RB# 2900: 50 cL bottle. Pours hazy and deep amber with tan and collapsing head. Smooth chocolate malt and light roasted aroma. Flavour is quite chocolate smooth, uncomplicated compared to nissefar. Ends smooth into the finish.

Bottle.[Tasting session @ yespr, thanks for a great evening Jesper] Huge thick and light beige head that really lasted. Excellent lacework. Cloudy dark brown colour. Aroma of spice, cardamom, cinnamon, toasted malt, dried fruit. Over the palate liquorish, chocolate and roasted malt. Medium to full bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated sweet flavour with good counter bitterness. Spicy light bitter lingering finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep red/brown color, with a tan head. A fresh, fruity and spicy aroma with notes of coffee, chocolate and their secret ingredient (heh-heh). Quite crispy mouthfeel, with a long lasting, roasted stout-like aftertaste of chocolate and licorice. Although not the best, Nissemor is still a great brew for those cold winter days, when sitting on the sofa with a blanket wrapped around you.

Dark, huge tan head. Fruity and malty aroma... Flavor has roasted malt, hints of chocolate. Not as overly burnt as some have said. I quite enjoyed this as a winter warmer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 l bottle. Dark reddish brown color with thick but diminishing tan head. Thick aroma of caramel, chocolate, dark fuits, port wine and berries. Chocolatey, nutty, caramelly and berryish flavor. Chocolate and some woody spices (licorice?) in the finish. Sharp repulsive carbonation. Fairly complex beer but there is something dull and unpleasant in the taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2008 Opaque brown color under an impressive mound of tan foam. Scratchy, woolen nose comes with spruce tips, Dutch processed cocoa and black cherry pits. Surprising, but restrained, malt sweetness is followed by dry chocolate before a massively spicy, herbal and coniferous finish. Flavors linger despite vigorous pinpoint carbonation; silky texture, light weight.
Bustling and lively despite time in the bottle; a spicy treat.
50 cl bottle, brewed on April 2007, best before April 2009, composite total score.
Hazy maroon and grape-skin hue, bottle conditioned, with a tall, soapy, light tan head. First smel is of damp wool and quite strong at that. Grape skins follow with hints of milk chocolate. A touch of smoke and pipe tobacco (unburnt) comes next. Caramelised pineapple and strong perfume find their way out of this elixer. Hazelnuts, leather, coffee and an airy beach aroma round out the package. Moderately sweet to begin with flavours of red grapes and dark chocolate. Fairly dry with elements of toasted whole wheat bread, leather and tobacco. Grape like acidity throughout with a light pepper tingle in the aftertaste. Lingering flavours of chocolate and cough syrup. Dryness starts to build vinous aspects--oak and cherry pits. Medium bodied with an oily texture, explosive carbonation and some light astringency. This beer is positively fascinating and wonderfully complex, but it feels as if there’s no focus at times and maybe the beer is just being busy for the sake of being busy. Still, a good sipper and really powerful in aroma and flavour for 6% abv.
