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.

Las notas ahumadas son intensas. Posteriormente se pueden percibir el café, chocolate, madera y notas a caramelo Su color es negro, cuerpo redondo, carbonatacion baja, corona de espuma abundante de media retención. En boca es ahumada, torrefacta y ligeramente dulce. Al paladar es algo compleja y a la vez equilibrada. Después de las notas ahumadas, se percibe chocolate, café, madera y caramelo. En resumen creo que es una cerveza muy bien elaborada y que se disfruta bastante.

Gluepot (640) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 18, 2016
On tap at the ChurchKey, DC. A thin light tan head on a near black body. A big rich nose with smoke, ripe berries, a touch of cream caramel and booze. The smoked malt leads the taste profile, with toffee, some bitter coffee, dark berries and that boozy warmth. A very dense rich body. Taste thins out relatively quickly though.

Poured deep dark brown with a tight beige head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and roast malt. Full. Smooth body, flavour as the aroma, add some alcohol soaked raisins; lovely balance.

Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. Pours pitch black with a thin beige head. Nice peat and bacon smoke aroma. The taste has moderate spice with plenty of earthy peat and smoke. Some bacon too and a hint of coffee. Rich and tasty.

This is an insanely smokey beer, far more than I can tolerate. I like Alaskan Smoked, I’m a fan of most smoked beers, but this is far too aggressive. Tried with Jess at Max and Joes in Omaha’s beer week.

Bill Becker (1042) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Pours a pitch black with an inch of tannish foam. Smells smokey as hell with side notes of bitter chocolate and coffee. Smokey, lots of roasted malt, bitter (dark) chocolate, toffee, not much of a coffee flavour. Pretty boozy. Full bodied imho but superbly smooth on my palate. Like a bumped up Alaskan Smoked Porter. I suppose that explains my love for it.

Completely black with no head. Complex tastes smoke, chocolate, coffee, chili and oak. Heavy-medium body, smooth carbonation, and a finish of smoky chocolate. Not too much smoke, but tastes like it has been aged

3.5
vami (455) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 16, 2016
Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, soy sauce and smoke - a bit of burnt plastic? Smooth and roasted mouth with a slight alcoholic burn. Smoked notes are there but not overwhelming. Not too full-bodied for an imperial stout. Coffee overtones.
