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.

Dashimus (225) - 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.

Reimer96 (1411) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Pours an almost opaque black with a small brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, espresso and roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate and bitter roasted malts. Nice dry finish with a medium light body but a complexity of flavors. Carbonation is a bit too high in this beer and something more to give it a bit more body or a slick mouthfeel would make this wonderful stout great!

fiulijn (15410) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Draught at Stofan, Reykjavik, apparently 6.5% ABV
Black color with generous head. Light aroma of roasted malt, metallic. Smooth mouthfeel; plain roasted malt flavor, not ashy, with a light lactose touch that contributes to the balance; correct bitterness; but the final is metallic.
Monodimensional, not bad but plain.
