Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts strong, intense malty, fiery, strong coffee notes. A bit earty. Hints of bitter chocolate. Finish well balanced, warming. Great Imperial Stout!

gyllenbock (5068) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2010
Bottle bought at De Molen in November 2010. (bottle number was 209) Black with a small tan head. Very nice aroma and taste of wood, roasted malt and some whisky. Also dark chocolate and licorice. Thick body with a pleasant mouth feel. An excellent beer, how nice that I bought two bottles. Perfect beer to enjoy slowly.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94. Served in a sampler glass. Pours near black with a short head that recedes quickly. The nose brings some oak and a bit of whiskey along with some roast and chocolate. Touch of booze. Flavor has some barrel notes alongside roast and light chocolate. Fairly complex and pretty well integrated. Slight alcohol warmth. Medium body. Good, not great.

Bottle@Home. Another great example of an Imperial Stout by de Molen. This time with elegant notes of whisky and wood. Yummy.
