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 nose of roasted and slightly smoky malts, with coffee and chocolate; opaque black witha good rusty cinnamon head; flavor has chocolate, some roasty coffee, a hint of smokiness and a small hop finish! Excellent!!

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.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Poured an opaque black color with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of milk chocolate, roasted malts, floral hops, dried fruits, tar, and light smoke. Taste of chocolate, lactose, bitter roasted malt, smoke, and piney hops, with little alcohol presence.

Pours a deep black color, no mahoganey edges at all, nice brownish tan colored head. Aroma was coffee and chocolate, relatively balanced between the two. Flavor followed suit, choco-coffee/mocha type flavors, a firm hop presence in the finish, along with some roasty notes. Smooth yet a little stick mouthfeel, an enjoyable yet not outstanding impy stout (very good job at hiding the alcohol level).
