JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - FEB 20, 2012
Brewed in September 2011. I tasted this Stout side by side with the Beer Geek Brunch Wiesel by Mikkeller. Pours black with a thin brown foam disc. Compared to Mikk’s one, this stout is clearly coffee driven. Geek Brunch Wiesel is more like a Shiraz wine (dried plum, black olive and liquorice). Very interesting to see such a difference between two "similar" beers. I mean brewed with the same coffee variety. So back to De Molen: coffee grounds, roasting, burnt bread, animal. Superb coffee flavours in mouth, nice dryness but some metallic notes ruin a bit this "#1 Imperial Stout" picture. Very enjoyable anyway.

330 ml bottle courtesy of rlgk. Shared at epic tasting on February 11. pours very dark brown with a small light brown head that leaves lots of trace on the glass while slowly dissipating. Smell is slightly sweet and quite intense with lots of quality coffee, roasted malts, green chili, resinous wood and bitter chocolate. Taste is sweet and malty with heavily roasted malts, quality coffee, dark bread and hints of liquorice. Mouthfeel is creamy, intense and full-bodied. Finish is dry and bitter with lots of coffee.

Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 17, 2012
Aroma of massive coffee with some ashes and soil. Pours as dark black as an espresso with a small, tanned head which keeps a nice lacing. The flavor is again coffee with nice fruity notes. The ending is a bit bitter with the taste of cold espresso that stays behind. Nice to try, but I probably won’t get it again. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 (Bottle) Pours black with a pale brown head. The aroma holds boatlods of aromatic coffee, malt roast and mild hops.

The flavour is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic. Tones of complex coffee, resinous hops, deep malt roast and light fruits. The mouthfeel is round, clean and oily with a light carbonation. Lingering bitter hops and complex roast. Medium to full bodied.

Bottle at Schouskjelleren shared with Daje
Pours black with a espresso head. Smells of fruityness, coffee and roasted malts. Flavor of roasted malts and good sweetness, the coffe i’m not so sure about though... i think it’s not that good that it could have been. Feels quite cheap. Finish off with a nice bitter finish

brnandersen (2156) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2012
0,33 l. bottle in to a snifter. Pitch black with a small, tanned head. Massive coffee aroma with roasted malts, peas and sour, unripe berries. Some bread as well. Light bitter, roasted taste. Full body with an oily texture. Never ending finish with a solid coffee and berries mouthfeel, the alcohol appears at the very end. Very, very good...

Bottled@Konttori, Tampere. Pitch black colour, big beigeish brown head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is coffee, roasted malts, mild toffee and some slight alcohol as well. Flavour is quite much the same in a pleasant harmony. I recall the former Kopi Loewak was more peppery and burning than this. So for being stronger than the former one, I think the malt base has been quite changed as well.
