Tunnu■roska­ur Surtur er einstakur Ý r÷­ Ýslenskra bjˇra; dimmleitur Imperial Stout sem hefur veri­ aga­ur Ý fr÷nskum eikartunnum.

Surtur er fyrsti Ýslenski bjˇrinn sem fŠr ■essa konunglegu me­fer­. ═ tunnunum hefur ˇlgandi krafturinn nß­ hinu fullkomna g÷fuga jafnvŠgi vi­ einstaklega flˇki­ eikarlagt konÝaks- og kakˇbrag­i­, me­ angan af vanillu og kˇkos.

Tunnu■roska­ur Surtur tekur ■Úr fagnandi ß ■orranum ľ en eldist lÝka eins og fÝnasta konÝak!

Pours pitch black and looks silky smooth in the glass. Small - almost non-existent tanĺish head. The aroma is roasted malts, vanilla, and cognac. The taste is again vanilla, a bit of coffe, dark chocolate and maybe even a hint of smoke. Has great amounts of lovely cognac barrel character. Definitely the best icelandic beer and maybe even one of my favourite beers ever.

Bottle, thanks Gu­mundur. Dark chocolate, cognac and peppery licorice aroma. Black, low head. Spicy chocolate entry, licorice cocoa beans, roast, coconut, vanilla/oak notes, cognac burn in the back of the troat. Mellow smooth mouthfeel. Fullflavored but well balanced and dangerously sipable, very nice.

Motor oil black. Huge aroma of wood, cognac, vanilla. Some toast, herbs.. very complex aroma and pleasant. Brutally hits you on the tongue, tiny hints of smoke, but huge malts, stickyness and oak. You can almost tell what brand of cognac was in the barrels. Very complex. Although being a powerhouse of 13% abv, this was never over the top. It┤s still quite delicate. One to savour and age more, but what a brew!
