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 colour, very small brown head. Very roasted coffee aroma. Quite powerful roasted flavour, almost turning into a sour bitterness. But very successful. Hint of aroma hops. Good coffee aftertaste.

Medium brown head. Opaque black body. Milky coffee aroma with licorice notes. Dense burnt coffee taste with wild berries and caramel pudding. Milky mouthfeel. Aftertaste is milky burnt wood and coffee. Smooth and dense throughout. Pine needles. This is a great beer. Balanced, complex, and interesting. I’m impressed. (0.5l on cask at Cardinal.)

Marsiblursi (3001) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2006 (Bottle at Haket, Göteborg) Dark brown to black with yeast in the bottom. Light brown head. Smells like swedish julmust. Some hops and alcohol. Salt and shellfish. Cardamom. Menthol (-cigarettes), not pleasant. Taste: Peppery gingerbread. Soil. Salt. Burned, roasted malt. Some coffee and chocolate. Big body with a dry finish. The problem with some Nögne Ö- beers is the menthol taste that totaly takes over when you get to the end of the bottle.

Bottle shared by Jason. Black body under a thick tan head. Looks great! Chocolate liquer, acidic char, ripe fruit, and some liquorice in the aroma. Wonderfully complex. The flavor leans towards sharp dark chocolate, bitter hops, sweet caramel/chocolate, and tart coffee beans. Velvety mouthfeel. Great stuff!

Thanks Jason. The beer pours to a very black body with a creamy light brown head. The aroma is pretty strong charred dark chocolate malt, mocha, woody licorice. The flavor is sorta like a foreign stout. Dry roasted tart chocolate malt. Quite tasty. Light woody quality. Tart roasty palate.

Thick tan head, dark black body. Aroma has roasted cola, feet, chocolate, coffee, glue.... lots of stuff in there. Taste is roasted wood hiding sweet chocolate. A little too fizzy for me. Good beer, with the aroma sticking out above the flavor. Some hops. Later comes some slightly soured / "foreign stout" spices. Good beer.... really good the more I drink!

MIBRomeo (2555) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2006
Pours jet black w/ a huge thick small bubled cream of wheat brown head with a thick lacing. Very nice aroma. A great roast dark grain and bitter chocolates, some spices definate touches of pepper. A couple of light fruits ni the background with a definate grassy styly hop in there. Palate is nice and thick some ok coatings but a bit bodyless after the initial bite & no cream. Flavor has an odd sour in it, it gave me a light puckering. Definate bakers chocolates with hints of coffee. and some light grasses. Pretty dang good but could have been a little fuller and bigger.

50 cl bottle. Pitch black colour with a huge head. Aroma of roastedness and dusty also little sour. Little sour flavour combined with a touch of roastedness. Very nice but nothing overwelming.
