Bottle, courtesy of inbreak. A clear, reddish dark brown beer topped by a small, dense, off-white to beige head. The aroma has quite a lot of coffee and chocolate, there’s roasted malts and some dried fruits as well. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Quite dry, with the same coffee and chocolate found in the aroma. Lower levels of dried fruits. Not much hoppy bitterness. Long roasted finish. A really pleasant one, easy drinkable and tasteful, well worth a revisit. 140418 gunnfryd (15330) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2014

Big 750ml bottle, batch 528, carried back home from Meny Oslo City and shared with Elisabeth, Finn and Stefan. Fawn-coloured head slowly fading over a slightly unclear, red-brownish coloured body. Inviting grainy chocolate nose. Flavoured with dark chocolate malts, nuts and a nice roasted bittersweet end. Thin, however, not diluted in any way. Well crafted (at Finns in Tromsø, 09.04.2014).

Reddish/brown with a small head. Aroma and taste of coffee, chocolate, caramel and some light fruit. The body was on the light side and the carbonation around medium. An ok one.
Cask at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours dark brown/amberish with a big creamy beige head. Aroma of light roasted caramel malts. Taste is weak and mild, light sweet caramel, not offensive in any way. Watery mouthfeel. Not my kind of manna this one. Cunningham (8451) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011

Flaske 0,75l spandert av Rune og delt med flere under treff på Nerstranda 9 Apr 14. Svart. Litt brunskjær. Pent tett skum. Teppelacing. Aromaen har et lett sjokoladepreg. Smaken er sammensatt av sjokolade & litt kaffe. Utmerket øl - og veldig god i forhold til styrken. En utmerket mild - rett og slett. Sigmund (7956) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2011
Cask at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Dark ruby colour, low off-white head. Roasty aroma, notes of cold coffee, hints of ashes. Dry flavour, notes of cold coffee and ashes again, the mouthfeel is rather thin. As the Biblical manna that God "miraculously" provided for the Israelites in the desert (actually a natural plant secretion, according to more recent research) was reported to be "sweet like honey", I expected Kinn Manna to be a somewhat sweeter and richer beer than this. Drinkable of course, but not Kinn’s most exciting offering. larsga (7668) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2011
Medium tan head. Hazy deep red body with light carbonation. Earthy roasty caramelly aroma with dusty minty coffee notes. Dry roasty chocolatey taste with earthy notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry roasty dusty earthy aftertaste with grainy rye crisp bread notes. Some butter, too. Very nice. Highly drinkable. (0.75l bottle, Meny Grønland Torg, Oslo.)
