From a bottle, pours dark brown, almost black. Very still, thin brown head with not much retention.

The nose is smoke, roasted malts, very toasty, a little chocolate. Flavors are dry roast, oats, bitter dark chocolate, a little dough. This was interesting a and a fun one to try.

Light and drinkable, but a bit too sweet for my tastes.

I am continuing the Bottle Divestment of the Summer of 2014 and I became inspired by one that was recently dropped off for me by my local, in-person trader, tone77. I have the Sugarcubes playing to accompany this (optional, but not for me) review.

From the bottle: "N65/W18"; "Ale Brewed with Icelandic Roasted Coffee"; "With clear noteds of toffee and dark chocolate, this Porter is roasty and rich, offering a medium body that is robust, yet smooth on the palate. Toasted and chocolate malts give it a sinister black color, but its easy-to-drink taste will have you believing that there's no more need to be afraid of the dark. DREKKTU. SIGRADU. ENDURTAKTU!"; "Sustainable Iceland since 874 AD".

There were noticeable lees sitting in the punt of the bottle, so I employed a gentle pour after popping the cap. Employing a Bartender's Trick, I gave it a gentle swirl, bringing up a finger of fizzy, light-brown head with decent retention. Color was a Very Dark Brown, but not quite Opaque (SRM = > 34, < 44) with garnet highlights visible. nose had a nice coffee roastiness along with a light nuttiness. Mouthfeel was medium-to-full, not quite creamy. Taste was not as bitter as the nose had led me to expect, but instead had a nuttiness offsetting the coffee flavors. It was like a Porter approaching being a Stout. Finish was semi-dry and it suddenly hit me - it was like when we cut Mess Decks' coffee's bitterness with chicory! I liked the way that it was not so bitter as to be overwhelming.
