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. Aroma is milky chocolate, light plum, roasted. Pitch black colour. Taste is quite chewy, nurturing. Strong chocolate and roasted flavours. Light burnt, light fruity. Very easily drinkable with supporting carbonation. Very good beer.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2014
(Bottle): Pours pitch black with a tan head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruits, milky coffee, leather, smoke, vanilla, bread. Flavour is a big sweet bomb of chocolate and dark fruit flavours initially but gives way to a malty, creamy, biscuity middle with a smokey, leather and surprisingly - somewhat hoppy finish. Balance is perfect, body is full & creamy. Absolutely love Nogne O beers and this one has blown me away.

Frode (200) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle 50 cl. Batch 1101.
Black, with brown head. Malty, caramel, toast, roasty, chocolate, and a touch of citrus. Moderate sweet and bitter taste. Finishing off with pouring in the sediments gives it a rough, but nice, extra bitterness.

SPDickerman (920) - Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Pours pitch black with a small tan fizz. Smells of licorice or anise, without the typical roast character of imperial stouts. Taste is licorice, subtle hints of fruit and molasses. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout finishes with a very subtle tangy fruitiness.

BOTTLE 50CL from gunnar - many thanks! Look: pitch black with a big thick espresso frothy to creamy head. Aroma: intense, leather?, roasted, salty chocolate, licorice, burnt wood, smoked dried fruit. Taste: roasted, moderate "roasted" acidity, light sweetness, light to moderate hop bitterness.

A honest no-whisky barrel no-bullshit impy.

AWISLguy (1197) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2014
500ml bottle from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a chunky black with a foamy brown head leaving streaks of lace. Aroma has chocolate, caramel, nuts, and later in the glass, some smokiness comes through. Taste is of sweet caramel, dark chocolate, a nuttiness, with some roast and some meat smoke. Richer and smokier further down in the glass. Full bodied. Finishes in a nice bitter-sweet blend, with salty smoke. Alcohol is understated. Solid impy stout with an atypical smoke presence.

Pours in deep black color body with huge brown creamy head. Aroma has tons of roasty notes, chocolate, nutty, toffee, clean. Taste is easy going chocolate sweetness, notes of dark chocolate, light grassy bitterness. Cocoa dust on the tongue. Body is full, high carbonation.
