Slubgob (230) - West Hartford, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle (dated 18/4/12) poured into pint. Vigorous, thick tan head, opaque mahogany body. Slightly fruity nose hints at the high alcohol, with coffee notes predominating. Very dense, rich flavor of roasted malts, bit of plums? Finish seems to go on forever, malt and coffee. A huge, rich, bold stout.

suurjuust (1805) - ESTONIA - MAR 20, 2015
Brown beer, small tan head. Nose is stale coffee, roast, booze notes. Flavor is more stale coffee, malts and roast, chocolate notes, soy sauce, dried fruit. Lingering alcohol burn with roast notes. Dissonance of booze and coffee.

SlovakSniper (3908) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 16, 2015
Embouteillée le 24/01/13. Robe noire et son anneau chétif. Au nez, le café est arrondi par le cacao et par des raisins doux. Pas de trace d’alcool. Au goût, c’est un peu prévisible : le café fond à l’intérieur d’une base maltée a priori douce et toujours fruitée. En bouche, la mort du corps s’accepte avec difficulté. En finale, le chocolat s’allonge sur des notes amères de café. Pas mauvais mais loin d’être très bon. Mais De Molen c’est toujours ça : tu tombes parfois sur le très bon et parfois sur le juste correct.

GlassBrass440 (290) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 7, 2015
Bottled: 24 Jan 2013. Pours a thin brownish black with absolutely no head. Very complex aroma. Coffee, roasted peppers, chipotle, blueberries, soy sauce. Flavor is a savory chocolate (molé?). A sour twinge. Coffee. Some phenols that border on plasticy, but don’t quite cross that line. Body is thin at first but thickens in the finish along with some residual sweetness.

Pours black with little to no head. Coffee, bitterness, and sweetness. Very nice mouthfeel.

cards04 (2350) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 26, 2015
Pours black with lots of mocha head. Nice aromas of fresh coffee, lactose, strawberries, dark fruit, toffee. A bit thin for an imperial stout but the alcohol is no where to be found. Just fantastic coffee, red fruit, and sweet cream flavors. Great stuff.

minutemat (2504) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2015
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe, and also trade with Benzai. Pours pitch black with non-existent head. Completely flat, as is often the case. Some mediocre bitter coffee notes alongside slick dumbed down roasted malts. A bit disappointing.

Kavu (2928) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2015
0,33l bottle @ Pikkulintu. Pours very dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is sweet roasted malts, coffee and alcohol. Flavor is sweet roasted malts, lots of good coffee, dark chocolate, alcohol and hops. Swell.
