Pours pitch black with a thin layer of creamy tan head. Coffee/toffee aromas. Flavors of coffee and chocolate with just a hint of smokiness. Makes me want to listen to Bjork and... well, that’s the extent of my Icelandic knowledge.

Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass
From: World Market in Las Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: Aug. 1, 2013
Consumed: Aug. 3, 2013
Poured a brownish almost black color with 2-to-3 fingers of tan frothy tan head. Sporadic, uneven foamy lacing along the sides all the way down. Great retention on the top on the way down.
Smelled dark chocolate, fudge, toffee, caramel, coffee, smoky fire, toast, roasty nuts and tree bark.
Tasted similar to the nose, albeit just a tad bit smokier. Got smoky fire, coffee beans, dark chocolate, toast, ashtray, toast, roasty nuts, fudge, caramel and toffee.
Medium body. Creamy-to-slick texture. Average-to-light carbonation. Long finish.
Just an average porter overall. Nothing too special about it.

330ml bottle courtesy of JohnRMurdoch - very dark brown near black, no head, dark chocolate and coffee aroma, flavours as aroma, bit bitter for a porter, the first beer I’ve tried from Iceland

330ml bottle from Good Spirits Co. Almost black colour, not much head. Milky woody malt aroma. Roasted malt flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Not a typical porter but still a decent beer.

Bottled 20/07/13. A black beer with a disappering off-white head. An interesting and tasty porter. Roasty and chocolatey and with coffee notes. Some sourness and some good hops. A lot going on but it all balances really well. I really liked this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black with a big beige head. Aroma of toast, nuts, roasted malt, light chocolate and some coffee. Taste is light sweet and mild bitter. Full body, oily texture, a tiny bit watery - could be thicker, light carbonation. Very nice.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bardzo dobry porter. Palony ale niezbyt mocno. Glebia czerni i lekki nawet osad na dnie. Piana bezowa wielka i trwala. Aromat suszonej sliwki. Posmak palonosci z guma balonowa. wytrawny i rozgrzewajacy finisz, choc ma to piwo malo procent ale takie robi wrazenie

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark black color, not translucent. Aroma is a slight roasted hazelnut. Flavor is, nutty and quite dry. A lot like a Irish stout, rather than a porter.

Decent - pretty sweet porter with evident chocolate and coffee. An unrefined whiff of alcohol and raw sugar. Cherries and cough drops.
