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.

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.

Tasted blind at Sk8vikings amazing Porter/Stout tasting - Huge head on black body, brown head; The nose is a bit closed but incredibly deep and complex, lots of dry hop: pine, resin, some flowers, apple, pear, dried spices thyme, great nose that might open with time (years); Super balanced soft a little bitter body; Into very long finish with fresh fruity hop on top of licorice, dry character of dry pine. Great beer.

Courtesy of Papsoe <!-- P --> Aroma is burnt malts and sweet fruit (very blueberry accented) that is highly concentrated. Deep black with a compact mocha head. Fore is fruit accented chocolate...rather like one of those fruit filled Cadbury Bars. Mild coffee...dark chocolate and ripe dark fruits last through all ranges...very different approach than the American Imperial stouts. I rather like the variation and that nearly blueberry fruitiness is a compliment to the base burnt dark malt and coffee flavors. very nice.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2009 Pours black with a nice brown head. Sweet with aromas of dark chocolate and liquirish. Also aromas roasted malts and some caramel. Medium to low carbonation. Full bodied. Hoppy finish with a hint of tobacco in the very late finish. Delicious.

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.
