Zero head pours. Pitch black thick brew! Dark and nasty tar appearance.

Tons of heady sugars. Loads of taffy, bubblegum, caramel, chocolate, coffee, sweetness...

Loads of gooey caramel and toffee. Whow, coffee. Nice light carbonation, not flat, just low. Kinda funky and European finish. Wet, malty, earthy, chewy, gummy, resinous, grapy. Tons of Port and port finish in this one.

Kick ass in so many ways. Damn near and dessert wine. As the label says "dessert beer"...nothing more needs to be said. Kind of an undependable brew, but still great and should not be over looked. This brew rocks and is highly recommended. Aroma is killer and flavors are great too. Feel falls short.

I was able to get a bottle of the 2nd edition & I have to say that this beer is amazing! It's strong, it's deep & it's very well balanced. It reminds me of bourbon county with a very sweet feel & taste. This is a dessert beer with full flavor & feel. Nogne Ø out did themselves with such a delicious brew!

Man, I was not a fan of this beer. It's tough to even call it a beer as flat as it was. If it had been called a port I may have enjoyed it more.

The beer had zero head and no carbonation whatsoever. That wasn't an encouraging start. The liquid was pitch black and viscous.

The smell is okay at best. I get some licorice, rye spice, port and alcohol. The smell is pungent.

Taste-wise, it's not atrocious, but it leaves a lot to be desired, especially considering the price tag. Despite supposedly having coffee added, this taste was hard to detect. I got sweet syrup and port more than anything.

While drinking it, I was bothered by the syrupy feel of the beer, the lack of carbonation and the sensation that I was drinking a port more than an ale. One positive is that the 14% alcohol was well-masked.

IN the end, this beer was a big bust and doesn't leave me with a favorable impression of Nogne. Then again, maybe the brewery was aware of the oddity that was this beer and thus had it retired in recognition of this.
