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.

Thanks to Mgumby10 for sharing out of his private stock. Oilly darkness. Lots of burnt coffee and chocolate. Some creaminess but seemed a bit young and rough around the edges. I’ll be looking forward to re-visiting this one in a few months.

Pours an oily black with a very light brown head. I got a very rich caramel and almost a chocolate cream smell. Taste is somewhat creamy as well. Also, slightly bitter with very light chocolate and roasted malts. Its more hoppy up front and and then turns into chocolate towards the finish. Very nicely balanced. The flavors compliment each other well.

Pours a syrupy black with very little head. Aroma of roasted malt and a touch of port. Taste is a little harsh at first but fades into a wonderfull roasted malt and chocolate aftertaste. Light hop bitterness. Very thick mouthfeel. A very slow drinking beer.

Black, medium tan head with a few large bubbles. Nose is rich chocolate malt, caramel, vanilla, alcohol, bitter fruits. Flavor is chocolate, caramel, dark chocolate covered cherries, vanilla. Wonderfully done light burnt touch. Bitter chocolate milk finish.

17 oz bottle via Dickinsonbeer (thanks Paul!).Pours like motor oil and sounds like it too...glug glug glug. Nice aroma of roasted espresso and a little vanilla. umm this is good. I taste vanilla, chocolate, coffee and a pretty good amount of hops for an European Imp Stout, borders on being West Coasty in that regard. Lots of burnt roastiness and hops carry over into the bitter aftertaste. Alcohol presence is minimal. Body is full. Carbonation is light to medium. Great Imp Stout!

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 12, 2007
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
