3.63/5  rDev -2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours black, half finger of head, drinking out of a coffee mug, so it may have a little light on the edges but I sure as hell would not know.

Smell is toffee, caramel, roasted malt, coffee, maybe a earthy hop coming through, chocolate aroma aswell

Taste is roast heavy, burnt notes, earthy hop bitterness, caramel and toffee notes in the middle, finishes with a coffee like bitterness and a little molasses sweetness.

Mouthfeel is medium, maybe a little high on carbonation for my tastes in a porter.

Overall a decent showing for a porter here, Do not understand the best by date of 2015 for a standard abv beer, but hey it is from Iceland which is also cool!

Pick it up if you like the style, if you are not that into porters and are just looking to try 1 or two examples of the style I would stick to the likes of Founders Porter and Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald.

3.61/5  rDev -3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a dark brown with a thin head, not much lacing at all.

Don't pick up much aroma...maybe a slight sweet toasted grain smell.

Taste kind of falls flat, some roasted grain, malty sweetness, don't get much coffee at all.

Kind of thin bodied.

Overall, a drinkable porter, a bit on the thin side for me and lacking depth.
