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.

A little light in body and the ONLY disappointing beer I’ve had made by them. Dates in the aroma. Head disappears quick! Taste of molasses and dates.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2014
Rated on 02-04-2012. (Corked and caged bottle, Batch Number/2011-2, Best By Date: 04-2012) When poured, this beer’s appearance is a medium sized frothy, very fizzy beige head that mostly diminishes, hazy reddish brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, yeast. sweet, bananas, spicy, clove, and cinnamon. The flavor is sweet, caramel malt, spicy, cinnamon, and coriander. The mouthfeel of this beer is tingly carbonation and this beer is light-medium bodied. This is a very quaffable beer and the various flavors come together very well. This beer has a cinnamon aftertaste and this beer is worth trying.

Hard to rate considering bottle was 3.5 years old. It actually stands up pretty well. Molasses was subtle, and very little oxidation occurred from what I could tell. Nice brew.
