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.

Aroma of wet barnyard hay and coffee, chocolate. Taste is nice and bitter like a German Schwarz bier, not sweet like some of the porters. Nice roasted grain flavor with elements of dark chocolate and pilsner malt and smoke. Finishing with a light sweetness. Barnyard kills it.

Vanilla nut aroma. Creamy almost. Tan head and black color. God damn, This tastes amazing. Tastes like it smells. Creamy vanilla and nut but very balanced. I wanna have this after dinner. This is a dessert in its self. Love it.

haukur (1199) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - APR 28, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Nice roasty aroma, faint black with a small head. Incredibly thin bodied with a watery metal finish. Very overrated

EdInSaltLake (517) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - APR 24, 2013
Aroma: roasted and toasted malt; a little smoky.
Flavor: Really dark caramel malt; burnt sugar, burnt raisin. Roasted flavor--but it’s less prominent than in the aroma. Brown sugar aftertaste. Subtle fruity flavor; not sure if it’s from yeast or hops.

Osprey87 (1154) - London via, WALES - APR 21, 2013
Bottle, chilled. Not a great deal going on in the taste. Barley, a little sweet and yeasty.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - APR 17, 2013
33cl bottle. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Roasted malt in the aroma with notes of chocolate and some coffee. Flavor is a bit sweet with roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, some caramel and smoke. Smooth and medium bodied, quite dry finish. Very tasty.

Embrouille (2803) - SWITZERLAND - APR 16, 2013
Bottled 33cl. Darkish appearance. Mediocre malt profile. Medium bodied. Low bitterness. Without major flaws. Plain boring.

douglas88 (5553) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dallas. Pours a deep dark brown color with a medium off-white head. A sweet malty smoky nose. The flavor is really nice: caramel, malty sweetness, nutty, lighter roast, some light smoke. Very smooth. Good.
