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.

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown color with a beige head of foam. The aroma has roasty coffee notes with a lot of toffee sweetness, but mostly coffee. Medium coffee bitterness, but there is also an underlying sweetness in there as well. As it warms, I get some anise, and some other unknown spices. Medium body and medium carbonation. Pretty good porter.

Pours black with nice amounts of lacing. Aroma is gentle traces of coffee and roasted malt. This is followed by a well balanced taste, where no flavour dominates. There are good traces of coffee, espresso and some dark chocolate. A dry porter, this was easy to drink and could also serve as a good introduction for those wishing to try porters that are not dominated by high alcohol content.

Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is roasted malts. Smooth slightly bitter roasted coffee. Very drinkable. A little bit herbal / bitterness in there but ultimately surprised at how good this is (considering the other Einstok beer catalog).

Pleasantly surprised here. Dark brown, almost black, beer with a frothy, brown head. Aromas of molasses and dark chocolate. Taste follows the nose with hints of dark chocolate, mild coffee, molasses, and earthy notes. Semi-sweet lactic finish. Excellent blend of sweet and bitter chocolate flavors. Extremely easy to drink and smooth. Very good.
