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.

Nice rocky brown head. Smells of vanilla, citrus hoppiness, dark chocolate. Tastes of dark fruit, fruitcake, chocolate, shifts to a tangy dark malt and hoppy bitterness and leaves behind a pleasant lingering citrus hop bitterness. Relatively light mouthfeel for what I would expect from an imperial russian stout, but not necessarily a bad thing. Very easy to drink.

Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a glass. Black with small beige head, medium/thick body, lower carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is dark malt, coffee, and dark chocolate.

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.

Exeptional with an Oreo cake. The heavy chocolate beer taste is just perfect ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

rikstar (2118) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2016
0,5l fles gedeeld met lion. Zwart met een licht bruine kraag. Geur en smaak mooi in balans tussen zoet en bitter ook gebrande smaken mooi geflankeerd met de cacao en tabak. Beetje kerosine toen het bier wat koud was, deze verdween echter snel. Schoolvoorbeeld van een imperial stout

Hyvin tummanruskea, miltei musta olut pienehköllä beigellä vaahdolla, joka jättää hieman pitsiä. Tuoksussa vahvasti salmiakkia, joka peittää muut tuoksut aika hyvin alleen. Maultaan kauttaaltaan aika kuiva, kahvia ja katkeroa sekä hieman alkoholia. Turhan yksiulotteinen, ja ehkä itselle sitten sopivat paremmin kauttaaltaan pehmeämmät ja asteen verran makeammat tekeleet. Hyväähän tämä on, mutta ei vastannut odotuksia.

PowY (146) - - AUG 7, 2016
500 ml bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a light brown to brown creamy head. The aroma is rather mild with roasted malts (mild coffee). Full body with light carbonation. Medium to heavy sweetness along with some alcohol albeit not to much for the high ABV. The taste is heavily malty of brown sugar, molasse, some nuts in honey and coffee. Very aromatic and full of different flavors but never crushing. Extremely good beer.

butelka, warka z 13-01-2016. Spora, niebrzydka piana, praktycznie czarne piwo. aromaty o dziwo nie zrobily na mnie specjalnego wrazenia - kawa zbozowa dominuje. jest troche ciemnych owocow swiezych i suszonych, dosc duzo palonosci, jest troche... cholera wie czego ale niesympatycznego w odbiorze (siarka? po pol roku? niemozliwe chyba... ale nie wiem co to), jakies mineralno-ziemiste nutki, czekolada... nie jest to jakies bardzo intensywne. w ustach jest lepiej, bo juz nie ma nieprzyjemnych wrazen, a te pozytywne, wzbogacone nawet (np rodzynki, chleb) sa intensywniejsze. srednio ciala. nisko wysycone. lekki alkohol, dosc szlachetny, rumowy w odbiorze. goryczka odnotowywalna... takie ciut FES’owate to piwo. bdb
