TheJester (2199) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2010
500 mL bottle. (bb 14.09.2013). Opaque brown-black, with a nice brown head. Aroma of smoke, sweet something, overripe fruit. Flavour is dominated by smoke and maraschino cherries, with some roast, booze and cocoa. More fruit invades as it warms, to the point that I’m tasting Jolly Ranchers. Needs more roast. A little sweet up front, but there is a boozy bitterness in the finish. Good body. Overall, though, something’s just not working here for me. And it’s not the smoke. The smoke is fine, not too strong. It’s just too fruity. Or something.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2010
My first Icelandic beer. Okay, big deal... Very creamy and dark brown with a head that looked like a chocolate shake. Some smokiness in the aroma, but a lot of malt as well. A coffee taste with a bit too much residual sweetness and just a touch of bitterness. Then, right at the end of its lengthy aftertaste, I caught a touch of smokiness. Powerful stuff.

TimE (4155) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2010
Pitch black color, with light brown head. Tobacco leaves, snuff, milk chocolate, lots of roasted malts and a touch of smoke, slightly sweet nose. The mouth is surprisingly sweet and wham smoke hits and it is just about smoked gouda then some gouda, but too sweet, for what it is. A bit unbalanced. Liquorice. Interesting, but think a drier more roasty version would be excellent.
