Nogne Imperial Rye Porter is a rich black brown brew with a thin head of medium brown bubbles. The nose is Rich roasted malt, dark chocolate and a crisp floral hops over all of it. Taste is creamy and crisply sweet over a rich malt base of toasted caramelized grains. Finishes with good roasted chocolate flavor. body is somewhat creamy and fluid. very nice beer.

Pullo Alkosta. Kaattu snifteriin sysimustana ja melko paksuna, noin sormen vahvuisen vaahdon suojaamana. Tuoksussa päällimmäisenä on suklaisuus, jonka seurana on vahvaa maitokaakaota sekä salmiakkia. Alta tulee hieman rukiin omaan nenään hieman hapan viljaisuus. Moniulotteinen tuoksu. Maussa rukiin hapan viljaisuus ja mausteisuus tulee selvemmin esiin, nyt kaakao ja suklaa ovat taustalla, vaikka lopussa nousevat enemmän esiin. Jonkin verran tiettyä tammisuuttakin on mukana. Suutuntuma on täyteläinen, lähes pureskeltavan öljyinen ja keskiasteisesti humaloitu ja pitkään kestävä. Upean tuoksun jälkeen maun liika rukiisuus oli lievä pettymys, mutta hyvä imperial porter on kuitenkin kyseessä. Ruis tuo omasta mielestä tuhtiutta runkoon ja näin vahvaan olueen tuo täyteläisyys sopii oikein hyvin.

Bottled. Black beer, creamy mocha head. Syrupy malt aroma, spicy rye bread, slight smokiness, light fruitiness. Slick, rich maltiness, some dark chocolate, spiciness of rye. Bready roastedness. Full bodied, silky smooth texture, low carbonation. Good stuff.

Svesse (6843) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2015
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 3 Oct 2014) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of strong black coffee, cacao, liquorice and dark rye bread. Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, crisp-bread and a generous roasted coffee bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. The rye adds a slight spiciness to this imperial porter. Lots of taste, solid and quite powerful, but still in very good balance. Excellent beer!

Ihmeellinen metsän aluskasvillisuus maussa. Hyvä alku, kitkerä loppu. Jotenkin hyvä, mutta vain jotenkin.

Looks like a perfect porter and smells like one. Taste is heavily roasted malt, dried fruit, coffee, a decent bit of booze and I swear a bit of rye spiciness. Palate is heavy like a stout. Not your typical porter, and very good.
