Myrkvi er Porter öl, sem er sérstök tegund sem sprottin er af skuggalegum strćtum Lundúnaborgar á 18. öld. Dökki liturinn rćđst af ristađa maltađa bygginu sem notađ er viđ bruggunina. Myrkvi er trúr uppruna sínum, enda ósíađur og skilar dimmu og djúpu bragđinu međ fullum ţunga og ţéttri fyllingu.

Dashimus (226) - London, Greater London, - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle from Vinbud in Reykjavik. Pours dark brown with a thick, firm caramel tan head which fades quickly and leaves a small amount of lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark chocolate and some coffee and wood. Flavour is moderate sweet and bitterness and lively carbonation which ends in a long finish.

Foxbush (1504) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2015
330 ml bottle at the Icelandair Hotel in Akureyri The porter poured a dark brown- black with tan frothy head and some lacing. Burnt malt greets you. The taste of roasted malts, chocolate and toffee add to the complexity. The porter has a medium body and soft carbonation. The clean smooth finish had you wanting more.

mcberko (9754) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
330 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Nose brings out notes of toasted coconut, light cocoa and a little vanilla. Flavour matches, with notes of cocoa and light vanilla. Pretty full-flavoured for a light porter. Balanced and highly drinkable. Very good.
