My parents brought back a bottle of this from Iceland. The beer pours to a glowing amber body with a white head. The aroma is malty with some cereal grains. The flavor is malty with a light banana and stone fruit. Graham crackers. Almost like a barleywine dunkel. Medium bodied and easy drinking.

Drunk on site at Skaftafel, South Iceland. Tastes better when taken while looking at the Vatnajokull glacier from whence it came and surrounded by the thyme that goes into it. Fairly heavy with hay, bread, grass, herbs, earthy. A rather special beer but need to understand the environment to appreciate it.

haukur (1305) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 17, 2013
Almost dark red-ish color with a small but lacing head. Aroma is malt, some hops, bread, cereal and some grass. Some tiny sweetness which balances well with the bitter tones. Well made brew.
