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.

33cl bottle, bottled 03/2012? Poured almost black with a brown lacing head. Roasty, chocolaty aroma with oat smootness and coffee. Flavor is roasted malty, even more coffee and light sweetness. Finish is drier with chocolate mousse. Creamy, oily, medium body. Great porter, my first from Iceland.

alteregoo (986) - POLAND - OCT 16, 2016
Piana obfita, niezbyt jednak trwała. Barwa ciemno brązowa, prawie czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Aromat średnio intensywny, głównie kawowy, palony, pumperniklowy, z nutą czekolady w tle. W smaku półwytrawny, tu kawa również dominuje, do tego nuty palone i czekoladowe uzupełnione o ciemne pieczywo. Goryczka średnia, tytoniowa. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, drobne, W odbiorze lekkie, kawowe...
Dość klasyczny, tradycyjny chciałoby się rzec, lekki Porter z dodatkiem kawy. Całkiem nieźle pijalny, ale też nieco nijaki...

Villyzzz (91) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours black with medium tan head. Aroma has some yeast and roasted malts. Taste is pretty much just cocoa that is stronger in the end. Palate is dry with mild carbonation and short finish. Nice.

Boutip (5940) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2016
Bottle: Poured a clear black color porter with a nice light brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with light dry hints of coffee notes. Taste is also a mix of roasted malt with some light dry coffee notes and some black chocolate notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. This is not a style that usually excited me very much but this example was well brewed.

NordicV (1955) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2016
Fat. Mörkt brun öl med mahognyinslag och brunt skum. Doft av kaffe och rostad malt. I smaken tillkommer en lätt sötma och choklad. En helt okej porter som inte sticker ut.

frrebora (9) - ALESSANDRIA, ITALY - OCT 5, 2016 does not count
Excellent porter. In the palate, hints of coffee and even dark chocolate, that they bring to the scents of a Baltic Porter. Full taste that create an expectation of a higher alcohol content that is simply not there. Very drinkable and non-binding as a Baltic; for me a great beer.

Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromas of roasted malt and bakers cocoa. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, bakers cocoa and light earthiness with a smooth lingering roasty finish
