Í desember 2008 fór svo fyrsta sending til Svíţjóđar en hún fer á markađ á völdum stöđum í byrjun árs 2009. Ţar eru á ferđinni ţeir kumpánar Skjálfti og Móri en einnig hinn stórbrotni Lava sem er engum líkur. Hann er dekkri en nýstorknađ hekluhraun, 9,4% ađ styrkleika og inniheldur 70% reykt malt sem skilar sér vel í eftirbragđi. Ţessar vörur munu verđa fáanlegar í sćnska ríkinu (Systembolaget) og á völdum börum og veitingastöđum.

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Bottles in Reykjavik: Surprisingly delicious impy stout. Very earthy (even somewhat barnyardy) with rich notes of smoke, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, char and tar. Warming alcohol and a snappy hop bite round it out well.

Dark brown, almost black beer with little light brown head. Aroma has roasted malts, saltiness, caramel, dark chocolate, cola and smoke. Flavor has dark bread, roasted malts, caramel and licorice. Palate is quite full with quite strong carbonation and bitterness. Quite mild bite of bitterness with some alcohol. Aftertaste has roastiness, licorice, bitterness and smoke. Decent, kind of Black IPA style flavors. Smoke works well here, but does not overpower.

BlackHaddock (5188) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
8th May 2015: in a flight of six at the excellent Brewhouse, San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, A real surprise to see this and had to try it. Black body, tanned crown. Smoky and malty with a Sherry like richness tempered by a vanilla smoothness. This beer looked good and tasted even better: a real treat.

Bottle thanks to Alex. Pours a very dark brown with small tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong smoke, pepper, and roast. Thin mouth, smoke bomb, roast, chocolate, lingering smoke, decent.

Hideipa (24) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Belle en apparence, elle laisse un petit col brunâtre d’oů s’échappe un arôme torréfié et surtout fumé. En bouche, on ressent d’abord le côté sucré et liquoreux, auxquelles fait suite la torréfaction et faiblement, le fumé. Malheureusement, le sucre surpasse les autres saveurs. Moyennenement carbonaté, la finale est heureusement fumée, mais sans plus. Bref, le côté liquoreux diminu l’effet fumé de cette bičre.

Slaktmasken (70) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Pĺ flaska hos Flying barrel. Doftar rostad malt, rök och en del svavel. Även smaken har en del svaveltoner vilket inte tilltalade mig sĺ mycket.
