Aroma of meat, bacon, ash. Taste tons of smoke, ash, sweet malt, chocolate. Nice smoke!

Strong wood notes in this beer. Spruce tasting? Decent, but not my thing.

Bottle States 10.00%. 2011 Vintage.

Pours a dark brown color with ruby highlights. The aroma has big peat smoked malt and also dark fruits. It breathes like a good whiskey. Big roasted malts in the taste, certainly some peat and earthy wood. The roasted, coal like goodness is complex and addictive. Character abounds from Hemel & Aarde, this is a Russian Imperial Stout from the Netherlands that is worthy of seeking out. Full bodied, lush, well carbonated. A pleasure and a real treat. Delicious stuff right here, I love the roasted and slightly smokey flavor.

This is a very peaty stout. Classified as a Russian Imperial, but it sure reminds me of Scotland. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Nice head and lacing; very dark. Aroma is smoky, and the peat dominates the taste.

The flavor is very strong. My 8 ounce pour (on tap) was almost more than I wanted.

Not your everyday stout, that's for sure, but it's a great change of pace.
