Saturday night fish 'n sips - Nøgne Ø Porter
Saturday night at the cabin, time for one more round.
Another dark one
In my previous post, I tried out a bock from Norway's oldest brewery, Aass. Tonight it was time for something of the newer sort – Nøgne Ø Robust Porter. It's so dark, it's almost hard to read.
Okay, bring on the mouthfeel.
The verdict: 9.5/10
I wish I had a better vocabulary to describe these things, but this is one I can get behind. The roasted coffee-esque flavor dominates for me, and the subtle "leathery" finish leaves you coming back for more.
This was especially delightful as an accompaniment/dessert to the homecooked meal of pike fished out of the lake outside the cabin (more on that tomorrow).
Until next time:
