Bamsen78 (2993) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle @ D-Day in Mojnlandet :-) Pours cloudy very dark brown with small tan head. Clear aroma of roast and coffee. Roasty flavour with sweet notes of caramel malt and fruit as well as coffee but above all, alcohol. Bitter and roasty aftertaste with sweetish notes. Dusty second nose. Very low carbonation. OK but more interesting than delicious.

tom10101 (2664) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Bottled on 24-01-2013. Black with a thin ring of brown foam and no lacing. Arorma is of coffee with boozy notes, some spiciness and red fruits. Taste is also of coffee/roasted malt, some spices, red fruits and alcohol. Medium to full body. Low carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Warming finish. Not bad, but somewhat disappointing for a De Molen RIS. Lack of depth. Maybe it’s already too old.

Fluxing (270) - POLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Butelkowane 24.01.2013. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana niska, gesta, powoli opada, zostawia gruba obraczke i lekko oblepia szklo. W zapachu intensywna kawa, orzechy, palonosc, praliny, likier, lekki przyjemny alkohol, lekki makowiec. W smaku polpelne, praktycznie w ogole nie jest slodkie, mocno wytrawne jak na Imperial Stouta, intensywnie kawowe i palone, lekko likierowate i alkoholowe, niestety gorsze niz zapowiadalby to zapach. Goryczka wysoka, sciagajaca, bardziej alkoholowa niz chmielowa. Wysycenie srednie.

ferit (124) - Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2014
Schuim snel weg. Goede geur. Extreme koffie geur en smaak. Erg bitter. Eerste smaak zoetig en vol. Daarna koffie met veel bitter. Iets teveel bitter naar mijn smaak. Het had eel iets zachts in kunnen zitten. Jammer.

Silvan7 (656) - Samarate, ITALY - APR 22, 2014
Bottle @ home. Birrra marrone scuro impenetrabile con riflessi rubino . schiuma beige fine ed abbastanza persistente. aroma tostato, di caffè liquore, erbe aromatiche, cioccolato, peperoncino fresco tagliato. dolce amabile, con toni di cioccolato, tostatura e caffè. Poco amara, e decisamente liquorosa. Corposa, calda ed avvolgente, è una birra carbonata ma con un grande equilibrio e una discreta armonia.

Pitch dark with quickly dissapearing brown foam head. Aroma is cold coffee, some chocolate. Likewise taste, surprisingly not too bitter. Lasting coffee aftertaste. (Velp 201404)
