Wow, this is one dark porter. Not cola-colored, not coffee brown, but solid black. Looks fantastic, with a thin, tight layer of foam atop. I’m excited to try it.

Great roast aroma. It has undertones of dark cherries and some Italian roast espresso along with a touch of cacao. Flavor has a mild roast to it. Some bitter chocolate undergirds it as well. It is exceptionally smooth, with a lightly sweet finish. This was incredible! My favorite of the Einstok brews.

From a 330 mL bottle, thanks Chuck,

A: Pours a super deep brown with a light tan head, solid retention and lace.

S: Very nice smell. Some minor smoke, molasses, licorice and toffee.

T: Lots of sweet creamed coffee, dark chocolate, a classic English style flavour.

M: Medium-bodied, soft carbonation, light on the palate, a drinkable beer, clean finish.

O: My first beer ever from Iceland, this is really impressive. Up there with the classics of England.

Picked up a bottle from Pizza Port bottle shop in Carlsbad, CA - Great store.

This embodies a porter to me, I feel like I could drink it all day.

A -Poured into New Belgium Globe glass. Very minimal head, with a deep brown color, keeping the light out with a slight red fringe at the top.

S - This beer smells great to me, a little smokey with a toasted coffee scent.

T & M - Mouthfeel holds carbonation up front, once it warms up it mellows nicely in the middle. This beer tastes like a porter should. It doesn't grip the tongue but blends to it. Coffee notes are definitely there but just the perfect ammount. It's slightly smokey, nutty, with good malt character.

Overall - This beer is a great example of a porter, it has wonderful flavors, it's refreshing, and if you see a bottle pick it up and enjoy.. Just remember to buy 2 :)

Poured from a bottle into a goblet glass. A short-lived head that dissipates very quickly. Pretty dark, but you can see a little ruby when held up to light.

Nice aroma, smoky. What I want from a porter.

Taste is surprisingly reminiscent of an English porter (though this is supposedly an American porter). Nutty and toffee malt flavors dominate at first. Finish ends up very balanced, and a rather balanced but slightly hoppy aftertaste lives on. American Porter indeed!

This is very enjoyable. My first response upon seeing this beer on the shelf was "there is a brewery in Iceland?" Nice job, Einstok.

American Porter - what a load of shite.

This "Porter" was poured from a 330ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a dark brown/black colour with a small and quickly fading head.

Smells quite dark and sweet, very malty.

Tastes quite sweet and dry, dark with some roasted flavour on the finish.

Overall a very nice beer, very tasty and fairly drinkable.
