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.

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.

nightrider (754) - encinitas, California, USA - JAN 5, 2008
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.

jdjuice (500) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - DEC 31, 2007
Pours black with the darkest head I’ve ever seen on beer. Also the thickest beer I’ve had the pleasure of tasting. Dominated by coffee and chocolate, but lacking a lot of that vinous bitterness/sourness that usually accompanies such deep flavors. Has an excellent malty bitterness that rounds out the beer quite nicely, and the alcohol is hidden perfectly. Truly a wonderful desert winter warmer.

as (180) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - DEC 30, 2007
Had the luck of trying this while visiting a friend in Norway. A real gem. Totally black, with a nice looking and long lasting creamy brown head. Complex and strong aroma, predominantly malty with dark chocolate, coffee and all the usual flavors found in beers like this one. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. Magnificent, a real representative of the style.

Bottle shared with tupalev. My bottle. Deep black with a small dark tan head. Aroma is big and roasty with notes of dark sugar, chocolate, and hops. Full bodied. Flavour - wow, that’s good! Very full and lush, with notes of coffee, chocolate, dark malt, licorice, and a lot of hops. Excellent!

Bottle, thanks so much for sharing Greg!!! Nice rich aroma, lots of malt and some hops. Pitch black, very very dark brown head. Great taste - tons of hops, tons of rich malt. Not much else to say, this is how you do an extraordinary imperial stout, well done Nogne.
