3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nogne #500 pours a opaque cider colored brew with a fine head of white bubbles. Nose is sharp, acrid and a touch musty. Taste is bitter, minerally and similar to a good belgian all at the same time with the more wine like qualities of the belgian style coming out at the end. not at all like an DIPA, that i would expect. Some bitters. a very interesting beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rating #1092- May 20, 2014 - Bottle from Coop. Clear golden-yellow pour with a bubbly white foam, spotty lacing. Citrusy sweet, mild floral, grassy hops on the nose.. Mouthfeel crisp, mild alcohol warmth, low-medium carbonation. Taste is sweet orangey lemony notes with the spicy tang and huge dry hop bite lingers into the finish - Lots of malty, doughy, sugary spice too, walking the line of a hopped barleywine. Superb.

This beer is something between IPA and barley wine, and is closer to the latter. Absolutely breathtaking!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium to thin head over deep dark golden beer. Good aroma intensity of citric and piney hops, a faint fruity funk adds interest. Full-bodied, well-carbonated and rounded bitter attack, good maltiness on the midpalate with some fruity and caramel sweetness lingering before the finish bitterness takes over, slightly homogenous exit. Hight quality, for sure, but not this either the one to convert me into an IPA zealot.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Craft Bier Fest Wien.
Brown body, with a big, creamy, dark beige head.
Aroma of nuts, slight roast, dark berries, tropical fruits, citrus.
Smooth and complex taste of chocolate, nuts, earth, slight coffee, citrus, berries, peach, tropical fruits, biscuit.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, but smooth, with citrus and dark malts.
Wow, tasty! A really unique DIPA, that is quite dark in look and taste, with a broad, smooth malt body and loads of various fruity hops. Complex and very smooth to drink, ABV isn’t noticable. This was my highlight at Craft Bier Fest Wien!
