MOARBEER (93) - WALES - NOV 25, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2013 Epic rye porter. Pours pitch black with small brown head. Leaves an oily film around the glass when swirled. Lovely warming aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malt. Taste is same and with liquorice and slight ash. Really nice bitter finish, well ballanced. MOAR!

umich03jm (2319) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Pours a dark black color with no head. Good lacing. Mostly chocolate and roasted malt in the aroma with a hint of some spice. Taste has a slight sweetness, moderate bitterness. Smooth chocolate with a slightly spicy rye finish. A bit thin in the mouthfeel but makes this a very easy to drink imperial porter. Really good.

Martinus (3341) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2012
Clear black body, reddish hue, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, soy sauce, liquorice, coffee, hops and rough cacao. Sweetish flavour, rye, quite bitter and roasted malts. Quite creamy, full body, lasting bitter finish, hops and bitter coffee.
Another great beer by Nøgne Ø.

hogne (7) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2012 does not count
God fylde, kraftig uten at det blir for mye. Kremete på konsistens og fint skum. Kjenner litt lite til rugen, men smaken er likevel veldig god!

Duntoyou (104) - Kr.sand, NORWAY - NOV 17, 2012
Søtlig aroma. Deilig. Veldig glad i søtlig aroma i mørke øl. Fargen er mørkebrun. Gylden kobber når jeg holder lyset bak. Skinner litt igjennom på sidene, fin munnfølelse. Fløte. Godt balansert smak. En porter i absolutt toppklasse

DuffMan (7228) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2012
On tap @ Jake Melnick’s, Chicago.Black body with a spare light brown head that laces nicely. Heavy chocolate, lightly burnt cereal, leathery, musty, piney hops. More soy sauce and prunes on the palate, also more hops in the finish than the nose would suggest. Some pepper too. Big soft oily body. Very nice.
