tap at Dash In on March 9 - Pours black with a small tan head. The aroma is very smoky though not strong otherwise. The flavor is also very smoky and is backed by rich roast malt with chocolate accents. It’s full bodied with a smoky finish. For me imperial stoutst go much better with smoke than traditional rauchbiers.

A little bit too one dimension in both the taste and aroma. Mostly smoke in both. Would have appreciated a little more taste.

From notes: Poured deep, opaque black with a 1-finger tan head. Peppery smoke aroma, with some chocolate underneath. Full body, very slightly oily. Mild finish with a touch of astringency. Smoke flavor is strong, yet restrained. Not as in-your-face as a rauchbier. Roasty maly flavor underneath. Some chocolate as well as it warms. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Frisco Taphouse & Brewery in Columbia, MD.
Opaque, near black with a small, creamy brown head and very good lacing.
Aroma of smoke, roasted malt, and dark bread. The smoke is more like the sweet, humid smoke from a barbecue, than dry campfire smoke. Very pleasant.
Taste of caramel, toffee, dark bread, smoke, peat and roasted malt.
Full body and high/medium carbonation.
The smokiness is much softer and rounder than the ashy smoke of a raunch beer. It balances nicely against the sweet malt flavors.
