Bottle. Dark as the darkest night with a brown and medium thick head. The taste is very full and well balanced, a little roasted. I agree with the commercial deScription that it should be enjoyed by itself, it’s close to liquid bread but a very good one. I enjoyed it!

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Bottle. Split with NachlamSie. Pours dense black, with a bit of a ruby tinge around the edges. A small tan head sits atop. The aroma is a huge roasty blast, full of dark chocolate and coffee. Flavor is bitter and dry roast and cocoa. Aroma led me to believe that the mouthfeel would be enormous, but it’s actually pretty average for the style. Very tasty.

NachlamSie (3108) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Bottle split with Muenster. Pours black with some ruby tints. Head is a little small and tan. The aroma is hugely chewy and roasty. Lots of toasted notes up front, coffee, chocolate, toffee. Slightly ashy with a great earthiness in the flavor. Mouthfeel is right on. Actually, it dries out with a nutty finish. I like that. It’s a little grainy in the flavor, but still really good. The heavy roasted character and dark fruit sweetness pull everything together. I’m picking up some brown sugar, twigs, and a thin sourness. Very solid.

Beaver (1547) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 11, 2007
500ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is chocolate, coffee and grains and some roasted hops and burnt plastic.

The flavor is chocolate malts, nuts, and some coffee and a little anise with a little plastic at the end. It has a dry finish with some hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium and slightly watery.

Overall, it’s a decent porter, but has some off notes.

CheesedMan (555) - Saint Cloud, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2007
Perhaps I should have tasted this one after the Olfabriken. The roasted aroma is very evident, touch of cocoa. Flavor continues with the roasted theme, finishing with a touch of bitterness. Palate seemed a bit think for me, but I think I have tasted out of order. Very solid.

Dark brown pour with a frothy light brown head, the flavor is dry & roasty. The body is medium and a tad thin on the palate. It’s nice & easy drinking.

Dorqui (2156) - Brescia, ITALY - JUN 3, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled. Creamy head, clearly nut color. Intense black color; much mushy, compact and dense. Winy and torrefy aroma with notes of must, American grape and braced malt. Much velvety but determined taste and at the same time solid. Aromas of coffee, burned wood and red wine. Extended and much resistant final.
Thanks to mabjork for this beer.

Like the other Nogne beer I sampled, this one has that nice hoppy bitterness, except this time its more subdued and has a somewhat fruit-laden sweet tone with dark malts and chocolate hints. I enjoyed this beer by myself at Cooper’s Seafood after packing stuff for my 84 year old grandma. I feel the alcohol is well hidden but was tired so maybe it wasn’t as noticeable.
