thebeertourist (4648) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2012
Bottle from Euston Tap.Pours like black oil, but with a light brown head. Rich aroma of smoke, fruit and coffee. Smoke and hints of meatiness, but very moderate, caramel, noticeable alcohol. Complex and original, but age would probably soften some of the edges.

De Molen is back to old form with this brilliant stout. With all the bubbling you can see that beer is alive!. Smooth, full of flavor and a nice finish. Superb beer. Bottle from De Bierkoning.

Jacob23_5 (128) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle. Jet-black with minimal tan head. Aromas of rummy, raisiny sweetness, a whisky-ish edge, definitely, and fruity spiciness there, maybe figgy. Massive hit of boozy whiskiness on the flavour, but evolves into a lovely, chocolate-peanut-like aftertaste, and a touch of Christmas spice as well. Very sadly, there’s a slight metallic roughness on the finish. Very strong, full and powerful. Overall, very nice.

dantheman278 (1358) - SCOTLAND - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle at home. Deep brown/black pour, thin brown head fades to nothing. Intense, intense nose - massive dark chocolate, soft butterscotch/whisky, just a touch of vegetal funk too, booze, touch of peat perhaps? Surprisingly restrained up front, raisins, cocoa, peaty malts, then joined by a massive peaty whisky hit. VERY whisky. Maybe too much. Very dark chocolate in there too, salted caramel. Slightly thinner-bodied than expected. Earthy, boozy whisky on the finish. A bit rough around the edges, but nice enough.

BOLTZ7555 (2701) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Bottle generously shared by ibrew2or3 at nbutler11’s bachelor party. Dark mahogany/black pour with a cocoa powder head. Loads of chocolate, whisky, oak, vanilla, smoke, and peat in this one. Not as well incorporated as others from the brewery. Wanting something a bit richer and more decadent.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Nearly black color with a deep brown head. Aroma is loaded with roast, peat, chocolate and some wet barrel notes. Flavor is big and sweet, roasted malt, bitter chocolate, scotchy notes, peat, smoke. Fun brew to drink.

Draft @ CBC 2012. Pours a black color with a small tan head. Has a roasted malty chocolate peaty aroma with weak hints of licorice. Roasted malty peaty whisky and chocolate flavor. Has a roasted malty chocolate peaty whisky finish.

TheEpeeist (3175) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2012
33 cl bottle. Dark brown with a smooth tan head. Nose is coffee, scotch, wood and chocolate. Medium body with a sharp tang and punchy alcohol. Taste is scotch, peat, tobacco, tar, licorice and unsweetened chocolate. Monster, roasty bitter with prominent whiskey. A bit rough but i keep thinking about it.

LoFi (1517) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle. Black with a small brown head. Aroma: roasted, coffee, smoke, some sweat. Taste: chocolate, salty licorice, smoked meat, smoke, fruit, wood, semi-dry. I don’t get the whisky. Doesn’t feel very full-bodied. De Molen has brewed so many amazing imperial stouts, in comparison this feels a bit one-dimensional. Still a solid brew.
