4.66/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a very dark brownish black, with considerable brown head. Lacing of the glass through the entire round
S - Smells of roasted notes of barley and rye, with a dominance of toffee and a subtle burnt caramel sweetness. Aroma is clean roasted grain throughout. No off-notes or harshness.
T - Outstanding flavor profile throughout the entire sip. There's a quick dominant spiciness upfront that soon blends to a semi-sweet, roasted toffee flavor. Comforting and lively evolving taste as it blends towards the back of the mouth. Zero trace of alcohol or any harsh notes. The rye provides such a unique but complimentary tone to the roasted bill.
M - Gentle but thicker on the palate with a distinctly wet finish. Balanced bitterness leaves a tinge to salivate on before the next sip and finishes quite clean. Outstanding.
O - One of the smoothest imperial porters I have ever had the pleasure of enjoying. From start to finish this porter blends with comfort and leads with a soothing force throughout the palate. It's surprisingly simple and pure in its styling, refreshingly leaving out much of the complexity that other higher gravity porters seek to exploit. Again, outstanding.

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.

4.6/5  rDev +10.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
