Great beer. Pours dark, with a yellowish foam. Smoky smell. Two sip beer, first sip you are overwhelmed with smoky flavor, second sip gives fruity taste. Long lasting aftertaste. As it is 9,4% I only reccomend one each time. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2012
Bottle at Monks Porter House, Stockholm. Black pour, thin foamy tan head. Aroma is smoked, roasty, burnt and with some leathery bourbon notes. Flavor is smooth caramel, very roasted ashy, some tobacco, bourbon and chocolate. And it isn’t even aged on bourbon barrels... Amazing brew, my first from Iceland, but if all of them are this good.... Wow. Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAR 19, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2012 Grabbed a bottle of this the other night... poured a dark rich burnt umber with smokey chocolate aroma and a hint of heat & coffee. The taste was much smoother than I assumed with a good hit of smoke on the first sip followed by rich herbal sweet flavors... after the initial sip it lost a lot of the smokey characteristics but picked up a lot of Rootbeer flavors coming through... I could chug this and for a smoked imperial stout that is unusual ! YUM maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - AUG 12, 2012
Pours very dark and thick with a smallish head. Super smoky in both taste and smell. Very heavy on the palate, but extremely tasty. wlajwl (6751) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Aroma is bread, fruit and smoke. The flavor is malts, smoke/BBQ, fruit, mild vinous notes and an acidic/tart finish.

Black and thick texture. The scent doesn’t have a lot of smoke in it. Not the "smokeiest" smoked beer I’ve had, but really nice flavour. Chocolate and smoked meat. Like dinner and a dessert! Fatehunter (2561) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2012
In a Delirium glass. Pitch black color with almost a finger of tan head. Looks great.
Strong chocolate smell with roasted malt in the background. Hint of burnt wood.
Silky/creamy texture. Burnt taste, roasted malt, chocolate and burnt again. Tasty.
Low carbonation and a heavier body.
Outstanding, a pleasure to have. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2012
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. Splitenz (368) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2014
A near perfect imperial stout. Bitter roasted malts meets smoke, ash, sweet chocolate and a strong alcohol finish, tickles the nose nicely. Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Pours an opaque black with a nice brown head that leaves spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of peat, smoke, campfire, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, campfire, peat, sweet dark chocolate and bitter cocoa. Nicely balanced beer with a medium high carbonation and body which the smoked malts give a bit of a misperception on how big the beer actually is. Great balance overall.
