(Bouteille numéro 063, partagée avec rodenbach99. Merci pour cette fabuleuse dégustation!) Le liquide dévoile une robe brune, très foncée, à la limite d’être noire, avec des reflets rouges, observables aux contours du verre. Le nez est complexe, d’une riche sensualité, se construisant autour de trois grands axes : d’abord les grains maltés torréfiés qui transpirent le chocolat, la réglisse et le café. Ensuite, viennent les effluves modérées à fortes d’un alcool très parfumé, en habile fusion avec une présence notables des houblons. Et, pour conclure, l’émergence d’esters fruités, et ce, comme une apparition des petits fruits foncés, macérés, goûteux en sucre doux et en liqueur d’alcool. Le goût est une continuité exemplaire des parfums, avec des saveurs incroyables de céréales torréfiés de niveaux et de complexités différents (pensons ici entre autre à la réglisse), de petits fruits comme les cassis avec toute la saveur d’un café fort aux accents de cacao. En bouche, le liquide qui devient pratiquement solide est bercé par une effervescence tranquille et prend une incroyable expansion avec sa texture capiteuse, lourde et riche. Wow! La finale est un habile mélange de notes amères de houblons avec des notes torréfiées et une présence d’alcool parfumé juste et à sa place. En résumé, bière des ligues majeures!

50belair (3265) - Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2010
33cl bottle from 04/10. Oh how I love the De Molen beers. Dark brown pour with a decent tan head. Big roasted malt and coffee aromas. This chewy little devil is fantastic; with roasted malt, mellow coffee, and chocolate flavors. As good as it is, I do however prefer the 666 version..

ClubGonzo (5303) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2010
Bottle, purchased at the brewery/bottle shop (Struise) in Oostvleteren, Belgium. Pours a deep murky brown (!) body with no head. Nose is dark chocolate, licorice and wooden notes. Taste is maple syrup, chocolate and hints of tar and charcoal. The absolutely best thing about this stout is the fantastic palate; a silky smooth velvet caption that really makes my day! It is so rare to have a beer that makes you wanna crank that palate-scale up a couple of notches - just great. Otherwise, this is a solid stout without too many original characteristics, but all in all Hel & Verdoemnis makes me wanna go out and sin some - at least if this is what I’ll be drinking in hell! :-D

12many (277) - Alaska, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Bottle. Black pour, small brown head with strong lacing. Huge sweet chocolate, mellow coffee, and alcohol undertone. I got quite a bit of whiskey/bourbon flavor out of this as well which was awesome. (It’s not the Turkey Barrel either) This is extremely drinkable while still holding on to a lot of flavor. A new favorite.

arturorg (52) - SPAIN - SEP 21, 2010
Served into an oversize wine glass Bottled 18/6/2010 number 691 A: Jet black no light goes through, creamy brown head, big lace. S: Sweet brown sugar, bitter roasted coffee, dark malts, smokiness. T: Strong bitter coffee flavor, warming astringent, sweet notes. Full bodied beer. Overall a delicious beer if you like RIS or coffee if not it’s very strong for some people. This brewery it’s all about the beer just a clean and simple tag with a lot of info like type of hops used and bitterness measurements. Fully recomended

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2010
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Pitch black pour with a thin layer of tan foam. Absolutely no carbonation whatsoever. Big coffee and roasted malt aroma with a nice creamy hint as well. Roasted malt and coffee at the start with a very thick and roasted malt middle. Some sweetness at the end with a dark fruit finish. Lingering bitter aftertaste. A bit thin, but I think that was due to the lack of carbonation.

lusikka (7649) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 5, 2010
(750 ml bottle. Rated @ 5.7.2009.)
Pours a pitch black colour with a small brown head. Burned malts, fruits, wood, dark chocolate and coffee on the nose. Flavor is moderate sweet with an intense body and lots of licorice and roastiness. Great IS and the Eiken version is even better.
