    Simply the best
    Review by Rob_Don 16/05/2017
    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 indeed and well worth the wait.

    Satifying brew
    Review by Richardon 20/03/2017
    I do a batch of this when I fancy something different, not as "in your face" as a full on stout good for evening supping.
    Christmas time I brew this and a keg of session bitter along with a couple of Trappist beers a triple and a bruin, I lock the doors to keep relatives out!

    Caramel concoction
    Review by Timon 04/01/2017
    I didn't have great success with this kit, for which I only blame myself. Possibly an inconsistent winter temperature or my own impatience meant not enough of the sugar fermented, yielding an ABV of 2.6%. Then I found out - but too late - that my pressure barrel had a pinprick hole in the top, so I bottled with additional sugar to save what I could and restore some froth. I ended up with something closer to dandelion and burdock than porter, but it still works as a daytime beer if you're playing it safe, with notes of vanilla and caramel.

    Deep roasted malt.Brewed 7 weeks before Xmas. Resisted temptation to drink before Christmas day. Well worth the wait, loved it. Cross between porter and stout.

    Review by Christopher on 30/10/2016
    Only the second kit I've ever brewed (beer ). I used a barrel and started drinking it too early. It is wonderful. Better than I expected. It took longer to brew than it should have due to my brewing temperature conditions. I've an idea it will taste even better if I manage to wait.

    Dark and Tasty
    Review by Martinon 27/03/2016
    Delightful sweet caramel flavour mild yet full bodied. This has been popular with all my friends. So good this is the second time I've brewed it and it seems even better this time! Took 14 days to ferment rather than the optimistic 4 to 6 days. When I first brewed this I just left it the 6 days but then the bottles were very frothy:-) This time it was spot on with just the right amount of head. At only 4% it is a good balance between flavour and alcohol content.

    an 'Old Fashioned' ale
    Review by alexon 12/09/2015
    This a true porter in every sense of the word. It's flavour is just unique, there is no brewery (large) that caters for the taste like this. Caramel comes to mind, in flavour, along with rich malty taste. All round a good beer, once tried you'll be back for more, BE WARNED!!

    A great successful beer kit
    Review by Peteron 13/08/2015
    My favourite dark ale kit, so dark it's almost a stout. Brewed this several times now. It's so easy and quick to make and will also keep for years (I found a lost bottle at the back of a cupboard 3yrs 8mths old - tasted perfect :-)

    Review by Ianon 12/08/2015
    Having not used a kit for many many years it was a change to make a brew so easily. It looks and smells good, but haven't yet got round to trying it! Patience is a virtue in brewing.

    Make sure you like it before brewing
    Review by Ian on 09/11/2014
    The brew went really well and bottled after 2 weeks in primary. I took a test sample after 2 weeks in the bottle. I have to admit I did not like the taste at all. I was hoping for a nice strong ale taste - but was very disappointed. It does taste like something different that you may brew for Christmas but its nothing like
    Hob?o?l?n.. I did a Nelsons revenge alongside & that was quite drinkable after 2 weeks in the bottle.
    Don't let me put you off but taste some before you commit. It was not to my taste at all.

    a nice little beer

    Excellent product
    Review by beerbellyon 07/11/2013
    I am a grain brewer 99.9%, I brew all my ales and bitters from grain. But I always use this kit for Norfolk Nog as I cannot make anything to rival it.
    I make this for my Christmas brew,mixing it in the first week of June every year.
    I mix as stated but add 500 medium spray malt. Then I put away in an outhouse until this first Sunday nearest to Dec 21st giving it approx six month conditioning.
    This year I put in a tin of Tate&Lyle treacle instead of the spray malt.
    I've bought other Woodfordes kits but I still rate this one very much. and it remains a favorite with me.

But it's brewuk who I would really like to praise . Very fast delivery. sent me a e mail so I could track my parcel which is great .

    Sticking with a winner
    Review by Hamstergberton 21/02/2013
    Had this kit before several times and consistently enjoy it - to the extent that sons, also known as the 'dad's nog appreciation society', consider it should be my home brew 'banker'. Someone compared it to H*bg*bl*n and my chaps certainly broadly concur with that (especially given my habit of adding an extra teesny weensy smidgin of spraymalt).

    Made pretty well all of the Woodfordes kits again and again and not had a disappointment yet, but has to be said that nog remains the favourite.

    Would recommend it to anyone.

    an awesome kit
    Review by ianon 30/08/2012
    My first 2 can kit and all i can say is that i wish i had discovered it sooner!!
    Extreemly easy to make and delivers a cracking beer

    Gave it two weeks in the FV, and bottled with coopers carb drops.
    one month on and it taste's very good.

    I would discribe it as being a porter, very dark ruby colour. thick creamy head that lastes to the bottom, and a deep rich taste that is reminicent of hobgoblin with more liquorice and treacle notes and a bitter finish.
    Very good

    I could drink this beer for ever
    Review by popeyon 01/08/2012
    I have brewed a lot of Youngs beer kits, i have brewed extract beer kits, and all the Woodfords beer kits, but in my opinion, the Woodfords Nog, leaves every kit i have brewed, standing in a league of its own.
    I gave it two weeks in the f.v. and ten days in the bottling bucket, and after two weeks in a bottle, wow, it looks and pours out like a Guinness, with a dark fluffy head,and as for the taste, well every one is different, but for me, it reminds me of Export Guinness.
    My only deviation from the original instructions was to brew it to 20 lts.
    Its going to be the only beer i will be brewing for some time.

