steinar (54) - rvk, ICELAND - JAN 30, 2011
Pours amber dark clear with about a inch of head. Aroma is light on the malty side. Flavor is on the sweet side, malty with some roasted notes. Little bitterness, slight hint of being sour. Palate is light and it’s slightly watery. Carbonation is soft between little and medium. Overall an average beer, it’s drinkable.

Derek881 (996) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Poured this beer from a bottle into a pint glass to drink. It had a dark, clear amber-brown color with a good-sized creamy tan head that had good retention and slight cling. The beer had a malty aroma with scents of caramel and coffee, and a bit of grainy hops. The taste was fairly sweet with a good coffee taste with touches of chocolate and caramel and a very slight bitterness. It had a fairly creamy, smooth body with light carbonation and a low amount of carbonation.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle thanks to fonefan: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a large clumpy-lacing froth of light tan head. Has a sweet dark caramel malty nose with some light smoky notes and dark fruity complexity. Body starts with some over-carbonation and lightly sweet dark caramel malts with a touch of oxidation and raisins before a drier bready finish with some lingering faint smoke. A pretty true to style and drinkable dunkel.

aracauna (3030) - Georgia, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Heavy carbonation. Large pssht when I crack open the cap, and the beer booms into a big foam when it hits the glass. Head is slow to die and easily revived with a light swirl. There’s not a lot of flavor going on, but in the back there is a bit of toasted almost-hazlenut. This really isn’t a bad beer.

fonefan (34188) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2010
Bottle 33cl. @ DŘE Tasting, Fox & Hounds, Holstebro.
Clear medium to dark amber color with a large, frothy, good lacing, fully lasting, off-white to beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, nutty, sugar, light hoppy, cardboard notes. Flavor is moderate sweet and acrid - burnt caramel bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20090825]

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Pours brown, red under light, with a two finger off-white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma is muted, some caramel, sweetness, bread. Sweet flavor, caramel malts, some dark fruit, light bitterness, bread. Semi-dry, refreshing finish. Definitely sweet, though. Medium carbonation. Didn’t know what to expect with this one and was pleasantly surprised.

JorisPPattyn (7772) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2009
Good dense and finebubbled, dirty-cream head over cola-coloured beer. Sweet dark malts, dark bread, maybe some molasses and manure. Sweet, dark malts, more dark bread. Bit soft drink finish, but aftertaste is bitterish, even hoppy. Rather spritzy MF, if not fizzy; light bodied. Very drinkeable, rather agreable dark lager. Beats anything I had so far from Iceland by lightyears.

thewolf (11099) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle. [thanks to the parents and my bigbro]
Pours deep red-brown with a fine, staying, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of toasted caramel, lightly roasted, some metallic notes (quite charcoal-like). Medium carbonation, a tad on the thin side. Flavour is rather sugary sweet. Light toasted, some roasted notes and a fair, grainy, earthy bitterness in the finish. Okay.

6 Mar 2009 Dark brown, good Icelandic. Thanks Siggi for driving me. Is it the Icelandic water making the distinct taste to all Icelandic beer?
