Dedollewaitor (15435) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2011
33Cl. Bottle @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Ohh.. Have had my eyes on this since the first ratings ticked in years back. Pours black with a small creamy beige head. Sweet and hard roasted malts with a touch of smoke, vanilla and chocolate. Smooth and full bodied. Dry roasted end. Very nice.

Oakes (15358) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Very dark with a thin head. The aroma is smoky...a different type of smoke with some chocolate character as well. Rich smoke with lots of chocolate that blends well with the smoke. An intense imperial porter with a fairly rich smoke character, this is fun stuff. Iceland has come a long way from the days of Viking Lager.

Bottle, 9.4%. The aroma starts out citric but turns saltily smoked. Clear dark brown colour, deep chestnut. OK brown head. The flavour is nicely smoked, a ham/bacon type of smoke, pleasantly woody. Roasted and sweetish malt base with a boozy finish, alcohol bitterness.

mcberko (13523) - 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.
