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.

Experiment_Ale (992) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Draft at Torst wih Kimberly and Taylor. Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is burnt rubber, musky charred malt. Taste is charred malt, mild rubber that is not too offputting, oil; with all of that said these flavors kind of work together, and kinda work.

sic1314 (3199) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Poured deep dark brown with a tight beige head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roast malt. Full. Smooth body, flavour as the aroma, add some alcohol soaked raisins; lovely balance.

Vighals (1091) - Sřrumsand, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
Svart med rřdbrunt skum. Kaffe, mřrk sjokolade og svisker, hvor ble det av rřyklukten? Bitter smak, noe vinřs og smak av salt lakris. Kort ettersmak, lite kullsyre, salt avsluttning

mallen386 (20) - OKC, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Almost no carbonation. Poured super dark brown (almost black) from my 750ml bottle. Smells great, perhaps the best part. Noses smoke with some rubber like in a tire shop (not in a bad way). Would be good with a touch of something if in there. Chile. Middle of the road viscosity. Lighter mouthfeel than you would guess, making this bad boy highly drinkable. Touch is alcohol on the taste. Don't love the aftertaste but it is not unpleasant.

TBone (12541) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle 330ml
Dark opaque black color, small beige head. Smokey, bacony aroma. Medium-bodied. Caramel, sweetness, smokeyness, tar, bacon. Feels less than its ABV.

olio (6115) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2014
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Copenhagen.
Pours dark brown, almost black color with a small off-white head. Aroma is somewhat vinous, malty, some caramel and licorice notes with some alcohol notes. Flavor of licorice, roasted malts, salmiac, some cocoa and faint wooden notes. Feels slightly thin but still a great Smoked IS, very nice.
