Nightfall black. Brownies and booze. Sweet and syrup like in texture. I like these enormous beers.

Bottle no. 1628(18cl) bought in de Molen beershop . What can I say… the best beer I ever tasted. My First experience with H&V Misto BA was in The Molen restaurant. A combination of an awesome chocolat desert together with this intense and overhelming H&V Misto BA on tap. The bottle pours out black with a touch of amber, little bubbles illustrate the head. The aroma is magnificent : Leather, smoke, old oak wood, black chocolate, some pepper, tiny alcohol and coffee. The flavor is not easy to describe: Creamy and thick with very dark chocolate, ‘zoute drop’ = salt liquorice, wood and bourbon, peppery and a tickle on your tongue( very soft carbonation) . A beautiful dry finish that lingers for at least 20 minutes… Outstanding-World class

Had it a few times now, this is some of the best beer made, ever. Black with no head, rich awsome aroma. Coffee, cocoa, vinouse, wood and toffee, full bodied powerfull Complex sweet flavor, balances by complexity and alchohol. Highly enjoyable even in Very small dosis.

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.

Pony bottle number 40. Thanks Allen for this seriously rare dutch brew. This beer consists of Hell and Damnation aged in three barrels and blended. The barrels were wild turkey bourbon, austin nichols, and new charred bourbon barrels. Pour is a sinful, deep black shade. Insanely sticky brown lacing and head that retains until you finish the glass. Loads of miniscule bubbles present in the foam. Aromas of rich chocolate mousse, brown sugar, vanilla, regular and smokey bourbon notes, leather. Taste is creamy chocolate cake, licorice, bourbon, charred wood, raisins, dark plum. This beer was so full in flavor with a warming quality in the body. A truly amazing beer, and one of my favorite imperial stouts that I have tried to this date.

Black pour, very small brownish head. Aroma starts with big bold bakers chocolate, booze, asphalt and some light coffee. Flavor is smooth and delicious. Booze, chocolate, oak, molasses, prunes, raisins, and very light ashy/coffee notes. Great beer. Really awesome.

At the end of the first (18cl) bottle, I was seized by a yearning for more, and cast around for something similar and found a bottle of Black Damnation. But the Black Damnation tasted watery in comparison. Today is a different day, and needing some comparisons,opened a Narke Stormakts 2006. The Molen beer is just so much fuller in flavour, and has the texture of the best port wine you could ever find. The barrel ageing of the already epic H&V has added the fourth dimension to beer and I don’t ever expect to rate a beer as highly as this again. I really do feel awestruck and overwhelmed.
