COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Í desember 2008 fór svo fyrsta sending til Svíþjóðar en hún fer á markað á völdum stöðum í byrjun árs 2009. Þar eru á ferðinni þeir kumpánar Skjálfti og Móri en einnig hinn stórbrotni Lava sem er engum líkur. Hann er dekkri en nýstorknað hekluhraun, 9,4% að styrkleika og inniheldur 70% reykt malt sem skilar sér vel í eftirbragði. Þessar vörur munu verða fáanlegar í sænska ríkinu (Systembolaget) og á völdum börum og veitingastöðum.

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.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle from LCBO store 575. A very dark motor oil liquid decants in my goblet, and is topped with a respectable two finger mocha froth, leaving some pretty webbing on the glass. Roasted coffee bean nose hints at smoke, vanilla, leather, and licorice. Sweet and malty, with smoke and a marked hop bitterness to perfectly balance. Alcohol not really detectable in the full body and velvety finish. Great effort!

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a big and dense cappuccino colored head. Sweet and ashy aroma with notes of nuts, caramel, smoke Taste of chocolate, caramel, sweet malt, roasted malt and licorice. Easy drinkable, but maybe a tad too sweet..

Plovmand (6501) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2011
Bottle. It pours pitch black with a creamy longlasting tan head. The aroma is hard roasted with notes of tar and smoke and has a deep lying solid caramel base. Chocolate and light coffee notes. The flavour is sweet chocolate, smoke, hard roasted malt, tobacco and ends up quite sweet and a bit cloying.

mcberko (6568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2011
12 oz. bottle, pours black. Chocolate, smoke, licorice and burnt roasted malt on the nose. Flavour is extremely smoky, with iodine, oak and roasted malt. Too much iodine and smoke - doesn’t seem like it’s as good as it should be, based on other ratings and descriptions. Still good though.

Thanks to Norm!!! Black pour with a big light brown head. Smoke, chocolate, and light woody notes. Flavor is a tremendous balance of smoke, chocolate, espresso and lactose. Awesome brew!

(From Andy, TheJester, thanks!) Le liquide a une robe noire. La mousse brune se transforme en un mince anneau. Au nez, des arômes de chocolat et de fumée se partagent l’espace. L’alcool n’est pas agressif en exprimant un côté floral très agréable. Le goût permet de découvrir des saveurs de grains rôtis et fumés avec de douces pointes chocolatées. L’alcool est tout aussi goûteux et se manifeste encore par des saveurs florales et légèrement piquantes. En bouche, le liquide a une structure étoffée avec une effervescence plutôt modérée et une texture huileuse. La finale se fait sur des notes amères de grains rôtis qui sont chauffées par un alcool modérément intense.

rodenbach99 (3161) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Bouteille de 500ml. Bière noire avec une belle mousse brune, elle est persistante sur le pourtour. Arôme fumé très invitant, du chocolat, peu de rôtie ou de torréfaction. En bouche la texture est soyeuse, gouleyante, le fumé est discret mais présent. Les saveurs sont intenses. Une dose de chocolat. Une bonne amertume en finale. Cette bière est tout en équilibre. 8/10

500 mL bottle from LCBO. Black pour with quickly dissipating mocha head. Smoke dominates the nose. Lots of residual sweetness with just a touch of the bitterness on the finish. Roasty, coffee malts predominate. Smoky flavour. Had it with tacos, which sounds weird, but gave a nive chipotle type mouth feel. Impressive imperial stout.
