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.

Bottle pours brown/black with a thin beige head. Aroma shows chocolate, moderate roast, and green coffee. Flavor is primarily roast with a nice coffee integration. Overall body is moderate and strangely soft with a nice roast bitterness on the finish. If i’m ever in iceland, i think i know what i’ll be drinking.

rangerred (989) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JAN 14, 2015
330 ml bottle into a tulip. Pours pitch black with just a thin wispy medium tan head. A touch of lacing around the sides of the glass but that’s about it. The one thing I noticed lacking in the aroma is the coffee advertised on the bottle. There is the slightest hint but I was really expecting it to jump out at me. More caramel and dark chocolate than anything. The flavor is also quite light on the coffee but expands on the dark chocolate found in the aroma. There is also a certain nuttiness here that reminds me of chocolate covered almonds. Subtle sweetness and prickly carbonation leads to a slightly sticky finish. Overall, a pretty average porter. My first beer from Iceland it really isn’t bad. I would gladly have another one.

Black color, little foam. The taste has body roast aromas with coffee notes. Tiny bit watery, bit quite solid beer.

SinH4 (975) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 13, 2015
Black color with a touch of amber. Toasted malt, espresso, chocolaty, nutty. A bit of bitterness towards the end. Rich taste, but still a light body. Nice.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2015
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Sentrum. Drukket i Skibotn 3 Jan 14. Ekstremt mørk amber. Lavt mokkafarget skum som daler raskt. Litt lacing. Beskjeden aroma av røstet malt & sjokolade. Lite kullsyre. God smak av røstet malt & sjokolade. Blir svakt syrlig etter hvert. Hint av kaffe i ettersmaken. Tykt bunnfall igjen på flaska.

GreatDane1632 (947) - USA - JAN 11, 2015
Rated based on notes taken on 27 Dec 2014 -- From the bottle. If this was fresh I could assume this is great, as it is it’s metallic and unsavory. It has the qualities of a great porter.

Shag (2678) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2014
Pitch black with a beige head. The aroma contains some strong coffee, dark fruit, chocolate, and licorice. The flavor is rather dry and bitter like my sense of humor. Very similar to a dry stout but more of malty backbone. The toasted element shows in the aftertaste. Overall very nice porter.
