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.

Reimer96 (1443) - 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!
