savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from DeMolen. Dark brown almost black with a small, creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Flavor is lots of bourbon, bitter sweet chocolate, roasted coffee and vanilla. Fullish body with soft carbonation. Another great Imp Stout from DeMolen, fresh and hot and the alcohol thins out the body.

Tried it again 2013-09-16. Noting to add on the aroma except I really like it. Not too heavy on the bourbon, but just right for my taste This is a really fine beer.

Multiple 2 oz pours at The Festival in Portland, Me. Aromas of oak, chocolate, dark fruits and coffee. Flavors were amazing, rich chocolate with raisin and plums soaked in whiskey. Very complex beer with a wonderful velvety smooth mouth feel. Wow!

Pours pitch black with a sticky brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet syrup, wood, oak, whisky and vanilla notes, hints of licorice and molasses. Taste is sweetish, heavy and complex with notes of roasted malts, wood, oak, whisky, vanilla, syrup and molasses. Finish is roasty, oaky and sweetish with notes of whisky and wood. Quite complex, nuanced and very well balanced BA imperial stout. Nice one.

Pours Dark Black into North Coast snifter and shared with Daknole. De Molens continues to impress with this stellar imperial stout. Pleasantly sweet and boozy. Hints of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, oh my. Love it!
