Gorgeous beer. Thick, silky head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate. taste is nice and bitter like a German Schwarzbier, not sweet like some of the porters sampled recently. Nice roasted grain flavor with elements of dark chocolate, prunes, cherries. Makes me want to go back to Iceland....

Bardzo dobry porter. Palony ale niezbyt mocno. Glebia czerni i lekki nawet osad na dnie. Piana bezowa wielka i trwala. Aromat suszonej sliwki. Posmak palonosci z guma balonowa. wytrawny i rozgrzewajacy finisz, choc ma to piwo malo procent ale takie robi wrazenie

Dark, thick, minimal head. Sweet aroma. Sweet, sour fermented fruit. Crisp finish, toasted, not dry, you'll want another sip.

Drank from the bottle, wish I had a glass to pour in to. Great smoke flavor and a nice palate.this was a top notch beer! Reminded me of stone smoked porter.

Quite a lovely beer brewed 60 miles south of the Artic Circle in Iceland! A beer best served chilled? I thought so! Burnt chocolate aroma, light taste with a chocolate and coffee bean highlight and a drying burnt finish. Quite an enjoyable and easy going drink, a good staple beer and pretty sessionable!

330ml bottle. from the beer place at Charing Cross. Appearance - well, very dark with no head apart from a few bubbles.
Aroma is extremely strong of toasted coffee beans and strong coffee in general. Also a bit of cocoa. Taste - well it certainly is full on flavour but without being overpowering. Same as the aroma - a lot of coffee and cocoa and then a bit of alcohol/hops after with the final taste being coffee. Only criticism is that it is/was extremely carbonated.

Bottle bought online and shared with MichaelBruch. Deep black colour with creamy, steady head. Very smooth and thick texture. Taste of rich coffee, lightly sweetend espresso and deep roasted nuts. Delicious and easy to drink.

Pours a very dark ruby red that is almost black with a dark brown head. The aroma is of roasted coffee. The flavor was of sweet malt and roasted coffee. The body was full with a creamy texture that went down smooth. Overall a good first impression by the Einstok brewers.
