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.

Bizarre aroma that has a metallic element, almost like blood with a bit of smoke. Otherwise tastes nice and malty with a hint of burnt toast.

Butelka z WFP3, warka z 2-06-15, wiec mloda. Faktycznie dosc fajnie kawowy, ale zeby to byla jakas islandzka kawa, to ja bym niezauwazyl ;) sporo tez owocowosci, palonosci, choc aromaty dosc stonowane. w smaku w kwaskowata strone, troche popiolowe i dosc gorzkie w ustach. Fajne. Nieurywajace nic, ale bardzo milo wywazone.

Denne islandske øl er meget røget i smagen og har et sort udseende med en svag, men tykt, hvidt skum. Øllen har også smagsnuancer af lakrids, chokolade og lidt røget/brændt karamel. Dette gør øllen til en god cremet oplevelse. Lav karbonering.

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.
March 2015.

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

Sigmund (6645) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2015
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.0%. Very dark ruby colour, nearly black. Small tan head. Aroma of coffee, moderately roasted malts and dark chocolate, a hint of dust. Quite dry flavour, distinct notes of coffee (an actual ingredient), hints of dark bitter chocolate. Moderate hops (Cascade, Northern Brewer and Hallertauer Tradition).
