Pours black with a moderate amount of foam. Roasty oily appearance and smell. Initially it seems to hit the style, but hits burnt parts and then not drinkable.Ratheraverage mouthfeel for this style.Thanks Pino. rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2011
Bouteille de 33cl. Bue lors de la soirée Islande avec Patrick, Boul, Pier-Luc et Julien. Bière brune foncée avec une mousse brune. Le nez est fumé et rôtie. La bouche est agréable avec des notes rôties, des grains grillés, elle a une texture aqueuse. La fin de bouche est bien rôtie. JulienHuxley (5877) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
From bottle at SlovakSniper & Rodenbach99 Iceland super tasting, merci beaucoup Yan, Yan et Pat! Black pour with a whitish head. Slightly roasty, meaty and smoky aroma, very baltic-porter like. Good roasty taste, kind of watery though - the palate really falls apart on this one. Still, drinkable. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
(Sample at rodenbach99 Iceland beer festival) Very dark brown liquid with a ring of foam. Nose is a bit off, some weak
roasted notes with chocolate and light coffee. Something like a schwarzbier. Mouth is about the same with small roasted pieces. Palate is on the medium side with a good carbonation and a watery texture. Aftertaste is very short with fantomatic roasted notes. Many thanks to Yan for bringing back this bottle from Iceland.
