2x50cl bottles 03/2017 bb03/2019 from source, SEP2017. - Mild, Black Session IPA interpretation of a traditional juniper-lautered traditional NO ale, apparently sourcing kveik. Subtle earthy tones of dewed moss, autumn leaves, dark berries and mild fruit work well as a backdrop to a more modern hop bill that drowns out the juniper (faint woodsiness). High drinkability, low carbo makes it feels natural on the palate (kveik?) and fresh aromatic nose. Tastes a bit cleaner than it smells.

God tradiotonal ale fra Nøgne Ø. Fin fyldig øl, med tilpas sødme og bitterhed. Ravnstone (148) - - NOV 9, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2017 Mørk, nesten svart i fargen, men bare en svak bitterhet på bunn. Mørke brente toner, sjokolade? Kan kjenne einer som legger deg oppå og gir en slags fruktig smak. Har ikke mye å si for denne ølen. Smaker ikke spesielt mye, men kan passe godt som en øl til potetgull. Interessant øl. 6/10 gunnfryd (15652) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2017

500ml bottle, batch 1774, from Gulating Ølutsalg, Tromsø. Dense, fawn-coloured head remaining over a dark brown body. Lacing rings down the glass. Decent smoked malty nose, earthy. Dark doughy flavours joined by brown malts, a touch of smoke and spiced berries. Drying ending. Medium bodied. Pretty nice. (Tromsø 26.08.2017).
