Richly dark black with nary a hint to its brownness. A cupcake of tan foam is parked on top which slowly floats its way to a bumpy creamy coated skim of relative remaining thickness. Patchy lacing in broad patterns of torn carpet are easily distributed across the glass.

Aroma is of browned baked breads with a light dusting of dark cocoa, some maple, dark caramel, and fresh crunchy cookies. Fairly complex actually, just not as bold and booming as it could be. Hints to roasty goodness, burnt grasses, and some dry hoppyness.

Flavors are fairly subtle and complex in nature with a smooth malty caramel front. Chocolate takes up the middle and kinda builds from there where the finish grabs most of it copmplexity. Roasty, toasty grasses, and leafy hops bitter it up with a slow dark fruity tang of date and raisin left on the lips as the palate streams a bit from roasty esters of alcohol and bittering chocolate. Inescapable finish! It makes the whole thing worth every sip.

Body is quite creamy, bold, a bit tangy, lasting, and nearly full. Especially as it grows. Each sip gains more and more girth and remains more and more each time too. Nicely handled roastyness balanced with dark tangy stuff and chocolate. And again the finsih pulls it all together in fun display of complex hops, dryness, tang, and leftover roasted fluff.

Another keeper from Nogne outta Norway! A very drinkable and complex porter. Yum!
