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.

mmargarucci (161) - 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.
