50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 19.09.2009
Aroma has nice roasted notes, coffee and licorice. Flavour is quite rich with licorice, coffee, some semi‐dark chocolate and hints of herbs. Also the Nøgne house flavour is strong on this one. One of the best porters I’ve had.

50 cl bottle @ home. Batch #1074: brewed 19.11.2013, BBE 19.11.2016
Aroma has toffee, roastiness and Nøgne house aroma. Also hints of licorice. Flavour has somewhat salty licorice, coffee, well roasted malt and hints of toffee. Foamy palate, a bit too high on CO2. Not as good as I remembered.
7+4+7+3+17 = 3.8

Kauge (135) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle from Stockmann in Tallinn (€ 5,95), Sept 2014; BB 28.05.2016; batch 975. Pours a dark mahogany brown, while appearing black in the glass, with a tan head that retains and laces nicely. Nose is deep coffee roastiness, dark plums and some nice Centennial coming through. Taste is roasty and somewhat chocolaty with a mild hoppy bitterness in the background. Body is around medium, carbonation very low, texture somewhat oily, finish dry and malty. Definitely a good one, but somehow fails to impress...

adasko (338) - Poznan, POLAND - SEP 8, 2014
It has beautiful aroma of dark chocolate and tanned bread’s skin. It’s pitch black, non-transparent, with huge head. I think it’s a little bit over-carbonated. It looks so and gives the mouth feeling as well. Except that, in the mouth it’s super smooth, thick and dense. In taste it’s also chocolate, a bit malty, with dark tanned bread notes. It’s perfectly balanced. Leaves strong, dark and bitter aftertaste. Great porter!

stomper (9) - POLAND - AUG 31, 2014 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 Rich pallet. Velvet smooth. Black strong color. Not bitter but well balanced. Definitely worth trying.

humlelala (984) - DENMARK - AUG 31, 2014
(50 cl bottle from Heinemann Gardermoen; Batch #1093D; Bottled on December 19th 2013; BBD: December 19th 2016) Pours black with two finger, tan head. Decent retention and beautiful lace. Aroma is subtly toasted with herbal hop notes. Smooth, oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a lingering, dry finish. Flavour is really smooth and mostly toasted malt with connotations of drinking liquid chocolate or coffee. Very pleasant.

Grzesiek79 (3218) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Pyszny porter, nie ma co sie przygladac i pod swiatlo sprawdzac. Bo to czern nieprzepuszczajaca promieni, wielka ciemno bezowa piana wyrasta jak drozdze w piekarniku. Jest srednio trwala. Alkoholu sie nie wyczuwa, ale za to wspaniale smakowalo z Belgijskimi truflami. Sporo akcentow czekolady gorzkiej, deserowej. Troche kakao, bardzo polecam bo to dobry i uczciwy porter.

CacheManyHose (183) - HONG KONG - AUG 5, 2014
19 April 2014. Purchased from Gooden in Taipei. Opaque brown-black with fine beige head and lots of lacing. Smells strongly of coffee with some malt and ripe fruit and smoke in the background. Tastes more acidic than the aroma, burnt roasted malts with some very bitter hop and coffee to balance. Body is a bit watery but has nice fizzy carbonation. A great porter.
