COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Bottle from Vinbud at Borganes, Iceland. Pours black with a very small dark tan head which fades to nothing. Aroma is roasted malt, strong smoke, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol and spice. Taste is peppery with a moderate sweetness, but not overpowering. Body is medium with some bitterness but not much. Alcohol warmth finishes. Really quite good.

My Bottom Line:
This Smoked Imperial Stout generates grapes, peppery spiciness, banana purée and peat for a most elegant sipper licked by alcohol warmth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the darkness.
-Roastiness is light compared to the style average.
-The mouthfeel is cushy and not too heavy. This is a well leveled dessert.
-Sweetness is important, but not overdone in any way.
-Smoke appears as wooden and spicy in the nose, but then peaty in the finish.

Bottle.

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.

Flaska frĺn Systembolaget. Svart vätska med massivt mörkt skum. Doft av bränt kaffe och charkuterier. Sträv smak där rök och tjära infinner sig. Lĺng eftersmak.

Draught. Blackish brown with brownish foamy small head, high spirit aroma reminding of rum, very nice bitter chocolate taste, long finish. Very very nice!

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