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.

Dès qu’on la verse on constate une consistence visqueuse. Une mousse brune recouvre unliquide bien noir. Elle laisse quelques traces. Un beau mélange olfactif construit autour du foncé; c’est-à-dire, grains rôtis, café espresso, en version allongée, mélasse verte, chocolat noir ainsi que des parfums floraux et herbacés. Moins visqueuse qu’attendue, mais bien corpulante. Les saveurs sont fidèles aux arômes, avec un beau complément; l’amertume, propre à chacun. C’est soyeux, c’est crémeux et par moment, ça goûte les raisins secs enrobés de chocolat (MA 27.11.18 Batch 1318) (1488-160615)

Pours black with small tan head. Immediate aroma of chocolate and a little earth. Mouthfeel is out of this world silky. Flavour is hot choc, a little coffee, well integrated bitterness and earth. Loved every drop.
