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.

Bottle at home. The color is deep brown to black with a compact, greyish beige head. Roasted aroma with coffee, chocolate, rye bread and hint of smoke. A little light though. More roasted malt in the flavor with more coffee beans, leather, burned wood and very dark chocolate. Some sweetness in the background. Has a rich and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A well-roasted, coffee porter. Easy to drink.

Holmen1 (3409) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 3, 2015
Flaske delt med Ovesen mens esb-vųrteren kjųlner: nesten helt svart, med beige skum som varer. Dufter litt vanilje sammen med brent brųd. Kremet munnfylde og fint avrundet smak. Mųrk sjokolade og mild kaffe i god blanding. Smooth og samtidig passe tųrr gjųr den eminent drikkbar.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 03.04.14. Black. Diminishing pale brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and burnt wood. Similar taste, with moderate smoked malt, as well as wood, vanilla and dark chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel. Fine drinkability.

rondphoto (2782) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 31, 2015
bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Nearly opaque brown/black with a solid tan head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is mildly roasted malt with chocolate and earthy coffee that moves gracefully through the palate to a finish that only needs a modicum of hops for balance. An easy to drink Porter, full-bodied and rich.
