Rating from note. Bottle. Black, tarred beer with a golden thick head and a sweet, caramel-like aroma. Taste is awesome, a fine balance between the bitter, the sweet and the bit of coffee which can be tasted as well. Maybe a bit too bitter in the very end, but almost perfect.

At a tasting, many thanks to DSG and Dror, pours opaque black with a nice brown head, aroma of chocolate, sour cherries, scotch, wood, vanilla and some smoke notes, flavor is smokey with charcoals, strong wood taste, coffee, caramel, cherries and brandy, nice bitterness towards the end, full bodied, great brew

Great presentation in the little bottles with red wax seals. The beer is a rich, dark black colour with a tan head. Quite hoppy on the nose with some sweetness and plenty of oak. The palate is a little oily with lots of bitter chocolate and coffee flavours. A cracking beer!

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.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Bottle at De Wildeman, Amsterdam. Another fantastic Molen beer, but did not find the oak aged version to be quite as good as the original. Re-rated, June 2012: Pours black with a thin beige head. Massive aroma of vanilla, oak, bourbon, dark chocolate, coffee, toffee, and roasted malts. More noticeable coffee in the flavour and unfortunately just a little alcohol, a small downside of is great beer. Moderate to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied with soft tingly carbonation. Fantastic! The one remaining bottle from my cellar and will probably never see again..

Bottle @ home. Aroma is deep roasty coffee, some toffee and caramel, bourbon, chocolate, bourbon and loads more, but I quit here. Must enjoy now.

10 June 2011, bottle. black, foamy brown head. absolutely gorgeous nose! sweet! like a whisky aged barley wine. alcohol is sweet and bites the nose. lots of vanilla. med body, syrupy and very fizzy. sweet tasting. almost a barley wine but i understand why they call it an imperial porter. sweet and bourbony but also slightly burnt chocolate and oatmeal. maybe a bit too fizzy but amazing!
