3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cloudy fairly light brown beer with a good strong off brown head. The aroma is roasted with some burnt maltyness. The flavour is discernibly bitter and roasted with a malty and mildly yeasty finish. Overall a nice roasted beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.
