COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

mcberko (16005) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
750mL bottle, pours a chestnut amber brown with a big beige head. Aroma of toasted chestnuts, spices, herbal notes, and some subtle dark fruits. Flavour of herbs, various spices, some slight fruity sweetness and toasted nuts. Odd funk to this one, not exactly reminiscent of a dubbel. Semi-complex, but odd spices / herbs in here. Decent.

bhensonb (14604) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 6, 2011
750 c&c from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours hazy ruddy copper with a 4 finger creamy beige head. All I can get for aroma is a bit of banana - too much foam. Full bodied. Frothy carb. Theres banana, cinnamon, anise and some gritty roast malt. Its almost earthy when the other flavors depart. Its just a wee bit on the sweet side. But theres so much other flavor, and enough bitterness, that the malt is not overstated. A really good ale.

Flavors of carmel, coriander, fruittiness, cinnamon and light brown sugar with a crisp lingering cinnamon finish. Actually kinda wierd for a Dubbel.

Tmoney99 (13997) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with a large frothy light brown head that was fully lasting and produced good lacing. Moderate to heavy malt, complex spice and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Full balanced bittersweet flavor with the same full finish with a very small alcohol tone. Good well balanced brew.
