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.

BlackHaddock (7961) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
8th May 2015: in a flight of six at the excellent Brewhouse, San Juan Capistrano, Orange County, A real surprise to see this and had to try it. Black body, tanned crown. Smoky and malty with a Sherry like richness tempered by a vanilla smoothness. This beer looked good and tasted even better: a real treat.

djd07 (16307) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Bottle thanks to Alex. Pours a very dark brown with small tan head that lasts. The aroma is strong smoke, pepper, and roast. Thin mouth, smoke bomb, roast, chocolate, lingering smoke, decent.

johndoughty (5600) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle. Icelands top rated beer and after a few mouthfuls I couls see why. Strong chocolate and coffee flavours merge to together.This beer is saying please notice me. I did and it was nice.

Hideipa (24) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Belle en apparence, elle laisse un petit col brunâtre d’où s’échappe un arôme torréfié et surtout fumé. En bouche, on ressent d’abord le côté sucré et liquoreux, auxquelles fait suite la torréfaction et faiblement, le fumé. Malheureusement, le sucre surpasse les autres saveurs. Moyennenement carbonaté, la finale est heureusement fumée, mais sans plus. Bref, le côté liquoreux diminu l’effet fumé de cette bière.

3.9
gunnar (9923) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 25, 2015
On tap at Micro Bar, Reykjavik. Pours almost pitch black with a tiny beige head. Inviting aroma of liquorice, ash,roast, smoke and chocolate. Smooth creamy and low viscosity mouthfeel. Taste is light smoked, heavy liquorice, wwonderful lingering aftertaste, good beer.

3.2
Slaktmasken (69) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
På flaska hos Flying barrel. Doftar rostad malt, rök och en del svavel. Även smaken har en del svaveltoner vilket inte tilltalade mig så mycket.

jackafholmes (1024) - - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle from a bistro near a waterfall in Iceland somewhere. Pours black with a red tint and a nice tan head like espresso. Aroma is strong coffee and liquorice, lots of smoke and some dark chocolate. Taste is slightly sour and quite bitter. Body is oily with medium carbonation. Bought it by accident and glad I did!

4.2
fdomig (1032) - München, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2015
330ml bottle in Reykjavík. Aroma is coffee, bacon. Appearance is black with a brown-ish, coffee like head. Taste is sweet and light sour. Amazing mouth feel. Espresso and soft carbonation combined to an impressive beer. Well done.
