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.

Smoked imperial stout with a thick brown head. Sweet with chocolate and roasted malt in the flavour. The aftertaste is roasted malt, smoke and warming alcohol. Aroma of smoke chocolate and a bit of alcohol.

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.

Gorbalev (2974) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle, LCBO. Pitch black, small bubbly tan head. Lots of smoke and some chocolate in rich pleasing aroma. Rich chocolate in taste complemented by nicely balanced smoke and a medium body. Alcohol present and complimentary. Just an incredibly well put together beer - very impressed.

Kinz (3395) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Richmond 19th. Iceland tick! Black. Aroma of smoked bacon. Touch of pepsin. Flavor is a match, loads of smoke. Not bad, but not my favorite. Just not a fan of smoked beers for the most part.

SamP01 (601) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 23, 2013
500ml bottle. A deep dark black with a slowly dissipating brown head. Aroma of dark roasted malt, caramel, some mild dark fruit with a deep smoked essence. Taste is sweet dark roasted malt, some caramel ad mild dark fruity favors with a very distinct smoked flavor and mild bitterness. Palate is medium to full body, slightly creamy and oily with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a dark roasted caramel malt, dark fruit, ending with lingering bitter sweet smoked flavor and some alcohol. Smoked flavor and aroma are stronger as it warms up. Overall a very good, flavorful brew, very nice.

ben4321 (4330) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Location: Draft at Ginger Man (NYC), 1/19/13

Aroma: The nose has a heavy malty/smoked malt presence, with roast and chocolate notes
Appearance: Pours a dark brown-black color with a small head and pretty much no lace
Flavor: The taste is similar to the nose, but the smoke actually comes out even more nicely
Palate: The body is fairly full, it has a smooth feel, a smokey finish, and a little burn
Overall Impression: I was excited, and don’t let him fool you with his lack of recent ticking, so was Nick, for my/his first Iceland tick! Overall, I thought this was a pretty good example of a Smoked beer. Well done Iceland!
