Found at Epcot on tap. I was primarily interested in having an Icelandic beer, so it was a pleasant surprise that it was quite drinkable. As with many porters, it had a mild malty nose, and taste followed with minimal bitterness. Decent mouthfeel, and overall excellent, good drinker on a hot day.

Dark smokey Porter. Lots of smoke with a sweet raisin flavor. Pretty heavy beer you won't be able to drink more than 3 before you are full. Great beer though.

Very dark Porter with a light caramel colored head on top. Has a roasted coffee smell along with something sweet. Has a roasted malt and toffee flavor.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Speiglau Stout glass.

Extremely black beer with a thin tan head which clings to the glass.

A definite astringent aroma on the nose along with a complex roasted note.

A light mouth feel but lots of rich roasted malt flavor like a blend of coffee and roast chocolate.

Excellent Porter.
