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

VsXsV (2682) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2015
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium light tan head. Aroma of coffee, light chocolate, light ash, toast, dried fruit, raw sugar and bread. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of coffee, chocolate, licorice and biscuit. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty decent if a bit roasted for the style.

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 (107) - 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.
