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.

FatPhil (14174) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2016
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Black, tight tan head. First hit is a stabley leathery sweaty salty smokiness. Behind that, there’s a sweet roast, some burntness, but not harsh. Full sweet palate, a little slick, pleasant carbonation. Taste is a slightl less smoky version of the aroma, the sugar’s taken up the reins as the dominant thrust. There is some alcohol there too. But it’s an OK rich roast. Finish pleasantly bitter with old dry hops, and a touch burnt. OK, but not wowing me.
