From bottle Vampire Slayer 2013:
Pour - pitch black with thin tan head.
Aroma - can smell this beer from 2 feet away. Smoke, chocolate, burnt toast, booze, and brown sugar.
Taste - bitter, burnt, smoky malt with nice bitter sweetness and boozy taste.
Palate - oily, slick mouthfeel with a bittersweet finish and fizzy carbonation. Medium-full body.
Good beer. Not a huge fan, but I have one cellared for another time so we’ll see how that goes. Reminds me of Dragon’s Milk without the bourbon barrel flavor.

Black in the glass. Soapy caramel colored head. Sweet dark cocoa flavor followed by a hint of minty hops. Clean coffee and mocha aroma. Overall, a solid brew. Thanks barzigkin for sharing. Maverick34 (3283) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Bottled as vampire slayer. Dark oily pour, slow building tannish head. Chocolate and malt and smokey aroma. Similar taste, chewy and very complex with somem bitter chocolate. Real good. cyoung3293 (1) - Pittsburgh, Alabama, USA - MAR 9, 2014 does not count
Chocolate, coffee pretty good. A nice imperial Stout. Very strong and has a prominent malt flavor.

Bottle looks cool with vampire theme. Other then that just an avg imperial stout.

Pours a dark cola color with a black licorice flavor. Taste is rich in dark malt with heavy alcohol notes. A distinct smoky flavor to the beer, a little too much smoked wood flavor. Overall a decent beer for the style but not to my liking. DuffMan (10560) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle, labelled as Vampire Slayer, shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Inky pour, thick brown head, good retention. Aroma is chocolatey, with licorice and soy. Palate is much the same, but with a subtle smokey and woody character that adds to the appeal. Delicious. fishonmyplane (505) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 23, 2014
This beer is labelled as "Vampire Slayer" around these parts. The palate is rich yet smooth. The chocolate notes stood out to me more than anything else, but there is also plenty of roasted and smoked malt. Not cloying or harsh whatsoever, just a great imperial stout.

Bottle - Light peat notes, chocolate and a bit of soy. Jet black with a rich brown head. Heavy roast, dark molasses, peat, plum and balanced finish. Although not a smoked beer, you do get it in the flavor profile. These guys are awesome.
