330ml bottle from Vinbudin in Reykjavik December 2014

I can't think of a better session porter that I've ever had.
It's both smooth and rich whilst not being sweet and the finish and nice and neutral.
Very chocolatey with hints of coffee and liquorice. I could drink this by the half dozen!

A: The beer appears jet black when viewed from afar but upon closer inspection when held up to a bright light it is clear dark red in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that quickly died down, leaving patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark malts and malt extracts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste seems to have flavors of malt extracts and bits of associated sweetness along with notes of dark malts and hints of chocolate. Slight hints of roasted malts also become noticeable as the beer warms up.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but the smell and taste lacks the complexity of the fine examples of the style. My favorite part about this beer was its smooth mouthfeel.
