yngwie (14146) - 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)

Bottle. Fruity and slightly malty aroma. Dark chestnut colour. Quite roasted flavour, not sweet at all as I would expect from a brown ale. Aftertaste is bitter with some coffee flavour.

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.
