Ţar eru á ferđinni ţeir kumpánar Skjálfti og Móri en einnig hinn stórbrotni Lava sem er engum líkur.

Oakes (17158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012
Very dark with a thin head. The aroma is smoky...a different type of smoke with some chocolate character as well. Rich smoke with lots of chocolate that blends well with the smoke. An intense imperial porter with a fairly rich smoke character, this is fun stuff. Iceland has come a long way from the days of Viking Lager.

Bottle. It pours a black body under a dense, finger-thick tan head, looking really gorgeous. There’s some smoked notes in the aorma, almost like a blend of smoked fish and bacon, but in a nice way. Burnt malts, peat, some alcohol and sweetness as well. The flavor is rather sweet, with roasted, peaty malts and a faint note of vanilla. Full-bodied and pleasantly warming. Long finish with sweetness, burnt malts and a little vanilla. There’s some dms as well in the beer, but just a tiny touch of it, else it’s a quite wonderful one, sure didn’t expect this from Iceland a year ago. 090720
