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.

nearbeer (5292) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2017
750 ml. no bottling date. Ebony with an inch of sponge on a hard pour, settling to a thin creamy film. Aroma is smoke, toffee, cherry, soy and coffee. Tastes of sourish cherry/berry mix and caramel are quickly overtaken by some smoky/charred wood. Finish has soy, smoked beef, sour cream and molasses. Medium-heavy body has smooth medium carbonation and a nice balance.

JPDIPSO (6171) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Near black and looking opaque. Smaller dense tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and dark chocolate. Just a hint of toasted oak. Feel is rich, nearly a touch too heavy. Flavors start sweet and generally stay sweet. Dark fruit, mild herbal hops, and cocoa. A bit of alcohol spice. Roasted malt and ever so gentle toasted/smoky oak. A beer by the fire pit on the ski slope type brew.

Ďakujem Zuzka :) Pours in black oily body with medium brown head with short retention. Aroma has roasty profile upfirst and is followed by coffee, grainy sweetness, toasty, background chocolate. Taste has medium earthy bitterness with smokey sweetness with alcohol warmness in the after taste. Body is slick, full, oily texture, noticiable alcohol.

AleRider78 (1000) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Pours a large amount of foamy brownish head and has a pitch black appearance. Head leaves a very thin blanket over top. Good lacing. Aromas are of average intensity. Mostly roasted grainy malts, smokey, light coffee, resin hops. Can sort of feel the alcohol in this one, not too strong a taste but still apparent. Has a wood burnt smokey flavour with dark roasted malts, somewhat spicy, earthy hops. Yeasty as well, maybe even a tiny bit of brown sugar. Strong bitterness on the palate. Leaves a puckering warming sensation. medium carbonation, slightly excessive. Full bodied mouthfeel. Not too bad, could not drink more than this bottle though.

suurjuust (3504) - ESTONIA - NOV 27, 2016
330ml bottle. Black beer, small beige head. Nose is smoke, tar, roast, chocolate, burned notes, malt. Flavor is sweet, burned and roasty, dark chocolate. Finishes with tar, coffee, smoke, roasty acidity, . Tarry retronasals and lingerin warm alcohol. Lighter palate than I’d expect from a smoked istout. More burned than smokey, but pretty nice nonetheless.

Kauge (1900) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle. BB 05.06.2019. Pours really dark brown with big-bubbled (not too attractive) beige head. Lovely aroma: smoky, thick and sweet, autumn apples, Tastes sweet and malty, roast and overripe autumn apple sweet sourness. Velvety smooth on the palate. Carbonation near minimum. So easy-drinking despite the somewhat harsh finish which goes well with the overall character. Correction: as it warms, the harsher it gets! And alcoholic. And that’s not pleasant. A (relatively) quick drinking Imperial Stout that is. Good, still good.

Black colour, small head. Aroma of roasted malted, smoke, chocolate, coffee, biscuit, vanilla, hops. Sweet bitter taste with medium hoppy bitterness in finish and aftertaste. Medium body and average carbonation. Nice smoked stout.
