2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flaske. Overvældende duft af jul på den mindre gode måde. Nelliker og kardemomme men med en svag industriel præg over sig. SMagen er endnu mere over toppen med et medicinskab smidt oveni. Absolut ikke min kop te, men får alligevel lidt ekstra point for at prøve. Jul er det jo.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a cloudy dark brown with a vague tint of orange and an off-white head that leaves quite some lacewórk. The aroma is spicy with ginger - and perhaps mint - sticking out. Body is medium with some roasted and perhaps even a little burned malts. Again plenty of spices, ginger and something reminding me of cola nut! Some bitterness from both hops and malts rounds this eccentric brew off. I have a hard time finding out if I really dig this, but one thing is for certain, it’s a beer that lives up to its name: "Weird Christmas". 080807

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.
