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.

SetauketBrewer (71) - New York, USA - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle opened at home. Great color in the pour but lacks some if the head I usually look for. Aroma a little on tube weak side, could use some more oomph in it. What it lacks in aroma it makes up for in flavor. Deep roasted notes with a definite toast to it. Low on hops and bitterness but great dark flavors

kramer (5760) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black, body with a minimal wispy light brown head. The nose is chocolaty and roasty with a delicious cold-pressed coffee note. This smells quite delicious. The flavor is rather heavy on the roast and coffee, it doesn’t really come across as a Porter all that much. Still tastes pretty nice though, nice coffee and roastiness. Finishes with a light citrusy note on the back end. Medium bodied with just a light fizzy carbonation level. Lingering coffee as well. Interesting beer.

DWG; Bottle 330 ml. Pours a moderate, black with a creamy, fading, still some lacing tan head. Nose is moderate, roasted, malt, coffee, spinach, light liqorice and beans.

metalspice (576) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2015
Helt svart med lysbrunt skum. Lukter espresso, men også med klare maritime toner av tang. Smaken er også preget av kaffe medet lit innsalg av salt i bakgrunnen. Behagelig munnfølelse. Passet godt sammen med et ostefat.

This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma was of roasted grain, pretty dry and 1 note. Flavor similar, a bit cardboardy.
