Beautiful foamy beer with good aroma of malt, caramel, fresh grains and a little hay. Lovely malty flavor with caramel notes and semi-dry end with good hops. It is a beer that I really like. It bears the stamp of quality and good craft.

Copper pour with thin beige head. Smells like sweet caramel goodness. Unfortunately tastes like watery caramel goodness with a bit of wet cardboard.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2015 Draft. Clear amber with a short white head. Simple malt and ester profile is red apples and caramelized sugar, while spicy phenols suggest cinnamon and nutmeg and metal flakes, while hops come across slightly vegetal and there’s a strange pumpkin flesh character present (and this is unspiced), but altogether it’s still enjoyable. Medium bodied, sweet and lightly bitter, though a little coarse and grainy and minerallic.

50 cl bottle at a posh restaurant in Torshavn. This is a beer than tastes better when you get what you are drinking. It is a darkish, reddish maybe-lager part made using the steinbier method of heating the mash by dropping hot stones into it - in this case old lava rock heated to 800 C and lowered in a metal cage, causing scorching with some back burnt tastes. Lacks the prowess of the Austrian and German equivalents. Could there be sulfur issues? I love the idiocy of it though. Pure "because it’s there" stuff.
