0,75 l bottle, shared with friends.
At opening the beer fizz out as a fontana...So pours deep brown with a fine creamy pillowy brown stable head. Aroma of espresso, dark chocolate and cappuccino, roasted barley, candy sugar. Medium bodied one with a fine creamy consistance, very well hidden alcohol. Coffee, molasses and chocolate, huge ammount of roasted grains. Fine!

Wow. This was a big gusher. A lot of foam when opening the bottle. The foam kept comming till I emptied the bottle. Bottled June 2011. And wow. What a bear. Pitch black pour with of course a lot of beige foam. Roasted malts, chocolate and wood in the aroma. A lot of chocolate, wood, roasted hints, coffee, liquorice and some salty hints in the taste. Lingering aftertaste with the liquorice and chocolate again. This is crafted beer. How I love you De Molen! Thank you Menno!

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 1, 2012
16/12/2011 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Bruna, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma rada e poco persistente. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, con note di cioccolata, caramello e frutta matura (non sono certo che abbiano usato lieviti belgi). In bocca è dolce con note di cioccolato, caramello e una punta di caffè. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Non è il genere di imperial stout che preferisco e in generale non è che mi abbia detto granché.

yngwie (13529) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A gusher, producing a big, foamy head over a dark reddish brown body. The flavor is on the roasted, bonfire-like side, with some chocolate and coffee in the back. Not much besides the darker aromas to be found. The same goes for the flavor, it’s quite sweet, with licorice, coffee, chocolate, some alcohol notes and a little bitterness. Full-body, slightly too effervescent. The finish has a pleasant hoppy bitterness. Overall, this is certainly a quite wonderful beer, pity it was gushing. 111229

TheCametron (1780) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Literally erupted as if it were a prop in a comedy sketch. Soaked the remote control and violated the integrity of an innocent magazine. Managed to fill the glass but foam kept pushing it’s way out of the neck hole. After the exitement, the remaining liquid poured a deep reddish brown with a (previously discussed) lively tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavour was leathery with more coffee and chocolate. Some burnt bitterness and some pretty well disguised alchohol. Nice degree of hoppyness and bitterness to finish. I can’t really forgive the over-carbonation though. Maybe on a better day this would have been in the region of a 4.

Molt de cacau en nas i molt axocolatada en boca. Final sec i contundent. Magnífica.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2012
2012-07-06. Very dark brown black body, nice tan head fades. 3+ Modest aroma of dusty toasty malt, very light roast. 7+ Sweetish dark malt flavour, light roast and toasty malt notes, very light tangy touches in the finish, and a mild roast that lingers. Roast provides just enough bitterness to balance it. 7+ Smooth average plus bodied palate. Very nice. Bottled 9/2008, bottle shared by Blankboy