    I have found the 'One'
    Review by frederickon 17/05/2012
    This is my fourth different kit since home-brewing 6 months ago. This Nog is by far the most distinctive and characterful to date. After 10 days in FV, 3 days priming and only 14 days cooling in a barrel at 14C it is remarkably good. A perfect head, terrific 'baked bread' smell, full-bodied,undertones of chocolate and liquorice and a delicious warming feeling as it goes down. Top of my list so far.

    A cracking dark ale Grommit lad!
    Review by Roberton 24/04/2012
    I tried this as a 'Christmas brew' and sensing the need for a festive addition to the flavour added some dried figs to the brewing bucket. 500g of dried figs chopped and brought to the boil, allowed to cool overnight, then mashed (potato masher) to extract as much of the 'juice' as possible. The resultant liquid and 'fig residue' were all added to the bucket in the normal process.

    6 weeks later I was basking in the glory of compliments paid to my first 'off-piste' brew! Known as Festive Figgy Nog!

    As with previous Woodfordes brews the results were excellent and improved with time in the barrel.

    Beautiful and easy to brew
    Review by Roberton 18/04/2012
    I have been brewing this for about 5 years and never had a failure; I always add 1 kg of granulated sugar to the fermentation bucket; it steps up the alchol content to a level I find enjoyable; I recently drank some that had been in the shed for nearly 3 years and was just as good as if it had been 3 months. I find it expensive compared to the Cooper's range but if you wnat quality then Nog is the answer.

    What a reintroduction to home brewing kits!
    Review by Hamsteron 19/01/2011
    Hadn't made a beer from a kit in more than 30 years - what a cracking product with which to return to the fold. The four stars rather than five is probably a reflection of the rustiness of the brewer rather than the ale.....
    Was somewhat slower than expected in the primary ferementation, probably something to do with the minus 14 degrees outside and the MemSahib mostly banishing the tub to an unheated spare bedroom and the secondary fermentation/bottle conditioning also was distinctly slow.
    However. However however however. Got there eventually and yes it is a smashing drop of stuff. Slightly different bite from Hobgoblin, but not by much. Definitely going to do more of this - after I have worked my way through a few other kits from Woodfordes and others.
    Goes down far too well when our sons walk over to see us!

    Review by Maarrkon 29/11/2010
    REALLY easy to make. I really like dark beers,and this superb kit has produced a great ale which I'm very pleased I brewed before Christmas. You know you're in for a treat when you smell the malt and hops as you mix it up. I used demerera sugar to prime it and have tried one after 1 week in the bottle, only because I couldn't wait any longer. It was fine, but another week's wait and another sample showed MUCH improvement. I will DEFINITELY buy this kit again.

    One word - Brilliant!!
    Review by Hammy1801on 20/11/2010
    Beers like this is why I got into Home Brewing, an absolute cracker of a beer. Dark red coloured ale with a moreish taste this is a beer you can drink all night.
    Like all kits it needs more than the stated two weeks to clear, my brew was clear after about 5 weeks. Unfortunately I only had about 10 pints left by then ;-)

    Why spend ~£3 on a pint in a pub, when homebrew is this good!
    Review by Markon 24/07/2010
    Another absolutely cracking ale from Woodfordes.
    These people sure know how to make ale kits!

    This dark coloured ale is has a deep malty taste, which is very
    moreish and once again rivals ales that you would get in a pub.

    This is my 1st batch of Nog, and I waited for 4 weeks for it to clear,
    but as the weather has been so hot recently I gave up waiting and
    started drinking it while it was still cloudy, which has not impaired the
    taste at all.

    This was the first beer I ever made!
    Review by The noviceon 03/12/2009
    I bought the Norfolk Nog kit and used it to make my very first batch of home -made beer. It did not dissapoint - and I quickly re-ordered another kit as soon as stocks of the final brew began to run low.

    When I made it, being a bit wary of making any error with my first batch of beer, I bottled 20 pints and the other 20 pints placed in a pressure barrel.

    I have to recommend the use of a barrel for this beer if you want a more mellow taste as the bottled beers tended to come out slightly sweeter and less malty than that from the barrel- though that may be, in part to delegating the job of "bottle primer" to my young son!? I would echo a comment posted by an earlier contributor - the alcohol content of the beer that I've brewed has been marginally lower than the professionally produced product - but only marginally. It still is a great beer.

    I've bought other kits since (mostly Woodfordes) but I still rate this one very much and it remains a favourite with me.

    I was sceptical about this home brewing lark, but decided to give it a go. I like porters and milds a lot, so thought i would give this a go as my FIRST attempt. All I can say is that I am completely blown away by the results. Much better end product that a lot of pubs I have been too. Smooth, dark with a rich creamy head. Just great. Highly recommended.

    Next up is the new St. Peter's Ruby Red Ale. No reviews out there yet, but I have high expectations.

    Woodfordes Beer Kits
    Review by Sparky Justinon 31/08/2009
    Im lucky enough to live a short bike ride from the woodfordes brewery in Woodbastwick, Norfolk. I have long been a fan of their beers and decided to try and brew some Nog (my favorite tipple) so I bought this kit and mcrobrewery for my first experience of home brewing. The results were excellent.

    I have to say the Nog kit is not as strong (4.5%) or as deep in flavour as the original article. But in fact being lighter and less alcoholic the kit beer is more drinkable and more of a session ale.

    For an even more authentic tase of Nog similar to that brewed at the Fur and Feathers Brewery, I added an aditional 500g of dark brown sugar and 500g of dark spraymalts. It produced a much stronger ale (5.5-6% ABV) and had much deeper more treacle flavour. A real winter warmer ale.

    The beauty of the beer kits today seems to be that you can experiment. Add extra sugar, treacle, spraymalts and even spices or fruit to create a unique beer.....sure some will not turn out right, but finding out is all the fun.

    Next time I brew Nog Im going to add some treacle and chocolate malts.
