Nissefar

500 mL bottle, $7.99 from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Batch NR 98. Oct 07, Oct 10.
Worry lack of “pop” on opening and this lack of carbonation is overwhelming experience. It is so severe I am wondering if this is a problem with the bottle or the batch. Anyway, there’s obviously no way of knowing. Lack of carbonation means little head and no lace.
Dark coke-like pour which is largely lifeless. Nose is very nice with some very rich, light alcohol, sherry filled character. it promises much, but ultimately the taste is not as good as the smell would suggest. Nose is the best part of this beer.
Tastes are quite licorice like with some dark, dark treacle. Some charcoal residual bitterness and a smokey, burned finish. Although the tastes do not reach the promise of the nose they are still fine, but the real problem here is the lack of carbonation and the slightly thin mouthfeel. Aftertaste takes on a yeasty, Marmite note!
Ultimately very disappointing for me, and expenive to boot. Not really happy with this one, HaandBryggeriet can do much better.
