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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vínbúđin
Dark brown color, almost black; small head. The aroma is mild, roasted malt, and a touch of dark chocolate. Dry but smooth mouthfeel; roasted malt flavor, with no excess of ashes; regular bitterness.
Not enough chocolate, it’s more a Stout than a Porter.
