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 (1342) - 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!

fiulijn (15360) - 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.

Ernest (6354) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle from Vinbudin in Reykjanesbaer (BB Oct 2015). Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted/burnt grain, coffee, bitter chocolate, Oreo cookie), lightly hoppy (herbs, grapefruit). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. All righty, now we’re talking...this is quite solid and very drinkable. Energetic aroma that’s got a little more malt depth than your basic stout. Good finishing bitterness and enough malt sugars leftover to provide a pretty rich drinking experience for its size. Good stuff.
