A collaboration brew between the famous Norvegian brewery "Nogne Ø" and the French craft brewery "Pays Flamand". The result is a black IPA infused with juniper berries.

The Sampler, Brooklyn 11.2 ounce: Pours dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma is fruity, a bit yeasty, with minimal roast, and some hops. Taste isn’t quite in the territory of a black IPA. Certainly porter with something extra better fits this beer. The hoppiness is pretty light. The berry and fruity tastes are comparatively stronger. The roast is light. There is a light chocolate undertone. Dark bread is certainly there in greatest force.

Nydelig duft av kaffe, lakris, sjokolade og frukter. Dyp sort farge. Tykt tett brunt skum, heng langs kant. Nydellig smak av frukter, kaffe, sjokolade og en litt skarp lakrismak. Drikkes gjerne igjen.

Bottle courtesy of Andy. Pours a deep brown with thin brown lacing. Aroma is banana, roast, and light sharpie. Very strange nose overall. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of medium with sharp roast, oak and sharpie marker.

Rich roast malt flavor, but not "bitter roasty". A dark aged fruit note, a tangy quality. Some hop bitterness in the middle. Dark and murky brown color. The juniper pokes out in the finish, just enough to notice and to add accent to the beer, but not enough to create imbalance. An interesting and fairly complex beer.

solidfunk (4012) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 2, 2014
A very dry porter with some salty notes. Very bitter, salty dark chocolate. Pours black with good head and lacing. Bitter finish. No sense of caramel. Toasty malt evident with faint hint of toastiness. Tap at Churchkey.

4oz pour at Churchkey’s Nogne O Tap Takeover. Pours a watery, deep brown with one ring of grey head. Nose is odd, licorice, herbs, mild juniper, some soap, smoke, some bread. Flavor has some bread, soap, herbs, licorice, a little bit of smoke, earthy. Soapy finish.

jgb9348 (4738) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2014
Nice dark brown coloured body with a muddy, hazy glow and a nice three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright caramel, toffee, nuts, malt, earth and a touch of alcohol. Medium-bodied; Assertive toasted malt with a bright hop note showing grapefruit and pine with an earthy malt bite at the end. Aftertaste shows some robust nuttiness with a lot of hops still noticeable and a touch of grain and pine. Overall, a very hop-forward porter that borders on a nut brown or a black IPA - not bad in the slightest bit, but slightly an identity crisis on the beer it’s trying to be. I sampled this 33 cL stubby bottle purchased a few minutes ago at Whole Foods in New York, New York (Bowery) on 25-April-2014 for US$2.99 sampled on the train going back to Washington on 25-April-2014.

Something different, decent though understated black IPA, juniper berries give it a traditional edge. Fairly bitter.

Sample at Grünerløkka Mat&Mikro festival 2013. Dark brown body, beige head. Malty caramel aroma with light orange and roast, taste of caramel, raisins and orange. Nice body and a lasting bitterness. Quite good.
