Oakes (15820) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Very dark with a thin head. The aroma is smoky...a different type of smoke with some chocolate character as well. Rich smoke with lots of chocolate that blends well with the smoke. An intense imperial porter with a fairly rich smoke character, this is fun stuff. Iceland has come a long way from the days of Viking Lager.

Dedollewaitor (15684) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2011
33Cl. Bottle @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Ohh.. Have had my eyes on this since the first ratings ticked in years back. Pours black with a small creamy beige head. Sweet and hard roasted malts with a touch of smoke, vanilla and chocolate. Smooth and full bodied. Dry roasted end. Very nice.

MiP (15328) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle, 9.4%. The aroma starts out citric but turns saltily smoked. Clear dark brown colour, deep chestnut. OK brown head. The flavour is nicely smoked, a ham/bacon type of smoke, pleasantly woody. Roasted and sweetish malt base with a boozy finish, alcohol bitterness.

mcberko (14999) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours black. Chocolate, smoke, licorice and burnt roasted malt on the nose. Flavour is extremely smoky, with iodine, oak and roasted malt. Too much iodine and smoke - doesn’t seem like it’s as good as it should be, based on other ratings and descriptions. Still good though.

FatPhil (14497) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2016
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Black, tight tan head. First hit is a stabley leathery sweaty salty smokiness. Behind that, there’s a sweet roast, some burntness, but not harsh. Full sweet palate, a little slick, pleasant carbonation. Taste is a slightl less smoky version of the aroma, the sugar’s taken up the reins as the dominant thrust. There is some alcohol there too. But it’s an OK rich roast. Finish pleasantly bitter with old dry hops, and a touch burnt. OK, but not wowing me.

Benzai (14460) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2011
Completely opaque black with a small brown head. Smell smoke, coffee, dark malts, chocolate, roasty. Taste soft, coffee, roasty, burned malts. Very much smokey aftertaste. Very good balance, alcohol well hidden. Full body with soft but good carbonation. Suits the beer, good stuff!

Bottle from Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa, CA. Pours black with a decent tan head. Aroma is smoke. Not bacon. Just aroma of wood smoke. Med body. Flavor begins sort of cola, then it’s pleasant wood smoke. Very mellow smokey finish.
