Nøgne Ø / Kissmeyer Naked Kiss Imperial Porter at 11.5% ABV (C$8.01 at Willow Park Wine & Spirits, 500 ml, bottle date 23-Sep-2014)

Appearance: clear brown with a short, short-lived finger of tan head, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: mild roasty malts, dark fruit, light sour red berries. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, moderately strong sour. (8/10) Palate: medium to light body, low carbonation, sour finish. (4/5)

Wow – that’s bizarre. There’s not much on the nose other than the roasty malts, but the taste is quite sour. Loads of unexpected black currant sharpness make this quite interesting. (14/20)
