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.

Wasn’t typical of a porter, although the roasted malt and toasted flavors came through nicely. Smooth, on the thin side, some chocolate and caramel and slightly sweet but not too much.

Bottle. Almost black with a strong sweet fruitcake aroma. Watery taste lets it down a tad, though I like the smokey cigar finish.

sulphursouls (42) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 2, 2014
I was looking forward to trying this Toasted Porter. Appearance was a wonderfully satisfying black, though the nose was only a weak combination of roasted malts and caramel. A very different story on the palate which was silky and creamy. There was a clean sourish flavour which finished nicely with robust malts, which thanks to the good carbonation was very easy to drink.

PhillyBeer2112 (2540) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Nice. Visiting my Swedish friends, they sometimes surprise me with rarities. Dark brown, modest head, notes of chocolate and coffee, medium to light bodied, less watery than some coffee porters I’ve had, but still you drink it and think you want a little more body here.

gegwilson (1449) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle from Booth’s, Ripon. Black with a good tan head. Very chocolately aroma. Taste is bitter chocolate with some burnt toast and coffee. Gets sweeter on the finish. Really good, just a touch on the thin side.

Bottle shared with wyzzywyz22, Wallasey, sunshine, getting smashed. Dark ruby brown with a thin beige bonce. Aroma of roasted malts, some smoke. Flavour is sweet and toasty malts, some coffee, smoke. A little thin and uneventful.

stevencon (464) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2014
Bottle to weizen glass. Dark brown almost black pour with khaki head. Toasted grain and recesses peanut butter cups. Lots of chocolate on the palate with peanuts and toasted bread. Better than I expected.

Bottle from Whole Foods Carrollwood. Pours a nice stout/ porter brown with a tan head. Nose is coffee, roast, toast, some mild smoke, and dark chocolate. Flavor is similar with roast, toast, mild smoke, coffee, and hints of dark chocolate. Medium in body with lingering smoky chocolate into the finish.
