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.

Bottle shared by Bman. Rating #194. Thick black with a tan head. Hard to describe the aroma, kind of spicy and a little smokey at the same time. Nice flavor, light smoke and dark fruits. (2287)

16.9 ounce bottle. Jet black liquid topped by a thick rocky tan head. Smoky roasted malt aroma reminiscent of sitting around a campfire. Rich espresso flavor is intense and smoky. Lots of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, tobacco, black licorice and smoked meat. An underying bitterness balances the smoky sweet malt. Full bodied, slightly sticky treacle aftertaste with resiny hops. Did I mention the smokiness? A tremendous brew!

Black pour, tan head, good lacing and retention. Aroma is smoked malt with notes of roast, coffee, chocolate, touch of darker fruit. Medium to full body, smokey flavor with some bitter coffee in the finish. Really nice.

Bottle that was opened with some excitement... First thing I notice is a fizzy head that makes me worry a bit... Way too much and way too fizzy for an imperial stout. Doesn’t smell infected, though, so I charge on. It’s about two thirds of the glass fizz when after the pour, but aromas are yummy... Just a hint of smoke, but loads of dark fruit and burnt sugar. Flavor is fruit heavy... Prunes, black cherries, and such... With a bit of smoke on the tail end. Pretty decent, maybe a little thin for an imperial stout, but I’d take another... If I could afford it...

Ugh. Not for me this one. Up front hit with lively carbonation, and toasted malts, some coffee, maybe a hint of licorice. Middle and back are overwhelming smoke. Bitter smokey aftertaste feels like it’ll last in my mouth all week. Just not my thing I guess. Lots of carbonation. Pours very dark with this bubbly head that dissipates quickly.

radiomgb (2838) - 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.

kevinator (2716) - The Colony, Texas, USA - APR 27, 2014
This is a rich beer. Hints of smoke and roasted wood. Very dark and thick appearance. Full and weighty palate but does not bloat. Great mix of flavors with natural smoke up front but in a spicy way that compliments without dominating everything else. Roasted malts and wood flavors. Hop character was low. Complex and nice.

Had on tap at Max's in Baltimore. Pours dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma is smoke and roast flavor is chocolate and roast and lots of smoke. Works well. This is a nice beer. A bit sweet on the finish. Alcohol warms. Medium bodied.

ucusty (2693) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Thanks to Jason for sharing this one. Dark brown pour with a thick chestnut colored head. Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, roast and meat. Flavor follows suite. More smokey as it warms
