COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We at Nøgne Ø wanted to improve our imperial stout. We soon found that to be a difficult task, as the beer is full of everything. Then we got some fresh Highland Scotch whisky barrels with some help of our friends at Mikkeller and BrewDog. They proved to be the perfect enhancement for this beer. After 3 months of ageing in these barrels, we were quite pleased. We hope you are too!

Bottle shared thanks to Paul from Brown! Pours a thick black with lacy tan head that sticks lightly. Aroma of whiskey, peat, vanilla, wood, roast, and chocolate. Taste follows, slightly boozy and nicely warming. Velvet and smooth, very nice.

Sampled at a recent tasting. Not sure who brought this but thank you! All the good qualities you look for in an imperial stout are there: oily lacing, aroma of whiskey and woody notes, slight chocolate etc. All well balanced!

No smokiness, just a weak and bland stout that has oxidized over the years.
