COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Myrkvi er Porter öl, sem er sérstök tegund sem sprottin er af skuggalegum strætum Lundúnaborgar á 18. öld. Dökki liturinn ræðst af ristaða maltaða bygginu sem notað er við bruggunina. Myrkvi er trúr uppruna sínum, enda ósíaður og skilar dimmu og djúpu bragðinu með fullum þunga og þéttri fyllingu.

dinkle50 (1583) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2018
Deep reddish colored pour, just the slightest amount of light gets through. A single finger tan colored head sits on top with lace in the glass right away. Aroma of bitter roasted malt, something kind of chemical too, not a fan of that. A little cocoa as well. Light bodied. Finish is dry, taste is a little coppery. Dark malts for sure. Lots of carbonation, probably a little too much.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2017 Bottle at my hotel in Reykjavík. Hazy dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of malted hops and a taste of roasted malts with hints of grass and spruce, giving a pleasing bitterness. Quite pleasant. Certainly hit the spot after three hours of whale watching.
