50 cl. courtesy of Man-ki. Thx! Shared by 3. Bottled on 10.02.2012. Pours black with basically no head. Smells of rye bread, spices, chocolate, rum pie, touch coffee, some pleasant alcohol presence and deeply toasted wood. Taste of rye bread, spices, molasses, light warming / boozy nature, thick, some bitterness in the back, bitter roast,… Little carb. very thick cold coffee feel. Very nice. These guys continue being very solid to say the least.

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 8, 2013
Bomber brought back from Athens, GA. Fumes, dark chocolate, and grainy malt in the nose. Pitch black with dark tan edges. Winey, chocolately, cocoa, intiial / light prunes / thick powdery dusting of cocoa in the finish. Medium-heavy body, smooth and slick. Farily exceptional, as a porter. Somehow light, even with the high alc. and flavors levels.

OldGrowth (3002) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2013
10 oz pour. At Tyler’s Apex. good aroma. Soysauce. Chocolate. Dark orangy blackish brown color. Good head that faded to a ring. Minor lace. Bittersweet flavor. Thick body, oily creamy mouthfeel, bittersweet finish good, yet not one I’m getting excited about. Has too much of that soysauce.

Dark brown color, steady creamy brown head. There is rye in the aroma, some toasted notes and light sweet chocolate. Medium-bodied and soft palate. Cocoa, milkyness, some rye and light alcoholic bitterness in the aftertaste. Pleasant.

TET (2253) - Kaarina, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2013
A totally black beer with a beautiful, brown and weak head. The nose is very intensive, lots of salt liquirice, some smoke, liquirice, balanced sweetness, also some fresh fruits. Taste is rich, roasted, coffee, salt liquirice, still fresh, some fruits, balanced bitterness. Full bodied, low carbonation, smooth and pleasant to drink. A very typical Nøgne’s flavours, the strong and intensive,
