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.

JDBaker11058 (2220) - Maryland, USA - JAN 10, 2015
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.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2015
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.

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.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Near black in colour, thin beige head, light lacing. The aroma is very smoky, lots of dark chocolate, coffee, mocha, lots of burnt malts. The flavour is very roasty, lots of smoke, sweet, liquorice, chocolate and coffee. Burnt mouthfeel, medium body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, roasty and burnt, smoky. Pretty big on flavour, packs a lots of smoke in this.

TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours black like oil with khaki head. Smells of roasted malt, smoked malt, and some raw cocoa; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more smoke.

4.3
esox (1225) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Fresh bottle exported, got it as a gift (thx Nelli). Pitch black beer with lacy beige head. Intense aroma deep and rich beachwood-smoke, smoked ham, strong and sweet/worty basemalt, a hint of roasted bread, chocolate, slightly fermented plums, a hint of vanilla and quite strong herbal hoppiness. Just a hint of licoricy alcohol. Loads of sweetish malt flavor, a hint charcoal-roast, firm and clean bitterness. Amazingly soft, pudding-like chocolate in the finish mixing with intense but soft smokiness, perfectly balanced woody and slightly herbal bitterness and the necessary alcoholic warmth. Full bodied, slightly oily and velvety smooth texture. It’s all about balancing all the diverse components and this beer nails it! Seriously good stuff it is.

DYCSoccer17 (3698) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 30, 2014
12 oz sample on tap at Holsteins in the Cosmopolitan in Vegas. The aroma has some anise and licorice present. Light roast and medium sweetness present. Opaque black body with a small to medium dark brown head. Starts with a little cardboard and sherry with oxidation. Becomes a little roasted in the middle along with a little unsweetened chocolate. Finishes quite dry, and rather woody.
