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.

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.

Bottled 33cl. Darkish appearance. Mediocre malt profile. Medium bodied. Low bitterness. Without major flaws. Plain boring.

douglas88 (5838) - 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.

PorterPounder (5367) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2013
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 330 ml bottle. Pours a licorice-like black with a quickly fading khaki colored head. Aroma has some light roasted notes, a hint of creosote. Flavor is bold with a roasty profile, a touch of unsweetened baker’s chocolate, some day old cold black coffee and a hint of potting soil. Mouthfeel has a nice dryness to it. Enjoyed everything I have had from this brewer thus far.

fluffy (1501) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2013
while the flavor was decent, the aroma was offputting, like wet cigarettes dropped in coffee. possibly a bad bottle. otherwise a decent porter...as long as i didnt smell it too deeply. will try again in the future.

suprchunk (2103) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2013
Black pour. Small off-white head. Plenty of lacing. Smells of coffee and licorice with a hint of metal. A dry coffee taste with notes of chocolate. Sweet, yet dry finish. Not bad.

DocJitsu (845) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Pours an opaque dark brown, with ruby edges. A tan head appears and disappears just as quickly. Coffee, coffee, coffee nose. Mouthfeel is a real let down, but not as disappointing as the flavor of this dog. Coffee up front that fades way too quickly leaving a currant or two just before it goes away forever. It has promise for a moment. But, just a moment. How’d this make it to American shelves??

RedSox2004 (1214) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Deep brown, just this side of black, with a tan head and little lace. Toasted malt and dark fruit on the nose, some smokiness evident. Burnt firewood gives way to a mild caramel and dark fruit sweetness, Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, no carbination and a lingering dark fruit sweetness. There, I’ve had a beer from Iceland.

Appearance: Dark brown, almost black with a thin tan head. Aroma: Mocha Flavor: Dark roasted malt, coffee and mild to medium hop bitterness. Palate: Medium to light bodied. Overall: Definitely an American style porter.
