Nøgne Ø Julequad
Rating #1800!
Pours a very deep brown body with a small, beige head that sticks to the glass before ending up as a fully covering film. Malty and strong aroma of dark caramel, chocolate, roasted malt and rye bread, with malt extract and dark dried fruits in the back. Very strong flavour of dark caramel, sweet caramel, chocolate, brown sugar and dark dried fruits (raisins and dates). Further behind I get rye bread, nuts, alcohol, port wine and hints of spicy Belgian yeast. Extraordinarily sweet taste with a not enough bitterness to balance it. Full body, syrupy and sugary texture, soft carbonation. A nice one, but far too sweet, and with too much emphasis on the malty elements (including surprisingly large amount of chocolate), and far too little Belgian yeast. 10 extra points for the best beer name in history.
[50 cl bottle, batch 1634 C, enjoyed 9 months after bottling, from Vinmonopolet Online]

Nøgne Ø Sur Jul
Bottle from Lerøy Mat, Bergen. Pours a deep brown body with a small white head. Nose is cola beans, grains, fizzy soda powder and hints of caramel and mild chocolate. Taste is sour lemony notes, chocolate, citric tones and hints of grains, pine and red fruits. Light body, medium carbonation. A very strange mix of sweet caramel and sour lemony notes; mainly strange and not too tasty. Not bad either but the main impression is: weird.

Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout (Whisky barrel edition)
Pours black with some beige head. Aroma is strong boozy, whisky, vanilla, wood, roasted and dark chocolate. Flavour is roasted, whisky, wood, heavy sweet, light to medium bitter, vanilla. Full body, sticky and oily. Good beer, just a bit too much turpentine notes in it. Will it make me blind?

Nøgne Ø # 500 Imperial India Pale Ale (Batch 500)
500 ml. Batch 1657, brasata il 2 giugno 2016, aperta il 10 dicembre 2016. Arancio opalescente, velata dai lievito, quasi impenetrabile, schiuma bianca appiccicosa di ottima persistenza visto l’alto grado alcolico. Aroma resinoso ed erbaceo, durian, agrumi caramellati (forse cedro), etilica. Al palato sempre resinosa ed erbacea, agrumi caramellati, zucchero candito e durian, finale etilico, resinoso ma anche dolce a differenza di molte IPA. Corpo pieno, non molto carbonata, pericolosamente beverina.

Dark mahogany color with just a bit of tan foam. Aroma has some smoked malt and burnt milk. Taste starts with sweet malt, some roasted/smoked notes, more bitter and hoppy on the finish.

Nøgne Ø Porter
Piwo praktycznie czarne, klarowne, z piękną, drobnopęcherzykową pianą, ładnie osadzającą się na szkle. W aromacie przede wszystkim kawa i odrobina czekolady, w smaku dochodzą do tego wyraźne nuty palone i delikatna kwaśność od ciemnych słodów. Goryczka średnio wysoka, trochę za wysokie wysycenie.

Medium beige head. Nearly opaque deep dark red body. Deep herbal dried fruit aroma with toasty vinuous blackberry notes. Dry-sweet-acidic blackberry and sherry taste with earthy toasty notes. Full-bodied. Slightly hot mouthfeel, low carbonation. Sweet-acidic concentrated blackberry and earth aftertaste with spicy wooden notes. Lovely! This is just outstanding. Shame it’s so strong you can’t drink very much of it. (0.5l bottle, from wine monopoly somewhere.)

Nøgne Ø Oud Bruin
Pours brown. Smells of some caramel, but mostly barnyard, some leather, touch of vinegar. Lacks the acidity to really carry the style, but that’s not what hurts it. It is just dank, funky, rotten tasting. Far too much unbalanced brett notes. I had a bottle about a year ago, and was disappointed. Cellared it for a year and it got worse. Usually they are dependable, but this is the worst they’ve released.

Tap at Churchkey. Hell yeah. Dark brown pour - rich. Wonderful smoked meat aroma. Sweet taste, mild woody and boozy, but not boozy, you know? Not that cheap ass whiskey boozy, but a dark fruit / port thing rolling over oak staves kind of boozy. Rich and decadent. This rocks.

Nøgne Ø Rød Jul
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours brown with a little white head. The aroma features pine, spruce and citrus - especially the first one rises to the fore with fudge and caramel. Pronounced hoppiness is characteristically Nögne. Taste is medium bitter and very hoppy but displays also malty and fruity elements. Pine and spruce appear alongside fudge, caramel and dried fruitiness. The palate is medium to full bodied, low to average in carbonation. Richly hoppy but also nuanced due to dried fruits - a classic Nögne recipe with a Christmas twist.

Birra dal colore ambrato carico/ramato, opalescente, con una testa di schiuma compatta e cremosa, molto peristente. Aroma molto equilibrato e piacevole con note di caramello, pane, agrumi, aghi di pino e frutta tropicale appena percepibile. Rotonda e raffinata in bocca. Gusto amabile all’imbocco con note di caramello e malto che lasciano poi spazio al pompelmo, alla frutta tropicale e ad un amaro intenso ma mai eccessivo. Finale amaro, resinoso e molto persistente. Nel complesso una IPA molto equilibrata, secca e piacevole da bere

Nøgne Ø Porter
500ml bottled10/2015, Bier&Co. - Bref: amps the classic UK porter recipe into controlled ImpStout territory, hijacking espresso and milk chocolate with confident Scandinavian umami/alkaline touches of salted liquorice and roasted nuts, adding awareness of forest fruits (brambleberry). Quite high carbonation for the style, propelling all fresh, forestine dark fruity flavours to the palate with enthusiasm and insistence. A porter with a coastal bite...
