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.

Everything is a bit too subtle here. The aromas, taste, texture are just a little too under-whelming. Maybe I just got my expectations up too much. An icelandic "toasted" porter with a Viking on the label ! Wow. It’s nice but it won’t get you to Valhalla.

330 ml bottle via Lubiere, shared. Dark brown-black with a thin tan head. A bit of chocolate, roasted malt, toasted, a touch barfy, a bit oxidized and worn out, dry, moderate bitterness, light chocolate finish.

Estebanik (713) - Lublin, POLAND - JUL 16, 2016
Bujna, wysoka, beżowa piana. W aromacie sporo nutek opiekanych, jest też trochę palonosci. W smaku karmelowe, opiekane. Piłem małą próbkę, więc dużo nie napisze, ale szału nie zrobiło.

HPDalen (276) - DENMARK - JUL 16, 2016
Bottle. Pours almost black with a tan head. Sweet and malty aroma, I smell chocolate, coffee, and earth. Full bodied, medium carbonation. Quite abrupt. Nice toasted flavours, smoke, coffee and toast. Quite decent.

Aromat delikatnie palony, trochę kawy. W smaku lepiej, kawowo, paloność, słodowo. Przyjemny posmak, goryczka do umiarkowanej.

phfyysik (648) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2016
Pours dark brown, almost black with very light head which disappears very quickly. Aroma is alcohol, some acid, nutmeg, some dark bread. Taste is soft, espresso, nuts, creamy, some vegetable oil, chocolate. Light beer, but can be better.

gaudinosmotors (20) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 10, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2016 On the lighter side of a medium bodied Porter but fine for it. Earthy coffee with dark chocolate underneath it. A hint of blood orange there too. Smells cracking. Perfect Porter for a warmer night. Save the heavier bodies for the winter.

Bottled. 33cl sample. The aroma has roast, bit coffee, chocolate, hint of dark fruit. Black coloured beer with a medium sized beige head. The taste is light bitter and has roast, coffee, hint of red fruit. Medium bodied beer. Nice.
