Dashimus (218) - 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.

fiulijn (14294) - 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.

badhack (296) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Okay porter, characteristic with stout like tendencies. Malt, caramel, a little sweet. Dark brown in color. I remember some coffee and cocoa syrup, not a lot. Low hopped.

sic1314 (3045) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Poured deep dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of smokey malt, liquorice, milk chocolate and coffee. Medium body, flavour much as the aroma, heading towards a Baltic.

Marduk (2472) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2014
330ml bottle. Cloudy dark brown color. Small size, off-white head, stays. Roast, coffee beans, milky aroma. Nice coffee roast, sweet flavor. Long lasting coffee roast in aftertaste. Did I mention coffee? Highly drinkable.

suurjuust (961) - ESTONIA - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Very dark brown, brown head. Nose is stale coffee, roast. Flavor is smooth malt, some burned notes, wood, chocolate. Oily mouthfeel, almost like syrup. Straightforward stuff.

thirstyrabbit (1065) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 Bottle. Dark brown body, small beige head. Aroma has dry, somewhat stale coffee roast. Thick but smooth mouthfeel. Mildly ashy taste with some bitter cocoa and raw coffee beans. More similar to stouts than porters. I would say it resembles that one bottle of "Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast" that I tried to cellar: of course it didn’t go well - the aromatic coffee parts just turned stale and developed a bad kind of bitterness.

FatPhil (8996) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2014
330ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Rather nice stale coffe-grounds aroma. Very dark brown, small tight tan head. Nice fruity restronasals. Really deep roast, some burntness, more stale coffee in the taste. Palate very full and quite smooth, decent carbonation. Finish a bit dry, burntness becomes more astringent with the biting bitter hops reinforcing it. Might be slight overrate, as some sips weren’t up to much.

Aresh (20) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2014
Stale coffee aroma, black nondescript colour. Average but tasty enough with hint of alcohol.

martjoobolut (555) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 13.11.2015. Pours black with light brown head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is roast, coffee, nutty, and creamy. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, smoke, roast, and dark fruits. Finish is coffee bitter with light smoke. Overall: great brew.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Draft at Laundromat Cafe, Reykjavik. Very drak brown body with mahogany highlights. Rich aroma of dark malts and a touch of smoke. Hard roast and chocolate liqueur flavours, light ash. Very rich and full-bodied for the ABV. Excellent.
