3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Kris Wines. Dark black colour with a huge beige head, lots of initial carbonation. Roasty, currant and fruit cake, a fair alcoholic kick, some dark and dirty tar in the finish. Drinks very smoothly for all its full flavour. More of a stout than a porter, or maybe an imperial porter if such a thing exists, but either way high quality stuff.

On tap Sorspecialista Budapest. Fruity hoppy aroma. Looks great black with nice finger+ head. Fresh tasting porter full of delicious chocolate, coffee, prune, fig, dark fruits, and dry hops. A bit heavy yeast gives it a lactic bite near the end, but still a cool porter.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance is black, a tan foamy head which persists and clings. Aroma- very chocolatey- fudge, brownies, dark malts, coffee, slight vanilla tinge, chocolate syrup, bitter hop undertones. Taste- lots more chocolate. Chocolate ice cream, dark, bready malts, brown sugar, caramel, fudge, coffee beans, bittersweet finish with just a hint of very dark fruits. Quite a full and sticky mouthfeel. Excellent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is quite roasty with a lightly burnt, black malt character with some toffee-like, caramelly, chocolate, coffee, rich flavours. Medium to medium-full body with moderately high carbonation. Big, roasty aroma with notes of coffee, bitter cocoa, burnt sugar and oak. Fantastic flavour of dark chocolate and slightly over-roasted coffee, with a moderately dry finish.
Nøgne Ø Porter is very smooth and possibly the most full bodied porter I’ve had to date. I love the rich cocoa presence and the roasted malt together. There’s a light coffee character as well, but without any of the bitterness commonly associated with it. The finish is sweet and dry.
