Nøgne Ø Porter

Nøgne Ø Porter is constructed by the good folks at Grimstad, Norway's Nøgne Ø brewery. It's sold in 500mL bottles and contains a healthy 7% alcohol. This porter pours a dark, almost black colour that is topped with an immortal tan head.

This lovely dark ale is characterized by a distinguished malty aroma that has some cacao notes and a whisper of leather. It has a smooth mouthfeel and a chocolatey flavour that gives way to a mild, bitter finish. There's a solid dose of boozy warmth in there too.

Nøgne Ø makes a quality porter. It has a great malty flavour, lots of booze, and a decently hoppy finish. I've never been let down by one of Nøgne Ø's brews. They seem to have a pretty good handle on tasty, potent beers.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
