33 cl bottle. Never saw a bottle gushing like this one before. Didnít expect a gushing bottle from a Molen beer. Opend with a big bang and kept gushing till I emptied the bottle. The experience started disappointing but soon became heavenly (or should I say Hellish!). Pitch black beer with a huge tan head. Great aroma with hints of chocolate, coffee and raisins. Great taste with a lot of chocolate. Some coffee follows. Full mouthfeel which last forever. Good aftertaste where some light hop hints kick in. Will try this one again very soon. Hopefully a non-gushy bottle. Thank you Menno!

(33cl bottle #115/1056 brewed 4-14-09 bottled 5-21-09 thanks to ericandersnavy) Pours a dark brown/Black with tan head. Aroma of dark roast, melon, alcohol and spive. Flavor of burnt grain, espresso, alcohol and spice with some dark fruit and a bit astringent. Mouth feel is very heavy body, creamy, with low carbonation....Good stuff!

beernbourbon (1452) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Bottle 028; about two years old. Pour is a rich black with a thick and large brown head that lingers for quite some time. When it finally settles, a 1 cm layer of thick brown foam remains. Aroma is decadent: lots of rich caramel malt, roasted malt, brown sugar, light coffee, light chocolate, faint brandy, and a faint nuttiness. This is really a top notch aroma. I gave it about 10 minutes or more to breathe first. The palate is quite a bit more effervescent than expected. Flavor is loaded with rich roasted and caramel malts. Also notes of brown sugar, chocolate, and light alcohol. The finish is dominated by roasted malt and light coffee. It has plenty of body, but is incredibly drinkable. For some reason, I did not think this beer was going to be that good and I kind of opened it up on a whim. I could not have been more wrong. This is absolutely exceptional stuff. Wow.

Mjollnir (394) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2010
330mL bottle. Pours opaque black-red with a persistent light brown head. Roast, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and alcohol with some piney hops in the aroma. The roast is strong with a slight hop bitterness hidden behind it, and a mild amount of sweetness. Full bodied, lively carbonation and silky smooth with a roasty finish.

Bad a@#. Big nose of dark fruit, whiskey and chocolate. In the mouth itís liquid black gold.Dark chocolate, alcohol,whiskey, bourbon and a well rounded body. I prefer the true complexity of the rasputin, but this is still top tier dark malted liquid damnation in itís purest form. Now if you donít mind I have a date with the devil...

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 7, 2010
Appearance: Enormous, explosive, thick, oily, opaque tar-black tinted exterior with a huge tan head.
Aroma: Slightly smoked roasted malts, hints of coffe and chocolate with a strange petrol or pigment-like hop oily or alcoholic bouquet.
Flavor: Sweet port and liquorice melt into a smooth oily earthy, hop-oily, tar and black-coffe enriched enviroment and leaves a resinous hoppy aftertaste.
Mouthfeel/Palate: Rich and mellow roasted malty mouthfeel with a relatively medium body and a thick oily texture. A distinct floral hoppy bite at the finish.
Overall: Thick, syrupy, bitter stout. Iíd rather pair with cigar than dessert.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle. Thick black body with a creamy dark tan head that quickly shrinks to surface cover. Nose is quite roasty, almost ashy, and has salty licorice and dark chocolate notes as well as a hint of berries. The flavour is also quite roasty and smokey, almost like a bigger version of the aroma but with added coffee and vanilla. Mouthfeel is thick and oily with moderate carbonation and a long roasty finish. Overall this is an excellent Imperial Stout; big and bold yet smooth and seductive. This is probably the best stout Iíve tried from De Molen and thatís saying something.

Pours a pitch black color with a medium light brown head. The aroma is sweet and thereís chocolate, roasted malt and ashes. Good flavor of roasted malt, chocolate and ashes. The body is light to medium with a liquorous texture and lively carbonation. Itís not a great imperial stout, but itís still pleasant and entertaining.
