thewolf (11254) - 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?

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2009
Bottled (thanks to Thomas B for bringing this beauty home from Iceland!). Deep ambery brown colour with small beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, some hops with mild toffee, burnt wood and smoky notes. Also quite nutty notes towards the finish. Way more complex than I waited it to be. Well done!

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2009
Drank on a ferry when shared by Eugene. Poured a hazed amber color with an off-white head. Light notes of smoke and roasted malt. The flavor again had light notes of roasted malt. Thin and watery with a hint of smoke and a touch of raisin. Light body. Should have thrown it overboard.

beeR (60) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 7, 2009
33 cl bottle, alcohol store in Iceland.Ruby amber and clear beer, with a dense, creamy nutty head. Need to wait for worm in order to catch the aromas featrures, some malty and sweet notes and roasted hints. The flavor starts sweet and a roasted malty bitterness, with a dry finish and metallinc feelings. Medium body and good carbonation. The hopeless reseacrh of good beer in Iceland led me to the only one slightly characterized icelandic beer.

theisti (3296) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 9, 2008
330 ml bottle purchased at the Vín Búđ - Kringlan, Reykjavik, Iceland. Pour is light orange, ruby, brown - clear. 2 inch off white foamy head. Aroma is dirty chemical, some nut-caramel sweetness. Taste is better than the nose, somewhat sweet, smooth drinkable palate.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2008
Bottle at Rover, Göteborg; great generosity of Pelle
Dark amber color; creamy head. Light aroma of cereals, carmel and very light Saaz. Medium body strength, with a strong caramel flavor and some dark chocolate; it has a good bitterness level, but the caramelized malts cover the hop. The end is dry, as it seems to be quite common for this brewery. Not bad.

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2008
Bottled. an amber beer with a lazing thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, and so is the flavor, though added a light note of metal, leading to a dry bitter and slightly metallic finish. Thanks to Emil for bringing this home from Iceland.
