Brewed by:
Einstök Ölgerð (Einstök Beer Company)
Iceland
einstokbeer.com

Style: American Porter

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
With notes of coffee and dark chocolate, this Porter is roasty and rich, with a robust, yet smooth body. Toasted malts give it a sinister black color, but its crisp taste will have you believing that there’s no more need to be afraid of the dark.

Lager malt, munich malt, chocolate malt, bavarian hops, with the slight addition of authentic icelandic roasted coffee.

Porters are my drink of choice and after having the first taste of this it became my choice porter. By the last sip it still was my choice porter.

I am not sure why this beer is rated as low as it is. This is one of the best beers I drink. This brewery has perfected their malt roast process to produce a truly toast flavor as opposed to a roast flavor. Amazingly drinkable beer with complex and unique flavored.

Pours dark with little head. Great feel to this, perfect carbonation, with a pleasant smoky flavor. One of the better porters I've tried.

I thinks this is one of the best beer i ever try, the water is something special feels so pure, and the toasted taste is unique, and very easy to drink and feel.

Is the only one what i can get from Iceland , i like taste more beers from this country sometime

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.
