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.

Reimer96 (1594) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Pours a clear dark brown with a bubbly light brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malts & espresso beans. Taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate, espresso and contains a nice bitter coffee on the finish. Finish is dry and slightly over carbonated but overall this porter is medium body and rich on flavor and well balanced... Lower the carbonation and this is a 4.5 point beer.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2015 330ml bottle - pours black with tan head - chocolate, coffee aroma. Smooth mouthfeel but a bit thin-bodied. Taste - coffee, dark chocolate, nuttiness coming through from the toasting - reasonably sweet. Nice - but not wildly different from similar porters

bob_w (373) - new york, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Nearly opaque brown/black color with some off-white lacing on the edge of the glass. Cocoa, vanilla, coffee aroma. Good bitterness to offset the solid malty character. Nice roast note, assertive but not acrid, and a little sweetness mixing in the middle. Solid medium body. Finishes with a coffee-like note, with a clean aftertaste.

Bottled. A black beer with a brown shine under a brown head. The aroma has notes of coffee and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt, leading to a dry roasted finish.
