COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Stout was first produced in 2008 and was the first Icelandic Stout. Dark, roasted aroma, espresso beans, dark chocolate and cocoa are words that can be used to describe our Stout. It is intense in texture and character, yet relatively easy drinking and balanced.

Countbeer (4302) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2012
Bottle: Thanks Tim: Medium sized, airy but pretty vast tan/light brown head which slowly changes into a thick sticky lacing, on top of a deep dark black ish colored beer. Smell malts, stingy malts, dust, coffee, cinnamon, wood, autumnal herbs and toasted herbs and some toasted/roasted malts. Taste toasted herbs, light roasted malts, dusty spices and some dry wood notes, some darker chocolate, light bitterness and a lighter darkened sweetness, some hints of coffee, coffee roast, roasted barleys and roasted herbs. Well balanced and pretty smooth. The aftertaste is light roasty with some grass tints and a light bitterness. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel with a light spicy sprinkle, medium body and a light watery but a bit more creamy texture. Interesting beer and very decent considering the alcohol percentage.

rosenbergh (6472) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2012
330 ml bottle. From Iceland. Þakka þér Jere!
Black colour with small greyish tan head. Sweetish malt, liquorice, brown sugar and touch of soy sauce in aroma. Flavour is very malty. Not roasted but grainy and a bit burned. Some sweetness accompanied with mild alcohol. Thinnish for Stout but kind of heavy for Schwarzbier so this is somewhere in the middle. Some sweetness that won’t be quite Schwarzbier-y. Well it’s very drinkable and somewhat enjoyable but it’s not quite hitting the spot. It’s not bad far from it. Just something’s missing.
