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.

SlovakSniper (2807) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
(Sample at rodenbach99 Iceland beer festival) Very dark brown liquid with a ring of foam. Nose is a bit off, some weak roasted notes with chocolate and light coffee. Something like a schwarzbier. Mouth is about the same with small roasted pieces. Palate is on the medium side with a good carbonation and a watery texture. Aftertaste is very short with fantomatic roasted notes. Many thanks to Yan for bringing back this bottle from Iceland.

cryptobard (281) - DENMARK - JUL 31, 2011
Roasted malt. Very dark - almost black - with a persistent head. Had from the bottle. Probably the best Icelandic beer you can get, regardless of style.

hopscotch (8529) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle… Man, this beer was a bitch to find in the database since the label is printed entirely in Icelandic and ratebeer’s listing is entirely English. Thank God for hoosierbeergeek.blogspot.com and, of course, Google. Anyway… Pours clear and mostly black with a small, fluffy, cream-colored head. So-so retention. The chocolaty, nutty aroma presents lesser notes of yeasty Russian black bread, spicy clove and dark fruits. Medium-bodied with busy carbonation. Nicely balanced. Leans just a hair toward the sweet side of balance, but pretty even overall. Dark chocolate and roasted nuts stand out in the flavor. Finishes crisp and very clean. Interesting. Flawless. Odd, but good.

50belair (1850) - Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle shared at the District. Dark brown/black pour with a small tan head. Weak and discombobulated with coffee, burnt roasted malt, and bitter chocolate flavors. The nose was faint but sorta followed suit.
