Dashimus (258) - London, Greater London, - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from Myvatn Nature Baths, Iceland. Pours black with a thin tan head that fades extremely quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, vanilla, dark chocolate and strong coffee. Flavour is moderate sweetness but a low bitterness. Surprisingly carbonated and thin bodied. Most of the darker beers in Iceland seem to over load on the malt. This on manages to balance it nicely.

dinkle50 (1585) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2018
Really deep dark red pour, almost black with a single finger, tan colored head. Aroma of raisins and dark fruit, plus a little copper. Lace present right away. Light to medium bodied. Taste has some chocolate notes, a little toffee and caramel. Finish if kind of like coffee, but is also a little coppery. Too much dark malt for my liking.
