pieces that don’t seem to coalesce.

mcberko (5999) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours black. Chocolate, smoke, licorice and burnt roasted malt on the nose. Flavour is extremely smoky, with iodine, oak and roasted malt. Too much iodine and smoke - doesn’t seem like it’s as good as it should be, based on other ratings and descriptions. Still good though.

daje (2043) - NORWAY - MAR 24, 2011
Bottle shared with esp0r at Ölrepubliken. Massive black color, tiny nut colored head. Aroma of burned wood, bacon and coffee. Malty kind of messy taste of licorice and coffee.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2012
2012-12-23. Black body with a nice frothy brown head. 4+ Smoky aroma, lightly ashen notes. 7+ Flavour is similar, modest smoky character, dark malt flavour, mild bitterness throughout. Average plus bodied palate is nice but on the average to thin side for an imperial stout. Decent, well made but not really to my taste with the smoke character. Bottle from the LCBO, almost a year old.
