COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottiglia. Colore nero impenetrabile con una schiuma beige molto compatta e mediamente persistente, al naso esplode subito con il caffè seguito da cioccolato amaro, caramello e bruciato, forse anche qualcosa di whiskey, in bocca si ripresenta uguale con un corpo molto pronunciato e oleoso, i suoi 9 gradi si nascondono molto bene. Birra fantastica e ben bilanciata.

Black as night with a small rich brown head. The nose is filled with heaps of chocolate and roasted coffee with light vanilla and licorice notes. Tons of roasted malt, dark chocolate and some smoke. Full bodied. The taste is extremely rich with a nice bitter after-taste, with the roasted malt delivering more coffee character than it does chocolate.

Poured from a keg. Not bad, deep black color, coffee and chocolate aroma, a little too bitter going down.

500ml bottle, thanks to Gunnar! Pours black with big tan head. Aroma is big and roasty. Taste is of course flavoursome, although perhaps not as thick as expected. Not a million miles away from their porter and exceptionally drinkable for the strength. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts all represented and beautifully balanced.
