12oz poured into a tulip.

A Pitch black withtwo finger thick billowy brown head, foamy lacing all the way down.

S Very smoky almost meaty, malty, raisins, apples.

T So smokey and meaty, like im in the mountains cooking bacon from a freshly slaughtered boar over a fire, some bitter chocolate in the middle meeting with some hoppiness in the finish, espresso lingers on afterwards.

M Smooth and creamy, thick and untamed, like a big cloud of smoke.

O Great after dinner or for beakfast as the name implies. Despite how smokey it is, it's never overpowering or cloying. This was really great.

On Tap at Stone.

Aroma of licorice. Smokey flavor start to finish. Ends with and alcohol, licorice flavor. Some coffee notes but they seemed subdued to me.

There is a lot of Smokey flavor going on with this beer. It's important to know that going in. Not as much of a thick body as it looks and sounds like it'd have, making it relatively easy to drink.

smoke and coffee are the first things my nose latch onto. other imperial stout scents fight through: heat, richness

it's not an overly large beer in body, which is more than acceptable. smoke shines again, but it seems less of of an experience for the taste buds. though hop flavor is minimal, bitterness is certainly detectable. some sweet richness but there's really not much to bite into

i love me some rauch, although this interpretation wasn't wholly satisfying

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 500 mL bottle into snifter.
A: Pours a beautiful heavy, smooth black with large 2-3 inch frothy dark mocha head. Good retention. Decent lacing.
S: Toasted grains, medium roast coffee, smoke, and a slightly off bittersweetness.
T: Smoke (not the nice wood type, but more towards the cigarette type), dark dry chocolate, medium roast coffee, and a hint of sweet cream.
M: Light-medium body. Burnt smoke lingers on the palate (in a semi-unpleasant fashion). At turns sweet and bitter. A backbone of oatmeal smoothness.
D: I think they went a step too far with smoking such a dark brew. The smoke clashed with instead of complimented the darker qualities (coffee, chocolate, etc.). An interesting beer, but not the best Mikkeller out there.
