COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

Ottima imperial Porter, come sempre quando si parla della De Molen. Sia al naso che in bocca sentori di caffè, caffé bruciato, cacao, un tocco di cioccolato, tanto liquoroso. Unica nota negativa, la trovo leggermente più acquosa rispetto alle altre del suo genere, e con bollicine quasi nulle. Per il resto, un capolavoro!

Dark brown, no head. Aroma of malt and peat. Heavy body, no carbonation. Taste is sweet.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Rask0lnikov (502) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2016
Dark brown, almost black colour. Thin head. Lots of caramel, toffee, dark fruits, hints of berries, hints of sourness in the aroma. Hints of caramel, dark fruits, hints of coffee, toffee. Coffee and some dark fruits in the end. Liqeury hints and caramel in the aftertaste. Low carbonated, rather heavy bodied, quite well balanced beer.

Cask. Pours black with a thin tan head subsiding average. Scent is old ale, emphasis grain over wood. Taste is light resin and a bit sour with nice grainy, yeasty and toffee body. Mouthfeel is amazing, soft like velvet. Finish is clean and a bit ethanol. Very great beer.

prawlie (1447) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2016
Bottle. Black with an initial bubbly head that rapidly vanishes. Lovely on the palate, sticky and hints of figs and molasses. Nice and complex.

Black colour, minimal beige head. Aroma of caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, dried fruits, vanilla, cocoa, rum, touch of alcohol. Sweet taste with light dryness and mild hoppy bitterness in finish and dry bitter aftertaste with roast. Full body and soft carbonation. Rich and complex porter, very drinkable and enjoyable.

Wygląd: czarne nieprzejrzyste, piana szybko opada. Aromat: czekolada, praliny, subtelna nuta kawy, wanilia. Smak: praliny czekoladowe, likier, kawa z mlekiem, wanilia. Goryczka lekko palona.

Taste: chocolate pralines, liqueur, coffee with milk, vanilla. Palate: full, velvety, smooth.. Excellent beer.

MonsterMagnet (994) - NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2016
Bottle, pours very dark brown with a cream ring. Lots of chocolate, dark fruit, brown bread, red berries, brown sugar. Sweet, with medium to heavy bitterness, oily texture, lingering, boozy chocolate mocha finish. Nice, but not the top beer I hoped for.
