3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2012 033 bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsř sentrum. Deep brown body, almost black. Thin beige head. Aroma of coffee-caramel, roasted malts, licorice and soya beans. Roasty finish, with some smoke. Good, but not great. Rated with my good friend Alexander.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark brown with a nice light brown head that leaves good lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, coffee and espresso. Taste is roasted malts, cocoa, dark chocolate, coffee, light smoke and has a nice light bitterness. Surprisingly full bodied for being less than 6 percent. Wouldn’t call it a Baltic porter but definitely a robust porter.

Draught @ Řllets Dag 2014, Kolding. Pours cloudy nearly black with small tan head. Clear aroma of roasted malt, with notes of hops. Sweetish flavour of caramel malt, with notes of nuts and fruit, and hoppy touches. Bittersweet aftertaste with hints of liquorice. Warming alcohol presence. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Reykjavik. Not a great stout by any means. The roasting leaved a bitter aftertaste that does not sit very well with me.

4.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Very rich, flavorful stout. Complex. Not too creamy. In my opinion, this is one of the best stouts available in Iceland.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vínbúđin; unappealing label (a skull with hat and guitars; apparently bad taste is shared with the Danish)
Black color with generous beige head. Nice aroma, breadcrust, oven baked. Lean body, but smooth mouthfeel; plenty of roasted malts with a bready chewiness; strong bitterness; in the final there is an impression of campfire and ashes.
Very good beer; I’m interested to see what becomes if brewed at slightly higher gravity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nice glug glug balck pour, pretty thick looking. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee nuts and light hops. Taste, fairly carbonated, some roasted malts, thin mouth feel, light hops, fairly dry finish. Overall, a nice porter, it groundbreaking but good overall balance.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured deep dark brown with a dense tan head. Aroma of roast malt, muted dark fruit and chocolate. Medium to full body, flavour as the aroma, but a bit bland for the style.
