3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is slightly malty and toasty with some coffee notes, but doesn’t have a great carry. Appearance is watery but dark with a small off white head. The taste was a bit toasty and malty, but also a little stale and bitter. Coffee taste was present but not overly robust. Palate was thin, but carbonation carries the finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a thick, dark black with an off-brown head. The aroma is of slightly sweet toasty malts and coffee. The taste is of burnt toast, coffee and hop bitterness. It has a smooth but rich mouthfeel, and it coats my tongue nicely. It’s a little too burnt/bitter for my personal taste, but it’s a great stout beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black bodied, medium head. Roasted bread, quite dry, cereal, only basic hop underpinning. Medium bitter, roasted taste, fairly smooth, medium carbonation. Perhaps a bit too medium everything... Not quite as developed or exciting as I hoped. Still, an Icelandic porter is pretty cool. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bičre)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33l bottle. Bought in Iceland by Eva. Bottled 25.6.15 BBD 25.6.2016. Black with medium caramel head. Deep licorice and yeast aromas with a hint of metallic coffee... I’m not getting as much coffee as I expected from the description, but there is clearly some. Milder than expected, but smooth and soft. Very easy to drink. A starters porter/stout. Very pleasant, but less interesting than I’d hoped.
