A - Pours an oil black with a short, tan colored head.
S - Roasted malts with chocolate, very inviting.
T - Picking up more of the chocolate with some hints of coffee and smoke.
M - Medium bodied with light carbonation.
A really good beer. The flavors are complex and I kept picking up different nuances along the way.

My first beer from Iceland...very nice. Pours a totally dense brown color with no light getting through...takes a hard pour, but you get a medium size brown (ten fidy colored) brown head. Some lacing and average head retention for such a strong beer.
Smell is excellent, smoky roasted malts and some chocolate. very pleasant. Taste is similar. The smokiness is prominent but not overpowering. Flavor is more of the same. Big smoky malty flavor, some chocolate and a little bit of bitterness in the finish. The smokiness is not overpowering. Just blends in with the other flavors.
Mouthfeel is rich and fairly smooth. There is a very slight bit of alcohol harshness, but not much. Goes down real easy.
An outstanding strong stout.
