Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Smoke was just too overwhelming on this one. Very well made but not very drinkable.

Very strong peat smoke almost chemical in nature. Very assertive smokeyness with some dark fruits and a touch of chocolate and licorice. A bit too much peat smoke in here but still interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Roasted, a bit bit boozy, nose, milk, coffee, dark chocolate. Dark body with brown head, that last for a while, not a tonne of lacing. Taste is nicely sweet and roasted, some booze. Very well balanced. Overall, a very nice stout.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Pours with a fair bit of carbonation. I get a bit of smoke on the nose but not as much as I was expecting. What does not show up in the aroma sure shows up on the palate. Lots of smoke up front, lots of carbonation, a bit liquorice, boozy. Very nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells smokey. Pitch black with offwhite/light brown foam. Served to cold so less taste then original i guess. Taste of smokey and chocolate, quite sweet. Quite thin to be an imp stout. All over good, like the style, but there are a lot of more interesting imp stouts out there

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33l bottle from Sörspecialista, Budapest. Opaque, black colored beer with medium, creamy, light-brown head. Chocolate, smoke, roasted malt and some caramel appears in the aroma. It’s less hoppy, than Hel & Verdoemenis, but it has stronger malt flavours, esspecially smoked malt, which gives it a bit meet flavour. Wooden cask and alcohol flavour also appears. It’s medium sweet because of the alcohol. Creamy texture, full body and average carbonation. Smoky finish. With its smoky malt flavours it’s another unique Imperial Stout from De Molen. Creamy, full bodied and alcoholly. Delicious and strong one.
