9 fl oz bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a small, brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, dark chocolate and alcohol. Sweet, smooth flavour of roasted malt, dark chocolate, smoke and licorice with a warming alcohol finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Very nice!

jayzz (304) - Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2014
For a smoked beer, this is quite balanced (like the way the overall sweetness is offset by the ashy bitterness),providing a nice depth among dominant flavors.

sulphursouls (21) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 16, 2014
This smoked imperial stout is the strongest beer in Iceland. It poured a rich black with a fawn head. The aroma was a wonderful smokey and toasted mix. On the palate it was oily but generally pleasant, the taste was a great sweet sour roast with a hint of ash, which finished very strong and smokey.

badhack (302) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 13, 2014
I remember lots of smoke, a bit meaty, oily and thick. Quite dark pour and a hopped finish. Not overly balanced. Roasted malt on the nose and tongue along with some cola.

330ml bottle @ home. Thanks Ulla!

Sweet aroma with some blue cheese? Beautiful black look with a darkbrown quickly vanishing head. Sweet smoky taste with ashy nuances. Alcohol feels background but not disturbingly. Good start with a first Icelandic beer for me!

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - MAY 20, 2014
Probably the best Icelndic beer I have tried so far, but it is well brewed and incredibly expensive. Easy to dirnk and etremely good.

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2014
A near perfect imperial stout. Bitter roasted malts meets smoke, ash, sweet chocolate and a strong alcohol finish, tickles the nose nicely.
