Nøgne Ø Brun is a brown ale with a Belgian style profile. The ABV is 6%.
Deep mahogany color with a small head. The head disappears quickly and leaves a small ring around the edges of the glass.
The aroma is quite sweet and fruity. I’m getting caramel, chocolate, nuts and some raisins.
The flavor is as expected and matches the aroma spot on. There are some bread-like hints that appears but otherwise most of the notes from the aroma fits the description of the flavor.
The body is medium and the carbonation is slightly sharp, which fits the beer good.
Pretty short finish with some bitterness and herbal notes to it.
A good rendition of a Belgian beer, but not as good as some of the classic Belgian abbey beers. Still, a really enjoyable beer. Score: 4.1/5.
