Bottle. Pours black with an ivory/ very light tan head. Chocolate and malt aroma with even a small cherry note. Very thin mouth feel with an active carbonation. Chocolate, caramel and a slight nuttiness. Lasting chocolate aftertaste.

Bulk_Carrier (4501) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Poured into a mug, the appearance was a fairly dark brown close to black color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a slow pace. Wafty wisps of lace. The aroma had some sweet and toasty malts, light roast. Some milk chocolate and caramel and then a light coca cola, I usually get that in their beers, not sure why. The flavor leans sweet but a sly earthy to semi-spicy bitterness from the hops makes a decent effort to balance. Doesn’t exactly for the most part. Sly coca cola to nutty and caramel aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Sly carbonation. ABV felt fine. Overall, decent brown ale leaning towards the English style and sticking to the normal quality of Nogne.

50cl bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam and poured into a snifter at home on 5-Nov-2016. Dark brown with a medium sized thick bean coloured head. Aroma of cocoa, malt and pine. Medium body and high carbonation. Taste of chocolate, roasted malt and hops. Light bitterness. A pretty good and hoppy brown ale.

I'd say while not a favourite, not too far off. A solid brown ale with excellent malty flavours. From the bottle in Norwegian hotel bar. Probably should have had it before the pale ale as the hops in that tended to overpower. A good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AnG_BrgNor (622) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 12, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown colour, small head. Aroma is chocolate, some malt and some roasted malt. Taste is dominated by chocolate, like a cheap chocolate pudding almost (weird for a beer I think), some malt and some licorice. Not impessed.
