The Nommo are ancestral spirits worshipped by the Dogon tribe of the West African nation of Mali. The name is derived from a Dogon word meaning ‘to make one drink.’ No, really. Nommo, usually described as amphibious, hermaphroditic, fish-like creatures, were created by the sky god Amma, who caused them to multiply by splitting them into doubled sets of twins. Seeing a trend here? Maybe it’s farfetched, but we think the story of the Nommo makes this whole enterprise a little more fun and interesting.

Our Nommo has a brilliant deep amber color and a sweet caramel malt profile. This beer showcases the coriander, cinnamon, and star anise used in the kettle, complementing them with clove and banana notes contributed by the Belgian yeast. The rich complexity of Nommo’s flavor makes it a worthy partner to a variety of meats and game, as well as aged or aromatic cheeses.

Bottle from the pre-GABF party: Murky and dark amber with a beige-yellow head. Fruity nose (baked apples). Mouthfeel was creamy and weighty up front; lively carbonation toward the finish. Malts were pretty tasty, with elements of cooked brown sugar, toffee, dark caramel and faint cocoa. Fruity alcohol and fermented apple juice surfaces in the finish and lingers a little. Hints of earthy, estery yeast and some spices (perhaps some cinnamon, allspice and something else, which is evident but I can’t define) in the background. Overall, not a bad brew at all, but some flavors and aromas were slightly awkward.

another one i brought back from the pregabf party. if you bring cases of the same beer people will take one home. thanks to the blvd folks for making a great night better. i taste this beer almost a week after i first had it at the party. i remember telling the brewer that his trippel is good to go, but the dubbel is not. this pours a nice cloudy maroon with a lasting sticky yellow head. strong spice aroma with cinnamon,lemon peel, something like corriander or fake vanilla scented candles. this is thin, mouthfeel wise mainly, the flavor is a bit one sided too, but it has some depth. mainly sweet caramel, and banana with black pepper. this is not really a beer to make me smile, it makes me furrow my brow and try to figure out exactly what i don’t like. that would be the waxy lemon mainly. i just don’t like the spices, the way they try to mingle with the caramel sweetness is not good. while not a bad beer, i would drink this again, i would not buy it again or recommend to anyone else. and the alcohol is too dominant.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2006
Sampled at the 4th Boulder Strong Ale Fest. Beer poured a hazy, medium red-brown color with a small, frothy, off-white head. The aroma is malty with moderate notes of sweet toasted grain and caramel; hoppy with light notes of herb; yeasty with moderate notes of dough; trace notes of vanilla and sherry, light notes of tea, banana, clove, moderate notes of orange zest, coriander and candy sugar. The flavor was moderately-to-heavily sweet, lightly bitter with a longer-than-average, moderately sweet, tangy finish. The body was light-to-medium, the texture is watery-to-velvety and the carbonation was fizzy-to-lively.
