andrew_drinks (165) - Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from the brewery, shared at home. Note: bottle filled right to the brim! Jet black, thick, cream head, quite viscose. Aroma of caramelised sugar, treacle, dates, dark rum. Thinner in the mouth than expected, medium carbonation. Rich roast, burnt sugar, treacle, Starbucks espresso, charcoal. Some harsh woody astringency in the finish. Very rough around the edges.

yea another laser show. These guys really know how to make a big bourbon aged stout. Lots of danish malt flavors, good thick rich creamy body. Great head colors. Awesome stuff.

teorn88 (3266) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Backlog rating. 33cl bottle shared at Caspar tasting at Chrisos, London. Quite rich full bodied bold RIS, where barrel notes are still fresh and intense. COmes off as quite sweet, boozy, rough. Fully flavored for sure, will do better some time down the line.

TheCametron (1901) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle acquired in Katowice. Shared with the lads at Beergeek. Pours Black with a Tan head. Aroma of rich roasted malt and woody vanilla oak. Nice thick and warming texture with a heavy flavour of wood and chocolate. A bit of leather and liquorice. A very grown up stout. You can really count on De Molen for beers like this.

Przylus (164) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Aromat przez chwilę czekoladowy, kawowy. Pźniej głwnie coś nieokreślonego, nieprzyjemnego. Po ogrzaniu drewniana beczka. Barwa ciemnobrunatna, prawie czarne. Piana drobna, długa. W smaku mocne uderzenie kawy, pźniej cukierki Kopiko i bardzo długi finisz. Wyraźny podkład szlachetnego alkoholu, ktry wgniata w krzesło. Po ogrzaniu akcenty czerwonego wina. Goryczka średnia, kawowa w miarę przyjemna.

fiulijn (15378) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne; bottled Nov 19th 2013
Black color, with generous head. The aroma is nice, with a good mix of chocolate and leather, and a hint of vanilla. For the rest, its the classic excellent De Molen Imperial Stout, rich in chocolate, moderately sweet, with strong bitterness; but in my opinion the three different barrels are a bit excessive, and create some clash of flavors; less harmonious than its sisters.
