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.

bartholos (162) - GERMANY - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle. Deep dark brown colored, opaque with a small tan head. Toasted malt aroma is in the nose with a light coffee note along with a dark fruits and dried plum and a hint of date. Well balanced flavor that starts off sweet and turns into a nice light bitter dry finish. Light notes of coffee in the taste, however, a sweet malty resembles of malt based coffee substitute is dominating the beginning and the middle. The end gets more dry and toasty while the peppery warmth of alcoholic gets more noticeable. The body is medium to thick with low carbonation and gives the flavour and taste room to develop. Complex beer that changes quite a bit while drinking. After the nice creamy mouthfeel and the bitter dry finish stays a long light bitter aftertaste with a strong toasty note.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2016 330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours black with a medium beige head. Dark chocolate and toasted coffee aroma. The flavour matched the aroma, but with stronger emphasis on the coffee, a bitter toasty finish.

Little, to no, aroma. Color certainly qualifies as porter. Light coffee taste, with a full toasted/charred finish. It seems more bitter than toasted.

CloakedDagger (1672) - - OCT 1, 2015
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear black with a warm reddish hue and a beige head. Subtle roasted nose - more nutty rather. Medium body, bitter chocolate notes and subtle roast. Everything appears rather mainstream and downplayed as with most Einstök. 011015

Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours black with a medium-sized white head. The aroma features roasty, bready maltiness with coffee and rye pudding. Taste is sweetish, full of chocolate and licorice. Medium roastiness, not very dry, even in the finish. The palate is medium-bodied, creamy in texture, softly carbonated. Fairly rich in taste and displays a nice, velvety palate.
