500cl bottle. Batch 156 (BB 06/06). Amber colour, with a fading off-white head. Brunt malty aroma and flavour. Watery mouthfeel. Taste of roasted caramel and light bitterness at the end. Very good to food - try it to chicken meat.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2008 This is the most versatile beer-to-food from Nøgne-Ø. Dark brown colour. Full bodied malty aroma and taste. Recommended to most food - perhaps most suitable to meat. KI=2.

TBone (11884) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottled
Dark nut brown, small creamy off-white head. Smokey, roasted, chocolaty nose. Roasted, a bit watery, chocolaty, not very brown ale -like, more like some of the Nögne Ö’s stouts.

yngwie (12605) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2006 Bottle. Brown-red beer with dense, large, beige head. The yeast sediments gives it a hazy look, but it is no problem to pour it without the yeast if you like. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee/mocca and some floral notes. The taste has roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and a fruity hoppiness. The finish is as expected quite dry, and the bitterness stays for a while. My least favoured beer from Nøgne Ø, but a nice beer anyway. Goes well with walnuts and pickled silver-onions.(050912) (Rerated 060725)

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2005
Bottled. A murky brown coloured beer with no head. The aroma has some coffee notes and a little damp wood. The taste is nutty and hoppy with some sweet carachoc characteristics. Very much a brown in the US style rather than UK - it’s OK but the other Nogne bottles I’va had I’ve enjoyed more.
