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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
