6.1% A brassy orange with a big fruity aroma that is lush aramel and hops. A med-full body that had lots of lemon, caramel and richness. A decent beer but kind of too high in ABV for summer. 3.4

I have a weakness for coffee beers, especially stouts. This smells a bit like iced coffee, with a hint of toast. Taste is coffee, some chocolate, and a dry, piney finish. Tasty.

Bottle from Winco. Deep copper pour, minimal off white head rings the glass. Aroma is deep, rich malts and piney hops. Taste favors more of the hops, nice slick body, caramelly malts in the background. Bitter finish.

No-Li Born & Raised IPA
On tap. Pours a hazy copper with a thin, off-white head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet, pungent aroma of grapefruit, caramel malt and pine. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, tropical fruit, caramel malt, pine and grass with a dry, bitter, hop resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Nice, very aggressive.

Pours a muddy copper with minimal head. Aroma is rather muted, with some hop pine and spruce. Flavor is very bitter with some hop bite. Not a lot of citrus or tropical fruit. Kind of a disappointment.

On tap. Pours a clear copper amber with a nice beige head and great lacing. Smells very malty, lots of caramel, some maple syrup. Tastes high alcohol with a very bitter but good taste, earthy flavors. Leaves a strong bitter aftertaste but in a good way. Solid.

No-Li Copper Donkey
Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Hazy amber color with compact head. The aroma is mild, but the flavor is more potent; the body is lean, would think more in the 7% range, quite food caramel flavor, with a light spicy, peppery note from the ginger, a hint of chocolate, and a light minty touch in the final.
Wisely made, very nice winter warmer.

No-Li Born & Raised IPA
Bottle. Pours a clear red copper with a one finger beige head and minimal lacing. Smells of rust, pine, fruit. Taste is of black coffee and is malt heavy. Bitterness hits hard and lasts. Aftertaste is the best part of this one, when the actual flavors show through best.

Bottle from Costco. Pours a copper red color with average head. Not sure if this is a mental trick but tastes more like a red ale than a imperial double IPA. Caramel, spices a slight bit of hotness on the back end. It's fine but not outstanding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Surprisingly enjoyed this. Aroma and flavors were bold, with earthy malts, nuttiness, toasted biscuit and a slight hop bite. Reddish-brown color with a huge foamy head. Weighty and full but not filling.

COMES ON STRONG WITH LITTLE BEHIND IT. better to come in easy and give you something to think about. decent hoppy aroma. dry and a little thin in body. some hop mostly citrus in the taste. this could be a nice base and then one might get a little creative and add dimension to a beer like this and.......imagine what could happen! seeing as one gets some good blonde malt in there.

Bright clear gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and decent fine carbonation. Soft pale malts, mildly sweet. Fairly spicy mid. Touches of dried fruit and citric peel. Smooth semi dry spicy finish. What is this beer supposed to be? Fine.

22 oz bottle- Pours clear copper with a medium off white head that reduces fairly quickly leaving a soapy blanket. Aroma is citrusy, piney, earthy malt, spicy, bready. The taste is candy sweet, followed by a solid bitterness, the candy doesnít become overbearingly sweet, there is a tea like spice lingering here. Not bad, but i prefer Jet Star.

No-Li Copper Donkey
Thx to x-mom-in-law for the continuation of the demise of my liver. I think actually getting back in shape has fueled my need for beer. Less than half a bottle to knock this wordy pile on its face. OKish aroma, malty, weird lemon lime, mild ginger - more like actually smelling a chunk of it, slightly cracked, in the store pre-peeling. Itís a good mix for the face holes. The flavour is a curiosity thing where itís not crazy good, not really stand out interesting, but pretty much just a good drinking liquid. Malts in and out beginning to end, lightly spicy that pops in mid sip and rises up to slightly grab the attention and then vanishes, slight candy thing, bit of ginger, bit of the lemonylimeylimony. Pretty much a refreshing beer, zero hint at the 8% that will make me take my clothes off for priests. Just be gentle, Father...

650ml bottle from Total Wine in Jensen Beach, shared by bananabi11. Very dark brown pour with a tan head leaving little lacing. Aroma has caramel and chocolate with light roast. Taste adds molasses into the roasty, cocoa, caramel and chocolate, but this never gets sweet. Solid and tasty. 13.8

No-Li Expo Series Big Bang Barley Wine
Nice crystal clear copper and very nice bronze body with a good, two to three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of nice assertive hops, alcohol, oak, caramel, malt, earth, figs, pit fruits and a complex bunch of pitted fruits. Medium-bodied; Assertive alcohol presence up front with a bit of nectar, some grass and hay, all finishing with a touch of cleanser. Aftertaste shows some bitterness from the hops and oak, but not much complexity or body - just a faint showing of hops, earth and some alcohol notes. Overall, a rather under-complex and more simplistic barley wine, but that said - it isnít bad, just not showing the depth, complexity and especially the body of a good Barley Wine. I sampled this 65 cL bottle (I hate large format barley wines) purchased [of course from the West Coast] from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 10-March-2015 for US$6,02 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 12-April-2016. No Date on Bottle (Made) // Purchased: 10-March-2015 // Sampled: 12-April-2016.

Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Good raosty nose, with chocolate, and light lactose notes. Near pitch black, with slightly translucent edges and tan lace. Medium-deep roast flavor, some charred wood, dark fruit, good chocolate, licorice, and alcohol. Medium-heavy body. Body is a bit light for the style. Very tasty.

No-Li Rise & Grind Ale
12 oz bottle. looks great, with a frothy light brown head over a black body. Pour aroma has suggestion of old coffee grinds, vanilla, and cheap chocolate. After smelling this, the flavor is quite surprising. Thereís a light but good coffee aspect, a load of chocolate, and some dark roasted grains. Overall: a lighter coffee stout with a poor aroma that really doesnít detract too much from the enjoyment.
