Draught at Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Pours dark brown in color with a creamy tan head. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate and some rye in aroma. Slight tones of some milk chocolate in aroma as well. Flavor is mostly roasted coffee and roasted malt. Feels very smooth. Slightly hoppy in aftertaste. The ABV is well hidden. Filling and quite heavy to drink. Some licorice also in aftertaste.

Det här är en riktigt bra öl, mustig som bara attans. Smaken präglas främst av choklad, kaffe och fruktighet, dessutom är den välbalanserad och alldeles njutbar i munnen.

I really like this. Tastes of coffee, a little smoke, all with an undercurrent of a sweet flavor that it’s driving me nuts that I can’t place which grows toward the end. Bitter aftertaste like strong black coffee.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(From notes 17 Oct, 2012) Bottle. Compact brown head (small bubbles). Pitch black beer. Aroma is smokey, malty and chocolate. Flavor adds coffee to this. Smooth on the palate; hardly any carbonation. Finish is bitter and burnt.
Wish I had more than a handful of adjectives to describe porters and some stouts. Anyway, Nogne/Terrapin Imperial Rye Porter combines the "typical" characteristics of a stronger porter into a great whole. Very enjoyable beer!

Bottled at SBWF. Near black, small head. Aroma of whisky and tobacco. Sweet with near full body and rounded mouthfeel. Milk chocolate flavours well melted together with tobacco, earth and whisky. Warming really bitter finish. Packed with flavours, without getting too obnoxious. Really well made!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from circle liquors. Pours black with a nice brown head that dissipates quickly leaving a film of uneven bubbles on top. The aroma seems to have some lactose, some cocoa, and a little smoke.. not much of the rye here. The taste has chocolate, coffee, nd the rye spice hits on the finish. This is absolutely awesome and has a great balance of sweet and spice.

Black with a very thin tan head. Aroma is dark chocolate with some coffee and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is strong chocolate with a nice roasted coffee backbone and a hint of rye in the finish. Mouthfeel is slightly sticky sweet though it finishes dry. Excellent collaboration.
