Review: Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout

Nøgne Ø Imperial Stout from Nøgne Ø - det kompromissløse bryggeri
Rating: A-

My 300th review, hard to believe... Picked up after a very long day. Poured into a Samuel Smith's nonic.

Appearance: Dark head over an incredibly dark body. Completely opaque, even when held up to a light bulb. Exceptional retention and lacing.

Smell: Coffee and bitter roast aroma.

Taste: Acidic. Flavor a bit lighter than I'd expect from the color, but good. Fairly typical chocolate & coffee, finishes bitter.

Mouthfeel: Full and creamy. Sticks to the inside of your mouth.

Drinkability: Good, particularly after a long day like this one. I'd anticipated planning out my 300th review, picking something in advance, and all that, but after such a long day this did just as well.

Serving type: bottle
