Smoked meat on the nose. Roasted malt. The meatiness continues heavily on the taste, while expanding into greater complexity with licorice, dark chocolate, burnt brown sugar, hint of vanilla. Wow. Pretty damn good.

Look:is oil can black with a beautiful dark reddish brown head. Smell: is bourbon ,port, plum. Taste is sweet syrupy, complex, bright dark fruit like that of a ruby port, bourbon notes, a hint of soy. Plenty of vanilla chocolate. Not a lot of smoke even though it is a smoked stout. Feel: this is rich, creamy, sticky, warming, very good carbonation. Overall: TOP 3 IMPERIAL STOUT in my opinion. This guy is complex and amazing dessert in a bottle DON'T LET SMOKE Label scare you. Paired it with some Stilton Blue Cheese amazing.

Great appearance, in line with typical stouts from this brewery. Thick and oily, like used engine oil, pitch black, with a small tan head that held as a ringlet. Aroma of dark fruits and smoke. Taste of black and red licorice, Play-Doh, caramel, minor notes of ash; the smoke in the nose was almost absent in the taste. Lacking in a good robust stout flavor, and definitely in the body, which was kind of thinned out. Sort of disappointing, but not bad.
