A fine stout, with both chocolate and roasted malt. However, smoke is minimal in both aroma and taste. Almost back color, and solid body. Average head.

laiti (6826) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2013
33 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 03.01.2014. Thanks Timo A!
Aroma is rather nice and smoky with tar and licorice. Flavour has peat, salty licorice, whisky, smoke, coffee and herbal notes. Very nice stuff, reminds me of De Molen Hemel & Aarde.

Brouwerij (957) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, near black with a finger of fine light brown head. Settles quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is heavily smoked malt, very smoky throughout, noticeable alcohol. Flavor is sweet malt fading quickly into strong smoked malt, roasted malt tones. Mild alcohol in the finish. Nice smokiness that lingers. Soft carbonation, full body, and thick, slightly chewy texture. Very rich, smoky, strong, delicious, an excellent beer.

StoutHead (841) - DENMARK - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep red with a small light-brown head. The second Islandish beer I’ve had and by far the best. Starts off sweet with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice smokey taste of roasted malt, coffee, fruits, a bit of chocolate, and a whole lot of licorice which comes out right away. Really good.

Imaena (2001) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2013
Bottle. This is a nice smokey stout with a nice easy drinking profile and killer label art.

Thisis12ptfont (967) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 7, 2013
Aroma of bread, dough and nutes. Dark black with a medium size foam. Toasted flavors of caramel, yeast, nuts, vanilla and oak. Strong alcohol and belgian sugar characteristics. Overall, primarily yeasty flavor with vanilla and caramel flavors. I’d give this a B+ rating.

thebhoy (61) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2013
Bottle from the LCBO. First Icelandic beer and I was quite impressed. The last two smoked beers I had I remain on the fence about--not the fault of the beer so much as I’m not sure it’s my style. But the smokiness in this beer goes so wonderfully with the rest of the flavours. It is a very well balanced beer. Nose of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and of course the hint of camp fire smokiness. Full bodied, dark, with a good tan head, this thing has a long finish that mixes the sweetness of a good imperial stout, with the interesting spark of a smoked beer. Very nice.

Sregnar35 (1020) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Tap at the abbey. Pours black with a fitting ash colored head. Aroma is smokey and roasty. Flavor is smokey and sweet, chewy bread, roasted marshmallow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
