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.

Aroma is vinous with port and coffee, taste is similar with a serious easy drinkablility.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2006
(Bottled, brewed in March 21st, 2006, batch 241, 9% ABV) Almost black with a small, dark beige head. Aroma of licorice, burned and roasted malt, and gooseberry hints. Strongly malty, bittersweet, strongly but smoothly hoppy flavor with an ashy, burned-malty finish. Long, dry and roasty aftertaste. Without yeast, the hops and alcohol are more pronounced. Very full-bodied, slicky-ashy palate with quite low carbonation. A beautiful, very strong, yet balanced brew, packed with roasted and burned maltiness. To be sipped in candlelight or by the fireplace, in good company. A perfect replacement for food. Not quite as good as Siperia, but at least this one you can buy to go...

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2008 re-rate: Almost black. Thin head. Chocolatey, slightly vegetal character with a hint of deep coffee. Rich and stinging in intensity, but with an alcohol signature. Some espresso crema character. A touch underdeveloped, but not so bad. 6 4 7 3 13 = 3.3

Original rating: Pretty close to pure black. Rich aroma is very fruity (plum, raisin) and slightly lactic with loads of meaty roastiness. Very rich body, chewy, with dense fruitcake and well-integrated roastiness and treacle. 8 4 8 4 16 = 4.0

Poured an almost opaque brown color with asmall brown head. Big thick roasty sweet malt with notes of coffee and smoke. The flavor had notes of chocolate, coffee, smoke and roasted malt. Bitter finish with a medium body thin thins a little at the tail.

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.
