COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ode aux malts fumés. Sa spirale maltée sucrée, où s’entrecroisent caramel, tire d’érable et soupçon de mélasse, est fidèlement soutenue par l’apport de la fumée du bois d’hêtre.

Bottle. Pours a totally black color with a medium beige head. The aroma is heavy smoke and roasted malts. The flavor is like a Imperial Smoked Porter; rich smoke, roasted malts, some caramel, earthy. Lots of chocolates. Quebec has some damn nice Smoked beers.

Massive black body and dark brown head.Thick,oily body and mouthfeel. Just too much smoke to get through it, some burnt parts. Good for what it is, imperial smoke.

An initial pleasant malty taste is followed by a very smoky after taste. The high alcohol content produces a heavy but at the same time very pleasant taste. There are a lot of different styles of beer that can be smoked and this tastes a lot like a smoked stout.

DeanF (1628) - Nunavut, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Very dark red wine-black body and a modest beige-brown layer of head on top. The aroma is roasted barley and sugary stuff, lots of cloying sweetness coming through. The flavour is exactly what the label says - a huge thrust of smoked barley and a rough bitter finish. Drink this with a side of water; but otherwise I can’t complain, if smokeds are your thing this will be just fine.

341. Yep, that’s what it says. Thanks, Dany! Pours nearly black with a loose, thin dark tan head. Massive fumee nose--lots of campfire and beef jerky, rather salty and very pleasant. Creamy medium body with silky carb. Roasty, toasty, smoky, full of campfire, bacon, and beef jerky. Yummy beer.

Bouteille 341ml. De couleur brune foncée et voilée. Nez de malt fumé (fumée de bois et notes de bacon), moyen de caramel, léger de malt rôti aux notes brûlées, léger de houblon herbeux avec des notes de chocolat noir et de mélasse ainsi que des traces de café et de sirop d’érable. Ronde-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture sirupeuse aux notes crémeuses. Goût de malt fumé (fumée de bois, notes de bacon) accompagné de traces de réglisse noire et de fruits (prunes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté de caramel discret et légèrement rôti avec des notes de chocolat noir, de pain grillé et de faibles traces de sirop d’érable puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux avec un léger goût de café, des petites traces de mélasse et d’alcool doux. Post-goût long, moyennement amer de rôti (faibles notes brûlées) avec un goût fumé, moyen de houblon herbeux, léger de chocolat noir avec des notes de café et d’alcool doux ainsi que des traces fruitées (pelures de prunes).

JulienHuxley (2514) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2011
Bottle, served extra cold at Le Trèfle. Black body with very small head. Intense aroma of smoke, wood and maple. There was also some dark fruits and molasses. Palate was nice. Taste is a little too sweet (mollasses, caramel, brown sugar) with some wood and dark fruitsCarbonation was kept to a minimum, mouthfeel is powdery and you can feel the alcohol warmth in the finish. The body isn’t too thick unlike the previous Calumet. Nice beer, one of the best of Simple Malt with Golding and Imperial Stout.

Bottle via Glouglouburp, Muchas Gracias! Pours a deep mahogany, but settled in the glass several shades darker with a ring of grayish-tan head. Nose is evidentally smokey, some ash, tar, and meaty edges and a lagery tone to it. Smokiness is somewhat less evident in the flavors, but still at the forefront of the experience. carbonation is somewhat prickly. Body is a bit on the thin side so the smokey flavors don’t have a lot to hold on to...but there still nice in of themselves...just which there was a maltier, thicker background for them to cling to...and not sure if this is bottom fermented, but it comes across as such to me. Alcohol is nicely hidden though warming...decent smoked beer though.
