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.

Sammy (8566) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2010
Pours opaque black with reddish brown 1.5 inches of soapy head that sticks to the side of the glass. Big roasty aroma with some smoke. Middling mouthfeel. The taste is definite smoked malt,with chocolate, the carbonation is right there. Alcohol somewhat hidden, it does feel a little boozy in aftertaste.

DocLock (7829) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2012
16.9 oz bottle from Blue Dog. Pours Brazil nut shell black with 1-finger tan head. Nose is rauchy black patent malt, cacao, molasses. Tastes rich, hugely smoky, with mid-palate sweetness, molasses (blackstrap), figgy fruit, and blackberry notes. Palate is thick, rich, and smoky, and gets a bit hot late. I’m not sure, but I think this pops my Iceland cherry, and I am happy yet guilty about that, as I envisioned my Iceland cherry popping being in a hot spring with a blonde super model. Oh well. This one is not near the Aecht offerings, but is a damned fine beer in its own right.

NikkTwist (1589) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 Draft at Monks. Poured nearly black with a slim dark tan head. Dark and smoky. Very well blended. Smooth. Tobacco. Rotted fruit (in a good way.) Raisins. Like a burned Barvarian Village (in a good way :p) Sweet malty flavors but a dry creamy finish. Strong, potent and worth a try.

yiannnos (857) - , CYPRUS - APR 22, 2012

Nocturne (775) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
330ml bottle. Black with a finger of mocha head. Nice aroma with the smoked character standing out. Plenty of liquorice and roast, with a fruity blackberry sharpness helping things along. Finishes a little sweet and fairly creamy. I assumed a big, smoked imperial stout like this would be a real lion, but it turned out to be more of a lamb. It’s actually quite soft and gentle. But don’t let that put you off: this is well worth seeking out even if you’d prefer a beast.
