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 enjoyable porter, with rich toasty notes. Doesn’t even taste 6%. Very easy to drink!.

Le nez est pour ainsi dire inexistant : un peu de fumé qui peine ŕ se démarquer d’un trčs léger chocolat. La bouche manque largement de corps selon moi : malgré une belle effervescence, on manque cruellement de goűt. Trop légčre, l’amertume du houblon et celle du malt torréfié ne parviennent pas ŕ donner un peu de caractčre et tombent trčs mollement. Je ne la conseille pas.

(7) Drink again. Good beer. Warm. Slight espresso. Chocolate, coffee - easy to drink - maybe too easy.

KW92 (1063) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 8, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa ciemno brunatna z rubinowymi refleksami, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, wysoka, dość szybko opada, nietrwała.
AROMAT: Średnio intensywny. Prażono-palony. W tle kawa i gorzka czekolada.
SMAK: Kawowe, od początku do końca. Nieznaczny posmak gorzkiej czekolady. Poza tym dużo słodowości. Goryczka średnia, raczej krótka.
OGÓLNIE: Nie ukrywam, że liczyłem na coś dużo ciekawszego. Mimo wszystko zawód.

Black body, small brown head. Notes of yeast, coffee and chocolate. Feels dry (not necessarily a bad thing). Toasted malt flavours, chocolate and coffe notes. Dry overall. Medium dry toasted mal finish. Fairly bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bottle pour..light black dark brown color with small head..toasted nuts and roasted malt presence are big on the nose with some vanilla trace in the back..and a big boom of chocolate character as well..wow that is pretty interesting nose..mouthfeel is super smooth and silky..coffee makes it into the mix here and this is good coffee all around and a mighty tasty toasted porter..damn I wish my morning coffee had this complexity..worth trying for sure for anyone who is a fan of porters/stouts..solid offering...

Lubiere (12360) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015
A deep dark porter with a thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of bitter chocolate, coffee grind, light peated notes, smoky, fruity esters, very nice. In mouth, a bitter chocolate with coffee grind, pleasant smoked wood, licorice, very nice. On tap at WOB Chelsea.

Tejas (973) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Draught > Flying Saucer. Little aroma. Sort of thin dry palate. Head dies almost immediately. Flavor is a little roasty, a little ashy and something else I can't figure out. I know the deScription says coffee but then again I don't know what Icrlandic coffee taste like. This is good. I was hoping for better though. I think it's overrated at 92.

Highly drinkable & quite tasty porter! Pours black w/ a tan head & decent lacing. The aroma has a nice delicate blend of coffee & dark chocolate. The taste is more on the soft chocolate side but finishes with just enough bitterness to remind u that it is a porter & a damn good 1 at that! It has a lovely mouthfeel & is overall an outstanding beer!
