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.

Bottle. Pours brown black with a fairly quick tan tight soapy head that dissipates to a thin collar. Aroma is awesome smokey jerky/meat locker and peat with hidden chocolate mixed in. Taste is bitter and peaty with roasted malt and bakers chocolate showing, but the bitterness really (in my opinion) changes the experience. Palate is medium and dry bitterness with a off putting finish. This had an amazing start and then fell to a better than average smoked brew.

Fabulous beer! Poured at a good temperature with massive light brown head that settled after a bit and some lace. Color is (apparently) a clear, dark, almost, black ruby red. Aroma is malt, roast, smoke, vanilla. Flavor’s like nose, with a subdued but very good balance between sweet, bitter, and carbonic tang. Also cocoa; smoke is there but very complimentary. Body is soft, full, lush, round with carbonation just right. Finish is surprisingly of average length despite the bold style of beer, making this exceedingly drinkable; slight booziness.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 10, 2012
500ml bottle. My first Icelandic brew. The pour is just about pitch black, showing glints of mahogany in the right light. Moderate in size, a creamy, light brown head slowly deflates to a thin film with a small edge. Sudsy lace mostly rejoins the body. The nose is sweet and smoky, showing a malt-forward base of dark chocolate, reduced dark raisin, caramelized dates, and soft, sweet, mild smoke. The rustic fruitiness reminds me of pipe tobacco. Flavors follow suit, sweet and caramelized, with notes of burnt sugar, charred fruits, bittersweet chocolate, and slightly acrid, earthy, biting smoke. There’s a hint of ashiness as well. The palate is dense and laden with excessive sugars, drinking slow and syrupy. Carbonation is appropriately moderate, but it doesn’t do much to quell the laborious quaff. It’s not all that boozy, but the ashy finish is somewhat troublesome. Overall, not my thing. At least not anymore. At one time, I would’ve really enjoyed this brew, but in my old age I can hardly get through a glass of it. That’s more a testament to my change in taste than any deficiencies that this beer might show.

Bottle from Bruisin’. Pours an attractive deep dark brown with reddish tints and a frothy tan head. I like the smoky presence in the nose. Rather than meat or campfire, this one is like a Scotch or a cigar. Notes of vanilla, licorice, coffee, leather are also here. Palate is creamy, not extra heavy. The flavor also has that sharp smoke up front, cutting through the mix of chocolate, licorice, nuts and other malty attributes. I even get some dark fruit suggestion deep in the finish. Quite an enjoyable beer!

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Serving: 500 ml bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a very dark brown with a large, active head of dark tan foam. The nose has lots of mineral and smoke notes with some smoked meat and earth underneath. The flavor is very earthy with some booziness and a mineral, metallic note. Kind of weird. The smoke isn’t overpowering and works well with the rest of the beer. Light dark fruit undertones emerge as the beer warms. Medium to full bodied, the abundant carbonation keeps things a little lighter on the tongue. Medium, smokey and slightly bitter finish. Not too shabby.
