50cl bottle from Discount. Pours dark black with a chocolate milk head leaving nice lacing coating more than half the glass. Secret appears to be fairly continual carbonation; many fine bubbles throughout the duration of the glass. Aroma has caramel and coffee with nice roasty malts. Taste follows, along with some dark fruit hints. Quite smooth. Finishes sweet with bitterness back, about medium length. A nice solid porter.

500ml bottle. Pours thick and impenetrable black with a thick tan head. Dried fruit aroma, taste is coffee and dried fruit. Didn’t quite live up to the hype but very good

cagou007 (447) - FRANCE - APR 22, 2015
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

PlutonowyMan (104) - POLAND - APR 18, 2015
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.
