I had this on tap while in Iceland and liked it so much I decided to bring a few bottles back. It didn’t seem as smokey from the bottle which was a downside, but still solid. nathan30533 (1022) - Clifton, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2015
This is just truly not my style. Smokey brew. Too much smokey and if it were mine I would probable age and as it to settle. blackflag321 (705) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Shared bomber, snifters. Nice smoke character and doesn’t not dominate the flavor. Smooth and creamy under the smoke. High ABV doesn’t show. visionthing (5600) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 16, 2015
33cl bottle from Vinbudin, Reykjavik. Pours completely black with a small, beige head. Smoky and heavy malty with dark fruits, dark, bitter chocolate, hints of coffee. Fairly sweet, but very well balanced and very flavourful. Very dominated by bacon-like smokiness in the beginning, but balances out after some more temperature. Oooh! Delicious!

On bottle with Visionthing , thanks a lot! Pitch black color, ok foam . High aroma intensity; smoked bacon, roasted aromas, some licorice & coffee. Medium body & complexity. Some sweetness, ok bitterness. Enjoyable- but quite special.

Appearance: viscous, inky black, with a creamy dark tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma: definite smoke notes, but scads of chocolate, roasty coffee, light soy sauce, and vanilla. Taste: dark bittersweet chocolate, creamy cappuccino, roast coffee beans, vanilla, sea salt, black licorice, charred wood, and smoky peat. Finish: lingering bittersweet chocolate and smooth, smoky roasted malts. Notes: Wow, this was amazing. Smooth, rich, and delicious. The smokiness was clearly evident, but not overpowering, and there was a bit of umami saltiness that added a really intersting extra dimension. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club, laid down two years.

Pours a very dark brown with only a little light coming through the edges and a small-medium sized light brown head and a lot of tiny spots of lace. Aroma is smoke/peat, anise, roasted malts, cocoa, coffee notes and a little sweetness on the end. Flavour is anise, smoke/peat, roasted malt, coffee, cocoa, chocolate, mild bitterness, fairly dry and some burnt notes. Fairly easy to drink, well done on such a smooth but complex beer.

UPDATED: JAN 21, 2015 Pours an opaque black with a nice brown head that leaves spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of peat, smoke, campfire, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is roasted malts, campfire, peat, sweet dark chocolate and bitter cocoa. Nicely balanced beer with a medium high carbonation and body which the smoked malts give a bit of a misperception on how big the beer actually is. Great balance overall. spacecube (1810) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
330ml bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma has lots of roast caramel malt, chocolate, plenty of big smoke character, bacon. Good balance of flavours. Full bodied, oily texture, with fine carbonation. Good and strong. Rammer (397) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 28, 2014
