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.

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.

kajser27 (464) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 2, 2015
Thick black colored, small non lasting tan head. Aroma is kinda sweet, chocolate, dark fruits, licorice, some roasted malt and coffee. Taste is moderate+ sweetness, bit toffee, chocolate, dark fruits and licorice, strong roasted and coffee dry bitterish finish with some sweetness and lasting aftertaste. Medium to full bodied, low+ carbonation, quite thick and creamy. Very good, would be excellent if only a bit less sweet.
