Lava Smoked Imperial Stout brewed by Ölvisholt Brugghús - Iceland    

Lava is a Smoked Russian Imperial Stout with a full, pitch-black body and a dense brown head, Lava scored a 99 on Ratebeer. It is richly flavored with notes of dark chocolate, rummy plum, roasted malt, espresso, and lactose, with birch smoke in the finish. Lava is highly sought after by Scandinavian beer geeks - taste it and you will understand why. Lava is available in in 30L keg and 50 cl bottle formats. 

Beer Review from Beer Advocate
Appearance - Dark black with nice 1 inch creamy, foamy head, and plenty of lacing.

Smell - Smoke, dark roasted malts, cocoa, chocolate, molassess, honey, brown sugars. Plum, rasin, some cherry. Smells really nice.

Taste - Starts off very smokey, with a nice sweet, fruit and sugar sweetness. Lots of roasted malts, cherry, honey, brown sugar and molassess. Very smooth, balanced and almost no alcohol present. Roasted malts add a nutty taste to the smoke. Finish has a little alcohol and a chocolate note.

Mouthfeel - Malts, sugars and smoke coat tounge with mild, yet bold flavors. Palate gets more of the same, along with some chocolate and a little alcohol. Aftertaste is smokey, malty and chocolate.

Overall - Excellent, balanced, flavorful, and really smooth and easy to drink for being 9.4%. Its sweet yet not over the top, malty and smokey, yet not overboard. Second only to alaskan smoked porter as my favorite smoked style beer. World class, try this one.
