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

Hopmaestro (1487) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2017
Aroma is dark malts with a softer roasted note. Light coffee. Taste is dark and bitter, with a balanced hop profile and dried darker fruits. Light chocolate notes as well. This is a classic porter. Nothing fancy, nothing colorful - just a proper porter. Legit!

AleRider78 (896) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Pours a huge foamy brownish head and has a pretty dark brown almost pitch black appearance. Head never lets up, with huge thick lacing. Aromas of toffee, caramel, breads mild barley and spiced hops. Flavours are fairly mild and not too bitter at all, pretty smooth. Have some sweet taste coming through, some earthy hops and a bit of spices. Notes of chocolate and nuts as well. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, a bit of a slick sensation on the palate. Lively carbonation with a slight warming touch. Nicely balanced, smooth and easy to drink. Very good. Would love to try other Nogne beers.

corkyrory66 (1714) - BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2016
Porter de 7 % abv, pour 16,5° plato, et 29 ebu. En format 50 cl, mon exemplaire provenait du batch 1406 du 7 avril 2015, il était valable 3 ans, et se trouvait donc à 1 an et demi en pleine maturité. Malts Maris Otter, munich, cara, choco et black. Houblonnage en centennial et northern brewer. Cette bière a eu l’award de la meilleure bière norvégienne en 2013. Couleur noir d’encre, à l’opacité très forte. Mousse en nappage soyeux brun moyen. Arômes de ganache, chocolat au lait, vanille. 1ère bouche souple à l’ensemble café/chocolat/malt torréfié, au bel équilibre. Arrière-bouche où vient la complexité, avec des baies noires. 2ème sur du pain noir allemand, malt torréfié, café. Arrière-bouche large, au beau caractère. 3ème au grand équilibre entre malt et houblon. Arrière-bouche d’une grande élégance. Longueur qui travaille bien le sujet mais pas tout à fait au top. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure souple, un peu terreuse, un peu vineuse, belle ligne d’une ale anglaise. Alcool correct, mais il manque l’envol de la finale. Finale délicieuse, mais pas merveilleuse, comme on l’espérait. CONCLUSION : très grand porter incontestablement, qui vogue en haut vol, mais manque son envol complet en finale.

Szopeen (440) - POLAND - DEC 9, 2016
Piwo praktycznie czarne, klarowne, z piękną, drobnopęcherzykową pianą, ładnie osadzającą się na szkle. W aromacie przede wszystkim kawa i odrobina czekolady, w smaku dochodzą do tego wyraźne nuty palone i delikatna kwaśność od ciemnych słodów. Goryczka średnio wysoka, trochę za wysokie wysycenie.
