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.

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.

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.

500ml bottle from LCBO. Bottle.Pours black with a brown head that reduces quickly to an almost unexistant ring. Aroma of smoke almost burnt wood,roast, licorice and some fruitiness.The smokiness continues in the flavour with the roast and licorice ,some alcohol and a hint of apples.Full bodied. Surprisingly good.

Jet black pour, mocha head. Big aroma of smoke, bacon and roasted malt. The flavor is very roasty, loads of roasted burnt malt, some smoky bacon and soy. Light bitter finisj with more smoke. Pretty interesting stuff. Very intriguing brewery.

Extremely dark pour with a deep tan head. Slightly red in colour. Almost like a burgandy/black. Strong scent that was evident immediately upon pouring and filled the room. Strong smokey scent with some flowery tones. A fruit I can’t place as well. Very pleasant smelling. Thick smokey mouth. Boozy especially in the aftertaste. Low carbonation. Aftertaste lingers. Overall very pleasant spicy smokey beer that is just a touch too boozy. One of the best I have had in a while and thus far the best this year.
