3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Reykjavik. Not a great stout by any means. The roasting leaved a bitter aftertaste that does not sit very well with me.

4.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Very rich, flavorful stout. Complex. Not too creamy. In my opinion, this is one of the best stouts available in Iceland.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vínbúđin; unappealing label (a skull with hat and guitars; apparently bad taste is shared with the Danish)
Black color with generous beige head. Nice aroma, breadcrust, oven baked. Lean body, but smooth mouthfeel; plenty of roasted malts with a bready chewiness; strong bitterness; in the final there is an impression of campfire and ashes.
Very good beer; I’m interested to see what becomes if brewed at slightly higher gravity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice glug glug balck pour, pretty thick looking. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee nuts and light hops. Taste, fairly carbonated, some roasted malts, thin mouth feel, light hops, fairly dry finish. Overall, a nice porter, it groundbreaking but good overall balance.

Poured deep dark brown with a dense tan head. Aroma of roast malt, muted dark fruit and chocolate. Medium to full body, flavour as the aroma, but a bit bland for the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours deep black with a lovely, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has caramel, roasted malts, bit of coffee. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel - especially for the ABV. Flavour is lovely, roasted, quite bitter, chalky (in a good way), dark chocolate, some plums. Lovely dry bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, served with the dessert course at Frederik V, Reykjavik. Dark cola brown body, thin tan cap. Sweet caramel and bitter chocolate combine to form a moderately sweet dark brew, without any real roast character. Quite full bodied though, just lacking some complexity. Nice enough.
