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.

The head is brown and robust, the body is black. It smells sweet, chocolate, a bit roasty, creamy. The taste is sweet, a bit roasted toasty, but more darkmalty-strange, a bit chocolate. In the aftertaste a bit roastmalty, bitter. I most like the aftertaste. Drinkable. 13/11/10/10/13/10

Poured a deep brown with a frothy tan head. An aroma of roasted sweet coffee malt. Medium body with flavour of milk chocolate and slightly roasted malt. Very impressive.

joeneugs (3240) - Livermore, California, USA - OCT 28, 2012
12 oz. bottle. It pours a brown color with a small tan head. The aroma is nice with notes of milk chocolate, coffee and hints of vanilla. Smells pretty sweet. The flavor has roasted malt and coffee with more burnt toast and dark chocolate. Finish is slightly bitter, ashy and roasted. The body is medium with good carbonation. Really good porter.

First off, the horns on the helmet. If you’re going to go with a Viking theme, get it right. What would Neil Oliver say? Incidentally I saw him getting clattered on Viking brew recently, quite amusing. Anyhow, my next thoughts drifted to toasting porters. How do you catch them? They clearly won’t fit in a toaster or under the grill so how do you go about the toasting? Clearly I’m joking, I’m not an imbecile. Anyone want to go Viking sometime?

jfb (3818) - Freising, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2012
(bottle) pours a pitch black colour with a frothy mahogany head. aroma of roasted malts, cardboard and yeast, with a hint of blueberries, shrimp and old coffee. flavour is mostly the same, stale roasted malts are dominant, with a light meatiness and a hint of dark chocolate, coffee and earth. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

Nik925 (751) - California, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Beige on black. Tasty malt. By style I’m rather impressed. Def. Worth Importing, though I don’t know what the beer scene is in Iceland. A very solid porter.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
355 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, espresso and dark chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, metallic off-flavours, dark chocolate and some grassy hops. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and a rich malty finish with coffee notes. Good, but the off-flavours disturb me too much.

330ml bottle

BBE 20.03.14 - Pours dark brown with a white head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, mocha and hints of chocolate. Taste is roasty with a lot of coffee notes, hints of mocha and vanilla. Roasty and sweetish finish with some unpleasant notes and hints of chocolate. A bit unbalanced, but tasty porter.

laiti (5653) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 20.03.2014
Aroma is sweetish with cocoa, coffee, syrupy notes and sugar. Flavour is sweet with syrup, some licorice, coffee and some cocoa. Dry and finish with well roasted malt. Too sweet but decent anyway.
