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.

50 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA via Winnipeg. Dense black colour, creamy coffee foam head that dissipates quickly except at the edges. Aroma is mellow with burnt malt and a faint campfire cinder. Smoke comes through on the first sip, like a smoked gouda, with a sweetness and alcohol burn on the finish. Way to go Iceland.

A nice black body with a brown head that had mild retention and good lace. a light bodied, low viscosity look to it. Aroma had good chocolate malts some coffee and a decent but mild smoke note. Flavor was similar to it. A well balanced beer. Alcohol seemed well hidden. Finish was slightly dry. A good mouth-feel.

Bottle. Big thanks to skinnyviking! Richly dark tan head that doesn’t last long, and nearly black hue with brown edging. Very roasty aroma with chocolate and smoked peat. Flavor has very dark bittersweet chocolate, light earth and peat. Less smokey in the flavor, but really nice. Medium body and finishes roasted and dry. Nice brew!

DalzAle (2012) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle thanks to Piscator34! Dark black pour, dark brown and quickly dissipating carbonation and a slightly mellow smoky peat aroma. Flavor was very earthy, creamy roasted dark malts, lactose, and finished with an aftertaste of semisweet chocolate chips and plenty of campfire smoke. Not a smoked beer for begginers, but unique and tasty nonetheless. Really glad I got to try this

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!

TXBadger (2002) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2014
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.

poisoneddwarf (1995) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2012
16.9 oz bottle. Pours opaque black with a medium tan head with good retention. Aroma initially consists of dough and Whoppers before the smokiness comes through. Taste is smoky and chocolatey and ends on a bitter note. Mouthfeel is oily and the carbonation is medium to soft. Nice one.

Aroma as you would expect of a imperial stout. The smoked malt is in the taste. A well balanced beer!

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Now this is a stout! Great smokey aroma with chocolate and wood. Pours black with a dense tan head. Taste is sweet and smokey with a great coffee malt throughout. This is unforgettable.

Pours dark with medium off white head Aromas of rauch, medwurst, Creamy and sweet palate. Not the smoky taste that apoears in aroma. Taste is a mixed feeling btw dark fruits and medwurst. Good but pls remove the rauch
