A near perfect imperial stout. Bitter roasted malts meets smoke, ash, sweet chocolate and a strong alcohol finish, tickles the nose nicely. 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.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2012 Yummmy... this is great.. smokey, sweet, and has got everything a traveller will ask for.
Pours a no head ..yup , thats right.
Aroma: 75% hanged meat ...... 25% smooth chocolate mocca aroma.
Very pleasant taste .. at room temperature this brew is shining.
Beautiful malt/hops combo .. either is just pushing one another up.
An Icelandic treat. fiulijn (20491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2009
Bottle at Nya Tröls, MalmöJesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2010
Black color. Very nice aroma, roasted malt, creamy, smokey, light liquorice. Good body, caramel, chocolate and roasted malt, smooth, seducing. A touch of vanilla, liquirice, smoke. Excellent.
500mL bottle from the Lhykbo. Good job getting this one in! My 3rd Icelandic beer. Served at room temp to fully appreciate the flavours and aromas. Totally opaque brown with a brown head. Aroma is solid, nice dark fruity bouqet and chocolate malt. Flavour starts off with mild fruit esters, followed by sweet rich chocolate. Very tasty. Finishes slightly dry with just a hint of smoke, and nice warming booze. Goes down dangerously easy. Mouth-feel is full and satisfying with just a mild burning sensation, matched quite well with some subtle creamyness. The smoke is really well integrated, not astringent and I really appreciate that it’s not ashy in the aftertaste. This is a really ideal winter beer, extemely well done.

Bottle at The Bishops Arms Folkungagatan, great recommendation from staff. Very dark brown, small brown head. Aroma of French roast coffee. Taste is dark cocoa with a burnt edge. Subtle and complex. Great stuff. northropfrye (3593) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2011 Bottle. This is an incredibly complex beer. Very smoky aroma and flavour, with sweet and chocolately notes as well. One of my favourites. thorongil2 (3071) - , Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2011
(bottle) very dark clear brown with small dark brown head; aromas of coffee, chocolate, smoked fruit; intense balanced flavour; full body; lack of excessive smokiness or sweetness common in the type, very good Marheb (5749) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Les notes de fumées sont profondes sans être envahissantes. L’assaut du chocolat noir en bouche est impressionnant et s’harmonise avec délicatesse. Très impressionné par tout ce qu’elle m’offre en ce moment.
