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. Tan small head that ended up mostly diminishing, fair lacing, opaque, no visible carbonation, and a dark brown hue. Nose was malt, chocolate, roasty, and coffee. Very well put together. Flavor was malt, roasty, coffee, and chocolate. Smooth, oily palate. Medium body. Definitely worth a try if you have the opportunity.

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 22, 2006
500 ml bottle. Pitch black with a small brown head. Rich sweet and roasted aroma. Notes of vanilla and dark chocolate. Very rich flavours and a really thick mouthfeel. Well-hopped with a nice bitter balance that stands up against the sweetness and the roastedness. One can feel the alcohol through the malts. This beer has a lot of substance and is well worth trying. Very much recommended.

Thanks to Secret Santa for this gem. Dark beer with a foamy brown head. This left an oily coating when swirled in the glass. Coffee and chocolate nose. Lots of espresso coffee flavors, brown sugar sweetness, molassess. The lingering finish was like chewing on chocolate covered coffee beans.
