3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Vintage bottle , big thanks to Dennoman for the epic FULL 18CL VINTAGE BOTTLE TASTING :D , Thanks again my friend !
Aroma : vanilla, sweet, smells more like a barley wine than an imperial porter, slight oxidation
Taste : caramel, malts, little bit of roasted malts ( phieuw,, finally some porter flavours :p ), nice oakey features, good but i think the best flavours have allready faded pretty much.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottled, 18 cl, 666 bottles made. Cant find any more info, but I think it’s about 3 years old. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma is quite typical old style de Molen dark imperial stuff, lovely chocolate, some roast but not much, bit coffee, sweet toffee, some vanilla. Wow, absolutely stunning. Just like the best of imperial stouts (or porters) smell. Bit sweet, bit dry astringent in the roast and coffee. Chocolaty, velvet, slight boozy. Aroma is fantastic, taste is a bit too dry for me, could have used slight more sweetness. But it’s an absolute treat, world class stuff.
