4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Appearance: no foam. This is the first beer Iíve come across that has absolutely none. No lacing, hardly any carbonation. Colour and opacity are as one would expect to seen in an imperial stout. Itís dark, very dark. Tipping the glass shows lots of sugar in the beer.
Aroma opens with dark dried fruit, prunes and currants, with something vaguely citrusy lingering (candied peel ?) in the back.
Mouthfeel: first sip is like drinking port. This brew is incredibly syrupy.
The flavour is very well-balanced, slightly malty with overwhelming dark fruit, prunes, cherries and currants. There is a recurring touch of fruit, and friendly bitterness - like orange marmelade on slightly blackened toast in the aftertaste.
Drinkability: go easy on this one. Itís heavy in flavour and mouthfeel, but also heavy on the alcohol. Drink slowly and enjoy (Iím sure you will!)
Overall impression: great beer - an impressive imperial stout, if perhaps slightly low in foam. Otherwise, itís superb.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2016 Very dark intense colour. Not much foam. Beautiful dark smell with a lot of cacao, some caramel, some roast. Nice subtle carbonisation. Sweetness is far from overdone and only subtle. A lot of dark cacao. Caramel, coffee, some raisins, a little rye. Excellent balance. Fantastic stuff.

Pours thick and black with a thin tan head. Smells of dark malts and dried fruits. Tastes slightly of coffee, followed by rich dried fruits and chocolately malts. Overall a very well made stout, fairly balanced and has great mouth feel. Another great beer from De Molen.

Awesome beer. Takes all the best elements of an imperial stout and a belgian strong beer, and jams them together. Iíll definitely be trying more from this brewery!
