Clear brown color, short head. Aroma of some faint hop, bit fruity, malty, ’runderbouillon’ as Bullit described it :). Quite boring.

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.

Foxbush (1765) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2013 draft at 73 Restaurant and Cafe This was called Kaldi dark by Johanna the bartender. The beer poured a deep dark amber but not opaque with a nice beige head. This is a very balanced beer with a sweet aroma of caramel malts and so is the flavor. The beer also had an acidic side almost like cider mash. The carbonation was average for the medium body beer. The finish was sweet but smooth. No bitterness in the aftertaste.

Keg in the Kaldi Café, Reykjavik. Mahogany with a thin beige head. Not much aroma. The taste is light coffee and nut. Some choclate too. Creamy mouthfeel. OK.

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.

jackafholmes (1000) - - MAR 20, 2015
Keg at the kaldibar, reykjavik. Dark ruby colour with a good lacy light tan head. Aroma is quite plain, some toffee and some tangy bready notes. Taste is slightly sour and bitter. A bit fizzy and thin, very bloating. Not the best.

beeR (61) - 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.
