Dashimus' rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
Dashimus (226) - London, Greater London, - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle from Vinbudin, Reykjavķk. Pours black with a thick, voluminous tan head that is persistent to the end. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, milk chocolate. Nicely balanced aroma. Maybe even a hint of golden Virginia tabacco. Flavour is moderately bitter with a medium sweetness. Very long and dry finish. Disappointingly a little thin bodied but creamy mouthful nonetheless. Possible aftertaste of dark fruits very subtle.

Not bad, don’t recall seeing this beer when I was in Iceland though. I’ve had this beer for a year and I finally got round to opening it, probably wouldn’t buy it again.
