AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2007
Opaque, absolutely black with a thick, brown head (too dark historically). Beautiful sweetness and soft, dark fruit coupled with some fresh brewed coffee in the background. This beer is screaming that it is an imperial stout already. Flavor has the malt/hop balance of an english brown porter with its seductive, soft palate and solid bitterness that promotes drinkability. Good, dark fruit flavor combines with a touch of sweetness, some unroasty, dark malt flavors (this is good) and a smack of bitterness that shows itself profoundly then allows the yeast and malt to shine into a lengthy finish. After drinking this I was highly anticipating their Imperial Stout.

Pours deep dark with medium compact brown head. Nose is slightly hoppy. Aromas are roasted malts, coffee, caramel and some chocolate. Oily texture, low carbonation. Medium sweet finish. Okay, but I expected more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kolor czarny, czarny jak ... Piana na bogato, solidna, z drobnymi p?cherzykami, kolor jasno br?zowy, przypomina troch? mus czekoladowy. W szkle pozostaje wystarczaj?co d?ugo by móc nacieszy? si? jej kolorem i faktur?. Aromat to po prostu poezja, palone s?ody, lekko w?dzone, oczywi?cie kawa, karmel, troch? ?ywicy, ?liwki suszone i sma?one, rum, ale te? delikatna kwaskowato?? herbaciana, gorzka czekolada. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie mamy wyra?n? czarn? kaw?, gorzk? czekolad?, delikatne nuty rumu, ?liwki. W czasie degustacji towarzyszy nam odrobina kwaskowato?ci tym razem jakby owocowa, W smaku nuty w?dzone jak i ?ywiczne s? nieznaczne. Bardzo ciekawe jest to, ?e ka?dy ?yk przynosi inne wra?enia smakowe. Goryczka satysfakcjonuj?ca, nie zalega, pyszna. Generalnie ca?e piwo jest bardzo smaczne. Porter z Nøgne Ø jest do?? ter?ciwy i t?usty, do tego stopnia, ?e w szkle nie pozosta? ?lad po pianie (nawiasem mówi?c, w szkle nie zosta?o nic :D), alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty, ca?o?? idealnie zbalansowana.
