3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beige on black. Tasty malt. By style I’m rather impressed. Def. Worth Importing, though I don’t know what the beer scene is in Iceland. A very solid porter.

Dark, rich, bitter chocolate and coffee. I didn’t realize it was actually from Iceland while I was building my 6 pack. I won’t send it back.

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 Bière)

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost as black as a polar winter night in the glass, but a 370 lumen lightbulb reveals a stunning dark cherry colour. Aroma has hints of dark chocolate and roasted malts, but is a bit shy to show itself up. Once in the mouth, it reveals the truth. Bourbon, oak, dark fruits and coffee, medium carbonated, a bit sweet as expected of a porter but without that "thick" mouthfeel. Interesting beer, but not one of my favourites.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost black cola colored beer with a minimal brownish head. Aroma is dark bready roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, licorice. Taste is a tad sweet and a bit salty, licorice, smoked roasted malts, dark bread. Palate is medium, could be fuller. Finish is smooth, leaves quite a sweet taste in your mouth. No real bitterness. Mmh, maybe too high expectations.

Pours pitch black with a light head.
Sweet malty toasted nose. Almost märzen sweet.
Quite light, a little toasted but quite pilsner sweet. Blindfold me, and i would’ve guessed bock!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
AROMAT: Wyraźna paloność i świeżo zmielona kawa.
WYGLĄD: Klarowne, czarne i nieprzejrzyste, z kożuszkiem z piany.
SMAK: Piwo raczy nas głównie tym samym co możemy poczuć w aromacie - palone słody i kawa grają tu pierwsze skrzypce. W posmaku można odczuć delikatną czekoladę oraz mleczne akcenty. Co do goryczki, to jest ona przyjemnie zaznaczona, a wysycenie na poziomie średniego. Przyjemne piwo, ale niczego nie urywające.
