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.

Aurelius (5335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Smokehouse aroma was initially very aggressive, but breathing and warming improved the complexity. Aroma: Creosote, bacon, prunes, olives and molasses notes there. Sweet, smoky fruity with some parched soy and other roast. Alcohol fumes collectedd in a tulip glass if you don’t keep it moving. Appearance: Brown-black, opaque with a fine-grained tan head. Good bottle and label. Flavor! Wow, this was really nicely played. Up front, some mineral/salty qualities followed by bitter chocolate, roasted nuts, light smoke, stone fruit, lightly sweet. Warming. Finish has alcohol and cocoa bitterness and some pencil shavings. Mouthfeel alternated between being slippery and being chalky/cheesy. Like ceramic slip. Formidable. New Leaf Market (Holy Sticker Shock, Batman! There wasn’t a price tag, and I was a bit surprised to pay $10 for a continental pint outside of a bar.)

nearbeer (5414) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2017
750 ml. no bottling date. Ebony with an inch of sponge on a hard pour, settling to a thin creamy film. Aroma is smoke, toffee, cherry, soy and coffee. Tastes of sourish cherry/berry mix and caramel are quickly overtaken by some smoky/charred wood. Finish has soy, smoked beef, sour cream and molasses. Medium-heavy body has smooth medium carbonation and a nice balance.

4.1
JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Near black and looking opaque. Smaller dense tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and dark chocolate. Just a hint of toasted oak. Feel is rich, nearly a touch too heavy. Flavors start sweet and generally stay sweet. Dark fruit, mild herbal hops, and cocoa. A bit of alcohol spice. Roasted malt and ever so gentle toasted/smoky oak. A beer by the fire pit on the ski slope type brew.

mmahut (1859) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 13, 2017
Ďakujem Zuzka :) Pours in black oily body with medium brown head with short retention. Aroma has roasty profile upfirst and is followed by coffee, grainy sweetness, toasty, background chocolate. Taste has medium earthy bitterness with smokey sweetness with alcohol warmness in the after taste. Body is slick, full, oily texture, noticiable alcohol.

3.6
AleRider78 (1114) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Pours a large amount of foamy brownish head and has a pitch black appearance. Head leaves a very thin blanket over top. Good lacing. Aromas are of average intensity. Mostly roasted grainy malts, smokey, light coffee, resin hops. Can sort of feel the alcohol in this one, not too strong a taste but still apparent. Has a wood burnt smokey flavour with dark roasted malts, somewhat spicy, earthy hops. Yeasty as well, maybe even a tiny bit of brown sugar. Strong bitterness on the palate. Leaves a puckering warming sensation. medium carbonation, slightly excessive. Full bodied mouthfeel. Not too bad, could not drink more than this bottle though.
