The 500 ml bottle came from Paul’s Grocery in McCall, ID from the discount bin.where I paid $6.,98. Poured jet black with a huge foamy tan head. Thick lacing. Nose of roasted malts with a big dose of smoke.
full body. Very creamy mouthfeel.. Flavor is rich with lots of smoky matls and some chocolate. Light bitterness in the finish. Really good smoked beer

Bouteille 500 ml. 9.4%. Couleur noire opaque, mousse brune. Arôme de chocolat, café noir et fumée du grill. En bouche, sirupeuse, douce, équilibre incroyable entre le malt grillé, café, alcool, fumée et notes de choco. Finale avec une légčre amertume, pain grillé, café..un peu de bois vanillé. Excellent équilibre.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a nice old black with a resilient beige head. Smell is smoke, coffee and black chocolate. Taste is smoke, coffee, burnt caramel, roast, somewhat salty. Finish is smoke, pinetree, ash, burnt. Lots of lingering smoke. Light to medium body. Average carbonation. Style on the bottle said Smoked Imperial Stout - I felt this lacked complexity for an Imperial Srtout, but it was quite a good smoked beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
16.9 oz bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium tan head with good retention. Aroma initially consists of dough and Whoppers before the smokiness comes through. Taste is smoky and chocolatey and ends on a bitter note. Mouthfeel is oily and the carbonation is medium to soft. Nice one.

(From a non smoke lover) This is a great stout in many ways, but the lingering smoke aftertaste just turns me off. I wouldn’t have rated it but i wanted the Iceland check.

Bottle pour in Iceland. Maybe this beer is just not my style, but I thought it was horrendous. Smoky flavor tastes artificial and its nearly syrupy. I will never touch this beer again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I drank this a few times last year. I like it a lot but I can’t rave about it. This year I picked it up again and I must say it’s an odd bird, and of course that’s a good thing. There’s a bit of chocolate in the aroma but most roasted coffee and a lot of smoke. Palate is good but I think it could work better with less carbonation. Taste is very nice though, but not a standout for me. A bit boring but also nice in that way, if this we’re to be my favourite style or something, it exudes a classic quality. Very dry and subtle, with an understated sweetness and very bitter smoky lengthy finish. A nice beer to savour if in the mood, but by no means a thirst quencher.

Svart med fast brunt skum. Doft: Trä, rök, lakrits, kakao, örter, vanilj. Smak: Must, kakao, rökt kött, lakrits, frukt, kaffe, mineraler. Lagrad lite mer än ett ĺr och bla märkt att alkohol smaken och sötman minskat markant, vilket är bra.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. I love this pour ... that kind where the head rises to the top via a beautiful cascade of carbonation that makes you think of the beginning of the Matrix. It settles into a deep-black beer with a thick, pock-marked tan head. The nose is of gritty, dirty ashtray smokiness. This drinks with a definite smoked character, but is mingled with a surprisingly sweet stout underneath. Where are my cigars? (#4864, 12/20/2012)
