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.

Bottle @ home....It pours clear pitch black with almost no head at all...... The aroma is roasted malt, coffee and hops.... The flavor is hoppy, hard roasted malt and coffee..... quite flat mouthfeel....

Pitch black pour with no head at all. Aroma is sour with berries and some rubber. Flavour has glue, alcohol, some burned malt and rubber. Like a Mikkeller Black light. What is this shit? Probably a bad bottle.

375ml bottle from Barley Wine, Copenhagen

Pours pitch black with a bubbly head. Aroma of solvent notes, roasted malts, some fruity notes and glue. Taste is stingy and sour with some roasty notes, hints of hops and berries. Strong roasty and boozy finish with notes of hops and fruits. Unbalanced, not very tasty. Perhaps has seen its best days.

lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2012
375 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, something sour and quite interesting birch leaves. Flavour of roasted malts, very disturbing glue, sour berries, grass, overly ripe mango and bubblegum. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel and low carbonation. Very, very weird. Not pleasant at all. A bad bottle, perhaps?

375 ml bottle. BBE 01.09.2015.
Pours dark red, almost black color with small head. Aroma of chocolate, sourish dark berries, dark toasted malts, mild ripe fruits, birch and caramel. Flavor of chocolate, dark toasted malts, dark berries, cocoa and some glue notes. Unbalanced and quite odd. Might be a bad bottle.

Bottle @ René’s house. Thanks. Deep brown appearance with a small tan head. Minty, spruce, herbal, light anise, chocolate aroma. Pretty thin, minty, piney, herbal, chocolate flavor. Too thin at this point.

Re-rate from bottle Old label version. The black pour yields no head aside from a few soapy bubbles on the rim of the glass. The first thing I notice about the aroma is how hoppy it is - huge citrus and lemon peel note up front. Then tarmac, roast and chocolate notes from the malt - seems like a pretty high percentage of hard roasted malts, which seems archetypical for a lot of Danish imperial stouts. A bit of malt complexity of berries, syrup and coffee, but the hops and the hard roast takes the picture. The taste is very bitter at first sip - a lot of hop presence, both citrus and grape taste notes, but also a vast bitterness. Then the sweetness takes over, and malt accentuated at that. Taste notes are chocolate, caramel, amaretto, Kaluha, quite some residual sweetness. In the finish, the more roasted malt notes amplify - tarmac, cold coffee, raw roasty bitterness along with the hoppy bitterness. Body is a bit thin and watery, which is further exposed by the lack of carbonation. More body, less hops, get rid of some of the most roasted malts and you have a very solid stout. But still room for improvement.

Original rating Tap on CBF 2010. Aroma has lots of sweetness and dark fruits, caramel, fudge, liquorice, figs, dates, sweet finnish liquorice. Taste has liquorice, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, hoppy bitterness, nice balance. (8-3-8-3-16)

rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2012
Style et résumé: Imperial stout danois au goût danois ni plus ni moins.
Comment: Bouteille de 375ml avec bouchon de plastique style liège, encore une fois un gros merci à Patrick.
Description: Cette bière est brune foncée à la limite d’être noire. Le nez est peu complexe avec des notes de grains rôtis et malheureusement d’alcool. La bouche est ronde sans être crémeuse, il y a du chocolat, du grain rôti, du café. La texture est correcte mais pourrait être plus enveloppée. Unanimement moins réussie que la version vieillie en fût de chêne. La présence de houblons américains est difficile à s’appercevoir.
Note: 7/10

(Une bouteille de 37.5 cl offerte par dresden et dégustée avec mon vieux pote Yan) Un liquide qui présente sa robe brune très foncée, soumise à quelques reflets rouges flamboyants. Une petite mousse évanescente. Un nez de grains foncés et une touche d’oxydation. Très peu de houblons et quelques vapeurs d’alcool. Pas mauvais mais rien de très frais, je suppose. Des saveurs plutôt douces de grains rôtis, d’alcool et de chocolat. Les houblons sont davantage amérisants que parfumés. En bouche, un liquide au corps plutôt moyen avec un apport silencieux des bulles. Une texture légèrement huileuse. Une finale sur des notes finement oxydées et sur des notes de vin rouge. Un produit correct, sans plus. Très loin de la version vieillie en fût qui était très parfumée par les houblons et complexifiée par les malts et le chêne.
