Duhast500 (414) - Cumberland, Rhode Island, USA - NOV 2, 2011
oured from the tap into a pint glass The color is a dark black with some maroon highlights and about two fingers of foamy brownish head and some nice lacing left on the glass. The smell is roasty with a little dry malt aroma. There is some dark chocolate aroma in the nose that has a coffee roast like aroma too. The taste is roasted malt and is filled with a nice dry chocolate flavor that sets back a bit to hang with a coffee flavor that mixes with some nice toast burnt flavor. The feel of this beer is complex but smooth as it goes down with ease and has a silky aftertaste that is more enjoyable then a lot of Porters I have had. This one is one of the better ones.

A gift left over from a previous tasting, the Nogne Porter has held up well for the couple of months that it lingered. That said, I would not try to cellar it for too long or the flavors are likely to break down. Drink it fresh and you’ll experience a nice European interpretation of the style.

Aroma / Appearance - A fluid black base creeps from bottle to glass with a lazy motion. Reddish edges and a smooth cocoa head add nice contrast. After just a few seconds little head remains. Raspberry, chocolate, coffee, and ash waft upwards with a focus.

Flavor / Palate - The bubbly mouthfeel tastes like a melted truffle reformed into a ball. Both sweet and dry, the texture transitions to a smoky finish. The coffee taste binds together the other flavors from the first sip to the final drop. An affordable import provided a good opportunity to reacquaint myself with Nogne’s skills.

Kauge (154) - 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 (359) - 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!

humlelala (987) - 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 (3223) - 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.
