COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2007 Bottle (500ml). Oh, lord, that’s a fine-looking beer - oily black, red around the edges, huge brown head, very active - lovely. Aroma - oily, burnt roast caramel malt, coffee, chocolate, figs, raisins, sour cherry, lactose - all the good stuff, complex, balanced - yummy. Taste has all the aroma elements in it, is even more roasty and oily - the finish has more bitterness, alcohol and burnt character. Thick, oily, lightly acidic, fairly flat, silky on the tongue - terrific mouthfeel, long but not aggressive finish - truly one of the best-made impies I’ve had in ages, so "together" - outstanding!

I had trouble picking beer 500 given my lineup lately but this one hit a grand slam for me (baseball lingo). What sets this impy apart is the perfect motor oil coloration, the flavor which seems to have a good dose of bitter hops alongside barley and grains, and the aftertaste has this sweet chocolately layer which invites me back to my glass for more sips. There is some faint acidic almost vinegar flavors in here but they seem to accentuate the aroma and add an almost smoky quality to the mix. Alcohol is well hidden. The roasted malts seem roasted just right so they don’t overdo it. I love this beer! I’ll have to go back to the Oak Tree Buy Rite for more. Or maybe its time to fly to Norway?

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Bottle, pours a dark black with a large dark brown head, good lacing. Aroma of espresso, burnt matls, chocolate and dark fruits. Taste has more hops than expected, but quite pleasing and works well with the flavor profile. Palate is full, smooth and creamy. Very nice all the way through, although none too complex.

pilsnerrogge (2463) - Finspång, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2007
[bottle] Colour is black. The pale brown head is firm. Malty aroma with notes of liquorice and tobacco. Thick mouth feel. Sweet with a long hoppy finish.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Bottle courtesy of moejuck. Another excellent Norweigan brew. This beer has a flavor unlike any other imperila stout. It’s clean and mildly hoppy, but has a fruity character unlike any other imp stout I’ve tried. Very good.

marchcow (664) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Deep dark brown with a chocolaty brown head of short duration. Good aroma. Flavor is dark chocolate and roasted malt. Rich and sweet with a bittering duration of good length. Mouthfeel is creamy and rich. Very good.

16.9 oz bottle. There are good looking beers and then there is Nogne O. This sucker was darker then oil and had a head that was one of the darkest shades of brown I have ever seen, and the size of that head, HUGE, might as well have been a Belgian. After looking at this one I couldn’t wait to try it and it didn’t let me down. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt and with warming some alcohol and even hints of oak. Flavor is excellent with roasted malt, chocolate, slight espresso and the slightest hint of alcohol as it warms. Palate is where this one kicks it up a notch again where it is full bodied yet not overpowering. The right touch of carbonation finishes off this masterpiece. Fantastic beer.

Darkover (1512) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Black with a long lasting creamy brown head. Aroma is very roasty with some chocolate. Flavor is also very roasty with some smoke and chocolate. Some bitterness at the finish. Body is pretty smooth, thick and creamy.

Ernest (6154) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 5, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), lightly hoppy (grapefruit), with a note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy/watery texture, soft carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Another beer from Nogne that used to be 4+ but now is just average. Very simple and mild aroma, syrupy-watery mouthfeel, overly sweet, kinda flabby. Sad what has happened to this brewery. I guess that’s what success does to all companies, though.

Jvittorio4187 (255) - Boardman, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Pours a thick black with a tan head. Mouthfeek is good if you can fight through it being over carbonated. Taste of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Finish is nice with a lingering bitterness, a little dry.
