look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a dark chocolate brown with a finger of frothy mocha head.

Smell - roasted malts, cocoa, dark fruits, coffee bean, earthy hops, smokiness.

Taste - Bold bitter flavours of roasted malts, cocoa, coffee, earthy hops, oats, and slight smokiness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a pleasant lingering bitterness from the malts and cocoa.

Overall - A unique Imperial stout. The hint of smoke adds another level of complexity to the overall boldness of this brew. Worth seeking out if you are seeking an out of the norm Imperial stout.

12oz bottle poured into snifter. Pours an opaque oil black. Cream colored crown with ring of carbonation bubbles around circumference of glass. Not much lacing. Coffee in the scent, but aroma is light with a hint of smoke. Feel is not as heavy as I expected. Coffee taste is muted (like the scent) and roasted malt comes through. Just enough hop bitterness to finish each sip. Got better with each sip. (8.5)

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a pretty, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger of caramel colored head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: I’m stuffed up at the moment (I know that being in that condition is not ideal for reviewing a beer) so I’m not getting much out of the aroma, but other reviewers have noted aromas of roasted malt and chocolate, oats, some coffee, caramel, toffee, etc.

Taste: Big flavors of roasted malt up front, immediately followed by some dark chocolate, roasted coffee, brown sugar and caramel-like sweetness, some subtle licorice and hops. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smooth as hell has there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 8.8%, I’m surprised at how little alcohol is present on the palate.

Overall: This is a pretty good stout! Good, strong malty flavors, well balanced with some sweetness, dark chocolate-like bitterness and some hops. Good beer.
