0,5 Bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika @ home. Batch 749B Brewed 12.01.12. Pours hazy dark brown with a one finger brown head. Nice smokey caramel aroma with some alcohol notes. Light sweetness and medium bitterness in this well brewed Barley Wine. Low carbonation and a long bitter smoked aftertaste. Alcohol (11%) is very well hidden. One of my favorite Nøgne Ø brews.

minihame2 (606) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2017
Black colour, creamy, light tan head. Somewhat sweet, malty aroma, light smokiness, some alcohol aroma, almost like bourbon. Rich flavoured taste, intense smoke, roasted malts, some hops and bitterness in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is oily, above medium body, low carbonation. Really nice smoked beer, great flavours and overall, really rich beer as expected from Nogne.

Aroma and flavor is smoke/malts, fruit and a mix of sweetness and alcohol in the finish.

BlazerT (1052) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 15, 2017
Karmelowa, ulepkowata słodycz BW, niezwykle stonowana, nie zamulająca. Gdzieś tam w tle suszone owoce, figi, rodzynki. Znakomicie wkomponowane aromaty dymione, super komponują się z całością. CIało pełne, gęste, ulepkowate, gladkie, wysycenie niskie. Bardziej mu do BW niż jakiegoś smoked. Bardzo w stylu "słodkich" piw Nogne.

metalspice (910) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2017
Svart hvor noe lys slipper gjennom i kantene. En fingerbredde med kompakt, beige skum. Søt røyk i duften sammen med tørket frukt treverk og noe tobakk. Svisker slår til først i smaken. Røyken kommer senere sammen med fiken og vanilje. Tykk munnfølelse sammen med en behagelig alkoholvarme.

jookos (6683) - FINLAND - FEB 8, 2017
bottle, alko arkadia. dark brown. smokey malty nose, like really dry beef jerky, almost to the point its gone woody, malty, pleasant, nice. full intense thick bodied. good bitters, sweets, balanced and clean, well made nögne-y. smoky, nice though, not overpowering but still very very dominant. woody. malty, rye bready. soft smooth, surprisingly non-repulsive despite being high abv *and* smoked. have had a couple already, so cant feel the booze, but definitely a slight alcohol burn in the finish. really thick, but kinda nice clean flavoured drink. one of those that are that well made & clean flavoured, but just filled with everything, that one, if inclined to beer nerdyness, could go on all night babbling about all the different nuances found, and imagined. great brew. basically a shitload of a lot tossed together, but .. came out nice.

MelvinKalksma (1471) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 31, 2017

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, molasses, bread, roasted malts and smoke.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque red/dark brown beer with heavy yeast and with a slight/medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit and molasses; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, roasted malts and smoke.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Amazing idea to bring smoked malts to a Barley Wine. Sweet with loads of dark fruit and a perfect finish to match this.
