COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

yackery (155) - California, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Opaque body under fast lacing and sandy, foamy head that dissolves in a couple of minutes. Aroma is mild roast, dark chocolate cake, cereal, and fudge toffee. Taste is salt and bitter and very mildly cough drop sweet. Palate is a little fizzy if not rough. Finish is bitter like espresso. Overall good beer.

Bottle from Vínbúđin
Dark brown color, almost black; small head. The aroma is mild, roasted malt, and a touch of dark chocolate. Dry but smooth mouthfeel; roasted malt flavor, with no excess of ashes; regular bitterness.
Not enough chocolate, it’s more a Stout than a Porter.
