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.

Pours black with a nice off white fluffy head. Nose is toasty, dark chocolate, a bit of coffee, also a milky lactose note. Taste largely mirrors nose, milky, subtle notes of coffee and chocolate, a general roastiness permeates, also I find a mineral quality to the water. A mild bitterness on the finish, not very sweet. Overall this is extremely drinkable, well balanced, and delicious. Probably my favorite porter.

Orlando ABC bottle. Classic dark porter look with a huge aroma of sorghum and sweet malt. Flavor is nice with molasses and finishes with a hint of coffee bitterness and a little lingering smoke. Good.

snowdog140 (42) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
A strong aroma of malt and sweet scents, one of the most appealing aromas to go with the very dark colour. Taste is again a combination of malt and sweet, more coffee like elements, definitely one to get if you can

Bottle@fhoone. Black. Soft roasty. Some coffee, a bit of jerky. Some saltyness, but noy necessarily licorice. Light med bodied. Bit bready, tasty. Some tar in the finish. Sort of nice light going toasty porter. Don’t mind this at all.

Nice porter. Dark dark Brown. Chocolate malt, coffee, wood, smoke in nose. Taste has some milk chocolate sweetness, plenty of coffee, and roast and nutty. Really good. Go Iceland!
