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.

Good. Very much like syrup with a purple tint. Lots of sweet malt and very light hops. Some roasted character. A little chocolate. Great body, and rather expensive for what it is.

From a 500 ml bottle, this was the fifth beer sampled at Cellar’s Nøgne Ø on Friday. Pours a motor oil thick black with a thick beige head. Aroma of dark bittersweet chocolate, tawny port, burnt citrus wood, roasted barley malt, and some molasses. Taste of mostly roasted malt and vanilla. Finish is sweet/bitter and a heavy full body beverage. This one will fill you up like two pork chop sandwiches.

Bottle, poured a deep black with dark brown edges. Coffee and burnt aromas with a touch a citrus. Great complex flavors, dried fruits, chocolate, resiny hops. Excellent mouthfeel, very creamy and thick, yet not overboard. A truly world class beer.

Dark chocolate coating, creamy, roasty tan head, good 1/2"... Smooth, creamy, milky aroma, light cocoa tones, toasty, ... Big on the palate, full and rich, big chocolate, some espresso below that, thick and tasty, ...very full, lightly hoppy, nice moderate bitterness, with a deep, and gorgeous flavor below. Wow.
