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.

thornecb (5318) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Pours mahogany-tinged black into a shaker. Mocha head with good retention recedes leaving trailing lace. Sour chocolate aromas. Smoky, dry chocolate upfront turning sweet in the lasting espresso finish.

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 (10532) - 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 (3252) - 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.

Gummidoft. lite konstig sötma, brödig, aska (!!), sälta, lite rökighet. Smaken blir lite jobbig.

gyllenbock (7168) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle bought in Reykjavik. Black with a small head. Drinkable but both the aroma and taste were weak. Coffee, chocolate, caramel and some smoke. Mild bitterness and not that long aftertaste.
