Basically just a quality porter. Rich. Dark Chocolate and coffee. Um, not much else to say, just filling in characters because rate beer wants me to.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Didnt much care for this. Aroma is nice and has pretty standard porter/stout smells of coffee, chocolate and toasted grains. Jet black with tan head. Taste is where things go south. There is a distinct metallic taste which for me drowns out all the good tastes. Nice mouthfeel, low carbonation. Didnt care for this especially for 11$ a sixer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
BB 15 May 2015. Poured an opaque black with a red tint around the edges and with a few millimetres of light tan coloured foam for a head. Poor lacing. Aroma of sweet molasses and a trace of smoke - overall not strong. Taste of mild sweetness - taste not as good as aroma. Medium body. Smooth long slightly bitter-sweet finish. OK.

0,33L bottle. Pours black with light tan head. The head disappears rather quickly. Aroma is sweet malt, mild chocolate, coffee. Taste is malt, burnt, light liquor, dark chocolate. Finish is nice dark chocolate bitter. Overall: carbonation is little too much for me and it is little bit too watery, average porter.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: into a snifter, dark brown pour, short, creamy dark tan head quickly shrinking to a ring. Aroma: smells awesome: sweet and, yes, toasty, with chocolate, coffee, warm nuts, and maybe a hint of toasted coconut. Taste: sweet and roasty, with dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel and nuts, and again that seeming note of toasted coconut. Finish: smooth and bittersweet, with a bit of toasty, roasty character lingering. Notes: Darn good. And I got to put a pin in Iceland on the ol’ beer map.
