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.

Rune (8702) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2008
250ml draught at Plan B, Copenhagen. Short brownish layer over a deep ink-black body. Very rich in aroma and flavour. Dark fruits and notes of liquorice in aroma. Dark hopped flavour paired with bitter chocolate and roasted coffee beans. Spices play a part, too. Winey mouthfeel and full bodied. Pretty masked alcohol. A real pleasure to drink this one (02.06.2008).

Bottle 375ml @ home
Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, coffee and fruity hops. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 Sampled in a blind 25 imperial stout tasting, Feb 2008
Fruity and sweet candied nose of cherry, plum, and some grassy hops. Thick, resinous and frothy, mildly hoppy/bitter, with some mildly sweet chocolate syrup, black cherry flavoring, and overall low levels of roast/char/ash, which I prefer. The chocolate note had me guessing Foothills, but I was wrong. One of the better showings in the tastings.
7/4/7/4/15 = 3.7

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.

jercraigs (8153) - 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

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.

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.

375mL bottle, pours black with a tan head. Rich aroma of roasted malt, unusually strong hops, coffee and alcohol. Flavour of rich roasted malt, strong hops, bitter chocolate, coffee - extremely complex and rich palate. Amazing imperial stout.

Skinnyviking (7432) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle. Brown high creamy and long lasting head. Pitch black body. Choccolate hops aroma. Surprisingly weak chccolate flavor with a bitter hops aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol very well hidden. I would never have guessed the alcohol percentage.

DruncanVeasey (7332) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle from Briskeby Vinmonopolet, Oslo. Oily pitch with a yellowy rim. Aroma coal, Marmite, carbonised toast, oaky sweetness. Deep, mellow and thoroughly roasted with an underlying apple yeastiness, custard on burnt toast, lingering pistachio cinders. Clinging and burnt, some retronasal high alcohol and tongue-numbing booze. Earthy and burnt, but mellow.
