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.

A roast-heavy robust Porter with surprising expression and balance. Savory chocolate, roasted grains, German chocolate fudge cake, mild lactose / yeast, a charred campfire wood character, even a salty brine quality... all wrapped up in a savory, full body. It’s actually one of the few stout/porter at regular weight which seem strange to get so much character simply from malt. Lightly sweet with a beefy malt mouth feel, medium bitterness, a bit of roast / char astringency, medium to high carbonation. Pepper, roast heavy, a little inky, very chocolately but entirely malt-derived. Icelanders should be commended for this and the Borg porter, two of the most flavorful and well-balanced beers I had during my trip, each made without adjuncts or flavorings and at a reasonable gravity. From bottle at Keflavik Airport.

Bottle, thanks to Nick. Dark brown pour with a meek tan head. Flavour and nose was roasted malts, smoke, with a little coffee and chocolate. A bit thin. Was hoping for a bit more all round here. Overrated. Next!

33cl bottle from the Hogs Back Brewery Shop. An opaque black pour with a billowing light tan head that soon settled pack to a thin film; araoma of toasted grains; sweet and silky in the mouth with an attractive burnt toast taste, and a bitterness from the deeply roasted chocolate malts; leaving a soft toasted oat finish. Rather elegant.

Bottle at the Dolphin Hotel Disney. First Iceland beer for me!! Poured into a large snifter. Very black pour with a thick tan head that lasted about 60 seconds. No lacing. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, toasted and roasted malts, and raisins. The taste included dark chocolate, coffee, raisins, and a mildly bitter finish. Slight hop profile balanced well. Medium to heavy body, light carbonation. Slightly dry finish. Nice porter.

Bottle poured into pint glass. Black - very black. Tan head, which starts towering and frothy, but finishes like an espresso crema. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee - roasty and toasty. Tastes lovely, burnt caramelly opening, with a soft bitter finish. Thick, slick palate, gentle carbonation, full-on body. Yum!

Bottled. Poured light-medium brown with a tall toasted tan head. The aroma picked up sweeter, roasty coffee and generic black malts with cocoa and more coffee around the nose.. overall quite sweet, but I enjoyed it. The flavor found flat cola, vanilla, and tasty coffee at the core.. tangy, greener coffee beans and light oak on the edges.. finished with more coffee and a lot of residual sugars. Light-medium bodied and fairly flat on the palate despite the tall head.. OK feel.
