Draft at Brasserie 4:20 in Rome. Wonderful colour, jet black with big beige creamy head which retains it’s lace until the end. Fabulous aroma of vanilla, coffee and marinated dark fruits. The mouthfeel is thick, coating the mouth. The flavour is massive alcohol but beautifully restrained by the mass of flavours ranging from tobacco to more vanilla. The wonderful host at Brasserie 4:20, Alex, gave me a bottle to take home which i am drinking now - pretty much the same as the draft, just superb. By far and away the best European imperial stout.

33cl in teku. Aroma: lots of dark chocolate, grain coffee, a bit of roastiness and alcohol. Colour: black with brown/deep red reflections. Minimal head disappeared after a minute. Full body with wonderful, bitter finish. Overally a very good RIS.

ABT_S54 (177) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours a dark brown/red colour with no head or carbonation. Looks oily and black when in the glass but held up to light you can see that the edges are red and you can see the sediment floating around. Aroma is powerful burnt malt and dark chocolate. Taste is very similar but with a nice glow of alcohol. Mouthfeel is surprisingly generous given the fact that it is not as black as most Imperial Stouts I have tried thus far. Overall the beer is very well balanced and gets quite sweet as it warms up. Definitely a sipper.

Arve_Christian (3225) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2014
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika, a while back. Bottle date 29.02.2012. Pitch black color, some offwhite brownish foam. High aroma intensity; roasted aromas, licorice, leather, malt, coffee, dried fruits and some toffee in the finish. Full body & high complexity. Some immediate sweetness, followed by high bitterness- balances well. Very enjoyable

dado93 (144) - ITALY - OCT 31, 2014
Black color with rubin red reflex, no head and no carbonation, strong and not excellent aroma, hard approch in mouth, coffee, bitter chocolate and smoke... excessive i.s. for my taste, but de molen produced a lot of great stout (Rasputin, Sodom & Gomorra...)
