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.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2005 Black! Intensive taste of what feels like dark roasted coffee. Lots of malt and hops. The after-taste is a little bitter and leaves you with a smile on your face. Highly recommended!

Pours black with a brownish head that recedes to a bubbly lacing. Aroma is roast malts, raisins and rye bread. Taste is rye bread, roast malts and slightly sweet. Medium bodied and quite oily.

Tap@mitm, 2010. Black. Dark roasty coffee, dry chocolate. Roasty, some salt licorice. Pretty ok. Not overpowering or sweety full. More like a robust porter than impy.

simont1 (343) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Black with thin head. Nice roast on this one, a lot of coffee and some slight chocolate. Taste is upfront a nice bitterness which evens out with the coffee and roastiness, very one trick pony forward, but still, nice, and an excellent stout for 7%.

330ml bottle from Appellation Wines - Cheers Ash! Pours dark brown, near black, thin tan head that doesn’t stick around. Aromas of tar and cola. Taste brings chocolate and light roast. Kinda sweet. Bit disappointed to be honest.

Have to say that this was a disappointment. Was supposed to be part of a nice "one-two punch" but this was more like a foreign stout than an imperial stout. At only 7% and thin mouthfeel. No chocolate and the coffee tasted more like when you use old coffee grains again for a new cup of coffee. Subtle would be a nice word.

I like it. Not pushing any boundaries but it’s a solid, punchy stout. A good taste of roasted malt with coffee and chocolate. Quite light feel and very smooth - don’t notice the alcohol. Well done.
