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.

hohops (272) - Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2014
Appearance- pretty much pitch black, opaque, a beige foamy head which quickly diminishes. Aroma- chocolate, coffee hints, dark fruits- blackcurrant particularly, a bit of liquorice, some burnt toffee, roasted malt. Taste- lots of chocolate, chewy toffee, fudgy, coffee bitterness then comes through, some cherry skin and other dark fruits in the finish, roasted malt, cocoa powder. Nice smooth mouthfeel. Very tasty.

ianwelby (461) - SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Opaque black beer with a thick foamy head. The dominant smell is toasted malt. The same is true of the flavour. There’s some fruit, chocolate and a touch of bitter hop in there too but the rich, toasty malt dominates.

thmsboyd (19) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle BBE 30.10.15, bottled 10.10.13. Drunk at lower-end room temperature. Most prominent on the nose are pleasant toasted malt aromas. Dark, chocolate brown body with a surprisingly tight, creamy off-white head. Gentle sweetness on the tongue followed by a soft, dry bitterness. Typical low carbonation for a porter. Medium to light body and a fairly abrupt bitter finish. Overall an enjoyable, but slightly one-dimensional porter. Does not taste as high as 6%abv

yackery (156) - California, USA - JUL 21, 2014
Opaque body under fast lacing and sandy, foamy head that dissolves in a couple of minutes. Aroma is mild roast, dark chocolate cake, cereal, and fudge toffee. Taste is salt and bitter and very mildly cough drop sweet. Palate is a little fizzy if not rough. Finish is bitter like espresso. Overall good beer.
