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.

Bottle from lonehill shared by getbetter. Dark brown pour with small chestnut head. Aroma is roasted coffee and copper. Taste is very robust and roasty with somewhat of a sweet and nutty finish. Medium body. Pretty good, much better than I thought it would be.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - APR 15, 2014
Aroma of grape and light chocolate. There is a smooth and somewhat subdued flavor of milk and dark chocolates, grapes, and light coffee. Good mix of the flavors in an easy-drinking beer.

Unde (291) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2014
Reddish brown coloured beer, with thick and quite durable head on top with some smallish lacing too. Aroma has roasted coffee, and really strong roasted malt flavors, slightly burned even. Taste has roasted malts, coffee and a hint of sweetness. Medium body with medium-to-low carbonation makes this beer easy to drink, but leaves a bit mild picture behind. Should have a bit more powerful flavors.

jdb288 (354) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2014
Fresh bottle. Pours black with tall tan head. Aroma is toasted coconut, espresso, vanilla. Taste is dark roast coffee, toffee, faint dark chocolate (from the malt?). Definitely need to let this warm a bit out of the fridge. Got more and more complex as it warmed. The toasted elements are spot on. Maybe a little light for a porter but I’m used to american-style porters. Not bad at all.

33cl bottle from Drink Shop, Tallinn. Pours dark brown with a small, tan head. Roasty aroma with dark malts, dark chocolate, dark fruits, carmel and hints of spices. Medium sweet with fruity and malty flavours and a balanced bitterness. Pleasant an quite easy to drink porter. Nice one!

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours mahogany with 1-finger frothy tan head. Nose is cacao, coffee, hops, roasty jalapeno oil. Tastes roasty, oaty and lactic, with cacao, mid coffee subtle hops, and a smooth finish. Velvety and metallic, with flashes of chocoff brilliance.

Very nutty nose. Creamy tan head that left a fair bit of lacing. Fairly simple in flavor, a bit bitter, a bit smoky, a bit sweet. Decent but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyWolfFloyd (623) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Aroma - coffee for sure, but there is also a sweet malt sort of aroma as well Appearance - black body color; liquid is opaque; the head is a light tan, the bubbles are very tight and packed the head about 2", and slowly dissipates into a nice slice of head. Taste - very nice roast and toasty brew. It’s a little nutty roast sort of thing, there is a little coffee quality about it as well. Very nice. Palate - is medium; the texture is creamy; the carbonation is soft; the finish leaves a subtle roast on your teeth and gums. Nice brew for sure
