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.

It works very well. Chocolate, with liquorice, vanilla; no burnt flavours, very clean.

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.

I remember back a couple years ago when no one wanted to try Einstok and every time I got this on discount, it was literally like drinking gold. It runs so smooth for a porter with a nice smokey taste that’s very rich :)

Super duper dark bear like islandic night. Non other dark beer tasted so truly dark like this one

Bottle @De Tolly joogipood, Tartu, Estonia. Pours with small brown head. Aroma of wood, slightly chocolately, coffee. Taste of dark chocolate, dark bread, caramel, burnt malt, slight smokeness. It has everything I love about porters.

Tiago_Miranda (12) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - SEP 22, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2015 Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. Dark brown colour with light brown head. Flavour of coffee but not to strong. Very silky and smooth in the mouth.

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

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2016 Bottle. Delicious aroma. Dark, rich coffee color. Sweet, chocolate, toasted coffee flavors. Very smooth, from start to finish. Flavors are well balanced, although not as prominent as the best porters and imperial ales.

Dark, thick, minimal head. Sweet aroma. Sweet, sour fermented fruit. Crisp finish, toasted, not dry, you'll want another sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
