Bottle, traded with Palme, many thanks! Dark brown-ruby with a medium head. Aroma is initially some soy sauce, then caramel and licorice, some milk chocolate. Hints of wet earth, forest fruit and coffee. Interesting though a bit tame. Rather dry taste with a light to medium, malty-hoppy bitterness. A fruity-coffee-chocolate aftertaste. Nice, velvety carbonation. A bit too dry for my liking given the aroma profile. Theydon_Bois (19510) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle at home - 05/09/12.
Pours a clear mid brown with a decent off-white head that retained fairly well.
Nose is malts, nuts, toffee and a little woodiness and a pinch of cinnamon.
Tastes of brown sugar, malt, prunes, toffee and a little nutty and a crumb or two of biscuit.
Medium bodied with soft carbonation, perhaps a little over carbonated. Medium sweet finish. A little thin. Holmen1 (5885) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2012
Flaske fra Polet, batch 752 (brygget 01/12). Fint beige skum som varer. Diskret aroma, og smaken er behagelig med sjokolade som hovedinntrykk, men med liten munnfølelse, noe vandig og kort ettersmak. Ikke blandt mine NØ-favoritter. Kanskje bedre til mat? Aniela (4216) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 19, 2012

Henrik Ol & Vinstove, Bergen tap: Pours a brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruity and sweet malty. Taste is lightly sweet and heavily fruity. Tis does have a nice body. Some earth. This is good, but it is one of the more forgettable beers from Nogne O.

Bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. Nice amber colored beer with a small beige head. Malty aroma, spicy, ginger, citrus, orange, chocolate, apples. Citrus flavor, roasted, grass, grapefruit notes, chocolate, some barnyard, orange peels, malty, some dark bread. A bit different but in a nice way. Zita (6325) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2012

Poffed out of the bottle, almost half of the beer ended on the table and floor. And I didn’t shake it. Dark brown, hazy. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Nice aroma, malty, caramel, soy-sauce. Flavor is starting malty sweet, complex notes, nuts, caramel, real nice. Creamy texture and soft carbonation. BottleHound (156) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2012
500ml bottle. Cloudy brown colour with average off-white head. Malty and mossy aroma. Taste is sweet malty with hay and caramel. A bit watery. Soft carbonated. Short aftertaste. benbjo (3) - NORWAY - JUN 27, 2012 does not count
reddish-brown color. Slightly fruity aroma. Light sweet taste with a short bitter end. Average carbonation. A little watery.
As a Nøgne Ø beer its less full of flavor than other beers from the same brewery, but I like it exactly because of this and move love of brown ales in general
