jbeatty (945) - New York, USA - APR 28, 2012
May 2011 bottle, thanks to Jeffo, tasted 04/28/2012. Pours opaque, nearly black, substantial tan head recedes to a nice crema on the surface. Rich, lovely coffee in the aroma with sweet chocolate and roast character, mild fruity notes, hops evident. Taste is dark roasted malts with sweet coffee, rather peculiar herbal/vegetable quality but not off-putting, mild bitter finish. Palate medium thin, but smooth, alcohol not noticeable. Another solid stout from De Molen.

Palme (2993) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 18, 2012
0.33l bottle from Ølbutikken. Have been saving this for a while. It pours a near pitch black body with a small heavy lacing chocolate head. The aroma in this one is filled with tons of dark black coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, sweetness, some alcohol, dark biscuits and fudge like chocolate ice cream. In the flavor I immediately get a hint of something light acidic next to the obvious dark roasted flavors, and I think it suits it quite elegantly. Chocolate, lots of coffee and roasted malts before it glides over in to a much more hoppy character. I was expecting a somewhat fuller body, but it’s really light drinkable and really tasty! Long lingering roasted - almost burned-roasted finish and aftertaste. I like! 05.04.2012

VsXsV (1895) - Linköping, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2012
Bottle. 2011 vintage. Opaque, black liquid with medium tan head. Aroma of expensive coffee, chocolate, ash, licorice, caramel, smoke and cereal malt. Taste is very light sweet, medium bitter with notes of coffee and peat/smoke. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Quite good imperial stout but nothing too impressing. Lots of coffee.

R_Pothuizen (18) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2012
Purchased in the brewery after a rondtour. Dark brown beer nice head with a nice structure. Aroma chocolate, coffee malts and bitter The basic taste (scale from 1 to 5) sweet: 0, sour: 0, Bitter: 3, the after taste: sweet: 2, sour: 1, bitter: 3 Good balanced, not overdone coffeeflafours. Something smooth present and that’s nice. EBU says 85 and that’s is weird, because Rook & Vuur has 28 EBU but is much more bitter… A little sweetness stays present in my throat. Body (scale 1 to 5): 2. Not my kind of beer. Label: The beername is in Dutch, but the rest of the information is in English

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
Picked up at De Molen. Pours deep dark mahogany with thin dark tan head. The aroma offers up an amazing and unexpected level of jalapeno chili pepper meat and some hot capsaicin as well as some dark roasted malts and a light chocolate note. The taste is thin and prickly with a bit of over carbonation and ushering in some chocolate, spicy anise spice, dark roasted malts, burnt malts, a bit of oily dark roasted coffee and then chili pepper meat into the finish.
