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.

I drank this a few times last year. I like it a lot but I can’t rave about it. This year I picked it up again and I must say it’s an odd bird, and of course that’s a good thing. There’s a bit of chocolate in the aroma but most roasted coffee and a lot of smoke. Palate is good but I think it could work better with less carbonation. Taste is very nice though, but not a standout for me. A bit boring but also nice in that way, if this we’re to be my favourite style or something, it exudes a classic quality. Very dry and subtle, with an understated sweetness and very bitter smoky lengthy finish. A nice beer to savour if in the mood, but by no means a thirst quencher.

radiomgb (2388) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Near black in colour, thin beige head, light lacing. The aroma is very smoky, lots of dark chocolate, coffee, mocha, lots of burnt malts. The flavour is very roasty, lots of smoke, sweet, liquorice, chocolate and coffee. Burnt mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, roasty and burnt, smoky. Pretty big on flavour, packs a lots of smoke in this.

Pours black like oil with khaki head. Smells of roasted malt, smoked malt, and some raw cocoa; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more smoke.

esox (1112) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Fresh bottle exported, got it as a gift (thx Nelli). Pitch black beer with lacy beige head. Intense aroma deep and rich beachwood-smoke, smoked ham, strong and sweet/worty basemalt, a hint of roasted bread, chocolate, slightly fermented plums, a hint of vanilla and quite strong herbal hoppiness. Just a hint of licoricy alcohol. Loads of sweetish malt flavor, a hint charcoal-roast, firm and clean bitterness. Amazingly soft, pudding-like chocolate in the finish mixing with intense but soft smokiness, perfectly balanced woody and slightly herbal bitterness and the necessary alcoholic warmth. Full bodied, slightly oily and velvety smooth texture. It’s all about balancing all the diverse components and this beer nails it! Seriously good stuff it is.

12 oz sample on tap at Holsteins in the Cosmopolitan in Vegas. The aroma has some anise and licorice present. Light roast and medium sweetness present. Opaque black body with a small to medium dark brown head. Starts with a little cardboard and sherry with oxidation. Becomes a little roasted in the middle along with a little unsweetened chocolate. Finishes quite dry, and rather woody.

Franzen (354) - SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2014
Smoke and leather aroma, hints of dark chocolate and very subtle hints of blueberries. Malty sweet, Caramel, chocolate, cream and nuts in the taste. The Malty taste is pretty soon interrupted by the smoke, campfire and bitterness. Still a good smoked stout but remember it as better

Flaska delad med @thaalcoholic, tack! Svart med ljusbrunt skum. Doftar russin och portvin. Smakar tjärpastil. En riktigt bra smoked... Bra första Islänning

My first Icelandic beer, and I’ve looked forward to it... no reason, really, except that it’s my first new country in a long while. I hope it’s a good’un.
Nice pour to this beer, having a deep, nearly opaque mahogany body with a slender light chocolate head. The aroma has some woody, ashen traces along with bittersweet chocolate, maple syrup, vanilla, and a touch of dark dried fruit. The flavor contains all of the above along with a hint of lactic sourness. The smokiness also increases, ham-like, not overbearing. Just tasty.
I look forward to having some more beers from Iceland. To date, my main appreciation of the country comes from the sagas scripted by Snorri Sturlsson.
