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

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 10, 2010
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. This is an EXTREME beer as far as spices are concerned. Pours with a brown body and an off-white head. Aroma of parsley, perfume, jasmine and potpourri. Taste is dryer sheets (squared), potpourri and SPICE!!!! Over overpoweringly so. That said, I didn’t notice the alcohol.

fonefan (44144) - VestJylland, DENMARK - APR 8, 2010
Bottle 500ml. @ home.
Unclear medium to dark red brown color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, moderate to heavy hoppy, citrus - orange, coriander, licorice, moderate yeasty. Flavor is light heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, licorice, spicy, hoppy, caramel, star anis. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Funny beer but not balanced IMO !

eaglefan538 (3032) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 7, 2010
Poured a dark chestnut brown with an off-white to tan colored head. The lacing was good all the way down. The aroma was light roast and chocolate, coriander, and another spice like ginger or lavendar, also some fruity ester elements. Flavor followed, quite sweet, bananas lightly toasted, and an annoying spicey finish: chamomile, lavendar, ginger, something just annoying in there. Mouthfeel was moderate to full and malty with some stickiness to it. Another rip off by Nogne at import prices.

Bottle. Mostly clear deep copper with a wispy off white head, light lacing. Nose is mostly fruit loops then coriander, roasted malts and various spices. Quite sweet on the palate, some spice and candied citrus notes......weird stuff.

badgerben (4886) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Dark brown, reddish color with a quickly falling medium head. Aroma like I jammed my head into a large bin of freshly ground coriander. Taste... like I opened my mouth in that bin. Oddly enough, it’s not as overpowering (at first) as many tripels that I declare to be "coriander smoothies". There is a lot of wheat, chocolate and caramel at work in this one and that seems to balance it much better than the lighter malt flavor and candi sugar of many tripels. Dry finish. Towards the bottom of the bottle, I start to OD on the coriander, but still, the best done coriander smoothie I’ve ever had.
