Barwa czarna nieprzejrzysta. Aromat to bardzo przyjemne połączenie kawy, wanilii, gorzkiej czekolady oraz palonego słodu. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie głównie czekolada z wanilia. Wyczuwalna jest również whisky oraz palone słody. Mimo wysokiej zawartości alkoholu jest on praktycznie niewyczuwalny. Podsumowując jest to genialne piwo!

2013 Bottle courtesy of Alex. Huge Thanks!!! This is bliss. Pours motor oil thick and black into a glass with a slight residual head that does not last. Aroma is dark chocolate, dark roast, and has a strong alcohol note on the back end. Medium to medium heavy mouthfeel. Flavor is fantastic. Upfront booze, then some bittersweet chocolate, coffee notes, char, a little dense caramel coming through and finishes with a boozy chocolate pudding note that is amazing. I could drink this forever. HUGE thanks for this bottle. It blew me away.

wow! amazing beer courtesy of deflagro, thank you so much! pours very deep reddish brown with a minimal dark brown head from a very gentle pour, but this one has enough carb if you want to get a bit more head, no worries there. Something about the barrel quality of this beer is just tremendous, it give s thin bodies spirit impression at first, but them thickens up into a very nice body with an oily and refreshing aftertaste. very well balanced, nice and sweet, nice whiskey profile, just pure deliciousness! Top notch, i honestly like this better than the ’06 kaggen i had the other day.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Opaque black, small but lasting brown head. Malty nose, lots of vanilla, coffee, chocolate, not very strong but very complex. Tastes exactly like it smells, very complex, lots of vanilla, malts, quite low on hops and carbonation. Bourbon itself is not that apparant, it?s mainly the associated flavors such as vanilla. Absolute perfect velvety mouthfeel. This is supposed to be a sipper, but it?s so nice i just keep drinking it. Beforehand i would have never thought this beer could live up to its reputation, but it did. Phenomenal brew, one of the Molen?s absolute best.

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!

I had this beer compared with a 2 year aged regular version of the same beer. Its amazing how much the whiskey adds to the complexity of an already complex and near perfect stout. I prefer the regular, but this is close.

Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is very intense, roasted malt, chocolate, light alcohol, whiskey, oak and vanilla. Flavour is complex, sweet roasted malt, alcohol, wood, whiskey, chocolate, coffee and liquorish. Really really nice.

Bottle from Lassem. Thanks so much! Deep black pour. Chocolate aroma hits hard followed by whiskey, oak, molasses, and roasted malt. Flavor reminds me of those little chocolates filled with tiny amounts of whiskey in them. This is remarkably delicious. Great all around!
