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.

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.

Bijl (154) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2016
Zwart...iets lichtdoorlatend onderin het glas, crèmekleurige schuimkraag die snel zakt.... laat een mooie laagvorming langs het glas. Aroma: geroosterde mouten, koffie, geroosterd brood, chocolade en iets zoetigs van een donker fruit. Smaak: Donkere geroosterde mouten, koffie, Chocolade, noten, en iets gerijpt fruit, licht bitter en zacht. Body is medium, koolzuur is medium, zacht mondgevoel. De afdronk is licht bitter en iets droog. Subtiel en goed!

Slipstream (2430) - 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 (178) - 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 (128) - 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.

W smaku podobne do prunum - śliwka, czekolada, palone. Zapach też. Super piwo.
