Smoith porter with coffee mites in the aroma and body. Hard to say about bitterness due to previous beers but seems like a smooth porter. Medium body easy to drink.

Kolsvart fyllig med stort brunt skum. Doftar och smakar massor med kaffe, choklad och lite lakrits. Mycket bra!

Pours with an incredibly thick head. You could spoon it. Super soft and creamy on the palette. Hints of malt and burnt charcoal with a looong malty finish.

Bottle, pours murky brown, clear with tan stable head, nice lacing. In aroma roasted, bready, pumpernickel and liquor notes. Taste is mix of roastiness, sweetness, light bitterness, pumpernickel and delicate alcohol notes. Well balanced. Bit oily feel, full body, soft carbonation. Really good beer,

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This pumpernickel porter pours with a heady froth, highly effervescent once freed from the bottle. The aroma unfortunately gives of tinges of ethanol, and the final head is weak once it subsides. At this point the porter seemed like it would be a disappointment, but earned favour rapidly on first taste. Deeply concentrated fruit acids and a rich chocolate infuse the taste, drawing you into a fulfilling drop. If the aroma and pour equalled the flavour, this beer would be a marvel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Dec 19 2014) Pours pitch black with a lingering dense tan head, lingers but does not leave lace. Aroma has dark bready malts, chocolate, sweet stewed fruit notes, rye spiciness, a bit of burnt smoky malt. On the palate, more nice slightly sweet coffee and milk chocolate, and some nice rich dark bready malt that has a spicy rye character. Gets a bit drier towards the finish, some more roast but still fairly light, spicy grain, a little coffee. Very dry finish and aftertaste. Creamy and medium full in the mouth with soft carb. Quite nice rye porter that offsets the spicy grain with a rich and creamy malt wrapper and just the right amount of roast. Good stuff, probably no surprise it’s brewed at Nøgne Ø.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap. Ochre creamy long-lasting head, thick lace. Dark roasted malts, black cyrup, dark cacao. Aroma has dark malts, ryebread and hints of herbs. Fast strike of liqourice. Pleasant balance, strong and smooth. Full palate is stong and bity, thick with lots of proteines. Long bitter and malty after taste. Excellent porter!
