COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Previously brewed by Djævlebryg at Brøckhouse, Hillerød, Denmark.

English: An accumbent experience; that is one way of describing the adventure ’Nekron’. A discrete smoky character from both peat and beech smoked malt defines the bottom layer. In the middle, a light caramel sweetness and the vinous alchohol take over. The roasted malts and barley add notes of coffee, chocolate, and roasted rye bread. The moderate hop bitterness mixes willingly with the whole. Nekron can easily stand alone but enjoys the company of heavier dishes or chocolate rich desserts.

Tap. This had fantastic malt flavor upfront and a pleasant bitterness that wasn’t overpowering. The smokey aftertaste was very good and not overpowering. Excellent overall.

Nose of strong roast, sweet vanilla and licorice. Some darker coffee and chocolate there too, but more the vanilla and licorice smokyness. Poured a bubbly tan head that retreated with little lacing to a nice ring and rafts of bubbles. Bitter on the sides of the mouth right away, with that malty smoky licorice up front and centre, but as it finishes, the sweetness and richness of the oily texture move back leaving the coffee and vanilla, chocolate and licorice sweetness. Only a linger of bitterness after a few moments, and you want another taste! It’s well outside my stout comfort zone, but so complex and pleasant an experience as to bear repeating. Which is easy given the other 1/2 litre in the fridge. (Bottled draft from Keg. 11c, Weizen glass.) Not a beer I’d drink all evening, but certainly one I’d have again!

teddybeer (2224) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 2, 2013
[Thanks to fonefan]. 50cl bottle. Black colour with a minimal and quickly dissapearing tan head. Aroma is licorice, light smoky, chocolate and toasty. Flavor has the same characteristics as aroma dominating the coffee notes but without disturb. On palate results creamy, smooth and rounded, very good compensated.

kjorup (24) - DENMARK - DEC 26, 2012
500ml bottle. A very dark beer with a beige head and some lacing. A little sweetness mixed in the aroma of roasted malts, smoke and chocolate and a hint of hops. Medium body with medium soft carbonation, creamy with a bitter finish. Flavor is sweet with roasted malts and coffee, chocolate and smoke with just a little hops in the bitter finish. An all out great rounded stout. No abrupt shifts in flavor from start to finish. I like.

brnandersen (1910) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2012
Sample from 50 cl. bottle. Black with a small, tan head. Aroma with roasted malts, chocolate, light smoke and coffee. Sweet taste. Medium to full body with a creamy and pleasant texture. Palate is excellent for a stout. Finishes quite sweet with roasted and caramel malts, coffee, peat and licorice. A very good stout. Highly recommended, Djævlebrygs best.
