Snegurochka (389) - Tromsř, - JUL 23, 2012
330ml bottle @ Rosenberg, Reykjavik 12.Jul.2012 Dark mahogany body with spare beige head. Roasted, dark fruits and coffee beans. Pretty good, but not on a sunny summer night in Reykjavik. Time to go home- as I’ve sampled all the Icelandic beers in Rosenberg and starting to become both tired and tipsy after a long and sunny day in Iceland.

gunnar (6918) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 24, 2015
33 cl bottle at 3 Frakkar, Reykjavik. Pours clear dark amber with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel and dark toffee. Taste is sweet bready and toffeeish malts, smooth mouthfeel, a suitable companion to the whale steak, good Bock indeed.

jackafholmes (823) - - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle from the local bottleo, reykjavik. Clear coppery ale with small white head. Aroma is very malty (reminds me of bad hangovers in dingy pubs) a little chocolaty too. Taste is sweet (as all icelandic beers seem to be) and dryly bitter on the finish. Nice medium body but a bit over carbonated. Not as bad as all that!

3fourths (8799) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2015 Bottle. Clear dark ruby tones with a short off-white head, more of a dunkles bock in appearance. Malty-estery aroma of cara red malt red apple skin and cranberry flavoring with off-notes of copper and fabric / upholstery. Medium bodied, lightly sweet, sticky and rich in the mouth with sharply minerallic and acidic edges. Toasty red malt and dried peach slices and copper pennies in the mouth. Rough and coarse and syrupy-sticky at the same time. Not awful, but pointless.

Bottle, thanks to my brewmate T.K. who brought this from his Iceland trip!
Pours nice copper colored with a beautiful creamy off-white head. Smell has sweet malts and caramel. Starts malty-sweet, slight hoppy bitter, with lots of caramel. Middle part has much more hop bitterness, butvalso very nice sweet caramel notes. Finish is malty, caramelly, hoppy bitter with a slight metallic note.

abemorsten (3378) - Mosterřy, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2013
330 ml bottle kindly provided by my work colleague, Cecilie. Clear mahogany colored body and a dense light brown head. Wooden notes give way to more caramel and rock sugar on the nose. Full bodied and overcarbonated with a little alco warmth. Sweet caramel sauce with a bitterness that has a papery tinge to it.
