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.

Dashimus (227) - London, Greater London, - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from Myvatn Nature Baths, Iceland. Pours black with a thin tan head that fades extremely quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, vanilla, dark chocolate and strong coffee. Flavour is moderate sweetness but a low bitterness. Surprisingly carbonated and thin bodied. Most of the darker beers in Iceland seem to over load on the malt. This on manages to balance it nicely.

Outstanding representation of a Porter. Pours the right color with the right nose and right head. The ones I had were right all around. Good roast and body. Skál i botn!

From Saveur-Biere. In Teku glass. At dinner, with chicken steaks. Very good. Good body for the style and a great balance between roastyness, bitterness and the sweetness of its finish

Smell of coffee, cocoa. Dark brown colour, dark brown head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice, tar in finish. Surprisingly light body for such strong flavours. Bitter, lightly sweet. Soft and wild carbon. Slightly ashy palate.

From a bottle into a 2016 New Belgium stem glass. Pours near black with medium head and lace. Aroma of dark malts, chocolate, espresso. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of burnt malts, espresso, bitter chocolate, minerals, bitter herbs, funky fruit rind. Overall rich, bold, tasty but with some rough edges.
