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.10°C/50°F. 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.

23°P,75 IBU, 9% ABV.

Imperial Stout fra Nøgne Ø er en tett og helt svart ale med stor fyldighet. Smaken domineres av kaffe, sjokolade, lær og tørket frukt. Vi synes den passer bra til mørk sjokolade og kraftige desserter.

ENG: 500ml bottle from Sherbrooke Liquor Store in Edmonton, bottled on 27.01.2014, aged for 7 months after purchase in January 2015, poured into the tulip. So the beer have one and a half year since the bottling. Sounds good :) Black, opaque color with medium, brown head. Aromas of licorice gellys, roasted coffee. Roasted malts get stronger after mixing in the tulip. Smoky wooden character overall. Tastes delicately, quite well balanced, but still, the character is smoky. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, licorice, prunes. Warming up the throat roasted coffee aftertaste. Low carbonation, full body. Overall very dark character, nicely balanced.

PL: Butelka 500ml kupiona w styczniu 2015 w Sherbrooke Liquor Store w Edmonton, data butelkowania 27.01.2014, leżakowa przez 7 miesięcy od daty zakupu, przelana do tulipa. Czyli piwo ma ok. półtora roku od butelkowania. Brzmi ciekawie :) Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, piana średnia, brązowa. Aromaty żelków lukrecjowych, palonej kawy. Po zamieszaniu kieliszkiem dość intensywnie wychodzą palone słody. Ogólny charakter nieco przypomina wędzone drewno. W smaku delikatne, fajnie zbalansowane, ale jednak wciąż ma mocno wędzony charakter. Palona kawa, gorzka czekolada, lukrecja, suszone śliwki. Grzejący w gardło posmak palonej kawy. Niskie nasycenie, pełne odczucie w ustach. Podsumowując piwo o dość ciemnym, mocnym charakterze, ale fajnie zbalansowane.

Drank a 08-2014 bottle with my friends before heading to the vierdaagsefeesten 20-7-2015. Liked it. This beer has a rich taste. Full of chocolate. Taste is compelling, strong, dominant. Good beer.
