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.

(33 cl bottle from BunkerBeer) Pours pitch black with medium toffee head and a little lace. Aroma is smokey with notes of toasted malt. Oily texture, medium carbonation, full body, toasted finish. Taste is dark malt with astringent notes. Girlfriend says: "It was a bit too vinous."

_angst_ (3029) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2012 Bottle gifted by friend and consumed on September 24. He bought it about 1,5 years ago. Date of expiration printed on bottle is 120513. Pours pitch black with a fizzy brown head. Smell is very sweet and malty with some chocolate in it. Taste mimics the sweet and malty part of the smell well. There is a distinct alcohol taste to it. Mouthfeel is intense with prominent carbonation. After a short while the sweet, boozy, taste turns into a smokey aftertaste which in turn gives way for some dark chocolate after a while, leaving you with a rather dry and oily feel in your mouth. I very much like the mix of classical imperial stout tastes with smoked malts. The double aftertastes blew me away :). A very good and exciting beer!

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2011
0.33l bottle from Řlbutikken, Copenhagen shared with ClubGonzo and the rest of Bergen Tasting Crew. This is a really dark brown beer with a small sidesticking chocolate head. Aroma is quite unique to any imp stout I’ve tasted before. There’s some tar/peat and new car-smell, also light alcohol sweet, definitely lots of smoke in here as well and hints of sweet chocolate. Really different and nice aroma. Full-bodied, soft carbonation and oily to creamy mouthfeel. Quite nice flavors, there’s actually something that reminds me of stingy chili in here. Lots of smoke, some chocolate, good amount of salty licorice and hints of leather. Really pleasantly surprised over this!

Completely opaque black with a small brown head. Smell smoke, coffee, dark malts, chocolate, roasty. Taste soft, coffee, roasty, burned malts. Very much smokey aftertaste. Very good balance, alcohol well hidden. Full body with soft but good carbonation. Suits the beer, good stuff!
