Dashimus (227) - London, Greater London, - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle from Vinbud in Reykjavik. Pours dark brown with a thick, firm caramel tan head which fades quickly and leaves a small amount of lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate and some coffee and wood. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitterness and lively carbonation which ends in a long finish.

Bottle - had too much yeast in by far. Kind of a weird vegetal taste. Just a bad bottle perhaps given the other good reviews here?

gegwilson (2796) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2016
Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. Deep brown with a frothy cream head. Quite a fruity coffee aroma. The taste has light spice with some dark fruit and plenty of chocolate and coffee. Lingering coffee finish. Nice.

Small rim of light cream head over fully hazy brown beer. Gassy nose, manure, earthy, dark green leaves, brookwater. Cold coffee, mocha, burnt wood, bit of charcoal. Very spritzy carbonation, medium bodied. Not bad, but a tad light. Thanks to the Vermeersch bros’!
