Habanero (4684) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2012
Bottled. Pours deep brown with a large , beige head, that leaves a good lacing on the glass. Nose of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and licorice. Sweet flavor with a more dry and bitter. Full bodied, creamy texture and soft CO2. An excellent brew. ★★★★ robinvboyer (4683) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2017
500ml bottle from the lcbo. Black pour, large brown head. Big roast, pine resin hops, soft spice from the rye, and hints of bitter cocoa. Silky mouth feel, soft carb. Finish is medium bitter, with strong licorice notes, anise, fennel and more pine. Sweetness fades and pine rounds everything out, with more roast. emacgee (4677) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 21, 2013

Another great beer by Nøgne Ø.
(From 50cL bottle shared with my brother @ home)
Bouteille de 50cl meilleure avant le 22/03/16. Bière brune presque noire avec une mousse brune crémeuse. Le liquide est épais. Superbe nez de malt chocolat, de noix et de levure fruité. La bouche a une belle texture huileuse, ferme avec une bonne amertume. Agréable, longue, superbe. J’aurais envie d’écrire des lignes et des lignes mais la bière m’appelle. Un autre grand classique de Nogne. MrHangover (4564) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2014
Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a very dark brown beer with a small brown head on top. Aroma is grainy, rye and has some licorice. Flavor is very sweet with a big grainy base in it. The sweetness is backed up by a big bitter flavor in the back. Balance is very good in this beer, yet it’s missing a few components to be a great beer. Still quite good. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2014
