Best ninkasi yet it has a nice flavor and smell and it is made in Oregon that is a big plus

This beer is super delicious. Underrated in my opinion. Ninkasi makes some malty beers but this one is their best malt bomb that I have tried. Flavor is verging on a malty Irish red ale like Moylans. I got to get another one of these. A real treat.

Wasn’t getting much in the aroma, but this was a very tasty beer. Quite smooth, doesn’t come of as super malty like you might expect. A nice beer I’d say anytime of the year. Had all three of these I just rated from meeting one of the owners in Vegas. Thanks Corby!

Kind of fruity aroma with a pinch of smoke. Deep red chestnut in color, fairly clear with some bubbles. Very little head. Toasty caramel flavor is off the charts! Nice herbal hop balance makes me come back for more. Very quaffable with nary a hint of alcohol. A real winner!

Dark ruby pour with a light opacity. Medium auburn head that dissipates rapidly. Aroma has the standard nuttyness of the style. Hints of nutmeg, pie, pine, and caramel. The malty goodness really comes out on the tatste. Slight pine, resin, caramel, toast, a hint of dark fruits. VERY easy drinker. The beer finishes rich, but crisp with a lovely bitterness. This was the bottled version, and I wasn’t nearly impressed with it on tap. Ninkasi has had some inconsistency issues in the past so maybe they’re not resolved.

An alcoholic precursor blast from the first pour, as the scent clears a light doughy darkness remains. Looks like a fine cola light but lasting head, dark but reacts to room light. Roasted bitterness in a variety of quick flashes pass with the sip. Leaves a that bitter behind

Superb. A bit smoky in the base malt. Nice alt flavor -- doubly nice. I’m relatively new to this style. However, unlike those I’ve had previously, this one has a touch more hops perhaps, or something else that gives it a slight tang at the end, finishing dryly. Really well done -- everything fits perfectly.

Gooney (388) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2010
22 oz bottle from New Seasons - Dark pour with a foamy white head. A hint of chocolate flavor with a bit of sweetness to it. I had this one after dinner and it made for a nice dessert. Very good winter beer. Makes me warm.

This is a nice beer. A rich, dark brown ale with a decent bitter finish. Toasted coffee, slight nutty aroma, faint citrus. I think I have found this year’s go-to winter seasonal.

Dark amber. Clear. Thick head. Big body. Lots of malt. Quite complex. Very well balanced.
