Opaque black body with a thick, chunky, sticky and lasting head. Rich dark roast malt aromas infused with molasses, chocolate, hints of rye spiciness and gooey caramel. Flavors mimic the aroma and roll about the palate on a thick yet smooth and easy sipping river of tasty velvet.

Awesome flavors, aromas, and feel in near perfect balance with deep, mysterious depths of complexity. Malts, rye, and hops combine in wonderful ways to excite the palate while keeping the high alcohol taste recessed deep in the background. A “must have” for fans of “big boy” dark ales.

Poured into a tapered Guinness pint glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a 99% opaque black color with a 3/4 inch light brown head that retains quite well before reducing to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a big center patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves clots behind on the glass.

S- Chocolatey aroma with a bit of spicy rye and a hint of caramel.

T- Dark roasted malt, milk chocolate and rye all very well-balanced and on the sweeter side which is a plus for me. Alcohol is incredibly well-hidden beneath the deliciousness bringing the drinkability to dangerous levels.

M- Semi-creamy with a robust body and medium carbonation.

O- Plain and simple but incredibly effective. When the Nogne boys and Terrapin boys put their heads together, you get an awesome Norwegeorgian ale.

Completely opaque with a dark, thin head. Rather inviting aroma of rye, chocolate, and dark fruit. Extremely smooth and complex. Layer upon layer of flavor. Rye and chocolate first, then figs, currants, charred wood, and burnt marshmallows. There is a hint of sweetness followed by a lasting chalky finish. Deceptive 9% ABV.

This is outstanding. Get it.

500 ml bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells like roasted malt, dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, spicy rye, and some molasses. It tastes like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, rye, coffee, wood, and a bit of licorice. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and has moderate carbonation. It's also smooth and easy enough to drink. I think this is a good overall brew, I'd certainly buy this again. $9.99 a bottle.
