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.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2020 Liquide noir sans mousse. Nez chocolat doux avec une touche de fruits secs. En bouche c'est une attaque ronde et envoûtante qui mêle des saveurs de dattes, raisins et de chocolat qui s'efface assez rapidement pour laisser place à une grosse amertume comme celle de la fève torréfiée ! Superbe !

GregMooreNH (3823) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 6, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2020 Pours black with one finger, tan head. Aroma is cocoa, molasses, vanilla and roast. Taste is chocolate and brown sugar, moving to roast and vanilla. Finish is vanilla, chocolate and brown sugar. Good stout.

Patersoi (323) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2020 Pours oily black and tan. Milk choc on the nose is inviting. Nice mouth feel to start with, smooth. Lots of chocolate, vanilla but an undertone of dates and raisins. Medium length finish with some alcohol warmth but a point or two knocked off for some sweet clagginess on the finish.

Olorin (267) - Graz, AUSTRIA - MAY 29, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2020 330 ml bottle. A mighty brew with creamy mouthfeel, rich of flavour from chocolate, espresso, light roast and vanilla. Rather sweet at first glance, but not persistent due to well balanced bitterness. Great one!

FrothyTickers24 (719) - BELGIUM - APR 2, 2020
UPDATED: APR 2, 2020 Zwart bier met een beperkte Mokka schuimkraag. Geroosterde koffie, zwarte chocolade. Niet zoet, bittere afdronk

Kiezmar (2470) - Krakow, POLAND - MAR 17, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2020 Popiołowe, delikatnie aż dymne jakby torfowe. Ciała mało, dużo espresso, jakieś owocki. Wytawny finisz, % trochę grzeją. No przyzwoicie.

IPAMaestro32 (130) - Beder, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2020 [Tasting - Beder] Aroma: Moderate sweet, roasted malts, chocolate and a hint of coffee Appearance: Pitch black with a fast-disappearing small brown head Taste: Moderate sweet and moderately bitter, roasted malts and chocolate ending in a coffee bitterness Mouthfeel: Creamy texture with soft-no carbonation Overall: Enjoyable Imperial Stout :)

FrothyTeam26 (18) - - DEC 5, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2019 Dark beer with creamy brown head. Very good combination with chocolate filling and roasted malt bitterness. Very good

Wendigo (3021) - Bratislava, SLOVAKIA - NOV 18, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2019 Bottle from Cunningham as part of Eu local swap 3/2019, thanks. Malty aroma and taste, chocolate, cocoa, light coffee, roasty notes, medium bitter, light sweet notes. Full body, malty chocolate bitter sweet finish with vanilla and light warming alcohol notes. Good.

KevinReddirt (755) - Midland, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2019 I spotted this bottle from Nogne O when leaving Bergen on our trip home this summer. Likely my first Norwegian imperial stout, let us see how they do it. I see on the label that the .5 liter bottle was filled on February 13 of this year. The glass is a snifter, no particular reason. A regal black in color, viscous, with a spindly circle of eggshell brown foam. A good start with the smell, dark chocolate, wheat and perhaps some tobacco. And the drink speaks. Bakers chocolate, malt, smoke, cereal and a bit of hard candy. Good but not inspired.
