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.

Chocolate and coffee both released in the aroma after pouring from a bottle to a nicely foam-filled head. Body has an outstanding medium weight to it and the finish has just a spark of bitterness. An excellent porter.

33cl bottle at home from FirmaBier. Nose is roasted malt. Body is pitch black, head is medium, beige, creamy, average lasting, excellent lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, dark roasted coffee, coal, toast, cocoa. Light sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Finish is medium lasting roasty medium to heavy bitter. Full body, dry texture, average carbonation. Quite easy dessert beer, simple but tasty, nice one.

DrNosha (2833) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2016
33cl Flasche. Dunkelbraunes, fast schwarzes Bier mit tollem cremigem beigen Schaum, der im Glas schön perlt. Geröstetes Malz mit Nuss Aromen in der Nase. Etwas Rauch. Der Antrunk ist mehr rauchig. Asche und mineralische Aromen. Fast ein wenig kratzig. Im Abgang Kaffe. Kaum Süsse. Isländisch kanntig.

Aromatic in both taste and snell. Its lightness may be a weakness but it is all the more impressive how aromatic it is. Would be interested in a heavier version of this.

lupuLust (342) - Franke(n) im Breisgau, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2016
This porter pours pitch black in the glass. Aromas of coffee, roast malt and caramel. Taste of toasted malt in a medium body, well drinkable. Espresso finish.

alteregoo (1825) - Kalisz, 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 (463) - 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.

3.6
Boutip (6628) - 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.
