"Our Nommo Dubbel has a brilliant deep amber color and a sweet caramel malt profile. This beer showcases the coriander, cinnamon, and star anise used in the kettle, complementing them with clove and banana notes contributed by the Belgian yeast. The rich complexity of Nommo’s flavor makes it a worthy partner to a variety of meats and game, as well as aged or aromatic cheeses. The name “Nommo” is derived from a Dogon word meaning “to make one drink.” No, really. Nommo, usually described as amphibious, hermaphroditic, fish-like creatures, were created by the sky god Amma, who caused them to multiply by splitting them into doubled sets of twins. Maybe it’s farfetched, but we think the story of the Nommo makes this whole enterprise a little more fun and interesting." -- Boulevard
