3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2013 Bready, yeasty aroma with hints of cereal (think Cheerios) and leather. Clear, dark pour, brownish black, frothy head that dissipates quickly. Medium bodied, sweet molasses and coffee with slightly bitter burnt aftertaste with light grassiness. Overall, rather nice. I got it because it’s from Iceland and I don’t think I’ve ever had an Icelandic beer. Glad I did. Not my favorite, but definitely drinkable.

Bottle. Moderate toasted, strong coffee, and dark chcocolate, light resin for the malt, light to moderate earth for the yeast, with notes of charcoal, cola and cocoa powder. Head is small, fizzy, light brown with fair lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear very dark brown. Flavor starts lightly acidic and tart, then finishes lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter and a bit salty. Palate is on the fuller side of medium, silky, with a carbonation from soft to lively. Toasty aromas, bitey flavors and a diverse palate makes this a tasty Porter.
