Completely opaque with a dark, thin head. Rather inviting aroma of rye, chocolate, and dark fruit. Extremely smooth and complex. Layer upon layer of flavor. Rye and chocolate first, then figs, currants, charred wood, and burnt marshmallows. There is a hint of sweetness followed by a lasting chalky finish. Deceptive 9% ABV. This is outstanding. Get it.

Black body, brown head. Aroma is very rich and complex, some roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and dark caramel with medicinal and herbal hoppiness. Palate is full and really ovewhelming. Bitterness is high but its balanced well with malty sweetness. Extremely nice beer.

Botella. Black coloured with a nice big dense brown creamish head, good lacing. Well roasted maltiness in the aroma along with bready rye and chocolate to it., herbalish to. Good filling mouthfeel. Well roasted maltiness, bready rye, chocolate flavour, some herbal spice to it too underneath all the first mentioned thing.

Bottle. Deep brown pour with dense tan coloured head. Chocolate dominates the nose with some alcohol and roasted grain. Flavours are amazing. Silky smooth with heaps of cocoa sweetness and just enough roasted grain on the finish to balance. Slick full mouthfeel. Brilliant stuff. Really enjoyed this one.

Une bouteille de 50 cl. Meilleure avant le 22/03/2016. Une bière complètement dominée par les ténèbres. Une coiffe diaboliquement brune et très solide. Un nez percé par des malts qui portent, outre la richesse d’un caramel très foncé et cette douce sensation épicée, une fumée latente avec des noix concassées, une réglisse fruitée et des houblons qui murmurent des choses vertes et peut-être aussi jaunes. Sur les papilles, la concoction expose toute sa gentillesse avec ses saveurs de grains rôtis, caramélisés et chocolatés. Une apparition houblonnée vient secouer toute cette contribution maltée. En bouche, le liquide présente un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement doux et une texture crémeuse. En finale, des malts qui se resserent et qui perdent une fumée dans cette avancée houblonnée et amère. Encore une réussite signée Nogne O.

0,5L bottle. Black pour, thin dark brown foam. Aroma of licorice, charred malts, Irish Coffee, dark chocolate, unsweetened cocoa. Heavy boozy nose. Very heavy bodied, oily texture. Smooth mouthfeel, creamy, soft dryness. Tastes of chocolate, some sweet (not salty) soy sauce, roast, light char, a little rye spice, ash. Goes down like a slow made toffee with cream. Very soft. Perfect balance, so residual\cloying sweetness. ABV is hidden, although it is throughout the aroma. Finishes with a nutty licorice character with some pine hops in the end. Damn, how do these guys do it?? (3631)

Bouteille de 50cl meilleure avant le 22/03/16. Bière brune presque noire avec une mousse brune crémeuse. Le liquide est épais. Superbe nez de malt chocolat, de noix et de levure fruité. La bouche a une belle texture huileuse, ferme avec une bonne amertume. Agréable, longue, superbe. J’aurais envie d’écrire des lignes et des lignes mais la bière m’appelle. Un autre grand classique de Nogne.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 3, 2013
A smallish off-white head covers the dark brown, not quite black pour. Slick looking, oily, spicy, earthy aroma with moderate spicy, resinous hop notes and plenty of dark malts intricacies, including grenoble nut powder, woodsy smoke and dark chocolate amidst other. Deep yet not overly invasive alcohol brings as much sweetness as the malts themselves. It makes for a dry ensemble and a fairly original one, the rye certainly providing a nice touch in that regard and turning the focus away from what could have been astringency; those dark malts are taking a lot of room, but maintain an oiliness and a smoke focus that fit together nicely. Not extremely complex, but posting plenty of different flavors in a round and seducive fashion we are not used to seeing together and hence flavorful and captivating. Very nice recipe and indeed a sound concept to bring Terrapin and Nogne O in the same brew room.
