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.

jackafholmes (713) - - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle from a bistro near a waterfall in Iceland somewhere. Pours black with a red tint and a nice tan head like espresso. Aroma is strong coffee and liquorice, lots of smoke and some dark chocolate. Taste is slightly sour and quite bitter. Body is oily with medium carbonation. Bought it by accident and glad I did!

330ml bottle in Reykjavík. Aroma is coffee, bacon. Appearance is black with a brown-ish, coffee like head. Taste is sweet and light sour. Amazing mouth feel. Espresso and soft carbonation combined to an impressive beer. Well done.

CRock (111) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
I had this on tap while in Iceland and liked it so much I decided to bring a few bottles back. It didn’t seem as smokey from the bottle which was a downside, but still solid.

This is just truly not my style. Smokey brew. Too much smokey and if it were mine I would probable age and as it to settle.

Shared bomber, snifters. Nice smoke character and doesn’t not dominate the flavor. Smooth and creamy under the smoke. High ABV doesn’t show.

visionthing (3683) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2015
33cl bottle from Vinbudin, Reykjavik. Pours completely black with a small, beige head. Smoky and heavy malty with dark fruits, dark, bitter chocolate, hints of coffee. Fairly sweet, but very well balanced and very flavourful. Very dominated by bacon-like smokiness in the beginning, but balances out after some more temperature. Oooh! Delicious!
