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.

Pours a dark, yet clear amber. The frothy beige head dissipates to leave a good bit of lacing behind. Aroma of bubblegum, banana, and cloves. Taste generally follows the nose, but with a sweet breadiness from the malts asserting itself. Aftertaste of yeast and alcohol. Considering the strength, I’d say the alcohol was well hidden, but it did emerge from time to time. Palate is a bit fizzy fron the carbonation, with a watery mouthfeel. In sum, a good dubbel, very much in line with the style.

Tap at Busters on 28th. Hazy amber pour with a spotty head. Cinnamon dominates this, complemented by yeast and a bit of licorice. Decent brew.

This cork an caged batch 2011-02 bbf 2012-04 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy with a frothy top light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a typically carbonated light cola brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty and sweet. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start in the back of the mouth and tongue, mediumly tingly at the finish with a sweet aftertaste and a hoppy backing. The flavor contained notes of sweet and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

MrNic (15) - Laramie, Wyoming, USA - DEC 26, 2012
750ml corked bottle Appearance – Pours a deep ruby red with a two-finger head that sticks around until the last sip. Aroma – Clove, a little banana, and some sweet malt aroma. Taste – A little clove, spices, and some banana. It has a surprisingly clean yeast profile with a very subdued belgian character. It actually has a little alcohol burn, which is surprising for a beer that’s over a year old, but still pretty easy to drink. I started to taste a lot more banana as it warmed up. I didn’t pick up any molasses flavor at all. Mouthfeel – Full bodied, finishes semi-dry. Overall – Overall, this is a fairly decent beer. I’d like to buy a fresh bottle and see what differences there are.

Elwood (3318) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Serving: 750 ml. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a hazy brown color with a large head. The nose is mostly yeast and dried fruit. The flavor is malty with dark fruit notes, yeast, and a balancing bitterness. Lacks a bit of depth and complexity, but still pretty tasty. Light to medium body.

Very good dubbel. Drinkable yet very flavorful, not too dry as many dubbels get. Has a lot of fruit, mild malt and yeast. Lots of taste for how easy drinking it is. Definitely recommend.
