Bottle at 73. Pours opaque black with a medium, frothy beige head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate malt, smoke notes, prunes and figs with earthy hops. Flavor is dark bitter malt dominant, dark fruits, medium earthy hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Cruzer (94) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Loved this one. Good dark coffee and nutty aroma, with a bitter flavour that had hints of chocolate and nuts. Would love to go to Iceland to try this again

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bad bottle I think. Poured black and flat. Aroma is sour root beer. Taste is a funky sharp sour. Still has decent roasted malt notes and a bitter finish. I got a sense of what the beer is intended to be like and based on that and other reviews I really wish I'd had the chance to taste this unspoiled. Perhaps in the future.

northropfrye (2445) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Dark black body, brown head though not lasting and not much lacing. Kind of milk, lactose and cocoa aroma, not too pronounced. Taste is roasty and semi-bitter, not too complex, but nice.

koppertone (60) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2014
Pours with minimal head. Very dark, almost black chocolate color. Mild carbonation typical for style. Actually fairly light body, less than what I was expecting. Smell of coffee, very light chocolate. Taste of coco, a hint of hops in there, a really pleasant coffee/coco aftertaste that lasts for some time. Have I had better stouts? Sure, but this one is a nice brew.

330 ml bottle. Pours black with full tan head. Aromas of alcohol, dark chocolate, and dry roasted malts. Flavors of roasted malts and dry cocoa powder. Dry. Somewhat thin. Basic stout. 10
