COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Garún is named for the strong and brave heroine of one of Iceland’s most popular folktales "The deacon of Dark River (Myrká)." A tale of ghosts, undying love, and life triumphing over death told against the backdrop of elements essential to Iceland’s character: ice, snow, and flooding waters whirling dark and mysterious. The same elements that inspire this rich, intense, bold and swirlingly varied Icelandic stout. Garún is a dark aura of intense richness and haunting aroma with notes of chocolate, licorice and coffee. Skál!"

Very dark charcoal with a big charcoal coloured head. Aroma is raisins, charcoal, and plums. Taste is really roasted malts, some chocolate, and a lingering fruity sweetness. The booze is extremely well-hidden.

kruddov (11) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2016
Tried this one both on tap and from the bottle while I was in Iceland. Perfect balance of chocolate and coffee without being overly cloying. Alcohol comes through a little more than I like.
