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.

500ml bottle. Pours black with a creamy brown head with sticky long lasting lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, smoke, and caramel. Notes of leather smoke and chocolate. Flavour is sweet, mildly bitter long duration. very smooth. Nice!

Originally rated on 12/09/08. O pours a coal black body with a thick, creamy dark tan cap, with plenty of carbonation. Aroma is mostly milk chocolate with hints of coffee. Flavor starts out with a rather smoky almost alcohol/medicinal quality that quickly fades way to a slightly bitter chocolate middle and coffee finish. The medicinal taste brings down my score for taste and overall ratings but this is still a pretty decent imp. stout.

Rozgrzewa tak, że na policzkach pojawiły mi się rumieńce, a palce na klawiaturze plątały się jakbym wykonywał suitę Czajkowskiego. Piwo jest genialne w smaku. W zapachu bez wątpienia wyczujesz alkohol, ale być może też i zioła. Smak to poezja - gorzkie, chmielowe, czekoladowo-palone, ziołowe. To jedno z tych piw, za którym można postawić mocno świecącą żarówkę, a nawet mały promyk nie przedostanie się przez nie na drugą stronę. Jest jak czarna dziura, która swym ciężarem przyciąga nawet światło. Zdecydowanie zakrzywiło też czas - sączyłem je ponad godzinę zachwycając się każdym łykiem.

Pours a deep black and thin brown head. Nose is licorice. Aromas are roasted malts, licorice, cocoa, dark fruits, creamy notes. Low carbonation, oily texture. Long roasty and sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Uit de fles geschonken. Mooie imperial stout met smaken en geuren van geroosterde mout, koffie en chocola. Zacht, mooi gebalanceerd. Prima!

On tap at Archive for Armakeggon 2016. Looks and smells the part, deep roasted flavours and a lingering dark chocolate bitterness.

Pours very thick and dark with a thin caramel head. I did not detect strong aromas, but espresso coffee and dark chocolate are immediately present; same goes for taste. Really good beer, reminds me of the Rasputin and Narwhal, both great beers. Alcohol is extremely well balanced, not felt even when warming up. Will definitely but again.

Deze Russian imperial stout heeft een dessertgevoel. Dat komt door de stevige koffiesmaak en het viskeuze mondgevoel. Het bier is wat romig, waardoor je een bijzondere sensatie ervaart. Kandijsuiker en vanille zitten ook in het palet. Mooie balans tussen zoet en bitter.
