Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Kleine 180 Milliliter-Flasche mit der Seriennummer 1000! Jubel! Im Geruch malzig, fruchtig, eindeutig süß. Aromen von Orange, Holz und Likör. Antrunk süß, orangig, malzbetont. Danach malzschokoladig, rauchig und schon sehr alkoholisch unterwandert. Dabei weiterhin süß. Abgangs enorm dicht toffee-nougatartig und alkoholisch brennend. Ein Schwergewicht von einem Imperial Stout. Gewaltige Aromen. Leider, vor allem im Abgang, sehr spritig. Legt man die 12 Prozent Alkoholgehalt zu Grunde, verwundert das nicht und mag auch noch passend sein. Gut allemale, für mich schrammt das Bier aber an einer Spitzenwertung vorbei.Test vom 17.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

At Mrk’s. Maakun’s share! Super massive thanks once again (for sharing 2 new top 10 beers within 24 hours)! Wax head Molen bottle (vintage 2013) pours an opaque dark glass of dark brown/near black beer with a beautiful tan head. Sweet roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, licorice, enormous bourbon, dark fruit, cheesecake, vanilla, alcohol (in a good -dessert liquor- kind of way). Very sweet with well matching burnt bitter counterpart. Palate is nice and round but the body is a little thinner than I expected, texture is slick. Hardly any carbo, but a light fizz which is moussing the brew nicely. Great De Molen glory.

PotjeBier (2718) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2010
On tap @ Tilburgs BF (26 June 2010). Black, with hardly any head and little carbonation. Aroma is strong bourbon whiskey, wood, charcoal, roast, vanilla/creme brulee, hints of dried fruit. Flavor is sweet malty, dried fruit, a hint of sourness. Strong alcohol feel, but still medium bodied. Long finish with lots of wood, vanilla and some bitterness. Definitely the best beer of the festival and I’m glad I still have a bottle of this waiting for me.

dnstone (2651) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 26, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 Vanilla, wood, alcohol, roasty/chocolatey in both aroma and taste. Also burnt wood and vanilla and caramel aromas. Pours deep brown/black in color with a bit of brown head. Smooth and very complex, well-balanced with a nice moderate sweetness.

#966 Bottled on 6/8/10
From notes. Tasted in early December 2012 from a waxed and capped 7oz nip bottle, shared with Curtis. Pours nearly black with no real head, but some bubbly brown lace. The nose is roasted and dark with coffee, dark chocolate, and plenty of oaky vanilla. The flavor is very dry, with coffee, dark chocolate, and roast, with the vanilla, coconut, and maple bourbon rounding everything out. The body is full with light carbonation and a long dark chocolate and coconut, vanilla bourbon finish. This is a very good BA Stout.

Little 6oz bottle, stamped 222. Big thanks to Erik for the top 100 tick. Nose has some very dark European roast with a touch of booze. Taste is a lot if dark fruit, sweet cherries, some booze that to me comes off more fortified wine than bourbon. Palate was a bit thin and rather flat. Otherwise a very tasty little bottle.

pushkinwow (2569) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
Small bottle thanks to Countbeer. Black with a brown mist across the top of the beer. Light oak, vanilla and mellow bourbon, rich chocolate, light anise and red wine, toffee, and some molasses. Low carbonation, full body, alcohol is present but not too hot, sweet and viscous, quite rich, hint of bitterness at the end, great mouthfeel and long luxurious ending. The best of the HV series I’ve had so far.
