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 (226) - 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.

vinivini (909) - BELARUS - FEB 2, 2016
Ink black colour. Moderate tan head. Good lacing. Massive coffee on nose, oats, chocolate, a hint of earth. Light body. Oily. The flavour duplicates the smell. Very descent.

frankliam (11) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark with light brown head. Aromas of coffee immediately. Clear notes of coffee, toffee, and chocolate, nutty and smooooth. Really great and easy drinking porter, perhaps easy to forget it’s alcohol so use caution (ha ha ha). Keeps you warm in winter, expertly done, excellent brew.
