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. Pours without much of a head. Aroma is rich and smoky with the obvious bittersweet chocolate and roasty malts. Coffee abounds in this medium bodied, smooth treat. Not a thing wrong with this beer The carbonation dances on the palate. Some vanilla and espresso as well.

500ml. bottle. Black with a very small tan head. Aroma of dark roasted malts, chocolate, coffee and light licorice. Sweet, bitter roasted malt flavor with hints of hazelnut, coffee and dark chocolate. Some hop bitterness on the finish. Fairly low carbonation helped give this beer a creamy mouthfeel. Very enjoyable, but a bit too bitter for my taste.

500mL bottle from henrikb, bottled on 21.03.06, big thanks! Pours a dark orange brown--black in my glass--and a two finger fading tan head. Aromas of dark chocolate, anise, port, ETOH, wood, roasty malts, a hint of wintergreen, molasses, and a bit of salt. The dominating flavors are the roasty malts, charred wood, and alcohol. There is also some soy, light wintergreen, molasses and salted nuts. , anise towards the finish. Dry lingering roasty bitter finish. Burps light pine needles. Body is velvety though a tad too thin, carbonation is minimal.

radiomgb (2422) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2007
Deep black in colour, lingering large beige coloured head, good retention, great lacing. The aroma is intensely roasty, lots of espresso, sugar, chocolate, licorice, nuts, light smoke, some raisin. The flavour is very sweet (but not distracting), very roasty, some alcohol makes an appearance, dark chocolate and espresso. Moderately bitter and rich mouthfeel, medium/large body, medium carbonation. Finishes long with a roasty bitterness, some alcohol warmth. This is a big stout, insane roast but still velvety smooth. The alcohol gives this one a kick. A great winter warmer.

Christian (11319) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2010 Pitch black with a small and disappearing brown head. Quite an overwhelming aroma with coffee and chocolate, mint, wood, hops and licorice. Sweet and thick initially, but soon taken over by hops and roast grain. Awesome experience with lots of nuances.
