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.

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.

Aroma is slightly malty and toasty with some coffee notes, but doesn’t have a great carry. Appearance is watery but dark with a small off white head. The taste was a bit toasty and malty, but also a little stale and bitter. Coffee taste was present but not overly robust. Palate was thin, but carbonation carries the finish.

This is the best of the output from the brewer and he should give himself a pat on the back, Chocolate coffee aroma delivers in the taste, but there is something missing in the middle, for me, perhaps it could either be sweeter or more aggressively bitter to round it out. For me. I like this though has a decent flavour up front and a decent length of taste and carry.
