3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a thick, dark black with an off-brown head. The aroma is of slightly sweet toasty malts and coffee. The taste is of burnt toast, coffee and hop bitterness. It has a smooth but rich mouthfeel, and it coats my tongue nicely. It’s a little too burnt/bitter for my personal taste, but it’s a great stout beer.

Dark, rich, bitter chocolate and coffee. I didn’t realize it was actually from Iceland while I was building my 6 pack. I won’t send it back.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black bodied, medium head. Roasted bread, quite dry, cereal, only basic hop underpinning. Medium bitter, roasted taste, fairly smooth, medium carbonation. Perhaps a bit too medium everything... Not quite as developed or exciting as I hoped. Still, an Icelandic porter is pretty cool. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bičre)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,33l bottle. Bought in Iceland by Eva. Bottled 25.6.15 BBD 25.6.2016. Black with medium caramel head. Deep licorice and yeast aromas with a hint of metallic coffee... I’m not getting as much coffee as I expected from the description, but there is clearly some. Milder than expected, but smooth and soft. Very easy to drink. A starters porter/stout. Very pleasant, but less interesting than I’d hoped.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost as black as a polar winter night in the glass, but a 370 lumen lightbulb reveals a stunning dark cherry colour. Aroma has hints of dark chocolate and roasted malts, but is a bit shy to show itself up. Once in the mouth, it reveals the truth. Bourbon, oak, dark fruits and coffee, medium carbonated, a bit sweet as expected of a porter but without that "thick" mouthfeel. Interesting beer, but not one of my favourites.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost black cola colored beer with a minimal brownish head. Aroma is dark bready roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, licorice. Taste is a tad sweet and a bit salty, licorice, smoked roasted malts, dark bread. Palate is medium, could be fuller. Finish is smooth, leaves quite a sweet taste in your mouth. No real bitterness. Mmh, maybe too high expectations.
