COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Í desember 2008 fór svo fyrsta sending til Svíþjóðar en hún fer á markað á völdum stöðum í byrjun árs 2009. Þar eru á ferðinni þeir kumpánar Skjálfti og Móri en einnig hinn stórbrotni Lava sem er engum líkur. Hann er dekkri en nýstorknað hekluhraun, 9,4% að styrkleika og inniheldur 70% reykt malt sem skilar sér vel í eftirbragði. Þessar vörur munu verða fáanlegar í sænska ríkinu (Systembolaget) og á völdum börum og veitingastöðum.

Smoked imperial stout with a thick brown head. Sweet with chocolate and roasted malt in the flavour. The aftertaste is roasted malt, smoke and warming alcohol. Aroma of smoke chocolate and a bit of alcohol.

$9 for 12oz at Vinbudden. As Iceland goes, this is as good a deal as they come. Near-zero head, but what's there is elegant and clean. Pitch black beer. Smells heavily of alcohol, otherwise roasty and some nuts. Pretty great palate honestly, full body, creamy. Taste is mildly sweet, fairly bitter, a bit of unami. Hints of chocolate, but really not too strong, definitely a bit of smoke in there but it's reasonably subtle.

750ml bottle...kept cold and pumped for two days after opening, so the carbonation had faded at this point. This is definitely a skewed rate..more of a journal entry than the hyper-accurate numerical score generally attributed. Deep, thick malts, really nice in that regard. Big smoke tones sort of meld with the alcohol tones and gets a little intense, but I love the real malt tones, as opposed to fake me out sugary American Stouts of late. Really enjoyable, well made stuff. Makes me wonder what a glass would go for in Iceland. Solid.

16.9 oz. bottle, consumed on 2-6-18. Pours a reddish, medium to dark brown with a small amount of short-lasting, beige head. Lack of head does the appearance no favors. Sweet, cherry-like aroma. Caramel and prune scents. English yeast smell. Light to moderate smokiness in the aroma. A metallic whiff. I like the aroma increasingly upon multiple sniffs. Dry, smoky flavor. Much drier in taste than it smells, thankfully. Dry raisin. Medium body, light for the ABV. Almost scratchy in the throat, somehow. A tad undercarbonated, it seems, but still some liveliness. A surprisingly simple beer but an adequately enjoyable one. I’m a big fan of both smoked beers and imperial stouts, and this is both, so the fact that I only moderately like it isn’t a great sign, but, then again, I do indeed like it. I was hoping for more and better. Blander than it should be. I’m being hard on it because it should be better than it is, but it is pretty good. 7.3.8.3.14=>3.5

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 Bottle from notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have chocolate, smoked malts, earthy, some dark fruit, good smoked beer.

Czarne nieprzezroczyste piwo z średniej wielkości pianą. Aromat lekko dymionych słodow, nuty palone, pieczona skórka chleba. W smaku nuty dymionych słodow, nuty palone, trochę kawy i gorzkiej czekolady. Dobre piwo dymione

Aroma carries light hint of maltiness behind the smoke. Pours dark and evenly with slight head. Smokiness immediately transitions to sweet malt flavor. Faint hoppiness in aftertaste. Drinkable beer, but for sipping.

Almost black, no head. Aroma has lots of smoke, some alcohol. Taste is smoke, alcohol, malt, some dark fruits. Medium sweet, medium bitterness, mostly from alcohol. Not so exited of this beer, Iceland has some better stouts.

Suitsutatud Imp Stout on suurepärane õlle juba enda liigilt ning Lava ei valmista siinkohal ka pettumust. Lõhn on mõnus kerge suitsune ja leivane. Maitse on mõnusalt tugev leivane ja natukene šokolaadiselt magus, millele järgnebki suitsune, kergel vorstine maitse. Kerge humala mekk on nagu värske kaseviha lõhn saunas. Kokku annab super tulemuse - ainukene põhjus, miks ma 20st 19 andsin sellele õllele hindeks, on usk, et leidub veel parem õlle.

dmctaster (108) - Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate malts, roasted malts, and smoke (as listed on the label). Taste is dark chocolate and smoke to keep it from being heavy. Everything as advertised.

Beer shared at RBAG 2017. Thanks me. Aroma is toasted malt. caramel, and dark malt. Taste is boozy rye, smoked malt and stuff.
