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.

This poured black with a thin tan head. It was very creamy and smooth on the tongue with a slight bitterness in the flavor. it finished dry.

Tranquillity (1405) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2008 A wonderful beer. Black-black with brown head, quite thick for the voltage in this one. Wonderful modest but strong aroma, unfortunately my skills are not sufficient to describe the different parts of it. Extremely thick and silky.

Opaque black color, short fluorescent brown head. Oily. Very roasted malty aroma with loads of coffee and chocolat. Very strong taste, bitter of chocolat and coffee again. Ongoing palate.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2006
500ml bottle (batch 241, bb.21.03.11). Amazing dark brownish foam over a completely black body. Nice spicy aroma supported by black coffee notes. Black chocolate taste with a hint of raisin and other dried fruits. And lurking behind; some roasted coffee beans accentuated by an aniseed aftertaste. Full bodied. A solid winter warmer! (Thanks to CinnamonGirl who had bought the bottle at BarleyWine, Copenhagen - it is a paradox that some Norwegians have to travel to Denmark to get some of the best Norwegian ales. This one is not yet available at Vinmonopolet) (18.11.2006).

Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 19, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2007 Bottle 0,5l. Black as coal. A small dark head. A rich roasted aroma. An extremely rich lasting flavour of coffee, fruit and spice. An everlasting aftertaste with sweet hints. Well rounded with a cautious bitter finish. Another shocking good beer from Nøgne Ø.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2006
Dutch Ratebeer Gathering. Looks like oil with a rapidly disappearing dark brown head. Aroma of liquorice, malts, coffee and some lactic notes, very complex. Initially very strong bitter flavour, which later on develops to be more complex, again with coffee and lactic notes. Syrupy texture. Really good brew.

skortila (4424) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2006
Bottled, UDRBG. Aroma of coffee, black currant, chocolate and licorice. Opaque, black coloured with a fluoressent brown head. Slick, machine-oil when pooring in the glass. Taste is sweet and has evolving bitterness towards the finish. Coffee malt with licorice and black currrant. Some alcohol in the finish.Quite sticky, thick mouthfeel. Nice imperial stout.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2006
Winous wake-up call of an aroma. Salty salami aroma that even sneaks in some garlic! I could be happy just sniffing this! Black as night with a small, tan head. Incredibly soft and smooth, full but not big flavour. Soft, dark chocolate with slight hints of coffee. Finishes with lovely soft, yet assertive, hops and salty sausage.

Skinnyviking (6751) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2006
Bottle. Bronw high creamy and lasting head. Pitch black body. Coffee hops aroma. Coffee liquorice flavor, smooth and plesant, with a fair amount of bitternes and a hint of alcohol.
