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.

Sample after sample of this at the Sam’s smokeout, Durham. Whoa, beer of the event for me (at least of the commercially released brews present). Little did I think I’d be craving a smoked imperial stout on a May day but the smell of meats in the air, the mild drizzle, and the sheer awesomeness of this beer’s nose drew me in. Killer body, thick and gritty with just a touch of oiliness to it and a fat head. Anointed for battle. Body is hefty, creamy, silky, with some grit at the back end that seems to evoke the mild notes of salt and bitterness in the taste. Tons of chocolate, smoke, and vanilla tannins along with deep bitterness, like ristretto (touch of anise too). Really well done.

Huge head on top of a very dark oily looking beer. Aroma of smoke and salty ham. Taste is full of roast and salty ham. Bitter finish. Very easy drinking for as heavy as the taste is.

At SIBF 2012. Black pour, with a tan head. Pretty. Beef jerky and Italian sausage on the nose, with some chocolate behind. Flavor follows, though it isn’t as full and dry as the nose -- would like to have seen just a bit more malt character come through. Nice, though.
