Made with the most heavily peated malt in the world from the Bruichladdich distillery. Almost pitch black and opaque, small head. Furiously peated aroma, hiding the malt, licorice and dark chocolate somewhat. Very full bodied, thick mouthfeel, like fluid bread. Dark chocolate, loads of peat, lapsang souchong tea, chocolate cake, culminating in an almost endless aftertaste that also has licorice.
Alcohol varies by batch.

Sin duda la imperial stout que prefiero de los casi infalibles De Molen. Oscura, bien balanceada, con un sabor más de turba que de humo propiamente dicho. Es muy fácil de beber, y tiene el cuerpo justo para que no se haga pesada. Postgusto largo, torrefacto, de chocolate y regaliz muy agradable. Envejece muy bien, y las versiones del 2010 y anteriores bien merecen la pena lo que puedan costar.

Maakun (700) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
Black with minimal beige head. Massive peat, burnt toast, tart berries, yoghurt, barnyard. Taste is sour, with a light sweetness and burnt bitter finish. Medium bodied. Complex and interesting stuff, but not too into the yoghurt notes. Seems a bit infected or something.

Majek (354) - Ząbki, POLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Pitch black, big and very dense head. Incredibly strong aroma of peated malt, licorice, smoked wood with chocolate background. Taste is very dry, full of peat, slighlty smoked and chocolate. Creamy, full body. Soft carbonation. Rich and tasty beer, rather for peated-beer lovers.

Aroma of old wooden doors with that was spilled with roasted barley malts for few years. Taste is way better. Nice brew, however won’t buy again.

Bottle from Ølbutikken. Nice head still flowing from the bottle. Incredibly full flavour of peat, licorice and chocolate. One of the best imperial stouts I've tried so far. Long aftertaste, only the aroma is a bit timid.

Rich full bodied impy stout. Peat does come through but is balanced by the heavy malts,
