COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Finally tried this and it was a treat for sure. Like a BBQ in your mouth. Dark black and oozing smoke. I’ve had other smoked beers but this stuff was great. "None smokier".

Brilliant smoked aroma, bit of smoked lamb, black liquorice taste is quite robust, and burned caramel. Ideal for us raised on Egils Maltextract.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter a darkest black brown with almost no head. Aroma is smoked cocoa. Flavor is beautifully smoked without that queer BANDAID flavor so many smoked brews create. Malty smooth. Balanced beautifully. My first brew from Iceland and quite impressed. So picking up another bottle!!!!

Fabulous beer! Poured at a good temperature with massive light brown head that settled after a bit and some lace. Color is (apparently) a clear, dark, almost, black ruby red. Aroma is malt, roast, smoke, vanilla. Flavor’s like nose, with a subdued but very good balance between sweet, bitter, and carbonic tang. Also cocoa; smoke is there but very complimentary. Body is soft, full, lush, round with carbonation just right. Finish is surprisingly of average length despite the bold style of beer, making this exceedingly drinkable; slight booziness.

Pitch black, small tan head. Aroma is a heavy smoky, wood. Full bodied and malty, taste of chocolate, smoked meat on the finish. Not very bitter for an imperial stout, and the mouthfeel is fantastic. If you like them dark and smokey pick this up.

Suitsutatud Imp Stout on suurepärane õlle juba enda liigilt ning Lava ei valmista siinkohal ka pettumust. Lõhn on mõnus kerge suitsune ja leivane. Maitse on mõnusalt tugev leivane ja natukene šokolaadiselt magus, millele järgnebki suitsune, kergel vorstine maitse. Kerge humala mekk on nagu värske kaseviha lõhn saunas. Kokku annab super tulemuse - ainukene põhjus, miks ma 20st 19 andsin sellele õllele hindeks, on usk, et leidub veel parem õlle.

Extremely dark pour with a deep tan head. Slightly red in colour. Almost like a burgandy/black. Strong scent that was evident immediately upon pouring and filled the room. Strong smokey scent with some flowery tones. A fruit I can’t place as well. Very pleasant smelling. Thick smokey mouth. Boozy especially in the aftertaste. Low carbonation. Aftertaste lingers. Overall very pleasant spicy smokey beer that is just a touch too boozy. One of the best I have had in a while and thus far the best this year.

Rating 1500 and a new country tick to boot. Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with dark brown minimal head. Aroma of smoke with coffee and chocolate. Taste is light sweetish. Mostly smoke with some tobacco, dark chocolate and coffee. Full bodied with a somewhat slick texture. Lively carbonation and a very long, warming and smokey finish. Overall, awesome. I could drink this everyday.

I was introduced to this very smokey stout on vacation. That was a little while ago, but its what turned me on to stout. A wonderful slow drink, with a delicious smokey, smooth taste. Wish I could buy it at home, so I could add more notes on it, but I do recall it being exceptionally good.

A huge aroma, with lots of smoke and ash. Smells like a real volcano, but with dark chocolate and black malt. The flavor is very strong. Lots of dark chocolate, smoke and licorice. Finally, a hearty, yet not intrusive alcohol warmth. I am very impressed by this beer.
