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.

Imperial, yet very easy-drinking...the nose is all big roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and dates. The mouthfeel was silky and smooth, yet not heavy pr cloying in any way...very easy to drink. A moderately bitter finish, helping to cut through what otherwise would be an overwhelming sugar bomb. Big coffee chocolate, vanilla cream, and dried fruit flavors...perfect on a sub-zero Chicago winter evening.

rbesg06, bottle at haket. deep shade of purple with a persistent head. plummy aroma with hints of coffee and a fair whiff of alcohol. quite syruppy malt character with traces of molasses and tar and a decently burnt, rye cracker finish. very tasty

Bottle. Pours without much of a head. Aroma is rich and smoky with the obvious bittersweet chocolate and roasty malts. Coffee abounds in this medium bodied, smooth treat. Not a thing wrong with this beer The carbonation dances on the palate. Some vanilla and espresso as well.

500ml. bottle. Black with a very small tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and light licorice. Sweet, bitter roasted malt flavor with hints of hazelnut, coffee and dark chocolate. Some hop bitterness on the finish. Fairly low carbonation helped give this beer a creamy mouthfeel. Very enjoyable, but a bit too bitter for my taste.

UPDATED: SEP 28, 2007 500ml, poured pitch black with no head. very low carbination but that was perfect, not a flat feeling. nose was mainly coffee and burnt currants and chocolate. taste had a wonderful coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate. mouthfeel was silky smooth and perfect. no alcohol in taste or palate. the flavor and mouthfeel was slightly thin but this was pretty delicious.

500mL bottle from henrikb, bottled on 21.03.06, big thanks! Pours a dark orange brown--black in my glass--and a two finger fading tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, anise, port, ETOH, wood, roasty malts, a hint of wintergreen, molasses, and a bit of salt. The dominating flavors are the roasty malts, charred wood, and alcohol. There is also some soy, light wintergreen, molasses and salted nuts. , anise towards the finish. Dry lingering roasty bitter finish. Burps light pine needles. Body is velvety though a tad too thin, carbonation is minimal.
