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 shared with northropfrye. I love the aroma, which is very deeply smoky and tasty smelling. Beautiful head. I like the flavour at first, which is sweetly smoky, but then it turns bitter and I’m not a fan of that aspect.

A great imperial stout. Pours an incredibly deep black with a thick brown head. Smells of vanilla and toffee. Taste changes drastically from start to finish. Starts very smooth, with some vanilla. Finishes smoky, with a slight tartness to it. Very good. Had in the bottle.

Pretty good. A little bit of smokey bitterness on the palate. Not much sweetness. Quite yum.

sulphursouls (20) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 20, 2014
It poured black, dark and rich. There was an aroma of roasted sweet liquorice, with hints of yeast, not much sweetness. The flavour started with some sweet vanilla, paused briefly and carried into a long after-taste of bitter coffee. Wonderful combination of flavours and transition.

Pours jet black with creamy brown head. Aroma is rich with dark roasted malt, chocolate, and piney hops. Dates, prunes, plums, and raisins are in the background. Taste is awesomely roasted bitterness with a perfectly balanced fruity sweetness. Pine and citrus hops provide a nice sharp bitterness as well. The palate is oily and slick with a full body, soft carbonation, and a long roasted malt and pine finish. An awesome imperial stout with great flavors and perfect balance. One of my new favorites. Can’t wait to drink the one I’m cellaring.

dambor (17) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2014
Pours black with a nice head (disappears pretty fast, which is pretty normal by 9% ABV). Smell: dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malts, pleasant liquor notes. Similar in the taste: roasted malts, chocolate, dark fruit - very creamy in taste. Pretty astringent in the end.
