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. Deep black with a small mocha head. Big roasted coffee aroma, raisin sweetness, alcohol, and a touch of anise. Smooth chocolate flavour, yeasty, lots of coffee roast, and quite bitter towards the end. Alcohol warmth is present throughout. Sampled at the Københavnske Øldage 2006 on May 20, 2006.

[Bottled. ] Jet black colour.grey-black foam. Juniper dominates the aroma, very fresh nose. Soft malty, no fieriness, medium mouthfeel, notes of bitter chocolate. I found the bitterness to be light-medium. Solid Impy but not top notch.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 Bottle at Danske øldage200506. Black colour, with a thin brown foam. A bit of citric in the begining, but it change to sweet maltyness and chocolate in the end of the Aroma. Full body, long nice finish. Nice!! This is a better versjon, than the 2005. The brewer told me that he change the resepe.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2006
Bottle. Very dark and a big brownish head. A taste of nuts and roasty aroma. Some sweetness as well. A very good imperial stout but maybe a bit unfinnished?

Roasted malt nose, light sour milk aroma too. Black color, big tan head. Sour milk again in the taste, chocolate notes, and even brandy. Toasted, pine-y end. Medium body. The Porter is better.

Black color, big head. The aroma is very interesting, strong cheese and smoke, but also dust and black bean sauce, chinese kitchen. It has medium body strength, thinner than expected; the carbonation is high, and the alcohol clearly perceivable, sign that the beer worked along these years; there is a good chocolate and dark malt flavor, with some dry liquorice and roasted nuts, dark caramel; there is little sugar left here. Correct bitterness, from the roasted malt, but it’s evident that there are little hop qualities; the final is therefore less interesting. Overall, a quite complex beer, different, interesting even if not spectacular.

Black color; generous brownish head. Very nice aroma: malt, roasted malt, vanilla, light cardboard. Powerful taste and mouthfeel, in which the liquorice dominates over the roasted malt; less thick and oily than some American one. Very long final (liquorice, roasted malt, caramel; lightly astringent). Hidden, there is some aromatic hop. Excellent. Thanks Henrik and Jørgen.

(Bottle 50 cl) Completely black and opaque with a creamy, light brown head leaving some laces. Fat, malty aroma. Full-bodied with shiploads of roasted malt - hard roasted but not really burned. Ends - surprisingly - on a rather mellow note. A very smooth Imperial Stout. 170406
