Pours black. Sweet malty aroma. Taste is plain malty and sweet. Caramel notes. Very little carbonation. Smooth on the palate. Light bodied. Very like the icelandic malt but with added flavor and less carbonation.

A sweet stout ?? I didn’t find any thing like a sweet stout. More like a normal ale or dark lager. Color is ruby. Aroma and flavor is sweet.

DavidTheStout (2) - Kopavogur, ICELAND - DEC 5, 2003 does not count
The first thing a noticed about this one is the non-existing head, and then the aroma..Which was close to nothing, but after a few whiffs, I found a sweet malty aroma, followed by a touch of hops. The taste is just awful, a bad mix of sugar, malt and hops. I was extremely dissapointed by this one, and I have no idea what I was thinking when I first bought this one, and called it good!
