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.

Philym (1004) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
Appearance: Dark brown with 2 finger thick tan head. Aroma: Umami with a quality that reminds me of the savoury smell of smoked oysters? smokey, roasted malt. Taste: Low/medium sweetness, and sourness, low bitterness and slightly salty. Palate: Thick smooth texture, airy, light texture, average carbonation, lingering savoury, grassy, smoky finish. Again the savoury taste reminds me of oysters, not in a shellfish or fishy way Comments: Tasty and lace. Strange all in all but tasty enough.

allmyvinyl (3429) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2014
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.

NJJereme (375) - Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2014
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.

KeefOz (923) - 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.
