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.

1P .9Fl OZ Bottle. Pours dark chocolate brown, with a chocolate colored head that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma of chocolate, caramal, hops and a touch of coffee. Do you hear that? "Drink Me!" So with this I oblige. The first sip. Delectable. An intricate blend of crystal malts, chocolate, hops, and traces of barley with a hint of alcohol that comes through. The felling is sultry, smooth, silky, not medium, but not thick. The finish, is oh so brilliant. A crisp hop bitterness, along with chocolate to sweeten the deal on the close. Perfect for this cool night in Wisconsin. The warmth from the alcohol is flowing through me as I drink leaving a warm glow. Definitely will be trying this again.

Pours a deep black with a medium creamy dark tan head that left lacing. Aroma of roasted sweet malts, hops, chocolate and coffee notes. Flavors of dark roasted malts, coffee, bitter dark chocolate, pine, smooth with a touch of hop bitterness. This is a really smooth imperial stout.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2008 Top notch imperial stout. 16.9oz bottle. Full and rich, with a alcohol warming that increases as you drink it. Mellow and pretty drinkable for 9%, with a very intricate, crisp, hoppy chocolate sweet aftertaste. Creamy and silky, full of sweet malt extravagance.

Quevillon (2966) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2007
Bouteille de 500 ml, acheté à Tully’s Beer & Wine (Wells, Maine), le 10 juillet 07. Brune caramel brulé, peu de collet. Arome de réglisse épicé et de café malté doux. Goût de réglisse alcoolisé, café un peu amère avec une touche de vanille, arrière goût amère passable. C’est ma première bière de cette brasserie et de la Norvège, elle n’est pas pour moi une impérial typique mais très agréable à boire et je suis très heureux de l’avoir acheté. Bu le 11 novembre 07.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Bottled. Pours black with a huge dark brown head. Aroma is strong grassy hops, roasted notes, and chocolate. Flavor is a rich chocolate with a strong hop character mixed in. Kind of like pine trees and chocolate forming a bitter green mint. Above average body with a slightly oily mouthfeel.

Bottle. The darkest colour I’ve ever seen in a beer, pitch-black. Covered by a small brown head. Very nice aroma, tones of vanilla, chocolate & tobacco. Flavour of roasted malt & coffee. Medium to high bitterness. Excellent, sipped on this for 2 hours!

Suttree (6191) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Black, with a decent sized brown head. Big, intense aroma of fig, prune, coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is a bit woody, the fruity, then coffee, all well blended and tasty. Good stuff.
