3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, served with the dessert course at Frederik V, Reykjavik. Dark cola brown body, thin tan cap. Sweet caramel and bitter chocolate combine to form a moderately sweet dark brew, without any real roast character. Quite full bodied though, just lacking some complexity. Nice enough.

330ml bottle This was enjoyed at the Bistro in Reykjavik. The Baltic Porter poured a deep dark black with a full 1/2 inch tan head with lacing. Roasted malt greets with you with hints of chocolate and coffee. The medium body porter had average carbonation. This is fun drink, one of the best of the dark beers in Iceland. The finish has toasted malts and chocolate with no bitterness.
