And although Edinburgh were shorn of three of the best players they produced a battling performance against the star-studded French outfit despite conceding a try in the second minute.
Ben Gissing crossed for a consolation try to end Edinburgh's modest campaign on a positive note.
Scotland back-row star Hogg said: "We did a lot of positive things and it was good to get a try at the end. But we damaged ourselves by allowing them to score two tries when we had been on the attack."
Meanwhile, Hogg's Scotland pack colleague Scott MacLeod endured a even more depressing conclusion to his Heineken Cup season with Llanelli.
The injury-hit Welsh outfit were thrashed 41-0 by Clermont at Stradey Park to end their European programme without a single point.
