3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 6.5%, batch #186. Ginger aroma, metal, coriander and sweet caramel. Almost black colour. Small, fizzy, unstable light brown head. The flavour has plenty coriander, some roasted notes, cream and vanilla. Good balance between pepper and sweetness. Roasted malt bitterness in the finish. Quite spicy, but still balanced. Nice creamy carbonation, medium mouthfeel. Gets quite muddy at the bottom, but the flavour stays good.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2010 Bottle (50 cl) from Systembolaget. Drunk in december 2005, so I have to use my excellent beer memory for this one. Deep brown with beige head. Roasted malts with rasins and figs, and clear spicy notes of ginger and clove, along with piney hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Agressive bitterness. A bit too far out there in spice-space for my taste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Capone’s. Deep brown pour with 1-finger khaki head. Aroma of dark malt, nutmeg, cinnamon, spicy hops. Tastes roasty malty, with resiny hops and a lot of Christmas spices floating around. That’s not the only thing floating around, as this one is bottle conditioned, like all the other Nogne’s I’ve had.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle at Chris O’s extravaganza. Very christmassy and I’ll go along with Steve and note that odd menthol hint. Ginger biscuits and plenty of spice. Slightly different christmas beer and rather enjoyable.
