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.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2011 Bottle. A black beer with a small, dense, dark beige head. Roasted, meaty nose with licorice and some coffee. The flavor has roasted malts, coffee, licorice and some chocolate. Full body, and a lasting coffee-like roasted finish with a touch of licorice. A pleasant and surprising stout. Rating: 7-4-7-4-15-3.7. 110330

Bottle, courtesy of saxo. A dark brown beer, seemingly see-through, and topped by a dense, tan head. The aroma has a lot of coffee, as well as chocolate and a touch of prunes. It’s smooth and medium bodied in the mouth, quite sweet in the flavor and with coffee and chocolate. Drying towards the end. A quite decent one, a pity the aroma is so boring. Certainly one of the Icelandic beers I could drink more of. 110416

Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of saxo. Pours a cloudy dark reddish brown with a beige head. Tar, sweet roast and a whiff of smoke in the nose. Medium body, heavy roast, tobacco and licorice with some malt astringency. A fairly rustic and rough Stout. 160411

Derek881 (1016) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Poured from the bottle into a tall glass to drink. The beer had a dark brown-black color with a silky consistency, featuring an average-sized, creamy dark tan head that had short retention but good cling. The aroma was mostly dark and malty, featuring coffee, some chocolate and caramel, a touch of dark fruit and some grainy hops too. Its taste was sweet and bitter, with components of coffee and chocolate, and some grain too. It had a wet, creamy body with lower carbonation, and a dry finish with a slight presence of alcohol.

Great beer. Pours nicely, with a foamy head. Great taste, with chocolate, burned aftertaste. Great differences in taste between bottle and draft. Much much better from draft.

Bottled: Black color, creamy brownish head. Malty aroma, dark chocolate and lots of cacao. Also fruitiness and notes of molasse. Flavor is malty, light sweet and very tasty. Also intensive notes of dry cacao, chocolate, fruity. Finish with roasted malt and roasted malt bitterness. Very tasty stout with pleasant cacao notes.
