Best beer so far in Iceland- others have been dull yellow lagers. Bit sweet on aroma but tastes great.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled at RBESG ’07, thanks Kalli! Clear amber colour. Refreshingly dry with lovely firm, nutty malt. Near all flavours derives from roasty malt. There’s butter and wood. The mouthfeel is light but firm and the finish carefully salty. By far and away the best Icelandic beer I’ve ever had!

As with the Kaldi Lager the aroma was a bit sickening sweet and its head was a bit thin, but it also tasted good. In fact this beer is even better than Kaldi Lager. 10/10 on taste!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear brown color with a big frothy off white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, roasted malts and light chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, nuts, light chocolate and faint fruity esthers. Nice dry finish and medium carbonation round out this beer nicely.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Kaldi, Reykjavik. Pours clear dark ruby with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste is well balanced, but on the sweet side as expected, but a nice weak dry finish saves this one, decent dunkel.

Une bičre brune avec peu de mousse, une aromatique plutôt épicée et maltée mais une bouche trčs droite et raffraîchissante.

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?

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.
