Dashimus (225) - 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.

Zarkam (486) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2015
330ml bottle, black colour, small frothy mostly vanishing tan head, good lacing. Heavily malty and roasty aroma of coffee, chocolate and plums with moderate sprucey and herbal hops in the background. Taste is initally moderately sweet, slightly sour in the midle and has a longish moderately bitter finish with a burnt feel. Medium to full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Fairly good porter though not particularly unique, body could be a bit fuller.

Pours an opaque black with a small brown head that leaves little lace. Aroma. Aroma of roasted malts, cocoa, chocolate, coffee and espresso beans. Taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso and has a nice dry finish. Carbonation is a bit high and gives a touch of acidity otherwise a great porter!

Aroma is a bit musty with chocolate, hay, some licorice, hints of ash and coffee. Flavour is sweet with vanilla and cocoa, Finishes with coffee and ash. Feels quite hoppy with some grapefruit tones at the middle of the glass. A bit too ashy but nice still.

fiulijn (15378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle from Vínbúđin
Black color with generous brownish head. The aroma is modern, combining coffeeish malts and C-hops; some bread. The mouthfeel is quite dry, the body is lean; the roasted malts assume just a small character of coffee; strong bitterness, with hidden hop resins in the final; impression of lactose.
A good beer.
