JorisPPattyn (7890) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 1, 2005
Nearly black beer; creamy beige head, quite stable. I nearly swallowed my Adam’s apple, when at the end of the bottle, the yeast left the bottle in one loud splash. Nose of black cardemoms, sweet frying fat (zoete lies), leafy, even earthy. Again baadi elaachi , some leafy, and chocolatey notes; typical stout-like malt flavours, but without the associated acidity. The little salty touch is there, however, as well a discreet malty sweetness, getting almondy warming up. Quite carbonated, medium bodied, slightly viscous texture. Another excellent beer from this Norse brewery. The Dolle Brouwers from the High North?

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2004
Bottle at Plan B. Black color small beige head and a light sweet roasted malty aroma. the taste is sweet vanilla and licorice in a medium body. sweet vanilla roasted dry finish. To much vanilla in this one, but not bad.

Ungstrup (29230) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2004
A dark brown beer with a small collapsing brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of licorice. The flavor is very sweet with notes of cinnamon, licorice, and milk chocolate.

madsberg (10144) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2004
Bottled: Dark brown/red coloured. LIght brown medium sized head. Aroma is dominated by vanilla. Some malt and sweet notes. Flavour is sweet, spiced(vanilla again), light roasted and has some chocolate notes. Some sweet bitterness in the end. Nice one.

ToolHead (266) - København, DENMARK - NOV 30, 2004
50 cl bottle. Served in snifter. Black color w/ beige head. The aroma is wonderful and dominated by roasted coffee with some sweetness apparent, too. Vanilla isn’t all that obvious. The taste is impressive and rounded w/ lots of coffee and dark malt, some sweetness, and a nicely bitter finish. Very well-balanced. Again, vanilla isn’t all that obvious. Nice, soft mouthfeel. All in all, this is a very harmonic and impressive stout. Another fine beer from Nøgne Ø.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - NOV 13, 2004
(on bottle- thx Sigmund) OMG, this is really something else, huh? You start out with a nice black porter with beige head, I´ve seen that before. But just the aroma; huge burnt malts and vanilla, stong. And the flavour? It starts out pretty fantastic, like drinking fudge and coffee. But it sure needs somethink to play with, I should say caramel figs or chocolate cake and..? After half the pour the flavour had turned into a sweet Malibu-ish taste, witch the burnt notes in the finish coulden´t handle. Leaves a thick layer of yeast in the bottle. Different and fun.

Sigmund (5090) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2004
(Bottle conditioned, 500 ml). The good people of Nøgne Ø have brewed as many as 4 different Yule/Christmas beers for the Yuletide of 2004. "God Jul" and "Julesnadder" are continued from last year with revised recipes, new ones are "Underlig Jul" and this one, their vanilla porter "Julenatt" (= Yule/Christmas Night). Black colour, thick tan head. Aroma of vanilla, roasted malts, hot chocolate and dark fruits. Flavour is rather sweet, dominant vanilla, roasted malts, coffee and plenty of chocolate. A roast and hop bitterness make the aftertaste tolerable. Nice for a change of pace, a decent "dessert beer" for those with a sweet tooth. But like I said in my rating of another vanilla beer: "there’s probably a reason most beers DON’T smell and taste strongly of vanilla". I’m not a big vanilla fan, but for those who don’t mind, this is probably as good as it gets.
