Imperial DunkelWit from Nøgne Ø is an attempt to combine the best of many brewing cultures. Indeed we hope to please the Belgian ale partisan, the dark ale enthusiast, as well as those who love big ales with this one product. That is a tough ambition. At least we had fun brewing it...... Ingredients: Grimstad water, wheat, malted barley, coriander, orange peel, hops and yeast. 24*P, 25 IBU

Dark brown pour. Candyish nose of plum, berry, caramel, and a bit of banana. Somewhat artificially sweet. Drinkable, but not a beer I’d revisit, especially at its price point.

Bottle. Pours brown with a small, frothy, off-white head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie), average hops (perfume), average yeast (dough) with notes of plum and coriander. Full bodied, creamy texture, and average carbonation. Long duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

Sampled on 5/14/2010. This Belgian Strong Ale pours a dark brown color with some ruby highlights from a .5l bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head with decent lacing. The aroma is fruity, caramel, raisins and banana and spices. A medium bodied Belgian Strong Ale. The malts are dark fruits, raisins and banana. The hops are herbal. Nice carbonation. A touch sweet, but kind of expected for a dunkel styled wit. Touch of spices, orange peel, coriander and pepper. Nice smooth taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

jtclockwork (9077) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2010
Very strange beer. Pours dark purplish black with white head. Nose is red licorice, Bazooka Joe bubblegum and medicine. Taste is similar with light fruits. No hint of alcohol even though it’s 10% abv. It’s very close to drinking straight cough medicine.

Pours deep mahogany into a weiss glass. Off-white head quickly recedes to hug rim. Sweet corriander and clove aromas. Full and sweet with upfront raisins and dates turning dry and slightly hot in the lasting apple spice finish.
