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.

markas101 (1850) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2010
50 cl bottle, Fargo, ND, USA via Winnipeg. Dense black colour, creamy coffee foam head that dissipates quickly except at the edges. Aroma is mellow with burnt malt and a faint campfire cinder. Smoke comes through on the first sip, like a smoked gouda, with a sweetness and alcohol burn on the finish. Way to go Iceland.

drowland (6082) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2010
6/26/10. Sampled at the Tally Tasting 2010. Aroma is typical smoked awesomeness - bacon, meat campfire. Big sweet smoked meat flavor, and they aren’t kidding or hiding it.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of rich black chocolate with notes of smoke and light bitter roasted malt. Taste is also a very good mix between some roasted malt with notes of rich black chocolate and some smoke though not as much as I was expecting. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed overall and quite enjoyable though more smoke would have improve the flavour profile IMHO.

madsberg (10308) - Sřborg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2010
Bottled. Pitch black coloured. Dense brown head. Aroma of smoke, bacon, sweetness, roast and light coffee. Flavour is full of bacon and smoke. Chocolate, sweetness, brown sugar and caramel comes to mind as well. Meidum to full bodied. Smoky roasty end.

Sammy (8725) - 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.
