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.

Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. As Viking Stout. Pours mahogany with a frothy cream head. Light coffee aroma. The taste is coffee and chocolate with liquorice and burnt toast in the finish. Quite light bodied, but tasty and good.

Estebanik (624) - Lublin, POLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Bardzo bujna piana, beżowa piana. Szkoda, że znika tak szybko. Aromat z butelki bardzo intensywnie palony, aż zahacza o wędzonkę. Ze szkła nie jest już tak mocny + dochodzi lekki aromat zepsutego mleka. W smaku palone, kawowe. Dość pełne, nie tak wodniste jak niektóre stouty. Średnie na jeża.

Bottled. Black beer, lacy tan head. Mild aroma has grains, slightly nutty toast, some milk chocolate and some heavier roasty notes. Minor fruitiness. Malty flavor has sweetish bread notes, chocolate and coffeyish acidity. Narrow hop bite in the finish. Well balanced. Medium body, silky texture.

Quite good and refreshing in a warm place. Better for cold weather and nice in shape being thick and stout.

asimeow (253) - 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.
