COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: Raasted Imperialt Stout er en dyb sort øl med chokoladefarvet kraftigt skum og kraftig duft og smag af både de ristede malte og den store mængde humle. Under brygningen er benyttet de amerikanske humletyper Chinook, Centennial, Amarillo og Cascade. Øllet er desuden kraftigt tørhumlet med Cascade. Øllet er specielt velegnet til kraftige chokoladedesserter, hvor de ristede malte meget fint komplementerer chokoladen.

English: Imperial Stout is a deep black beer with a chocolatecoloured huge head. Has a powerful aroma and flavour of as well the roasted malts and the huge amounts of hops. While brewing the american hops Chinook, Centennial, Amarillo and Cascade are used. The beer is dryhopped with loads of Cascade.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 26, 2007
Bottle at Ølbaren shared wit yespr. Pitch black colour with a very nice darkish brown creamy head. Aroma of roasted coffee, bitter hops, bitter chocolate and roasty malt. Flavour is fresh with a good roasty maltiness, dry bitter hoppiness, lovely dark bitter chocolate, some liquorice. Robust mother of a stout indeed! Nice up and down roasty sweet chocolate hoppy brew.

Maria (10205) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2007
Picth black with a dark, creamy and nice head. The aroma has notes of dark roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The mouthfeel is full and the flavour has bitter, dark chocolate, licorice, coffee a hint of plums and a very long finish, where the chocolate and bitterness are nice and harmonic. Very nice.1916

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2011
2011-01-29. Black body leaves an oily film on the glass, modest foamy tan head. 4+ Modest roasty aroma, light alcohol, sweet malt. 7+ Flaovur is fairly bitter, both from a bit of roast and a good helping of hoppy bitterness. Malt core takes a back seat to the hops, but it has a lovely caramel/sweet malt moment in the middle somewhere. 7+ Smooth average palate. An enjoyable imperial stout, somewhat simplistic at times but fairly drinkable. Bottle via trade with Vertical Bacon Strips

Bottle that the brewer kindly gave to me when I visited the brewery in Denmark back in Sept 08, along with the shirt off of his back, many thanks to Mr Raasted youre a gentleman. Pours pitch black with a light beige head, mmmhhh this is wonderfully hoppy and fascinating to try straight after the Brewdog Isle of Arran. There is a nice juiciness from those North American hops that gets stuck straight into the roasty bitter snap. This stuff like the Brewdog beer is very thick leaving an oil slick down the glass. You drink this and wonder whether in the way that you get garlic breath from partaking off too much garlicky food whether this could happen with the hops, I do a hoppy burp and ponder that one, great stuff.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2007
Dark black beer, rich aroma with lots of earthy roastiness in the nose. Very dusty as well. Chewy licorice and heavy roasted malts. Charred malts over a fairly thick but simple base. Seems quite European in style.

JorisPPattyn (9134) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2007
Huge beige head; jet-black beer. USA C-hops; dry, grapefruit, grapes, hop bales. Hops, liquorice, meaty esters, dark roasted grains, ending in drop and very dry. Well-bodied, slick and viscous; tinge of alcohol. Dry à souhait . Very good, American-typed (hyped?) Imperial Stout.

MartinT (8987) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This unctuous Imperial Stout creates a very enjoyable sipping experience with its fruity molasses and hoisin sauce-like sweet spiciness that seamlessly leads to the synchronized splash of roasted malts, piney hoppiness and alcohol warmth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy layer of foam laces atop the dark brown-tinted blackness.
-Carbonation is quite soft, letting the plump dextrins take a lot of room on the tongue.
-The sweet spiciness is also redolent of vanilla.
-I found the last half of each sip (that aforementioned splash) is more compelling than the first (mostly body and sweetness).
-The aroma is a tad too simple for my tastes, and does not showcase that last half of each sip much, focusing on light chocolate and molasses.
-Malt flavors could be more complex, even though their caramel develops interesting spicy angles when paired with the yeast and hops.
-The finishing bitterness lingers nicely.

Bottle; best before 07/05/2009.
