Borefts Beer Festival IV. Day 1. Opaque black beer, massive tan head. Big TCP nose. Creamy soft palate. Fresh minerally dark malts. The TCP whisky is quite smooth and well integrated. Some lactose. Finishes dry with spicy TCP whisky linger. Not normally liking this much TCP but here it’s so fresh and smooth I’m seduced.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam, bottled 5 Sept 2012
Pitch black color, dense, with creamy brownish head. The aroma immediately shows greatness: peat character over creamy roasted malt; there is a fresh touch, almost like a softener. Round mouthfeel; good flavor of roasted malt and dark chocolate, quite rich as expected; moderate peat touch; it has just a bit too much liquorice; the alcohol is very well hidden, and the bitterness correctly high, balancing some residual sweetness.
Another excellent, smooth, peat Imperial Stout from De Molen.

tap at De Molen 2012 ...deep black ... thin tan head ... soft peaty (too much) roast nose ... soft chocolate ... rich malts ... big whisky ... soft roast ... too much whiskey for me

Bottle. Trade with Kermis. Thanks. Pours black with a small creamy head. Heavy peated nose with a touch of salty liquorice beaneath. Flavor is peat - ashtray and leather. Vinous and slick. Base beer is genius - this is defenetly not one for me.
