MarkoNm (1739) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 23, 2015
Pours a hazy orangey amber color, topped with a small foamy off-white head. Biscuity malt aroma, some molasses. Sweet and biscuity, caramel presence can be felt. Herbal finish, quite strong. Mild bitterness with some alcohol presence. Not totally something I like.

bottle that is old, but Iíll give it a whirl (10/30/2012). nose is nutty which means it aged well but the flavors will be off and since it is a dipa, the taste will be muted. So far I donít mind. boozy. a sipper. I get nothing but nuttiness.

Flavour is quite sweet, bisquit with medium dark citrus bitterness and caramely malt to back it up. Slightly sticky with good lasting bitterness. Very drinkable. Very nice.

Maakun (1638) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 9, 2015
Tap at Haarlems bierfestival. Slight hazy dark golden with very big cream colored head. Tropical fruits up front with mango, some grapefruit, very resinous, a but sugary. Sweet malts but not on the caramel side of things. Quite sweet with light to medium bitterness. Over medium bodied with soft carbonation.

The scent is fruity. The flavor is sweet, fruity, floral and well hopped. Really good bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth forever. Good beer. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

jerohen (2076) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2015
Bottled from Slijterij Michel, Bussum. No sound upon opening the bottle. Hazy orange colored, almost no head. Very hoppy nose, orange and lots of other fruit. Smooth hopbitter flavor, caramel malty sweetness, lots of fruit again. Lasting dry and bitter finish. The absence of carnonation is remarkable, was this intentional or did i have a bad bottle? Not the best Imperial IPA in my book.

Bottled 0.7 liter, BB 04/04/10. Hazy orange-brown coloured, lasting off-white head. Very nice complex fruity nose, hops, flowery, very nice. Fruity hopbitter flavour. Alcohol is well masked. Extremely well balanced. I usually donít like double IPAís at all, but this Molen brew is very very nice.
