COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jstraw (1962) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Draft at Jerry’s. Clear brown with decent, creamy, beige head / Nose of banana, chocolate, cinnamon, and other baking spice / Medium body, creamy, a touch thin with low carbonation, sweet but with good balance and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of banana, semisweet chocolate, cinnamon, clove, star anise / Nicely done, but has a dessert in a glass character which would make it difficult to have more than just one.

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Aroma of dark pitted fruit and spices. Pours a deep amber with garnet highlights with a mostly diminishing tan head and no lacing. The taste is slightly sweet. Bananas, cloves, dark fruit, and cinnamon notes. Medium- light body with moderate carbonation. Light mouthfeel. Overall, enjoyable but on the light side for a Belgian Dubbel.
