Black pour with some frothy bubbles forming for head. Sweet thin nutty and biscuit aroma. Also some floral aromas coming through. There’s a yeasty, nutty flavor with some faint hops in the finish for the flavor. Fairly thin and very refreshing. A great session beer.

500ml bottle. Aroma: Surprisingly roasty in the aroma. Toasted nuts, caramel, light chocolate, and some biscuit and bread notes. Appearance: Deep reddish brown in color and clear. Light beige head was full and foamy with good retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: The roastiness continues into the flavor. Roasted malt, toasted nuts, caramel, cola, and chocolate. Some light hops into the finish. Medium-light bitternes and a medium-dry finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Nice brown ale. Roastiness was really nice. Easy drinker.

Clear, Dark carmel with a small cream colored head. Sweet, malty coffee aroma. Starts a smile, clear, bright coffee and light chocolate flavor and quickly brings in a nice bitter. A little thin but this also makes it very easy drinking, and in a way lets the flavor really come through. Taste totally disappears in a few seconds meaning another lift.

Tastes of yeasty roasted malts, caramel and cereal with a little spice and some hops. Not my favourite class of beer but this was pretty good.

Pours a dark brown with very little head. Very faint smoky nuttiness on the nose. The flavor is quite powerful and makes up for the weak nose. Nice roasted flavors as well as some nuttiness and a hint of malty sweetness. the finish is unbelievably dry for your standard brown ale, but enjoyable. Paired this up with some choclate covered almonds, and it was fantastic.

Poured a darker than average brown. Had a nice frothy beige head that fell to a ring on the top center of the beer and stayed the duration. Smell is just slightly roasty, not too much coming through here. Taste is nice. Decent medium bodied mouthfeel with a good amount of cocoa coming through as well. A nice solid brown ale. A little bigger tasting than your typical brown.

bottle, pours deep muddy brown with a creamy offwhite head. nose is just about the same as a scottish ale my dad has brewed. same exact nose, so similar it was ina’s first comment as well. must be the same yeast or something. bready nose with faint spices, cloves, damp wood, mostly bread with a faint spicy sweetness. tastes bready very chewy mouthfeel with a good hoppy finish that goes on for ages. lots of berries throughout. my favourite of the nøgne ø line that is at 4.5% thusfar.

Niksko (593) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2012
500ml bottle. Dark cloudy brown pour with ABSURD amounts of fluffy slightly brown head. Too much head actually, it was almost impossible to pour. I had to wait 20 minutes before the head had subsided enough to drink. There were also some larger particulates in the beer that settled to the bottom. Bad batch?. Slightly sweet aroma, and a little bit solventy. Also something really pleasing on the nose that I couldn’t pick. Taste has lots of coffee on the back end and some biscuit, sweetness and slightly sour on the mid palate. Really nice brew, almost stout like in bitterness and the coffee notes.
