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.

Aquilo (533) - Berkeley, California, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Black with a thin brown head. The aroma is malt, smoke, and sour coffee. Flavor is moderately bitter, and very nice. I normally love dark ales, but the sour aroma turned me off a bit. Still, this isn’t bad at all.

The aroma is toasted and smokey with molasses and coffee. The appearance is dark brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is a bit thin. Overall a very good one.

rand (1250) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle 330 ml from Maruhn - Darmstadt (D). Black Porter with an average and fleeting brown-beige head. Strong aroma of roasted, chocolate, coffee, dust and nuts. The taste is typical Porter, soft, toasted, choc, coffee, vanilla. However it’s rather slight, without acridity and heavy hop. Robust, hints of fruits, licorice, slight bitterness of roasted and finally dry.
