Ölbeat 040: Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout

Brewery: Nøgne Ø
Country: Norway
Style: Imperial Stout
Abv: 9 %
Excellence looks like this: the front...

What about the beer?
Colour is delicious thick black with medium beige head. Aroma has black coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malts.Taste gets a heavily bitter hoppy start that stays in front long. Roasted chocolate malts grow slowly in the mouth, strong black coffee and salty chocolate enter later. Dry bitterness comes back in the end. Aftertaste has long-lasting roasty malts and bitterness.

The beer is a thick and complex combination of strong elements. Everything has lots of weight, nothing is left half-way. Magnificent, extremely enjoyable and very slow brew.

...and the back. Now - get one!


Black, heavy, strong, aggressive. The matching song wasn't hard to choose - taste the beer and find the reason:

Metallica: Wherever I May Roam (YouTube)

From the 1991 album Metallica, the song was written by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich.
