4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 500 ml. Pours jet black with about a finger of tan head. Nice amount of lacing. Big roasted malt presence on the nose, with notes of wholemeal bread, sweeter varieties dark chocolate and a small amount of coffee. Little bit of alcohol but by no means enough to be a detriment. Taste of wholemeal bread, dark chocolate, chocolate cake, and again that big roasted malt presence, with perhaps a small caramel note. Decent amount of bitterness on the back end and a moderate level of alcohol warmth. Low carbonation and a silky smooth mouth feel. Really quite impressed by this one!

Bitter charcoal aroma with some dark dried fruits. Smooth, easy to drink. A very fruity taste with some hints of blackcurrant amongst the bitter, roasted malts. Very full flavoured but also very easy to drink.

Nøgne Ø Porter is tasty and nicely balanced. Aroma is moderate chocolate and roasty. Pour is very dark brown with a tan head. The roasty and chocolate notes come through again in the taste with the slightly higher ABV evening the flavors out. Definitely give this porter a swig if you get a chance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Gooden Taipei. Light black pour with fluffy tan head. Sticky lacing. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Flavor is bright hops at the beginning then roasted coffee flavor. Very nice to have such hoppiness in this sort of porter. Palate is a bit lighter than ideal for this type of beer I think. Dry bitter finish with a bit of coffee and booze. Very nice porter.

Ein feines Nogne und ein feines Porter dazu. Mild, mit Anteilen von Rosinen, ein wenig Kaffee und geröstetem Malz. Cremig in der Konsistenz und mild in der Perlung. Kein verrücktes, aber eins mit Klasse. Daumen hoch.

Taste of malt, roasted barley, nuts, torf, chocolate, coffee and dark berries. Dry finish with some nice and gentle roast aromas. Enjoyed it.
