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.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2008
Thick, oily black mass seeps into the snifter with a thick matter under a tan, iced khaki head. Aroma tells us of bittersweet chocolate, vanilla beans and mocha grinds. Licorice and blackberries emit a dark, fruity, aromatic tale. Flavor comes in thick and bitter. Unsweetened cocoa slabs, licorice port sauce and a coffee crust that’s parted from tiramisu ride on its coattails. Heavy mouthfeel tangibly thickens as it’s squeezed path the front teeth gap. Espresso soot and silk, dark chocolate and condensed café sludge sing long unto the night.

Wyraźny alkohol, wytrawne, zdominowane przez nieco popiołową paloność. Bardzo proste i totalnie przeciętne piwo.

vincentvega72 (617) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2017
Mooi zwart bier (lijkt wel motorolie) met dikke mokkakleurige schuimkraag die langzaamaan inzakt tot fijn laagje. Aroma van (geroosterde) koffiebonen, hout, licht vineus. Volle gebrande (mout)smaak, donkere chocolade, tabak, rook, leer. Goed bittere afdronk die redelijk lang blijft hangen. Als deze nog iets dikker van textuur was geweest dan had ie nog hoger gescoord (enige "min"puntje). Topstout

kaserov (526) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 14, 2017
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de tres dedos de grosor (compacta, cremosa y de buena retención). Carbonatación media (más sutil en boca). Textura cremosa. Aroma torrefacto muy suave, a chocolate, vainilla y algo de licor. Sabor dulce, a chocolate, vainilla y final mínimamente amargo y licoroso (en el buen sentido). Rica pero nada del otro mundo.

Jesper86 (103) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2017
UPDATED: APR 10, 2017 Very dark intense colour with not much, buy very brown, foam. A lot of espresso and dark chocolate. Also charcoal, bread and raisins. Certainly not too sweet. Bitterness is present, but balanced. Subtle acidity (like in good espresso) too.

Creamy beer with an amazing palate sensation and a strong coffee aroma. You can also feel the alcohol a bit. The taste is a bit salty, but definitely pleasant. Great beer.

Wat me bevalt aan deze Imperial Stout is de bitterheid en de licht zure toets. In de smaak: vanille, geroosterd gerst, licht aangebrande smaak, hint koffie, hint chocolade. Mooie balans. Licht romig.
