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.

BillKismet (4057) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 7, 2012
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.

Bacony smoke aroma. Black, thin yellow head. Lightly sweet malt. Smoke surges in at midpalate, Creosote and ash finish. Syrupy.

Fatehunter (2567) - 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 (796) - 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.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - SEP 26, 2012
500ml bottle at the Flying Saucer in Little Rock, AR. Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is phenolic, peaty, and ashy with a few dark fruit notes, a light roast, and some dark chocolates. Flavor is better. Plenty of dark chocolates with a touch of milky sweetness, lots of peat giving off a moderate smokiness, a medium roast, a light dark fruit, a touch of phenol, and a light earthy note. Finishes nicely dry with a pleasant bittersweetness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid smoked impy. The smokiness is a bit too peaty at times, but this has a nice roast, chocolate sweetness, and dry finish. Nothing special, but enjoyable.

wxman (1819) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2012
On tap at Global brew. Pours an opaque black with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee and dark fruit. Taste is prunes, raisins, coffee and dark chocolate. Dry, crisp mouthfeel. Excellent!

3.5
Natai (124) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Pours a dark brown that’s nearly black with a frothy tan head. Strong smokey aroma with hints of malt and spice. Flavors of smoke and malt that’s reminiscent of Stone’s Chipotle Porter. Smooth finish with no alcohol flavor.

3.8
Scipio (1079) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Pours a very deep brown, almost black, with dark tan head, Aroma contains strong woody, smoky impressions with some dark fruity notes. Although the smokiness is potent in the taste as well, there is a good deal of chocolate flavors to balance it nicely. Very roasted in the taste, with a smoke aftertaste. Somewhat bitter as well. Medium bodied with a chewy texture and a good amount of carbonation. The high alcohol content hides itself well and isn’t really noticed. This one isn’t as extreme as some in this style. But it still contains enough smokiness for those that like that to be happy.

3.2
FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 12, 2012
From the September 2012 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 16 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a large foamy brown head that left decent lacing. The aroma was ashtray and bacon - almost bacon cigarette. The flavor was bacon, roasty malts, smoked malts, tobacco and wood. Long finish of bacon, smoke and soot. Moderately full bodied. Very odd but interesting.
