COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We think the Russian tsar would have liked his stout this way. A dark, rich ale in which a generous sweetness with roasted malt bitterness. Serving temp.10C/50F. Great with vanilla ice cream or dark chocolate.

Ingredients: Maris Otter, Munich, roasted barley, oat, black, and chocolate malt; Columbus and Crystal hops; English ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

23P,75 IBU, 9% ABV.

Imperial Stout fra Ngne er en tett og helt svart ale med stor fyldighet. Smaken domineres av kaffe, sjokolade, lr og trket frukt. Vi synes den passer bra til mrk sjokolade og kraftige desserter.

Dark as night. Tan head which disappears quickly. Oily, slick, tobacco sweetness in the aroma, coffee, chocolate and roasty goodness in the taste. I absolutely LOVED this.

On tap at Archive for Armakeggon 2016. Looks and smells the part, deep roasted flavours and a lingering dark chocolate bitterness.

Pours very thick and dark with a thin caramel head. I did not detect strong aromas, but espresso coffee and dark chocolate are immediately present; same goes for taste. Really good beer, reminds me of the Rasputin and Narwhal, both great beers. Alcohol is extremely well balanced, not felt even when warming up. Will definitely but again.

Exeptional with an Oreo cake. The heavy chocolate beer taste is just perfect ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Deze Russian imperial stout heeft een dessertgevoel. Dat komt door de stevige koffiesmaak en het viskeuze mondgevoel. Het bier is wat romig, waardoor je een bijzondere sensatie ervaart. Kandijsuiker en vanille zitten ook in het palet. Mooie balans tussen zoet en bitter.

rikstar (2133) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2016
0,5l fles gedeeld met lion. Zwart met een licht bruine kraag. Geur en smaak mooi in balans tussen zoet en bitter ook gebrande smaken mooi geflankeerd met de cacao en tabak. Beetje kerosine toen het bier wat koud was, deze verdween echter snel. Schoolvoorbeeld van een imperial stout

Hyvin tummanruskea, miltei musta olut pienehkll beigell vaahdolla, joka jtt hieman pitsi. Tuoksussa vahvasti salmiakkia, joka peitt muut tuoksut aika hyvin alleen. Maultaan kauttaaltaan aika kuiva, kahvia ja katkeroa sek hieman alkoholia. Turhan yksiulotteinen, ja ehk itselle sitten sopivat paremmin kauttaaltaan pehmemmt ja asteen verran makeammat tekeleet. Hyvhn tm on, mutta ei vastannut odotuksia.

PowY (146) - - AUG 7, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a light brown to brown creamy head. The aroma is rather mild with roasted malts (mild coffee). Full body with light carbonation. Medium to heavy sweetness along with some alcohol albeit not to much for the high ABV. The taste is heavily malty of brown sugar, molasse, some nuts in honey and coffee. Very aromatic and full of different flavors but never crushing. Extremely good beer.
