The Nommo are ancestral spirits worshipped by the Dogon tribe of the West African nation of Mali. The name is derived from a Dogon word meaning to make one drink. No, really. Nommo, usually described as amphibious, hermaphroditic, fish-like creatures, were created by the sky god Amma, who caused them to multiply by splitting them into doubled sets of twins. Seeing a trend here? Maybe its farfetched, but we think the story of the Nommo makes this whole enterprise a little more fun and interesting.

Our Nommo has a brilliant deep amber color and a sweet caramel malt profile. This beer showcases the coriander, cinnamon, and star anise used in the kettle, complementing them with clove and banana notes contributed by the Belgian yeast. The rich complexity of Nommos flavor makes it a worthy partner to a variety of meats and game, as well as aged or aromatic cheeses.

notalush (5836) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2013
Lightly hazy dark amber - fizzy carbonation/lace - nose is fairly sweet, with notes of raisin, toffee, dark bread, light cinnamon and faint clove - rather high in abv for the style - the thin/watery body and texture just make it all the more apparent just how strong it is, too, letting the alcohol come through too much - flavors of overripe dark fruits, light melanoidin character, clean but high sweetness - dries out slightly through the middle as mild earthy phenols and strong spiciness come to the fore - finish is moderately spicy, with a lot of lingering alcohol heat - not exactly unenjoyable, but kind of messy.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Beer 34 Asheville trip, Thirsty Monk. Medium amber, slight head. Sugar and caramel malt aroma. Toffee malt flavor, lots of fruit, raisiny, bready. Spicing did not come through, but perhaps attributed to a dry finish. Nicely done.

emacgee (4661) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2013
Pours a clean ruby copper with two fingers of creamy flan yellow head. Nose is lightly grainy with a touch of acidity and that rusty dubbel character. Hint of metal and fruit skins. Medium light body with notes of iron/raw meat in the flavor with a light grainy quality and touch of sweetness. Interesting

elektrikjester (90) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 12, 2013
Pours a dark, yet clear amber. The frothy beige head dissipates to leave a good bit of lacing behind. Aroma of bubblegum, banana, and cloves. Taste generally follows the nose, but with a sweet breadiness from the malts asserting itself. Aftertaste of yeast and alcohol. Considering the strength, Id say the alcohol was well hidden, but it did emerge from time to time. Palate is a bit fizzy fron the carbonation, with a watery mouthfeel. In sum, a good dubbel, very much in line with the style.

BVery (10122) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Tap at Busters on 28th. Hazy amber pour with a spotty head. Cinnamon dominates this, complemented by yeast and a bit of licorice. Decent brew.

This cork an caged batch 2011-02 bbf 2012-04 bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy with a frothy top light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a typically carbonated light cola brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was malty and sweet. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start in the back of the mouth and tongue, mediumly tingly at the finish with a sweet aftertaste and a hoppy backing. The flavor contained notes of sweet and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.
