weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 12, 2011
As usual supplied by MesandSim at the epic 1000th beer tasting they hosted for me. And as usual, De Molen deliver big style. Black with a healthy tan head. Aroma is amazing, vanilla, wood, chocolate, deep deep pant wetting sweet aroma. Bourbon is clearly evident in the flavour. Very special.

tiong (4736) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 9, 2011
180ml bottle shared @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki

Bottled 08 June 2010 Pours pitch black with a minimal beige head. Very strong aroma of oaky vanilla with hints of alcohol, liqourice and coffee. Taste is strong and complex with notes of vanilla, oak, whisky, roasted malts and coffee. Long lasting sticky finish with a nice sweet touch. Excellent barrel aged imperial stout.

MJGG (952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
Bouteille de 18 cl. Arômes de bourbon, de chêne et de vanille. Robe brune foncée, très légèrement translucide, aucune mousse et effervescence presque nulle. En bouche, le bourbon et la vanille sont plutôt à l’avant-plan. La base maltée est relativement peu torréfiée pour une Imperial Stout, misant plutôt sur les fruits mûrs, le chocolat sucré et la réglisse. Très longue finale sucrée et alcoolisée. Une belle bière à siroter, qui aurait gagné à avoir une gazéification un peu plus active.

Benzai (10100) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2011
Color is very dark black, opague. Very strong alcohol smell. Taste: coffee, alcohol present but good. Oily texture, yet somehow smooth as well. Soft aftertaste and finish.

Bottle. Clear dark brown color with a small, frothy off-white head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, coffee, light alcohol, dried fruit notes. Flavour is sweet and bitter with a long duration, alcohol and moderate chocolate malt. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2011
Draft at Mikkeller Bar Copenhagen. Pours a black colored beer with a small brown head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. In the mouth again coffee, chocolate, licorice. A lot of alcohol coming through making it slichtly unbalanced.

VsXsV (2822) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2011
18 cl bottle from Systembolaget. From batch bottled 110214, bottle 93 out of 360. Black liquid with minimal brown head that dissipates in seconds. Some nice lacing. Smells of wood/oak, bourbon, licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and some caramel. Very elegant. Taste is medium sweet with medium to high bitterness (no less than 99.9 IBUs) with lots of wonderful, chocolatey and coffeish notes. The bourbon ageing is well noticed but absolutely not overpowering. Taste is also very elegant and balanced. Some alcoholic burn, but that’s expected. Full bodied with little carbonation and smooth, sticky mouthfeel. Overall, stunning imp stout with great balance and elegance.

lusikka (7104) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Rated @ 27.5.2011.
Pours a pitch black colour with a beautiful dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and oak. Flavour of roasted malts, oak, bourbon, hops and smooth caramel. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a dry, roasty, caramel-like finish where the bourbon barrel feels slightly stinging. Yet another tasty brew from De Molen.
