4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
0.5L bottle, Batch 509 from Nøgne Ø.
(Compared with the new version brewed at De Proef, which is hard to believe that is supposed to be the same beer, so this rating is of the NØ version.)
Pours a black, viscous beer with tan, slightly foamy head. This settles slowly, leaving nice lacings on the glass.
The aroma is really full with roasty malts, toast and dark bread. Some chocolate and roasted coffee as well. Also some earthy notes, with a hint of barnyard.
Really full, creamy mouthfeel. Starts off tasting like an Imperial Stout. Complex sweetness then slowly fading into hoppy bitterness. Long bittersweet finish. Leaving me wanting more...
