Tunnuţroskađur Surtur er einstakur í röđ íslenskra bjóra; dimmleitur Imperial Stout sem hefur veriđ agađur í frönskum eikartunnum.

Surtur er fyrsti íslenski bjórinn sem fćr ţessa konunglegu međferđ. Í tunnunum hefur ólgandi krafturinn náđ hinu fullkomna göfuga jafnvćgi viđ einstaklega flókiđ eikarlagt koníaks- og kakóbragđiđ, međ angan af vanillu og kókos.

Tunnuţroskađur Surtur tekur ţér fagnandi á ţorranum – en eldist líka eins og fínasta koníak!

haukur (1802) - Reykjavik, - JAN 26, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2016 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

Pours pitch black and looks silky smooth in the glass. Small - almost non-existent tan’ish 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 Guđmundur. 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.
