We think the Russian tsar would have liked his stout this way. A dark, rich ale in which a generous sweetness with roasted malt bitterness. Serving temp.10°C/50°F. Great with vanilla ice cream or dark chocolate.

Ingredients: Maris Otter, Munich, roasted barley, oat, black, and chocolate malt; Columbus and Crystal hops; English ale yeast, and our local Grimstad water.

23°P,75 IBU, 9% ABV.

Imperial Stout fra Nøgne Ø er en tett og helt svart ale med stor fyldighet. Smaken domineres av kaffe, sjokolade, lær og tørket frukt. Vi synes den passer bra til mørk sjokolade og kraftige desserter.

Pours the darkest of browns with a decent sized head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, alcohol is noticable. Nice solid sweetness with a good bitterness to match. Good stuff.

The aroma has dark chocolate, burnt malt, and milk. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. Overall this is pretty good but too astringent.

Has got it where it counts. The flavors of rich carmel, coffee and cocoa. Toasty and slightly roasty gives it a truly flavorful expirence.

Bottle. Deep black pour, small khaki head. Aromas of roasted chocolate malt, hops, dark bittersweet chocoolate. Full mouthfeel again with chocolate presence. 75 IBU’s adds a nice hop bitterness. Alcohol lingers at the back of the palate. Really opens up after it warms a bit. Great stout

Aroma is fairly subdued. Very nice flavor, thick, some creaminess comes through. Tastes like a very strong porter. Great beer.

I have been waiting a while to try this beer. Bottle pours an opaque black with a dark tan head. The head was filled with foamy, large bubbles that left splatters of sticky lacing on the sides of the snifter. The smell was very robust with strong espresso scents and a lingering malt backbone. There were some faint hops that made it very enjoyable. A quick bittering hop flavor on the front of the tounge is quickly balanced by a nice dry malt flavor in the finish. Coating flavors of coffee, caramel and chocolate chips dance around. Strong alcohol presence as the beer warmed a bit. A nice Imperial Stout.

Black as hell. Can’t see any light through this thing. The head is darker than a lot of beers I’ve seen lately. Smells like a mix of coffe, burnt bread and chalk?! The flavor is full and charred with hints of chocolate, coffee, licorice and lingers on the tongue. Full mouthfeel and a finish that never stops.

Pours a dark brown with a reddish tan head. Head is fairly large for a higher Stout. Ashy taste. Finish is dry and roasted.
