Today I’m reviewing a beer from Nøgne Ø, namely their Porter. Nøgne Ø Porter is (yup, you guessed it) a porter in style with an ABV of 7%.
Dark brown color with a mocha colored head. The head disappears quickly but leaves some really sticky laces on the glass.
There is a good amount of roasted malts up front. I’m getting hints of coffee, milk chocolate and some dark fruits. The aroma on this beer is stunning!
The roasted malts is also present in the flavor, along with hints of cold coffee. There is also a slight tartness present.
As the temperature of the beer rises I’m getting some hints of smoke as well. The beer is well balanced and all flavors blend perfectly.
The body of the beer is medium and the carbonation is slightly sharp.
The finish lasts for a good while and has hints of roasted malts, dark chocolate and some floral notes from the hops.
I have no idea why I haven’t reviewed this beer until now! Nøgne Ø Porter is a delicious beer! Score: 4.9/5.
