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.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, - MAY 19, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This Smoked Imperial Stout generates grapes, peppery spiciness, banana purée and peat for a most elegant sipper licked by alcohol warmth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the darkness.
-Roastiness is light compared to the style average.
-The mouthfeel is cushy and not too heavy. This is a well leveled dessert.
-Sweetness is important, but not overdone in any way.
-Smoke appears as wooden and spicy in the nose, but then peaty in the finish.

Czarne nieprzezroczyste piwo z średniej wielkości pianą. Aromat lekko dymionych słodow, nuty palone, pieczona skórka chleba. W smaku nuty dymionych słodow, nuty palone, trochę kawy i gorzkiej czekolady. Dobre piwo dymione

Aroma carries light hint of maltiness behind the smoke. Pours dark and evenly with slight head. Smokiness immediately transitions to sweet malt flavor. Faint hoppiness in aftertaste. Drinkable beer, but for sipping.

Almost black, no head. Aroma has lots of smoke, some alcohol. Taste is smoke, alcohol, malt, some dark fruits. Medium sweet, medium bitterness, mostly from alcohol. Not so exited of this beer, Iceland has some better stouts.

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.

dmctaster (97) - Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2017 Black with tan head. Aroma of chocolate malts, roasted malts, and smoke (as listed on the label). Taste is dark chocolate and smoke to keep it from being heavy. Everything as advertised.

dfearnley (2314) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 16, 2017
Beer shared at RBAG 2017. Thanks me. Aroma is toasted malt. caramel, and dark malt. Taste is boozy rye, smoked malt and stuff.

Ferris (16491) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2017
Bottle - Dark cocoa and some light smoke. Jet black brown with a decent beige head. Cocoa and some light smoke with a long roasty bitter finish.

NordicV (2501) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2017
Faska, Inferno Lund. Svart öl med ett större brunt skum. Doft och smak är mjölksocker, choklad, rökighet, rökt korv, trä och rostad malt.

nearbeer (5601) - 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.

JPDIPSO (6286) - 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.
