Release 2014@: Pours redish dark brown, opaque with creamy beige head. Aroma: rich malt character with notes of toffee, caramel, peat, smoked, woody, sherry-like alcohol....flavor is mmuch more intense and complex: malt character takes on caramel (just a hint!), toffee, chocolate, hint of coffee, peat, hint of smoked, supported with dark&stone fruits like esters, woody tannins, sherry-like alcohol (warmth), molasses, hint of licorice..vanillin. Dry, slightly syrupy & bitter finish. Full body, smooth, almost syrupy creamy texture and moderate carbonation. I did not expecte something like that... Truly amazing & underrated beer. Fresh one was problably too hard to drink but mine was more than 3 years old...and there’s no doubt, perfectly blended.

Kolor brazowy z lekko zabarwiona sredniopecherzykowa piana. Czuc aromaty wedzonki i dymu z ogniska, lekki alkohol i konkretna podbudowa slodowa. Zyto jeszcze bardziej zagescilo konsystencje i stalo sie bardzej kleiste. Suszone kandyzowane owoce i troche karmelu. Slodkie i mulace, pomimo iz jestem wielkim fanem wedzonek to efekt dymu jeszcze bardziej to piwo zamulil i ciezko mi je bylo do konca wypic.

cirob (9) - Marano di Napoli, ITALY - JUL 11, 2017 does not count
E’ una barley wine norvegese, la Sunturnbrew del birrificio Nogne, che viene prodotta in inverno, durante il solstizio, il giorno più buio dell’anno.... Il colore, come si nota dalla foto, è scuro, la luce non filtra, non si riesce a vedere attraverso, la schiuma è di un leggero color cappuccino e non persiste tantissimo, ma per provare questa birra non c’è bisogno degli occhi, ma del naso e della bocca... Al naso, infatti, sentori di affumicato, di speck, di leggera torrefazione e anche crosta di pane, ma al gusto la birra esplode in tutti i suoi sapori: affumicato, tostato, note di castagna... (amici che l’hanno provata sentivano lo speck!!), poi la birra scivola e sfuma dolcemente e piacevolmente, lasciando una nota amaricante, che non persiste eccessivamente.

minihame2 (648) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2017
Black colour, creamy, light tan head. Somewhat sweet, malty aroma, light smokiness, some alcohol aroma, almost like bourbon. Rich flavoured taste, intense smoke, roasted malts, some hops and bitterness in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is oily, above medium body, low carbonation. Really nice smoked beer, great flavours and overall, really rich beer as expected from Nogne.

Aroma and flavor is smoke/malts, fruit and a mix of sweetness and alcohol in the finish.

BlazerT (1136) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 15, 2017
Karmelowa, ulepkowata słodycz BW, niezwykle stonowana, nie zamulająca. Gdzieś tam w tle suszone owoce, figi, rodzynki. Znakomicie wkomponowane aromaty dymione, super komponują się z całością. CIało pełne, gęste, ulepkowate, gladkie, wysycenie niskie. Bardziej mu do BW niż jakiegoś smoked. Bardzo w stylu "słodkich" piw Nogne.
