Henrik Ol & Vinstove, Bergen tap: Pours a brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity and sweet malty. Taste is lightly sweet and heavily fruity. Tis does have a nice body. Some earth. This is good, but it is one of the more forgettable beers from Nogne O.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, Batch #386, brewed on 07/10/2008, best by 07/10/2013, and consumed in 09/2010. The pour yields a lightly hazy, reddish-brown body with a frothy beige head. Wet, spotted lacing marks the glass. The nose is off with a capital ’O’, showing notes of menthol and tart cereal grain mash over a one dimensional, dried, brown sugar malt base. Flavors also give these minty, harsh menthol notes amidst a very unimpressive, soured grain and caramel sugar malt contingent. Something has gone horribly wrong here, for sure. Thin and watery, almost lifeless from a lack of carbonation, the palate would benefit from some bubbles and considerably more residual sugar. This was pretty bad. Almost undrinkable.

500ml bottle. Rich dark colour like a christmas pudding. Flat layer of tan foam and fruity aromas of prunes and currants. Well balanced flavours with a complex mix of fruit and malt. A good beer to sit and sip.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle. Pours a deep cloudy brown body with a red hue and a solid beige, lacing head. Nose is mild with yeast, dried fruits, forest and faint hops. Body is medium, perhaps a bit watery and the carbonation is medium+ Good tastes with notes of coffee beans, dried fruits, orange-zest and some thin chocolate with a slightly mild-sour-hoppy aftertaste. I think this was quite alright and it definitely tasted quite good combined with cheese and crackers.
