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.

Only drawback is that temp should’ve been 5 degrees C lower :) Nose is smoke, weak port, alcohol, coffee, feel is medium, carb is low, taste is weak wood, nuts, sweet malt, chocolate,

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a nice old black with a resilient beige head. Smell is smoke, coffee and black chocolate. Taste is smoke, coffee, burnt caramel, roast, somewhat salty. Finish is smoke, pinetree, ash, burnt. Lots of lingering smoke. Light to medium body. Average carbonation. Style on the bottle said Smoked Imperial Stout - I felt this lacked complexity for an Imperial Srtout, but it was quite a good smoked beer.

diabel (1609) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle This is a nice imperial stout, but not great. It has (of course) a deep black body with a creamy brown head. The aroma has notes of dark fruit, molashes and some smoke which makes it quite subtle. The flavour is moderately bitter, lightly sweet.

pootzboy (1597) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
500ml bottle. Puts an opaque black ale in the glass. 2 finger brown cap, moderate retention, good lacing qualities. Aroma is pungent...all the big roasty malty tones with the dried fruit esters of a Ruski impy plus a measured but persistent smoke aroma...very nice nose to this one...well balanced, nothing over powers. Rich oily mouth, deeply flavorful character. Flavor starts with BIG smoky-roasty malt body..... mid palate some light sweetness, dark fruit, tobacco, vanilla pod, licorice breaks free of the smoked malts, finish is long as the dark malt char and hopping break out. Wow this is one big flavor beer with a decent complexity under the smokey malts. Just begging to accompany hearty meat dishes. Some may not like the smoke intensity (I think it’s mild actually but then I like Schlenkerla) I can’t wait to cellar a few and see what else peeks through the smoke.

LoFi (1595) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2010 Draught. Black with a small, light brown head. Aroma: a lot of smoke, salami, chocolate, some wine gums. Taste: (dark and milk) chocolate, licorice, wine gums, smoke, smoked meat (although not as much as in the aroma). Smooth, silky, creamy body.

milewide (1580) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2013
A fine stout, with both chocolate and roasted malt. However, smoke is minimal in both aroma and taste. Almost back color, and solid body. Average head.

Bif (1563) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 27, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours an almost black color with a small tan head and bits of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, some coffee and just a bit of smoke. Taste of roasted malt, almost burnt, dark chocolate some coffee, bit of caramel sweetness and a trace of smoke. Has a distinct bitterness and a dry finish. Fully body, smooth with a rich texture. A well crafted beer, with the 9.4% ABV very well hidden. I did not associate world class beer with Iceland until now.

Bouteille 500 ml. 9.4%. Couleur noire opaque, mousse brune. Arôme de chocolat, café noir et fumée du grill. En bouche, sirupeuse, douce, équilibre incroyable entre le malt grillé, café, alcool, fumée et notes de choco. Finale avec une légčre amertume, pain grillé, café..un peu de bois vanillé. Excellent équilibre.
