Thanks DuffMan for this one. Dark body some brown head, doesn’t last long, but attractive. Aroma of cocoa, coffee, vanilla, smoke, wood, booze, sweet malt and yeast. Taste is sweet, a touch of cola, nice cognac, a touch of anise. Like a smooth cognac with a cocoa beer mixed in. Quite nice.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle from MrH. Aroma and flavor are a perfectly balanced bouquet of cognac, peat, milk chocolate, cocoa nibs, and toasted sugars. Great mouthfeel on this one. Loved it. Want more. Great beer.

Nothing like the standard hel & verdoemenis. It has a strong alcohol, cognac, sweet, milk chocolate, light peated smell. It has more body and more flavour. The taste is milk chocolate, alcohol, sweet, coffee and mocha. It had one of the best aftertaste for any BA i gave tasted. It is just a desert; mocha, chocolate, alcohol and sweet. The best of the molen!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bytemesis (4136) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle thanks to MrH! Pours opaque black with a small creamy brown head that dissipates slowly and laces well. Subdued roasty cognac aroma, chocolate, some coffee as well. Flavor is quite nice, cognac present but not overpowering the stout characteristics. Light sweet, light bitter with some bitterness lingering to the finish. No real astringency per se. Lots of roasted malts, a bit of ashtray. Perhaps a bit hot for 10%, but not too bad. Body a little lighter than I expected, but otherwise a full out winner.

DuffMan (7561) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle. Hearty near black pour with a dense brown head. Rich roast, chocolate liqueur, oaky vanilla, sweet cognac without any booziness, all in good balance. Heavy mouthfeel, sweet without being cloying. I thought this was going to be hot and boozy, but I’m happy to be wrong. This was fantastic!

330ml bottle from De Molen Beershop
Bottle #1637, bottled DEC 5 2012 - Pours pitch black with a sticky and bubbly light brown head. Aroma of lovely oaky wood, roasty malts, stingy alcohol, hints of cognac, vanilla, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is smooth and soft but complex with some roastiness, wood, oak, cognac, dark chocolate and oily coffee. Finish is warming, slick and smooth with some roastiness, oaky cognac notes, smoked wood and sweet vanilla. Elegant, heavy but still pretty soft and yet quite complex barrel aged imperial stout. An enjoyable slow sipper. 9-4-8-4-17 = 4.2

Re-rated on 23.8.2014. Bottle #1689. Vertical with 666-ish. Feels heavier than 666-ish and the cognac notes are much heavier than the whisky notes in 666-ish. This is slightly better.
