3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
