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.

Aroma of sweet milk chocolate. Very smooth and easy-going porter. Big up to the Hlíðarfjall mountain :)

2 bouteilles de 330 ml partagées lors d’une dégustation entre amis. Arôme: Odeur de céréales grillées avec une pointe de café. Apparence: La couleur est noire. Présence d’un mince col mousseux beige et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales grillées avec une pointe de café et de chocolat. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de torréfaction en arrière goût. (Rating #7009)

Slipstream (2423) - USA - JUL 24, 2016
Fine label and appealing pour. Very good, nuanced porter flavor: caramel, coffee, woodsmoke, vanilla beans, brown bread. The aroma is a little bland but this is a fine porter overall.

mice (171) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Musta olut melko pienellä ja nopeasti katoavalla vaahdolla. Tuoksu paahteisen kahvinen, maltainen, limppuinen ja hieman nahkea. Maku maltainen, limppuinen ja paahteinen. Kahvia hyvin kevyesti. Ehkä aavistus savuisuutta. Suolainen. Keskitäyteläinen, mutta jää ehkä vähän ohueksi kuitenkin rungoltaan. Pehmeä ja limppuinen kokonaisuus.

Enteogenisk (125) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2016
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 Bottle in wine glass. This is a well balanced and well made porter. The addition of coffee has been made with delicate fingers and comes slithering silently in the aftertaste.

realadam (113) - HUNGARY - JUL 19, 2016
Very dark brown colored beer with a bitter taste (plus a long aftertaste) and the aroma of fresh coffee beans. A really good beer.

goleiro (220) - Lublin, POLAND - JUL 17, 2016
W smaku podobne do prunum - śliwka, czekolada, palone. Zapach też. Super piwo.

beerman33190 (83) - FRANCE - JUL 17, 2016
Everything is a bit too subtle here. The aromas, taste, texture are just a little too under-whelming. Maybe I just got my expectations up too much. An icelandic "toasted" porter with a Viking on the label ! Wow. It’s nice but it won’t get you to Valhalla.

probstblueribbon (3675) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2016
330 ml bottle via Lubiere, shared. Dark brown-black with a thin tan head. A bit of chocolate, roasted malt, toasted, a touch barfy, a bit oxidized and worn out, dry, moderate bitterness, light chocolate finish.
