Van de tap bij Brouwerij De Molen. Meer uitgesproken van smaak dan de Rasputin, geur van caramel en gebrande mout, smaak van caramel, gebrande mout en koffie. Maar nog steeds heerlijk zacht van smaak, zoutig, licht bitter... Jammie!

mergels (15) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 7, 2015
On tap @ Erzbierschof Zurich, also bought a bottle afterwards. Aroma of roasted malts and bittersweet chocolate, also some dark fruits and coffee/espresso - very interesting! Appearance black with light beige head. Taste great as expected, very sweet on first notice, turns bitter right away, very smokey. Quite a party. Bitter finish as well, average carbonation (considering it’s an imperial stout). Really nice.

Aroma of roasted malt, cocoa, lots of sweet chocolate, espresso coffee notes, some dark fruity notes, hint of liquorice. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet with a nice moderate bitter finish. Easily drinkable and delicious chocolate Imperial Stout.

Bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks Chen! Deep opaque brown with small brownish head. Sweet aroma with lots of vanilla, notes of soy sauce, coconut, licorice, coffee and some herbs. Very sweet and complex flavor with notes of vanilla, coconut, licorice, dried fruits and some coffee, light sourness, semi-dry finish. Soft carbonation, oily texture, full-bodied. Excellent.

roald76 (26) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2015 Batch 22-01-2015. Zeer donker, bitter, koffie en chocoladetonen. Weinig tot geen schuimkraag. Eigenlijk nog te jong om te drinken. Zeer bijzonder bier met een t.h.t. van 25 jaar.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2015 Nieuwe batch Hel & Verdoemenis, gebotteld 22-01-2015. Uitgeschonken in een De Struise bierglas. Gitzwart, olieachtig ondoorzichtig bier, met hoge karamel kleurige schuimkraag, die na verloop van tijd inzakt naar een dunnere schuimlaag, en later vrijwel geheel verdwijnt. Rijke en aangename aroma's van geroosterde mout, koffie en chocolade. Deze Nederlandse Imperial Stout heeft een zeer complex smaakpallet. Smaken van espresso koffie, pure chocolade, (laurier)drop, bittere hoptoetsen, vanille, eikenhout, en iets van Bourbon of cognac. Verder heeft dit bier wat rokerige tonen van teer, as en tabak, werkelijk complex! Prachtige balans tussen bitter en zoet en ziltig. De alcohol van 10% is wel aanwezig, en het geeft een verwarmende smaak in de afdronk. De nasmaak is lang, wederom koffie, zacht bitter met een vanille toets. Hel & Verdoemenis is een zeer goede Imperial Stout, en zeker een van de beste Nederlandse bieren. Een van de topbieren en klassiekers van Brouwerij De Molen.
