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. Black color with a rich dark brown head. Sweet malts and sugar in the aroma with a subtle dark fruit and loads of chocolate. Rich roasted malt flavors mixed with a sweet chocolate bitter bite. Such a rich, velvety, sweet and dark stout. Nice.

Now we are cooking with gas! Tasted after the Nogne porter. Aroma is thick and beguiling. Coffee, cocoa a touch of vanilla and hint of malt. Flavor is big and bold, richly bitter-sweet and warming. Awesome bottle.

Poured black with brown head that lasted til the last drop. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and a little bit of chocolate. Taste was much of the same but expressed alot more. Very good balanced brew with flavors of coffee, chocolate, hops, and malt.

marcus (8001) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 4, 2007
This black ale poured with a fluffy brown head. The robust and delicious flavor teems with chocolate, coffee and malt elements, and finishes with a pleasant hop bitterness. A dessert-like taste lingers on the palate until the next sip. This may not be the best beer in the world, but it is surely the most flavorful.

Aroma was chocolate cake batter and dusty cocoa,with touches of vanilla and caramel, nowhere near as huge as everyone else seemed to experience,beer was at proper temp, creamy biege head, taste was subtle chocolate brownie ,sweet caramel ,with roastiness and a hint of alcohol in the finish,after a couple sips you can suck the sweetness out of your teeth,these baltic dark brews all have such delicate flavors and textures,almost feminine,the tastes are great,if they could just amp up the body and complexity,this would be top 3 material

Pours a dark black color with a brown head. Huge roasted malt aroma of coffee and chocolate with some dark fruits, alcohol, and a hint of some hop character. Flavor starts off strong with the coffee and chocolate and then the sweeter flavors of the dark fruits, molasses, and caramel hit. Finishes with a little alcohol warming and has a slightly bitter, lingering flavor. A very delicious brew that I will look forward to trying again.

Black with a really beautiful dense creamy brown head. Glass lacing is beautiful. Definitely a 5 for appearance. sweet dark fruits hints of citrus and plenty of choco-coffee. The flavor is yummy, salty, chocolatey, all that. Full bodied, duh. One of the better Imperial Stouts that I have had in a long time.
