My opinion on a variety of beers.

Lava

Iceland is famous for it’s volcano that blanketed Europe with ash. It’s also known for geothermal energy. Lava aside from what flows from a volcano is a Smoked Imperial Stout from the Ölvisholt Brugghús of Iceland. This is my second Icelandic Beer. This beer pours thick and very dark, cola-like in colour, even the head has that dark brown tinge. As for the beer, an almost chocolaty taste, but too bitter. Couldn’t really taste the smoke they promised me, unlike a German smoked beer where you can even smell the smoke, as stouts go this one is kind of average, maybe a little below. Not cheap either. I wouldn’t really recommend trying one unless you just have to try a Smoked Imperial Stout from the land of first names.
