3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
10% ABV. Imperial Stout.
No head. Poured out of the bottle like liquid sin. 40ºSRM.
Nose is burnt sugar, stewed fruit, caramel.
Mouthfeel is surprisingly light. Carbonation is pronounced, but you will barely notice it because of the syrupy body of the brew. There is no malt sweetness, but there is that carbohydrate heft to it. A very good body on which to appreciate flavors of tobacco, dark toast and coffee.
Good bitter finish reminiscent of the time when I tried a small piece of bamboo charcoal. No cloying sweetness at all. Goo job, De Molen, I don’t like everything you do, but I do like this.
Goes on favorites list.

Aroma of coffee and some cocoa. Pours pitch black with tan head. Taste is dominated by coffee, bit sour and ashy, body is surprisingly low making this one very drinkable. You can finish the bottle in 10 minutes. Overall easy drinking Imperial Stout.

Bottle, 2013 vintage at Burspraks Blind Imperial Stout Tasting! Pours a flat black, almost no head, and a transparent hue. Aroma has slight smoke, cigar, licorice, roasted malts, tobacco, oldschool european style imperial stout. Some salmiak. Taste is very bitter. Slight smoke, some hops, pretty metallic. Some saltyness. Low carbonation and a full body. Surprised that this wasn’t better!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Received in a trade from Dresden many moons ago. Bottle poured into a snifter -- A black\brown oily pour. Aroma is sweet booze. Flavor of a super smooth sweet slick and savory. This beer drinks way easier than a 10%. Very well done.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle at home. Bottled 11/2013. black color, very small coffee-colored head. strong smell of wood, malty roast, poletus, spices, coffee roast. full body, light carbonation, oily mouthfeel. tastes of wood, peat, acidic, some malty roast, alcohol, ash. finishes with peat and wood notes. Expected more, feels rather ... one-dimensional. Has a nice mouthfeel, but I dont like the taste. It is basically only wood, peat and some ash ... not much else. Definitly not my favorite De Molen Imp Stout.

Bottle @ Dangerous Bottle Share (pure imperial stout version). Blackish with some pale lacings. Nose has light peat, licorice tar and light roast. Taste has peat, smoke, sheep, tar, coffee, cigarettes, chocolate and some roasty notes. Maybe a bad bottle?
