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.

Deep ruby red basically dark brown almost black. with a frothy, thick beige lasting head. Smells of deep roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and caramel. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Nice roasted chocolate taste with some burnt elements, malt, caramel and a smoky dry coffee finish. I like it but it feels a bit burnt.

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown color with a beige head of foam. The aroma has roasty coffee notes with a lot of toffee sweetness, but mostly coffee. Medium coffee bitterness, but there is also an underlying sweetness in there as well. As it warms, I get some anise, and some other unknown spices. Medium body and medium carbonation. Pretty good porter.

Pours black with nice amounts of lacing. Aroma is gentle traces of coffee and roasted malt. This is followed by a well balanced taste, where no flavour dominates. There are good traces of coffee, espresso and some dark chocolate. A dry porter, this was easy to drink and could also serve as a good introduction for those wishing to try porters that are not dominated by high alcohol content.

tightslice (597) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is roasted malts. Smooth slightly bitter roasted coffee. Very drinkable. A little bit herbal / bitterness in there but ultimately surprised at how good this is (considering the other Einstok beer catalog).

ExpendableHero (794) - Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2015
Pleasantly surprised here. Dark brown, almost black, beer with a frothy, brown head. Aromas of molasses and dark chocolate. Taste follows the nose with hints of dark chocolate, mild coffee, molasses, and earthy notes. Semi-sweet lactic finish. Excellent blend of sweet and bitter chocolate flavors. Extremely easy to drink and smooth. Very good.

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.
