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.

Sammy (8628) - 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.

GT2 (8432) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 12, 2011
330mL shared with Travlr at Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, Sweden. The pour is a deep, deep ruby with a thinning, tan head. Not much retention and weak lace. Aroma is not too smoky, more salty, pimento, olives. Really just giant black olive nose. Taste is bacon, smoke, alcohol, Baileys Irish Cream, meaty, sweet maple, spicy chocolate. Really just outstanding. Palate is sharp, big carbonation, prickly, but ends up oily.

Maria (10149) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 21, 2011
It’s pitch-black with a light-brown, creamy head, and the aroma has notes of roasted malt, licorice, light smoke and dark fruits. The mouth-feel is fat. The flavour is sweet with notes of roasted malt, licorice, light smoke and dark fruits. Initially it’s fantastic, but after a while it seems to lack a bit to go the entire mile.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2011
500ml bottle thanks to tbadiuk. Best before 14.09.2013.
Appearance : Deep black with medium brown foamy creamy head. Not much lacing.
Aroma : Roasted malt with hops. Light coffee. Light chocolate. Not much alcohol.
Taste : Quite a lot of hops with some alcohol. Roasted malt and light coffee. Finish has great notes of dark chocolate with hops.
Overall : A bit too much alcohol on the first part of the finish. Second part is very nice with hops and nice dark chocolate. Not much smoke. I really think there’s a bit too much alcohol on the finish. Still it’s an enjoyable. Alcohol smooth out a bit at the end. I’ll let my second bottle age a while.

Kriegbaum (845) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Dark brown to black and pouring with a medium brown head. The scent seems sweet roasted malt, dark fruit and notes of smoke is sensed. The relatively high alcohol content perceived in both fragrance and flavor. Taste follow your nose. the aftertaste is slightly bitter and relatively dry

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle… Dark brown (nearly black) ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. Decent retention. The bouquet is of smoke and fudge with lesser notes of nickel and sarsaparilla. Medium to full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. Balanced nicely; the flavor provides good roastiness and modest bitterness alongside mild acidity. Finishes bittersweet and lightly smoky. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!
