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.

Dashimus (226) - London, Greater London, - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle from Myvatn Nature Baths, Iceland. Pours black with a thick tan head that fades quickly to lighter tan lacing that stays till the end. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee, in particular espresso, dark chocolate, wood some herbs. Flavour is a little sweet with a moderate bitterness that has a long finish and an aftertaste a little like grass. Almost no carbonation and fairly thin bodied. Easily drinkable.

Estebanik (365) - Lublin, POLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Bardzo bujna piana, beżowa piana. Szkoda, że znika tak szybko. Aromat z butelki bardzo intensywnie palony, aż zahacza o wędzonkę. Ze szkła nie jest już tak mocny + dochodzi lekki aromat zepsutego mleka. W smaku palone, kawowe. Dość pełne, nie tak wodniste jak niektóre stouty. Średnie na jeża.

esox (1214) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2015
Bottled. Black beer, lacy tan head. Mild aroma has grains, slightly nutty toast, some milk chocolate and some heavier roasty notes. Minor fruitiness. Malty flavor has sweetish bread notes, chocolate and coffeyish acidity. Narrow hop bite in the finish. Well balanced. Medium body, silky texture.

Nekronos (3849) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 6, 2015
Quite good and refreshing in a warm place. Better for cold weather and nice in shape being thick and stout.

Bottle at the hotel, Reykjavik. Aroma of dark malt, some chocolate, cacao, hint of roast, some cream, coffee. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Pleasant body, bit creamy again. Smooth one.

asimeow (234) - Sandsli, NORWAY - JUL 22, 2015
0,33l bottle from Iceland (from Eva). Bottled 24.4.15. BBD 24.4.17. Black with medium caramel head. Metallic and licorice aroma. The coffee flavour is mild. I’m getting more licorice and metal. Astringent and nice, mild and easy to drink. A pleasant stout.

mmargarucci (201) - Basel, SWITZERLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Pours pitch black with no head. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Taste is similar, not overly complex with a lingering taste of chocolate covered coffee beans. Carbonation is slightly off leaving a weird palate feel. Other than that a great beer for an Icelandic evening.

mcberko (10577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
330mL bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Nose is earthy, with toasted malt and roasted barley. Flavour is quite earthy, bringing out toasted malt, earthy notes and no hops. Not overly complex but well-balanced. Decent stuff.
