Poured into a snifter.
3.5 A: Black color. Just about one finger of frothy medium brown head. Retention is a touch below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left.
4.25 S: The smoke in this is just great. It offers both the porcine meatiness and the campfire thing. Quite earthy with a big mineral component. Tangy molasses and dark fruits. Underneath is the typical chocolate, coffee, and caramel. Just a touch of char as well.
4.0 T: Much like the nose. Smoke again leads the way as described above. Strong mineral earthiness. Chocolate and caramel come to the forefront to join the molasses. On the drier side for a beer this big. Coffee and a light char aftertaste to round it out.
3.75 M: Not quite as viscous as I would have guessed. Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy and super smooth. The booze is barely detectable.
4.0 D: Good beer all around. Pick it up if you stumble upon it like I did.

Bottle; pours dark brown with a tan head; aroma is smoky with roasted malt, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla; taste has a little bit of sweetness with chocolate, roasted malt, and a little vanilla; finish roasted malt with a touch of smoky bitterness and alcohol; nicely done Iceland.

Robe brune, mousse peu abondantes. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes chocolatées, fumées, chocolatées et lactées sur un fond de raisin de Coritnthe. Bouche tout en douceur et en tension, avec une belle note fumée, peu de bulles, amertume présente en finale mais sans excès. Une bière qui évoque certains Madère. Très intéressante. A déguster au coin du feu

Pours a rich dark brown with a khaki head, quickly dissipating with little lacing. *koff* Little bits of *koff* dark chocolate in the nose and mouth, *hackhackhack* there’s also plenty of peaty *wheeeeeeze* smoke. *Gack* AdmiralVernon (1195) - SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2015

Tap. Lightly smoked which adds a nice touch. Chocolate, black licorice, and a hint of soy sauce. Quite smooth for 9.4. Rolfarild (210) - NORWAY - SEP 5, 2015
Deep brown. Sour bonfire, smoked bacon. Taste of dry wood, paint, chocolate. Aftertaste of sour vegetables. Realy exiting beer. tricksta_p (4654) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2015
On tap at Micro Bar, Reykjavik. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, lots of sweet chocolate, smoke, some liquorice. Flavour is medium sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Not the heaviest Imperial Stout, but it’s smooth and complex with a subtle but effective smokey touch.
