3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330mL bottle, courtesy of haukur (thanks a lot), pours jet black with a small tan head. Nose is intense, with lots of dark fruits, roasted malt, and dry cocoa. Flavour follows through, with heavy dark fruits and roasted malt. A lot fruitier than I generally care for in an impie stout, but this is very tasteful. Great stuff.

Made by the same brewer who made Ölvisholt Lava. Surtur is more lighter and with probably higher drink-ability. Sound a bit strange. Good foamy head which lasts and the taste is a bit creamy with the oil and burnt tire one recognizes!

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2012 Black with brown head. Oily texture, roasted malt, hint of coffee, dark chocolate, little smoke, very complex but very very good. By far the best one ever brewed in Iceland.
