4.25/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours a murky pitch black, light can not penetrate! Thin mocha head that dissipates very quickly. Not much lacing. Aromas of bitter coffee, dark chocolate, fortified wine, toffee, dark stone fruit, a lot going on in the aroma. Palate opens with strong roasted coffee with gobs of chocolate, toffee, stone fruit, red wine. Hints of spice and soy sauce. You can feel the 16% ABV. Smooth, slick mouthfeel, full bodied with no carbonation to speak of. Overall, an outstanding Imperial Stout, as complex as the finest barrel aged stout and as drinkable as a much lower ABV stout. Nice work Nøgne Ø!

4.04/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from an 8.5 bottle bottle into an Utopias snifter. Purchased in Attleboro, MA.

Appearance - Pours a deep brown, nearly opaque body with a light mocha head that reduces pretty slowly to leave a ring of foam.

Smell - Dark fruits, coffee, caramel and burnt sugar, some soy, toffee, molasses, some vanilla. The aroma is subdued but complex.

Taste - Initially this is quite sweet.. brown sugar, vanilla, milk chocolate upfront. This transcends to dark fruits, then a super roasty, charred malt, burnt coffee flavor that sticks around for a while.

M- For such a high ABV, this isn't super thick. Lightly carbonated.

I couldn't quite get past the super sweet flavor of this beer. Other than that, pretty complex. Not sure it was worth the price for such a small bottle.
