4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black with a thick tan head that settles into a rocky foam. Aroma changes as the head settles. It starts out as molasses and coffee. As the foam settles, petrol notes come out, and finally it becomes earthy with notes of pine and toffee. Flavor is moderately bitter and rich. The viscosity is thin for an imperial stout, but it is silky smooth. Very good overall.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2014
April 2013 - Bottle, 18 months old. Has a sickly yeasty barley smell like my homebrew. Big body. Some coffee,very very smokey. A little one dimensional, but alright. (3.8)
Sep 2014 - Bottle, 3 years old. Black with a big dense foamy tan head that endures. Aroma is fabric plaster, similar yeasty homebrew aroma to last time. Body is medium, low carbonation, a little foamy. Taste is peated, fabric plaster, agree with the lapsang tea description, finishes with an enduring breathy smokiness. One dimensional, and doesn’t seem to have improved with the extra age. I was probably slightly kind with my last rating. (3.7)

Very interesting, incredibly well made, and for Stouts,which usually aren;t my thing as I often get very metallic notes, I liked this quite a lot.

Buena imperial stout, en está ocasión nos encontramos ante una de las cervezas con un gusto a café más marcado que he probado, alternándolo con unos tonos dulces. Cambia de sabor al final produciendo una agradable sensación. Al principio puede llegar a tener un extraño sabor, pero luego se deja querer en boca. No es de mis imperial stouts preferidas, pero repetiría.

Bottle split 3-way with my brother and brother-in-law on Easter dinner. Pours more brown than black with a foamy white head. Aromas of smoke, malt and general roastiness. Flavors are mostly of smoke and peated malt with a low-medium sweetness. Overall a really nice one from De Molen!
