Deep ruby red basically dark brown almost black. with a frothy, thick beige lasting head. Smells of deep roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Nice roasted chocolate taste with some burnt elements, malt, caramel and a smoky dry coffee finish. I like it but it feels a bit burnt.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 1/22/15 from a capped 330mL bottle purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours opaque nearly black with an average tan head that slowly recedes to a thick ring and thin spotty lace. The nose is toasted, some coffee, vanilla, and dark chocolate. The flavor is very dry, more dark chocolate and cocoa nibs, plenty of coffee, with just a hint of the vanilla, and a very pleasant bitterness on the back of the palate. The body is medium plus with lively carbonation and a long roasted coffee and toasted cocoa nib finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/21/15. 12oz (ish) bottle at World of Beer Destin. Very random rating find. Dark brown pour under a small tan head, mild lacing. Nice aroma, obviously foreign stout, if that makes sense - very toasty, minerally, a bit of soy sauce. Very toasty flavor, caramel, biscuity, lightly roasty, very balanced, slightly minerally. Tasty.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown that stops a shade short of black. Head disappears almost immediately. Malty aroma but the taste is a bit of a let down.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours brown/black with a thin beige head. Aroma shows chocolate, moderate roast, and green coffee. Flavor is primarily roast with a nice coffee integration. Overall body is moderate and strangely soft with a nice roast bitterness on the finish. If i’m ever in iceland, i think i know what i’ll be drinking.
