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.

asimeow (224) - 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 (171) - 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.

Bottle. Pleasant dark appearance. Reasonable amount of body and easy to drink. Nothing exceptional but still a good one.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Black colour, moderate beige head. Dryish roasty aroma, hints of old leather and bacon. Dry and roasty flavour too, notes of bacon and smoke. Did not blow my socks off this one.
