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.

Quevillon (2729) - Boisbriand, Quebec, - MAY 2, 2013
500 ml bottle purchased at the LCBO on Rideau and King Edward (Ottawa) on March 1, 2013. Black, small head. Aroma of smoked malt, slightly sweet wheat. Malted barley taste slightly smoky, quite dry, bitter alcohol. Not bad, but not enough smokiness that I wanted!

Ysok02 (539) - MOns, BELGIUM - NOV 23, 2015
Robe brune, mousse peu abondantes. Nez puissant et complexe sur des notes chocolatées, fumées, chocolatées et lactées sur un fond de raisin de Coritnthe. Bouche tout en douceur et en tension, avec une belle note fumée, peu de bulles, amertume présente en finale mais sans excčs. Une bičre qui évoque certains Madčre. Trčs intéressante. A déguster au coin du feu

Pours a rich dark brown with a khaki head, quickly dissipating with little lacing. *koff* Little bits of *koff* dark chocolate in the nose and mouth, *hackhackhack* there’s also plenty of peaty *wheeeeeeze* smoke. *Gack*

tricksta_p (2422) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2015
On tap at Micro Bar, Reykjavik. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, lots of sweet chocolate, smoke, some liquorice. Flavour is medium sweet with a light bittersweet finish. Not the heaviest Imperial Stout, but it’s smooth and complex with a subtle but effective smokey touch.

hackobock (2433) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2015
August 10, 2015. Bottle at home, courtesy of linusb, thanks!
Dark brown, almost black with a small brown head leaving a lasting ring on the glass. Aroma is roasted with coffee, tobacco, dark chocolate, quite subtle smoked notes with smoked meat, ash and some sweet notes of toffee and vanilla. Taste is light to medium sweet, dry roasted bitterness and light smokey notes. Finish is dry roasted, more smoke coming through in the end as well as chocolate and slight hints of vanilla and notes of alcohol with a very dry lasting roasted note. Medium bodied, soft, small bubble carbonation, texture is dry. A nice subtle smokey stout with a very dry roasted feeling to it.

A very good smoked stout. Pours a deep black with a brown head. Smells of vanilla and smoked bacon. Taste is vanilla upfront, followed by lots of smokiness, bacon and sausage, and some chocolate in the finish. Had on tap at Mikkeller Bar.
