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.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2009
Bottle. It pours a black body under a dense, finger-thick tan head, looking really gorgeous. There’s some smoked notes in the aorma, almost like a blend of smoked fish and bacon, but in a nice way. Burnt malts, peat, some alcohol and sweetness as well. The flavor is rather sweet, with roasted, peaty malts and a faint note of vanilla. Full-bodied and pleasantly warming. Long finish with sweetness, burnt malts and a little vanilla. There’s some dms as well in the beer, but just a tiny touch of it, else it’s a quite wonderful one, sure didn’t expect this from Iceland a year ago. 090720
