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.

RB#1100: 50 cL bottle (batch 286). Pours black with a creamy chocolate brown head, very inviting look. Rather hops citrus and vaguely peach fruity aroma. Creamy mouthfeel. Clear chocolate flavoured with a decent hops fruity- and bitterness. A slight touch of coffee towards the finish. Bitter and roasted malt finish with a whiff of smoke. Very nice.

Fluxing (485) - POLAND - APR 19, 2015
Kolor czarny, calkowicie nieprzejrzyste. Piana bardzo obfita, pozostawia cienka warstwe. W aromacie kawa, palonosc, gorzka czekolada, mleko, sliwki, rodzynki, morele, suszone owoce, lekka mieta, sporo slodkosci, jest bardzo dobrze. W odczuciu srednio wysycone, pelne, geste, gladkie. W smaku mamy powtorke z aromatu, ale bardziej wychodzi kwasnosc ciemnych slodow i aromaty kawowo-kakaowe (zdecydowanie mniej owocow niz w aromacie). Goryczka srednia, ziemista, ziolowa, mietowa i delikatnie alkoholowa.

Roasty, with burnt sugar, slight espresso, and roasted barley flavors. Straightforward.

Sdaniel90 (483) - Mexico City, MEXICO - APR 11, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. Opaque black with a frothy brown head. Sweet, roasted aroma with hints of chocolate, alcohol, coffee and a hint of spices. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Rich and thick, with tremendous roasted and coffee character. Heavy alcohol bitterness, but well balanced in a magnificent finish.
