Draft @ Stone Liberty Station. Aroma is roasty, a little piney & earthy. Opaque black color. Taste is a little boozey, nice roast, & a little earthy. A lot of flavors going on. Full bodied. Very nice beer! HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
September 9, 2014 - shared by J&K with me and blankboy. 500ml bottle. Clear deep ruby with a smallish beige head. light roast, sweet slightly boozy, very fruity. Taste has more alcohol, no rye character, spicy, quite weird. Average body, stinging carbonation, some deep roast in the finish. Whatever. shrubber85 (11397) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle. Lightly smoky/lactic chocolate, rye malt, and pine aroma. Black with minimal head. Sweet dark chocolate, rye malt and moderately bitter herbal pine flavor. Body lighter than expected. Very good. hirigalzkar (3158) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2014
Sample @ SBWF. Unusually fruity porter with notes of vanilla and chocolate. Sweet and smooth. Good dessert beer. slowrunner77 (12040) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"It’s been a while since I had a Nogne O porter and I had forgotten how good their dark roasty beers can be. Wonderful malted chocolate and roasted malt aroma with some earthiness and spice in there as well. The flavor is not quite as complex, but the rye is a really nice touch."

Bottled 500ml. -Courtesy of Marco’s friend, shared with him and Marko. Pitch black coloured, small to medium sized pale brown head, roasty nose with whiff of alcohol. Roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and alcohol with mild fruity notes. Rather dry sweetish finish. nilsas (4114) - Bryne, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2014
Duft av frukter, kaffe og sjokolade. Dyp sort farge. Tynt brunt skum, ring langs kant. Nydelig smak av sjokolade og frukter som sitter. aleksander9 (1726) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 8, 2014
Pours black with tan head. Aroma is chocolate, licorice, caramel, coffee and spice. Slick palate. Aftertaste is round, sweet, bitter licorice and dark chocolate. Overall: Very nice. The rye creates a nice spiciness to this Nordic porter.
