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.

Hermod (3459) - Vantaa, - NOV 9, 2012
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.

scarletfire65 (982) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle at home. A pretty standard, but well made, porter. Aroma and flavors of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, flat cola. Nice smooth mouthfeel. A bit of wood and sweetness on the finish. High drinkability.

Rune (8497) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2014
330ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Slowly diminishing tan-coloured head to deep ebony, red tinted, coloured body. Dark malty smell, discreet smoked. Fine blended taste of mid-sweet chocolate, salty liquorice, ash and a little smoke. Malt bitterness to the finish. Smooth oily palate. Clean in the mouth. Drinks well (at home, Tromsø 06.12.2014).

Anova167 (300) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Dark black pour with khaki head. Aroma is of dark chocolate and ash. Great flavor is excellent with chocolate, freshly ground coffee, and something almost slightly dark berry like. Nice looonng finish. Well done

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at Our Black Heart, Camden on 23 Jun 2012. Poured black, with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, treacle and light coffee. Medium to full mouthfeel, with quite a lot of carbonation. Burnt malt in the flavour, with dark chocolate and rye bread. Finish was quite light, some residual caramel, toast and ash.

jamesie1857 (1482) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
330ml bottle from Stanmore and Boss, Sheffield - deep black body, thin beige head, good looking beer. Nose is harsh espresso, coffee bean, black chocolate and roasted nuts. Taste has a black coffee feel, very rich and burnt, but has a fantastic clean and velvety chocolatey mouthfeel. The only downside is it follows an epic beerography earlier in the night. I might try this again in the future and re-rate with a clear head.
