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.

fiulijn (19385) - 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.

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. Itĺs 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

Dark brown, rich meaty aroma, toffeeish, slightly burnt and earthy. Pretty good, actually.
