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. Cappuccino head forms when poured;.whiffs of caramel, raisins, coffee. Taste is round as the expected bitterness is nicely balanced by almost fruity and nutty notes. Fantastically pleasant!

Gubihumle (540) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2015
Flaske. Farven er sort som natten. Aromaen er kaffe, chokolade og ristet malt, og smagen er ligesådan. Eftersmagen er sødlig bitter. En virkelig lækker imperial stout.

Black colour, thick brown-ish head. Roasted, almost burnt aroma with some notes of berries and vanilla. Coffee and chocolate dominates the flavour. Some nutty hints. Sweet in finish.

0,5 bottle. Pours dark brown/black color with small, brown, chocolate like head. Aroma is very rich, coffee, chocolate, plum. Flavor is light to medium sweet, medium chocolate bitter. Long chocolate bittersweet finish. Body is full, oily texture. Another great example of imperial stout. Fantastic.

Procent (500) - POLAND - NOV 22, 2015
(Leżakowane 1,5 roku) Doskonały aromat likieru, cherry, czekolady, intensywny, głęboki. Barwa czarna, bardzo ładna, drobnopęcherzykowa, beżowa piana. W smaku już czuć inne nuty - jest zdecydowanie bardziej palone, nuty likerowe jednak także obecne, jest cherry, i jest też lekka kawowa kwaśność. Jest też sporo mlecznej czekolady. Jedyne co przeszkadza to jakiś fenol, który wprowadza nieco apteki. Poza tym bardzo porządny stout. Dużo ciała, wysycenie średnie ku wysokiemu.
