@ Horsens Ølfestival 2006. Black colour with a light brown head. Roasted alty, coffee bitter aroma with some chocolate sweetness and notes of hops. Coffee bitter flavor with a light sweetness and a hoppy dry finish. Kevin (2199) - Montana, USA - NOV 14, 2006
bottle from christiansa.
pitch black with a stunning sticky brown head. cascade like notes with coffee, grapefruit, caramel, alcohol, and light fudge. hops are active here.
hopped up roasted notes hit my tongue first, then some sugared notes. the hops are just a bit too dominant. alcohol is really up front. candy orange slice flavor here too. cocoa lingers with the bitter. yngwie (17053) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 On tap at Horsens Beerfestival. Black, with a small, tan head. Lots of mocha in the aroma, as well as hops and citrus. Hops, mocha, coffee, pine, citrus and fruityness in the flavor. Full bodied beer that went very well with brownies. It certainly proves that Raasted knows what they are doing. Rating: 8-4-8-4-16-4.

Bottle. It looks really cute in the glass, pitch black body and a lasting finger-thick tan head. Looks more or less clear. Considering it also leaves lacings, what more could you ask for from an imperial stout when it comes to appearance. The nose is quite heavy on piney hops with a good dash of citrus. Adding a good deal of quite mellow malty aromas, it certainly deserves an 8, with it’s mocha, coffee, heavy roasted malt and chocolate. There’s also a little toffee in the far back. Flavorwise, it’s more agressive on the malts, not as mellow as the aroma, without being brutal. There’s a quite heavy roasted maltyness, with a good drop of coffee coming stronger towards the finish, as well as a little bit of dark, bitter chocolate. There’s hops too, off course. Piney, dusty, citrusy hops adding a nice bitterness and some floral notes. Quite sweet it is too, the beer, sticky in the mouth, with so much sugar the hops and alcohol can’t cope with it all, but it’s in a good way. Sure full-bodied, with lots of coffee-like and hoppy bitterness in the finish. There’s also sugary sweetness, coffee and chocolate, but it takes some time for those flavors to establish. Some heat from the 10% ABV can be detected, but I guess that’s only appropriate. A really lovely beer, sure deserving it’s score, and it’s surprisingly easy to drink as well. (080526)

Draught - Black body, almost no head what there is, is brown; Very easy going, very hoppy nose some chocolate, malt and licorice behind but only very mellow; Super fresh sharp sparkle, slightly bitter, thin to soft texture; Very long finish with sweeter aromas of cinnamon, pine tree. Good beer, but lacks fill in all aspects. Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2006
