omhper (18972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2009
Bottled, (#608/1560). Extremely black, creamy small beige head. Strong port-like vinous nose. Oaky and full bodied. Plenty of licorice and chocolate, whiskey comes along later. Despite all these flavours it remains silk smooth and pleasant. Salty licorice, aniseed, grains and chocolate - lots of everything, yet there is harmony. One of the best whiskey barrel aged imperial stouts there is!

fiulijn (13532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
RBESG 2010, draught at Brasserie 4:20
Black color; small, creamy, brownish head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, paper, chemicals, alcohol. Caramel and some coffee flavor, quite sweet, but with too much alcohol presence, that spoils the body, and worsen in the final. Elements clash here. Confused.

Very dark brown cloudy beer. Decent tan head. Softish semi dry palate. Rich dark malt, a little fruit in the undertone. Tangy, minerals. Slightly salty malt finish, semi dry. Nice beer but lacks a little focus when judged by De Molens very high standard.
