Pĺ flaska hos Flying barrel. Doftar rostad malt, rök och en del svavel. Även smaken har en del svaveltoner vilket inte tilltalade mig sĺ mycket.

jackafholmes (546) - - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle from a bistro near a waterfall in Iceland somewhere. Pours black with a red tint and a nice tan head like espresso. Aroma is strong coffee and liquorice, lots of smoke and some dark chocolate. Taste is slightly sour and quite bitter. Body is oily with medium carbonation. Bought it by accident and glad I did!

330ml bottle in Reykjavík. Aroma is coffee, bacon. Appearance is black with a brown-ish, coffee like head. Taste is sweet and light sour. Amazing mouth feel. Espresso and soft carbonation combined to an impressive beer. Well done.

I had this on tap while in Iceland and liked it so much I decided to bring a few bottles back. It didn’t seem as smokey from the bottle which was a downside, but still solid.

This is just truly not my style. Smokey brew. Too much smokey and if it were mine I would probable age and as it to settle.

Shared bomber, snifters. Nice smoke character and doesn’t not dominate the flavor. Smooth and creamy under the smoke. High ABV doesn’t show.

visionthing (3284) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2015
33cl bottle from Vinbudin, Reykjavik. Pours completely black with a small, beige head. Smoky and heavy malty with dark fruits, dark, bitter chocolate, hints of coffee. Fairly sweet, but very well balanced and very flavourful. Very dominated by bacon-like smokiness in the beginning, but balances out after some more temperature. Oooh! Delicious!

On bottle with Visionthing , thanks a lot! Pitch black color, ok foam . High aroma intensity; smoked bacon, roasted aromas, some licorice & coffee. Medium body & complexity. Some sweetness, ok bitterness. Enjoyable- but quite special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JDBaker11058 (1444) - Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Appearance: viscous, inky black, with a creamy dark tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma: definite smoke notes, but scads of chocolate, roasty coffee, light soy sauce, and vanilla. Taste: dark bittersweet chocolate, creamy cappuccino, roast coffee beans, vanilla, sea salt, black licorice, charred wood, and smoky peat. Finish: lingering bittersweet chocolate and smooth, smoky roasted malts. Notes: Wow, this was amazing. Smooth, rich, and delicious. The smokiness was clearly evident, but not overpowering, and there was a bit of umami saltiness that added a really intersting extra dimension. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club, laid down two years.

andrewturba (1151) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours a very dark brown with only a little light coming through the edges and a small-medium sized light brown head and a lot of tiny spots of lace. Aroma is smoke/peat, anise, roasted malts, cocoa, coffee notes and a little sweetness on the end. Flavour is anise, smoke/peat, roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, chocolate, mild bitterness, fairly dry and some burnt notes. Fairly easy to drink, well done on such a smooth but complex beer.
