COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
With clear notes of espresso, dark chocolate and a hint of authentic Icelandic coffee, this Porter is dark and rich, offering a medium body that is robust, yet smooth on the palate and easy to drink. There’s no need to be afraid of the dark anymore.

Saeglopur (366) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle from Ammersin 5, Vienna.
Dark brown, almost black body, with a medium, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, smoke, wood, toast, some dark fruits.
Taste is about the same, also slight fruity hop notes.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with just the right amount of carbonation and it finishes roasty, a bit smoky and with slight dark fruits.

Very good! Full, dark, roasty, with some pleasant smoke notes and still pretty easy to drink. A top notch, greatly balanced Porter how I like it!

330 ml bottle thanks to Knä (non-ratebeer), sampled on October 20, 2014. BB 27 AUG 16, bottled 27.08.14.
Clear very dark brown to black color, smallish dark brown head. Roasted, sassafras, chewing gum, toothpaste, minty, spearmint, grainy, sweet scent, pleasant. Malty, sweet, roasted, light minty, coffee, grainy, charcoal taste. Roasted, grainy, dry aftertaste. Medium to smooth mouthfeel, medium high dry bitterness. Smells a bit of alcohol as well. A bit young, could likely gain from some age to mellow out more.

N3lson1 (216) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Drank out of a pint poured from a twelve ounce bottle and straight out of the bottle as well. Amazing notes of coffee, malts, and unfortunately over powering aromas of toastiness. Otherwise, looks like a nice dark porter and the taste goes along with the aromas, would have rated higher if not for the overpowering flavor of roasted malts(which I usually love).I’m excited to try other offerings by Einstök!

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle. It’s a dark brown to black beer with a dense, finger-thick dark beige head. The aroma is toasted and faintly bonfire-ish, with burnt malts and some coffee. The flavor too is roasted and chocolatey, with some coffee grit and a touch of dark bitter chocoolate, very soft on the palate. Medium to full body. Lasting roasted finish with dark chocolate, some bonfire and dark chocolate. Too one dimensional this one, but nice anyway. 141018

Reimer96 (1273) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Pours a clear dark brown with a bubbly light brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts & espresso beans. Taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso and contains a nice bitter coffee on the finish. Finish is dry and slightly over carbonated but overall this porter is medium body and rich on flavor and well balanced... Lower the carbonation and this is a 4.5 point beer.
