23rd Aug 2014: shared bottle with Fin and Mat at Sophieís Creperie. What a lovely beer, so smooth and interesting. The barrel aging has mellowed the base beer and given it an extra dimension. Chocolate notes abound and blend very well with the old oakiness of the barrels: most impressive.

Bottle courtesy of Matt, (cheers Matt!) We had this sat in the Creperie Sophie, in company of Mat, Loz, Jeremy and some of Jeremyís family, Shrewsbury, Saturday 23rd August 2014 Wonderfully soft and silky, warming, its smooth and has an air of indulgence about it, like a very fancy chocolate. Black with a light beige head. Superb, wonderful easy drinking big beer. The barrel ageing works wonderfully here integrating well with the beer as opposed to dominating which sadly is often the case with many other big beers like this. This is the best beer of the day and a beer that truly plays to Mennos strengths as a brewer, cheers Matt. A8 A5 T9 P4 Ov17 4.3

purchased at de molen biershop, the smokyness is still there, great moderate barrel characteristics. The base beer is a big smoky beast, this is great

Bahumat (106) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
De Molen - Hemel & Aarde -- Appearance: 4/5. Cola-brown-black with so little head I was worried it had lost a seal in the cap. Almost flat in appearance, but a very tiny head appears after a few seconds and then fades. -- Aroma: 6/10. Smells fine, faint malt and smoke, difficult to get much nose off of it. Slight, pleasant sourness. -- Taste: 9/10. Gentle smokiness to start, with a *rich* chocolate midbody and lingering mocha over the tongue. Very sweet, with some acidity. Like a dark chocolate syrup brewed into beer, in a good way. Definite notes of caramel. Some molasses in the end. Pure dessert beer, yum. -- Palate: 4/5. Very smooth and silky, with only gentle lingering astringency and very milky, cloying sweetness, in a good way. -- Overall: 17/20. Really, the only failing in this beer is the lack of aroma intensity, but thatís the only real flaw to be found. Itís a marvelously chocolatey beer, and I feel like the overall rating score doesnít really do it proper justice. I donít find that much smoke to it though; itís pretty subtle, which isnít a bad thing. -- -- TL;DR: De Molen once again makes a world class imperial stout, for the hundreth time. Drink, enjoy.
