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.

16.9 oz bottle into my snifter. Aggressive pour produces an opaque black brew with a thick 4 finger dark brown head that dissipated quickly. Beautiful aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, toffee, dark dried fruits and crisp piney hops. Great flavors of dark cocoa, roasted malts, dried raisins and coffee. A little molasses and bitter hops in the finish. Nice moderately thick mouthfeel. Average carbonation, a delightly drinkable and delicious imperial stout. My first brew from Nogne O and it won’t very lasts would love to try it barrel aged

Pours black with a small but lingering brown foam. Well-rounded "woody" aroma of coffee, roasted malt, dried fruit and a hint of rutabaga (of all things). Medium body, oily texture, soft/avg carbonation. Taste kicks off with a strong but pleasant roasted bitterness and notes of coffee and dark chocolate. Long smoky finish with some alcohol.

500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Tiny brown head with good lacing. Opaque brown/black body. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, toffee, burned oak and alcohol. Mostly sweet on the tongue. Long lasting grassy hop aftertaste. Very creamy on the palate. Simply excellent!

Grzesiek79 (3290) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 12, 2014
No to intensywne piwo czarnej glebokiej barwy Ze spora oblepiajaca bezowo brazowa piana jest tresciwe slodkawe i palono gozkie. Kawowe czekoladowe i lekko kwaskowe. Zapach kawy mocno palonej i jakby aromat palonej gumy czy opony samochodowej. Finisz juz jest wytrawny srogo gozki i bardzo dlugi z lekkim slodkawym posmakiem na ustach. Moc alkoholu niewyczuwalna ale lekko rozgrzewa w przelyku.

Rototo64 (17) - Mouguerre, FRANCE - OCT 31, 2014
Une magnifique mousse marronasse se forme, quoique pas trés persistante.. Au nez, c’est cacao, café, sympa mais pas flamboyant, en bouche on sent la carbonation, le cacao, puis le café, un bon café bien fort, un amertume , légerement acide, la longueur en bouche n’est pas énorme, c’est sympa mais un peu faiblard a mon gout... Est ce que j’avais un trop bon souvenir de la version viellie en fut? C’est trés possible.. Le viellissement en fut ne rend pas un bière mauvaise bonne, mais embellit souvent une bonne bière

Bottle from Mogwai Mat & Bar. Smell of bourbon, chocolates and vanilla. Pours black with a medium brown head. Taste is full with some chocolates, roasted malts and some vanilla. Palate offers a full body which sticks to the tongue. Overall a really nice Imperial Stout. Very tasteful!
