Bottle at 73, Reykjavik. Lovely malty flavour-stong but not overpowering. Incredibly well balanced and a very well crafted beer. Worth to trip to Iceland alone and one of the most impressive beers I have tried in 2015 ( so far ) A must try.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I found that the alcohol taste in this beer ultimately is too much. It starts and finishes with the alcohol a pronounced taste and the middle a really pleasant malty sweetness. It didn't taste much like most of the red ales I have had but was definitely worth a botle. Stick to the lava stout and roodul iPa from this brewery.
