A one-of-a-kind top-fermented beer, brewed with roasted malts and African palm nuts, based on an authentic recipe from Angola, South West Africa, thanks to Henrique Kabia. Traditionally drunk from a calabash, a type of gourd.

(Bottle). Aroma and taste of sweet fruits, malt, citrus and yeast. Strange but nice.

Palm nut beer allegedly to an African recipe. Sweet, caramelly and sugary, with nutty, bit weird but not uninteresting aroma and a hint of toasted malts. Significantly better than the coconut and banana versions but still an overtly sweet, weird concoction.

martjoobolut (705) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 6, 2014
0,33L bottle, BB 06.15. Pours dark amber with very light tan head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is exotic fruits, fresh apple, malt, spices. Flavor is sweet, exotic fruits, malt, caramel, brown sugar, and some nuts. Finish is fruity dry bitter with hints of alcohol. Overall: nice brew, very pleasant surprise.

(Mongozo Palmnut) Bottle at home, 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass. ABV 7% Very dark orange copper to red colour on the body, tall and frothy off-white head. The body is clear, with intense activity in it. The head although frothy has an okay retention. Light lacing is left on the glass after it has collapsed. Fruity aroma, much like a belgian ale, peaches, apricot, some sugar. Nice taste, again sugar, apricots, I don’t get any of the roasted malts or palm nuts but I get lots of iron, could be that the palm nuts? Who knows. Medium thin body, very high on carbonation. Slightly dry on the palate. Overall not bad, certainly the best of the Mongozo beers I had till now.

Dit was absoluut niet mijn ding, echt zo slecht dat ik niet alles heb kunnen drinken.

bottle from the fridge at klub malych pivovar - i must have been pretty desperate to taste something, clear amber with no head; aroma of sugar-coated almonds; thin, sweet but tolerable, nutty, not worth more than a couple of sips

I expected nothing, but I was pleasantly surprised. This is actually a nice beer. Malty, spicey and even original.
