3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille de 18 cl. Arômes très intenses de chocolat au lait, de fruits rouges, de chêne. Robe brune foncée et trouble, effervescence assez faible et légère dentelle. En bouche, la bière est moins corpulente que le nez pouvait le laisser croire. Les malts chocolatés et torréfiés sont accompagnés par une forte présence de tannins vineux. La bière est sucrée, mais les tannins de chêne réussissent à bien l’équilibrer. Très longue finale présentant un (trop) fort réchauffant d’alcool. Le séjour en fût de vin est manifeste et donne un côté très original à cette imperial stout.

On tap. Licorice both on tasting and smelling, light carbonation and black colour. Not my favourite but it has a great aroma. Great beer.

Bottle enjoyed at home. Clear dark brown pour with no head. Aroma Has coffee, sweet chocolate and a little red wine. Flavour has the expected coffee and chocolate but with a little wine fruitiness. Soft oily mouthfeel and some alcohol in the finish. Another great BA Molen, though not the best.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought at De Molen - dark brown nip bottle, little carbonation. Lots of coffee on the nose, some dark fruits. Rich chocolate flavors, oily and alcoholic. Not as much wine in the body as I would have thought. Has a sugary sweetness with a dry finish and a roasted coffee aftertaste. Like this effort, but not as good as the Wild Turkey or Misto varieties.

Bottle thanks to bierkoning. Poured near black with a red tint and small beige head. Aroma was fudge, sherry, dark fruit, and cherry. Flavor was pretty much the same with a medium body and low carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Color is opaque black with no head. Smell is coffee, roasty, a little burned and quite alcoholic. Taste is light coffee, light liquorice, a little wine-ish. Low carbonation. Alcohol well hidden in the taste and palate, though you feel it in the back of your throat. Firm body. Nice long lingering aftertaste which is lightly bitter, lightly coffee. Drink slow and enjoy!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to Kan for hauling this back for me! Poured black with no head whatsoever. Aroma is full of roasted malts with dark grains and chocolate and just a hint of red wine. Flavor starts with a bit of red wine but quickly becomes full of roasted malts with some dark grains and a bit of chocolate. A bit thin on the tongue, but at the same time didn’t show any booze.
