’09 750ml. Still in the glass. Quite nice aroma of medium chocolate, oak barrel influence (cannot identify the type of booze in the barrel), liquored plum/raisin, and a smidge of underlying malt roastiness. Watery feel in the mouth; weak body. Taste follows mainly the aroma with the plum/raisin notes asserting a bit more. Quite a let down overall as the beer is flabby, loose, and imprecise.

On tap at Congregation Ale House, Long Beach Chapter. Black pour with a dense brown head. Nose is espresso, wood smoke, and alcohol. Taste is Belgian yeast, roasty malt, coffee, baker’s chocolate and an alcohol finish. Palate is full, finoshing dry, with a wonderful coffee aftertaste.

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - DEC 1, 2010
11/28/10 notes: On tap, CAH. This is one huge RIS. Aroma has heavy spicy grain, black coffee, tar-ash, licorice. Body is syrupy thick, with LONG sticky finish. Flavor has coffee and char upfront, deepened with boozy sweetness, brandied dark fruit, searingly rich dark chocolate. Really demands warming to cellar temp to pick out all the flavors, something I didn’t quite do. A decadent, rich, dessert-and-nightcap beer, and a real treat to try.

Bottle 33cl number 173, from Allen thanks a lot. A very dark beer with low head. Smell is hopy, syrupy, and on dark chocolate. A very oily and dense beer, intense dark malt and dark chocolate body light smoked notes, coffee, heavy alcohol mouse-feel, intense hops presence quite resinous with reveals its grassy part once mouse is empty. This beer is a mix between a strong imperial stout and a strong black IPA. Dark fruit presence, prune, grapes, dark chocolate syrup and of course very bitter with 99 EBU !! Intense in all directions but does it mean a great beer with such an heavy astringency ?

Draught, EBF, Copenhagen. Fruity, very Beligan aroma. Lots of sugar, way too sweet for an Imp Stout, way too sweet for my liking.

Sampled at BPS tasting
Ok, De Molen rocks. How can something so intense be so smooth? One hell of an amazing stout. Roasted, slightly burnt malts with flavors of sweet dark fruits light peat. Complex with an excellent balance of sweetness. Too good, too easy to drink.

Draft. Pours black with a tan head. Flavors of dark fruits, dark chocolate, coffee, and booze. A bit boozy but still very good.
