Nils Oscar Imperial Stout is brewed only in a limited edition. Also Nils Oscar Imperial Stout was awarded as the best beer in the world. This beer is brewed with many varieties of hops and malt, nothing saved to make the stout full of character. Imperial Stout is best enjoyed combined with the dessert but works wonderfully with oysters. The Nils Oscar Imperial Stout can be enjoyed today but preferably mature a couple of years.

Originally sampled on 11/28/08. I was pretty impressed by this one, The aroma was really nice, strong sweet chocolate with coffee undertones. Initial flavor of chocolate with some nuttiness showing and a nice coffee aftertaste. Mouthfeel was smooth and it is a well balanced beer with all flavors sharing the stage. Overall it is a pretty nice Imp. stout and i wouldnt mind having more someday.

tfredvik (1762) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2016
Pours a very deep brown body with a tiny, frothy, tan and very short-lived head. Malty, sweet and strong aroma of milk chocolate, chocolate sauce, dark caramel and dark roasted malt, with hints of tobacco in the back. Strong flavour of chocolate, dark caramel, dark roasted malt, and leather and brown sugar in the back. Moderate sweet taste with a moderate to heavy bitter finish. Mid-bodied, smooth texture and close to no carbonation. A good one, but it could have needed some more carbonation.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 4.5 years before BB date, from Systembolaget Kungshamn, Sweden]

Bottle. Euro Summer Secret Santa Swap. Very dark brown - black. Vanilla, a little bit of wood, and lots of chocolate. Bitter, woodsy, dry and yet chocolatey taste. Full body, a little bit of fizz, complex. BlackBerry and vanilla finish.

LearninBeer (486) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2016
The aroma is malt, a little coffee, a little chocolate and roasty. Pours black fully diminishing tan head. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. Very Good for a 7% that is probably close to nine years old.

Nische (1912) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget. Dark brown pour with khaki head. Chocolatey aroma with hints of roast, dark fruits and sweet liquorice. The taste is quite thin with light roast, chocolate and caramel. Not matured at all this might be lacking something. This falls somewhat in between. Balanced and clean, but a little bit thin and a little too sweet.

Fat från 2007. Svart med brunt skum. Doftar mörk choklad och mörk frukt. Mjuk och fyllig smak med mörk choklad, kaffe, fruktig sötma, aningen rökighet och en fin efterbeska. Suveränt komplex och balanserad. De Klomp 2015-12-19

Flaska från SB, ölprovning Nils Oscar vs. Eskilstuna, Nerikes Ölsällskap. Sötsur och något rökig doft. Ganska snäll. Lagom tunn kropp. Lite choklad i smaken, lite rök och aska. Jämn.

guzzler67 (1670) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Totally dark with an average size, mocha colored head that faded fast and left spotty lacing. Aroma of molasses, chicory and dried fruit. Taste is burnt toast, dark fruit and roasted coffee. Notes of bittersweet chocolate in the aftertaste. ABV not too high for the style. Full bodied, modestly carbonated mouthfeel with a long lasting finish.
