Dark brown, almost black with a small brown head leaving a lasting ring on the glass. Aroma is roasted with coffee, tobacco, dark chocolate, quite subtle smoked notes with smoked meat, ash and some sweet notes of toffee and vanilla. Taste is light to medium sweet, dry roasted bitterness and light smokey notes. Finish is dry roasted, more smoke coming through in the end as well as chocolate and slight hints of vanilla and notes of alcohol with a very dry lasting roasted note. Medium bodied, soft, small bubble carbonation, texture is dry. A nice subtle smokey stout with a very dry roasted feeling to it.
A very good smoked stout. Pours a deep black with a brown head. Smells of vanilla and smoked bacon. Taste is vanilla upfront, followed by lots of smokiness, bacon and sausage, and some chocolate in the finish. Had on tap at Mikkeller Bar. lux_edwards (306) - - AUG 3, 2015

Bottles in Reykjavik: Surprisingly delicious impy stout. Very earthy (even somewhat barnyardy) with rich notes of smoke, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, char and tar. Warming alcohol and a snappy hop bite round it out well. Andy_ (1110) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2015

Dark brown, almost black beer with little light brown head. Aroma has roasted malts, saltiness, caramel, dark chocolate, cola and smoke. Flavor has dark bread, roasted malts, caramel and licorice. Palate is quite full with quite strong carbonation and bitterness. Quite mild bite of bitterness with some alcohol. Aftertaste has roastiness, licorice, bitterness and smoke. Decent, kind of Black IPA style flavors. Smoke works well here, but does not overpower.
Bottle shared by Darrell.
Near black, opaque body with a thin beige head. Smoke, cooked sausage, campfires. Rauchbier character. Nearly 10% abv masked well. Easy drinking. Smooth with low to medium carbonation. Solid beer. Hooray Iceand. BlackHaddock (7410) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
8th May 2015: in a flight of six at the excellent Brewhouse, San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, A real surprise to see this and had to try it. Black body, tanned crown. Smoky and malty with a Sherry like richness tempered by a vanilla smoothness. This beer looked good and tasted even better: a real treat. Abrakarl (436) - SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2015
