COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with brown malts, an English traditional specialty malt, we created an Imperial Russian Stout that has won prizes at festivals across Europe from Sweden to Italy. It’s big, black, roasted and complex. We are convinced that not trying this ale will be a mortal sin to your taste buds and beer experience. Oak chips have been put in 40 year old cognac and then added to the beer.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 24, 2010
My Bottom Line:
This Imperial Stout’s striking malt personality develops chocolate chips, pumpernickel bread, hazelnuts, caramel and raisins which are all kept in check by coniferous hops. This is another very characterful and complex product from De Molen.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A circle of foam floats atop the brownish blackness.
-Carbonation is relatively soft, letting us perceive a plethora of flavors while never being bothered by heavy dextrins.
-Roastiness is generous throughout.
-The cognac notes are subtle, which is appreciated.

omhper (23313) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2010
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Near black, abdolutely no head. Rich chocolatey nose. Sweet and dense, very chocolatey with full body. Prickly with white pepper, lots of milk chocolate, almost no carbonation. Feels viscous, almost thick. Sweetness comes through in the finish.

BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - JAN 6, 2010
75cl, no mention of ABV, new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2009, from The Cracked Kettle Amsterdam, complex Stout, balanced, hazy, nearly no head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

KimJohansen (10416) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2010
Black with a tinybeige head. Sweet aroma with dark chocolate, burned malt and espresso. Flavour was huge with burned malt, dark chocolate, wood, espresso and cognac. Full bodied. A master piece! Once again a brilliant beer from Menno.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2010
Bottle 717. Deep black-brown pour. The nose is very salty with a kiss of light chewy malt. Soy and a bit of intense rich roasty character. As it warms a lot of dark malt character comes to the fore as does the barrel contribution. A bit of light sweet chewy maltiness. Fairly peppery with a kisslot of ethanol character as well. A touch of roasted sweetness and a bit of chocolate. Fairly sweet and quite oaky.

zdk (1860) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle shared by Maxxdaddy: Arouma of prunes, some choclate and other dark fruits and woodiness. Very bitter taste and a little sour. Thin body. Finishes warm with the alcohol. A strange brew.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2009
Black colored brew. Vinous aroma, oak. Very low carbonation, maybe non. Flavor is laural, creamy, buttery, oak, vinous, malty, nice intense bitterness. Very silky, nice to sip.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Bottle shared by Max. Kind of minty, chocolatey, boozy/vodka aroma. I just swung this up to my face and I think some of the alcohol vapors irritated my eyes. Thin palate, pretty much no carbonation unfortunately, with a coconut, peanut, lightly roasty malt flavor. The flavor is a bit of a letdown.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - DEC 9, 2009
Its dark brown with a very small and brief head. Aroma was very roasted with notes of bourbon and wood. Flavor was a pretty big disappointment. First off the palate was watery, would never have guessed the relativly hight abv. Besides that it had some sweetness, but overall it felt quite week compared to my expectations. Think its the first time i’ve been let down by this brewery though
