- Outstanding dark ale
This is an outstanding, well-bodied dark ale with lovely liquorice notes and a sumptuous tan head. I think I've brewed this about four or five times now and it never disappoints. 500g of extra dark DME lifts the ABV and makes it even more satisfying. I 'pimped' this kit in August as my Christmas ale with 500g of extra dark DME, 500g of soft dark brown sugar and some nutmeg and cinnamon sticks soaked in rum. It is already tasting fantastic and will only get better and better until I start drinking it on the winter solstice and through the festive period. If you like dark ales, I can't recommend Nog highly enough even if you are all grain brewer.
- One of the best
To my mind and taste buds, this is my favourite dark ale. It really improves with age. The last batch that I made, I had a couple of bottles left that were 9 months old, very smooth and well worth the wait.
- Great brew
I do a batch of this when I fancy something different, not as "in your face" as a full on stout but nice for evening drinking..
Christmas time I brew this, I lock the doors to keep relatives out!
