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.

The head is brown and robust, the body is black. It smells sweet, chocolate, a bit roasty, creamy. The taste is sweet, a bit roasted toasty, but more darkmalty-strange, a bit chocolate. In the aftertaste a bit roastmalty, bitter. I most like the aftertaste. Drinkable. 13/11/10/10/13/10

Biroholik (171) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - FEB 9, 2016
Kolor: Ciemny brązowy. Nieprzejrzysty.
Piana: Beżowa mikro oczkowa jak pianka na cappuccino. Czapa nie jest zbyt trwała, zdobienia szkła bardzo punktowe.
Zapach: Lekki, zwiewny. Spodziewałem się czegoś znacznie mocniejszego.
Czuć gorzką czekoladę i bliżej nieokreśloną słodką nutę. Niewiele jak na dobrego portera. Smak: Poprawny, przyzwoity, ale bez fajerwerków. Na języku gorzka czekolada, trochę kwasku pochodzącego od kawy i minimum ciemnych owoców. Goryczka średnia. Pijalność umiarkowana.
Wysycenie: Niskie w kierunku średniego. Podsumowanie:
Moje pierwsze w życiu zetknięcie z craftem rodem z Islandii. Toasted Porter z Akureyri charakteryzują akcenty gorzkiej czekolady , kawy i ciemnych owoców. Jest dość pełny, kremowy, poprawny, ale wydaje się dość jednowymiarowy. Fajne doświadczenie z islandzkim craftem, czekam na kolejne piwa i może wtedy któreś z nich zrzuci mnie z fotela z wrażenia ;)

Very smooth and light with cocoa after taste. Light nutty and toasted caramel. A touch watery but not bad. Nice color and the mouth was light but finishes with a lasting linger.bottle

frankliam (11) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark with light brown head. Aromas of coffee immediately. Clear notes of coffee, toffee, and chocolate, nutty and smooooth. Really great and easy drinking porter, perhaps easy to forget it’s alcohol so use caution (ha ha ha). Keeps you warm in winter, expertly done, excellent brew.
