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. Deep black pour, small khaki head. Aromas of roasted chocolate malt, hops, dark bittersweet chocoolate. Full mouthfeel again with chocolate presence. 75 IBU’s adds a nice hop bitterness. Alcohol lingers at the back of the palate. Really opens up after it warms a bit. Great stout

Aroma is fairly subdued. Very nice flavor, thick, some creaminess comes through. Tastes like a very strong porter. Great beer.

I have been waiting a while to try this beer. Bottle pours an opaque black with a dark tan head. The head was filled with foamy, large bubbles that left splatters of sticky lacing on the sides of the snifter. The smell was very robust with strong espresso scents and a lingering malt backbone. There were some faint hops that made it very enjoyable. A quick bittering hop flavor on the front of the tounge is quickly balanced by a nice dry malt flavor in the finish. Coating flavors of coffee, caramel and chocolate chips dance around. Strong alcohol presence as the beer warmed a bit. A nice Imperial Stout.

Black as hell. Can’t see any light through this thing. The head is darker than a lot of beers I’ve seen lately. Smells like a mix of coffe, burnt bread and chalk?! The flavor is full and charred with hints of chocolate, coffee, licorice and lingers on the tongue. Full mouthfeel and a finish that never stops.

Pours a dark brown with a reddish tan head. Head is fairly large for a higher Stout. Ashy taste. Finish is dry and roasted.

Pored from a 22 oz. bottle revealing a black dark color with a good tan head. Aroma of chocolate prevailed. Very smooth and pleasant on your palate. Flavor is very good with coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and all in a subtle. Not heavy alcohol or thick in your mouth either. Easy to drink but not as complex in taste as some other IRS.

Åh jeg elsker Imperial Stouts... Sort sort øl. Duft af Brændt malt, god humle og chokolade. Smagen er humlet, sødlig brændt, og imponerende blød. Tør varm og humlet eftersmag. Alcohol skjult godt Jeg må have nogle flere af dem.....

Liquid Solutions. Pours an intense black with a very nice dark tan head that leaves just the smallest of rings. Nose is of wonderful lightly roasted matls, oatmeal, weak coffee and chocolate. Medium bodied with a much softer roast than I was expecting...makes it very easy to drink. Alcohol is integrated well...and the finish has a nice roasted bitterness. Very good stout.
