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

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!

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!

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.

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.

gunnar (8003) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 22, 2015
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.

Ysok02 (1047) - MOns, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2015
Une bičre brune avec peu de mousse, une aromatique plutôt épicée et maltée mais une bouche trčs droite et raffraîchissante.

SVD (1514) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2016
Red brown beer, small head. Aroma is malt, coffee, roasted. Taste is watery, light flavour of coffee, malt and roasted. Aroma is better than flavour.

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?
