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.

kathouse (1217) - Nevada, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Deep brown with a minimal khaki foam. Aroma of oak, coffee, and toasted bread. Body is light to medium with affirm caramel malt flavor and toasted wood finish. Coffee adds a little bitterness but not substantial. Thanks Ryan.

Erzengel (5079) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 16, 2015
33cl bottle. Nice roasted beginning on a quite weak body. Fresh, highly drinkable with nice dry roasted malt. Nice bittered, not too deep. Fresh roasted aftertaste with hints of nuts. Nice but a bit too weak.
