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.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a small foamy head with minimal retention. Aroma of black chocolate with subtle coffee notes was well balance and very enticing. Taste is a perfect balance between some black chocolate malt with a very subtle hint of sweetness and some subtle coffee. Creamy texture is incredible with a thick body à la Bells Expedition. No alcohol was detectable and carbonation was low. Definitely the best beer I have tasted from this brewer up to now.

Sweet, roasty, floral nose with a note of blackberry; nutty, chocolatey flavor, burnt toastiness and salty licorice; slightly medicinal and citric; special b malt fruitiness; creamy, dense, and fairly lively palate; chewy, but balanced. Great brew.

Bottle. Dark and opague, almost pitch black. Dark chocolate, cream and juniper in the aroma. A heavenly aroma BTW, I had trouble taking my nose out of the glass. Creamy with a thick mouthfeel. Coffee, pure chocolate and some burning alcohol. Hops are there, but the creamy texture and the chocolate and roast bitter flavors dominate, yet the balance is not far from perfection. Long bitter chocolate aftertaste. Extremely well made beer, one of the best I’ve had.

Opaque body, espresso head. Aroma is chocolate, espresso, mollases, caramel. Taste is espresso, bittersweet chocolate, nice hoppiness that blends well with the roasted malts.

Maria (10130) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 26, 2007
Pitch black with a creamy, dark brown and nice head. The aroma has notes of dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and the mouthfeel is oily. The flavour has a nice balance between dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and licorice. The body is nice, and it’s smooth and yet with a nice bite. 1958

Great-looking beer...I anticipate great things now, especially after the rich, choclately, coffee-filled aroma. The mouthfeel is exquisite: velvet, creamy, silken dark chocolate blended with creamy coffee. Bitter dark chocolate finish and the flavor is also filled with chocolate and coffee. Its slightly thinner than other great Imperial Stouts, but this is really great overall.

Nearly opaque pour, with an impressive dark brown, frothy head - deep roasty aroma, with notes of freshly brewed coffee, sweet cream, light anise, and some bitter hops in the background - quite dry, with strong bitter, dark coffee flavors - nicely hopped, with some smoke and woody touches complimenting them pretty well - a tiny bit of anise and prune - slightly herbal near the end, with lingering smoke and a little bit of alcohol warmth - reminds me of better vintages of Brooklyn BCS - nice.
