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.

ianwelby (748) - SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Opaque black beer with a thick foamy head. The dominant smell is toasted malt. The same is true of the flavour. There’s some fruit, chocolate and a touch of bitter hop in there too but the rich, toasty malt dominates.

thmsboyd (112) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle BBE 30.10.15, bottled 10.10.13. Drunk at lower-end room temperature. Most prominent on the nose are pleasant toasted malt aromas. Dark, chocolate brown body with a surprisingly tight, creamy off-white head. Gentle sweetness on the tongue followed by a soft, dry bitterness. Typical low carbonation for a porter. Medium to light body and a fairly abrupt bitter finish. Overall an enjoyable, but slightly one-dimensional porter. Does not taste as high as 6%abv

yackery (159) - California, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Opaque body under fast lacing and sandy, foamy head that dissolves in a couple of minutes. Aroma is mild roast, dark chocolate cake, cereal, and fudge toffee. Taste is salt and bitter and very mildly cough drop sweet. Palate is a little fizzy if not rough. Finish is bitter like espresso. Overall good beer.
