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 :)

Pours very black, more so than I was expecting for a porter. Deep roasty malt character and coffee coming through on the taste, mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Really good porter.
