Anniversary beer

The Norwegian Nøgne Ø brewery has several styles among the brewery's various beers. One of them is the anniversary beer, Nøgne Ø #100. This was a beer brewed as their batch number 100.

Nøgne Ø #100 has a deep, dark colour. It is nearly black. There is little carbonation and it builds a little and tanned head. In the nose there is some sweetness. I also find some hops, prunes and hints of chocolate.

In the mouth the prunes and bitterness fight with a touch of coffee. Lovely! In the aftertaste Nøgne Ø #100 stands out as a tasty and balanced beer.

Nøgne Ø #100 is a great beer, but I would love it more fullbodied. It is also strong with 10% alcohol.
