3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2013 Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a decent, latte-colored head. Aroma is coffee and roast, an English-style porter, but more intense and somewhat more roasted. Some semisweet dark bread. Taste is rather British porter as well. A lot of coffee, some roast and dark bread, slight malt breadiness. Light raisin. Both aroma and flavor are very intense for the ABV so kudos for that. However, the palate is a bit thin and watery, though with good carbonation. Nøgne Ø has put a lot of aroma and flavor into something with so little alcohol.
