Bottle from Canals ahred with Sean and Annie in 2011 or so. Pours dark brown almost black. Notes of cinnamon, wood, dark malt, fruit, and char. A thicker bodied Chiristmas brew for sure. Smaller notes of bitter hops, and tree. Decent.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cold bottle. Opened 3 days before its third birthday. Pours like sherry to form an opaque black beer with a half cm head. Smells initially a little sour but this seems to fade - liquorice, coffee, ash and sickly sweet caramel malts replace it. Taste - I’m really picking up the Centennial hops and caramel malts, bit of ash and bourbon in the finish. A little strawberry. Carbonation is good considering its age - prickly. I would call this a black IPA, and a pretty good one at that.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 500ml bottle on 7 July 2013 (shared by Butz with thanks). Pours close to black with a small to medium head. Has a medium aroma of dark malt, licorice and treacle. The flavour features more treacle, golden syrup and caramel, with a mild to medium bitterness filling things out. The body is relatively full and carbonation medium. A nice, well made beer if not particularly memorable.

Bottle - 500ml. Dark brown body with a fair beige foamy head. Nice malty/hoppy aroma with and interesting mix of spicy, citrusy, and cinnamon hints. Its well balanced taste carries brown sugar, vineous, and oaky notes. Ends with a robust, warming bittersweet finish. Good stuff.

This one I very deep dark amber in appearance with a lasting tan head. The aroma is a chocolate caramel with a little fruit cake. It’s taste is dark chocolate with some dates. It flows across the palate smooth with some carbonation. Overall yet again a other fine brew from Nøgne ø.
