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.

330ml bottle at home. Pours dark brown, near, black, with a thick light tan head. Bit cold just now, but metallic aromas, coffee and chocolate. Light smoke, could be toast, I guess. Tobacco later. OK, but a bit odd.

Basically just a quality porter. Rich. Dark Chocolate and coffee. Um, not much else to say, just filling in characters because rate beer wants me to.

Didnt much care for this. Aroma is nice and has pretty standard porter/stout smells of coffee, chocolate and toasted grains. Jet black with tan head. Taste is where things go south. There is a distinct metallic taste which for me drowns out all the good tastes. Nice mouthfeel, low carbonation. Didnt care for this especially for 11$ a sixer.

Aroma: roasted coffee, dark chocolate malts. Appearance: black, brown at first big foamy head, quickly disappearing. Taste: light to medium sweet. Palate: smoky sweetness, coffee again, turning to light bitterness. Overall: nice Porter. Bottle from Drinker’s Paradise, London.

Dark brown to black, huge white/beige head. A - Lovely, toasted stuff, not usual roasted malts. Coffee, toasted cookies, cereal, bitter chocolate. T - Intense, silky, loads of roasted notes. M - low-med body, med carb, dry. F - Long, faint sweet, toasted coconut, toasted flakes, light roasty bitter. 2sum - Just amazing, delicious, ideally balanced proper porter! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (853) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2014
BB 15 May 2015. Poured an opaque black with a red tint around the edges and with a few millimetres of light tan coloured foam for a head. Poor lacing. Aroma of sweet molasses and a trace of smoke - overall not strong. Taste of mild sweetness - taste not as good as aroma. Medium body. Smooth long slightly bitter-sweet finish. OK.

martjoobolut (592) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 24, 2013
0,33L bottle. Pours black with light tan head. The head disappears rather quickly. Aroma is sweet malt, mild chocolate, coffee. Taste is malt, burnt, light liquor, dark chocolate. Finish is nice dark chocolate bitter. Overall: carbonation is little too much for me and it is little bit too watery, average porter.
