Aroma of sweet milk chocolate. Very smooth and easy-going porter. Big up to the Hlíðarfjall mountain :)
On tap at Trails End Taproom. Pours black, with a medium, bubbly, tan head. Mild coffee nose, with some pumpernickel, black pepper, and toast. Sweet and roasted, with a sharp, pleasant bitterness. Medium to heavy body, with a sharp, lightly acidic, and chewy mouthfeel. This is a big and toasty beer, but well balanced. NikkTwist (3345) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2017

Pours dark brown with a white, frothy head. The aroma is caramel, roasted malts and ersatz coffee. The taste is roasted malts, dark chocolate, rye, some coffee and cacao. Some alcohol in the back. The carbonation too high, only when is it gone the mouthfeel becomes smooth and pleasant. The body is medium. Quite nice. kithowell (3) - - NOV 5, 2017 does not count
Black in color. Clear notes of coffee and dark chocolate toasty and rich. Medium body that is robust yet smooth on the palate.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2017 Næsten sort. Skummet forsvinder lidt hurtigt.
Første snif gav lidt metal. Det stoppede heldigvis. Ellers er det ristet malt og kaffe i næsen.
Overraskende let i munden. Smager godt og ret ukompliceret. thomat (4145) - Gï¿½teborg, SWEDEN - OCT 10, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2017 On tap @ Skaal. Dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Malty and roasted tones. Malt, coffee, fruit and hops. Medium body with a bitter/ malty finish. AWISLguy (3327) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2017
12oz bottle from Total Wine in Brookfield. Pours almost black with a dark beige spongey head leaving a lot of streaky lace. Aroma has dark chocolate and toffee, plus some molasses, some light roast, and some lactose. Taste is of bakers chocolate, sweet toffee, some roastiness with burnt espresso notes, a bit of molasses and some dark fruit. Super dry. Nicely bittersweet and smooooooth. Oats in there too? Medium bodied, there is little alcohol presence and the blend is quite good. Finishes bone dry and solidly in the center of that bitter-sweet scale. This is a soft tasty brew. 14 HuskerTan (2398) - Ravenna, Nebraska, USA - OCT 2, 2017
A- Woody, smoke, dark fruits, toasted vanilla, subtle coffee.
A- Dark brown color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Char, wood, smoke, toasted marshmallow, dark fruits, roasty, mild bitterness, subtle espresso.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, complex finish.
O- For almost 2 years old, I figured this might lose it's luster. Sure enough, it was good as all get out. Starts out with sweet dark fruits and some wood notes, then fades into some char and smoked earthy notes, and finally finishes with some toasted marshmallow as it warms. Really good stuff.
