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.

worldbeertaste (1735) - West Midlands, - OCT 11, 2012
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.

mgajdaczewa (866) - Katowice, POLAND - JUN 25, 2015
W aromacie głównie nuty czekoladowe uzupełnione nieco śliwokową wędzonką, co dziwne, bo nie ma tu słodu wędzonego a dodatek kawy, który ukazał się tu w takiej formie. Podobnie w smaku, czekolada, leciutka wędzonka, rodzynki, kawa. Gładkie i pijalne, mimo to czuć, że mogłoby być dużo bardziej intensywne i lepsze.

Bottle. Pours opaque black with small white head. Aroma is mild with notes of roasted malt, espresso, sweet licorice, toffee and hints of lanolin.

Pours dark brown with tan head. Atone is strong coffee and bitter chocolate. Taste is heavy on toasted malt and espresso with notes of dark chocolate and berries. No real hop bitterness at all. May be a touch too bubbly from over carbonation. Overall, an Excellent porter!
