Flaska @Vinbarinn, Reykjavik. Cappuccinofärgat skum, nästan svart öl. Upp från den stiger underbara dofter av rågbröd, mörk choklad och röda bär. Smaken är inte på nåt vis sämre: choklad, kaffe, vanilj och lakrits. Fast så mycket rökighet hittade jag inte. God, väldigt god! tricyclist (1125) - Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2012
Sample pour into snifter. Deep dark pour with a full finger tan head. Aroma is sweet hickory, rich and roasted malts. BBQ! Sweet rich wood. Flavor follows, sweet smokiness, smooth malt, little to no sweetness from malt, heavy and full flavored. Definitely enjoyable. JohnnyJ (5571) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Draft at Stone Bistro. Dark brown pour, thin light tan head. Roasted malt, sweet chocolate, smoked bacon, campfire smoke, and coffee. Nice smooth medium to full body. I really enjoyed it. gripweed57 (2980) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2012
16.9 ounce bottle. Jet black liquid topped by a thick rocky tan head. Smoky roasted malt aroma reminiscent of sitting around a campfire. Rich espresso flavor is intense and smoky. Lots of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, tobacco, black licorice and smoked meat. An underying bitterness balances the smoky sweet malt. Full bodied, slightly sticky treacle aftertaste with resiny hops. Did I mention the smokiness? A tremendous brew! johnbuck100 (306) - Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Hoo-weee! Lava indeed. This is one of THE smokiest heavy-duty machine-oil stouts I have ever had. Really nice pour. Lots of Chocolate, some cigarettes, coffee, abv very well covered. Great for a cold winter night, be it in Iceland, Pennsylvania, or anywhere cold and rainy.

Pours a black body with a cream, billowing light chocolate head. Even though poured from a bottle, this one looked nitrogenated. Highly smoky, with a definite smoked meat character that is experienced in the flavor as well. Hearty, robust body, with nuances of black patent. Salty, smoky finish with some dried meat on the palate. obguthr (6833) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bacony smoke aroma. Black, thin yellow head. Lightly sweet malt. Smoke surges in at midpalate, Creosote and ash finish. Syrupy. Bricktop86 (937) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pours black with minimal head. Aroma of smoke and some chocolate.. Flavor follows aroma. Fatehunter (2641) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 29, 2012
In a Delirium glass. Pitch black color with almost a finger of tan head. Looks great.
Strong chocolate smell with roasted malt in the background. Hint of burnt wood.
Silky/creamy texture. Burnt taste, roasted malt, chocolate and burnt again. Tasty.
Low carbonation and a heavier body.
Outstanding, a pleasure to have. odinstyr (807) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Pours a dark brown with a minimal tan head. Smells of woodsmoke, chocolate, nuts, syrupy glaze. Taste is smoky, sweet, and bitter - chocolate, bacon, moderate hops. An excellent combination of smoked and stout styles.
