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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great beer with a very strong coffee aroma and a well-balanced, pleasant taste. The head is really long-lasting and the palate sesation is as good as it should be. The kind of beer I like.

25-FEB-2017, bottle @home, from Meny.
Hazy Brown with a low, lasting, tan head.
Roast. Caramel, coffee. Medium body, sweet, bitter for a Brown Ale. Quite hoppy. Nice Little brew. Did not guess the 4,5% ABV. Very tastefull for this low ABV.

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.
