Grovlam (4164) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown thick foamy head that mostly lasted. Thick lacework in the glass. Pitch black color. Aroma was sweet dried fruit, roasted malty and some whiskey feel. Over the palate came roasted and liquorish with again some whiskey. Almost light smoked and a hint of dark chocolate. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and thick texture. Heavy sweet flavor with good counter bitterness. Lingering roasted and sweet malty finish. Excellent and quite drinkable for an Imperial Stout.

Vaiz (3821) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle at home. Pitch black pour, thin dark brown head. Aroma of burnt malts, chocolate, peat, tobacco, alcohol, spices and oat. Flavor is quite bitter and very roasted. Well balanced. So dark, it gives a sense of impending doom. Nice brew.

anders8000 (390) - aarhus.c., DENMARK - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a pitch black with a tiny brownish head. Roasty nose combined with quite some whisky heat. Medium body only, surprisingly carbonated. Quite some chocolate, bitter roast while the alcohol is surprisingly well hidden

Ibrew2or3 (7461) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 10, 2012
33cl bottle pours mahogany with mocha like head of foam. The aroma offers up molasses, dark roasted malts, some spicy wood like notes and then vague soft barrel notes. The taste begins with roasted malts, dark roasted malts and some chocolate. It then moves into almost peaty like booze and spicy wood. Overall the mouthfeel is on the thin side and the taste lingers with mild spicy wood notes and fading roasted maltiness.

kraddel (4561) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2012
enjoyed this as a treat in a 33 cl bottle at de kelk ( bruges) . wich i’m very thanfull for ! this one and hel en verdoemenis made me a real fan of de molen ! this is a stout ( so i knew already i was gonna like it) but less sweet than de hel en verdoemenis. but WAAW ! so concentrated, withoud going over the top ! they’ve menaged to create a thickness, a complexity, a heaviness and so on, that is just right there at the line , but not crossing it. theyve pusched it to the maximum withoud going in the red zone ! if these were cheaper and unlimited ( wich i think they are) id have one weekley !
