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.

Very nutty nose. Creamy tan head that left a fair bit of lacing. Fairly simple in flavor, a bit bitter, a bit smoky, a bit sweet. Decent but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Aroma - coffee for sure, but there is also a sweet malt sort of aroma as well Appearance - black body color; liquid is opaque; the head is a light tan, the bubbles are very tight and packed the head about 2", and slowly dissipates into a nice slice of head. Taste - very nice roast and toasty brew. It’s a little nutty roast sort of thing, there is a little coffee quality about it as well. Very nice. Palate - is medium; the texture is creamy; the carbonation is soft; the finish leaves a subtle roast on your teeth and gums. Nice brew for sure

danlo (1049) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2014
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe online shop. Black in colour, with a frothy foam beige head that diminishes leaving lots of lacing and aroma of roast malt, coffee & dark fruits. Taste is toasted malt, with vanilla, chocolate & coffee, smokey notes plus some lingering earthy bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry bitter roast malty finish. Quite drinkable.
