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's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 17/20

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.

bjorn77 (642) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 29, 2017
Aromat: mocny, intensywny, slodki, duzo czekolady gorzkiej i deserowej, praliny, kawa, slody palone, bardzo przyjemny zapach. Wyglad: czarne, nieprzejrzyste, dosyc wysoka, drobnopecherzykowa piana, w kolorze jasnobrunatnym. Smak: pólwytrawne, kawa, palony slód, kawa zbozowa, umami, czekolada gorzka, suszona sliwka, troche pralinek. Pelne, gladkie, dobrze ulozone, sporo palonej goryczy, lekka cierpkosc od slodów palonych, na finiszu gorzkawe. Bardzo poprawne piwo, wszystko w nim jest w porzadku, ale nie ma tu nic niezwyklego, stad dziwia mnie tak wysokie oceny tego piwa. Jak dla mnie brak mu troche glebi, czegos wyrózniajacego go od innych piw. I ciala moglo by byc wiecej. Jak dla mnie tylko dobre. 8/4/7/4/14

Bottle. Very dark brow with light coffee head. A superbly balanced nose of brown malt, chocolate, burnt malt and sweet vanilla. Medium body, slick palate. Chocolate and vanilla with just a hint of burnt malt. Really an outstanding imperial stout.

Dégustée avec mon petit Kittenbieer dans un verre Les 3 Loups. Température de début 9 à 10°. Superbe robe opaque de couleur ébène surmontée d’une belle mousse café peu persistante; bonne carbonatation. Nez exceptionnel offrant des arômes de grand café mêlé à des notes chocolatées et de fruits noirs : prunes, mûres. Le goût atteint des sommets de finesse : saveurs de torréfaction et discrètes touches houblonnées; l’équilibre est idéal et le velouté se combine à un caractère plus terroir. La finale est très longue et tout aussi savoureuse sur des sensations grillées. La puissance et la profondeur du Black Metal Norvégien faites bière!!!! 18,5/20
