Black color, with generous, brownish, compact head. Aroma of coffee, sugar floss, chili pepper and black pepper, and a trace of ash. Good body; the relatively low carbonation allows the mouthfeel to be soft; strong coffee flavor, with some caramel too; nice peppery note; but overall the feeling of roasted and burnt beans or grains is too much for me; the coffeish and pepper touch mingle well with the high alcohol content, creating a tickling feeling on the tongue. Good, peculiar.

33cl from DeMolen biershop. BB 05/09/2011.
Brune foncée, col fin beige, léger doré sur le verre.
Arôme de café restant bien en avant, note choco/cara et grillé.
En bouche, palais est malté, café Kopi bien présent sans pour cela donner le fini que j’espérais. Conserve encore une note levure et houblonnée qui se font présents sans pour cela être au dessus. Garde ce fini de marc de café, épais en bouche sur un léger pétillant.

Thanks to Ibrew2or3 for the share! Pours dark brown with red hues and a tan head. Aroma has lots of coffee, coffee berries and chili pepper. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Light not medium bodied and oily. The beer has a dry finish. Pretty good, but I like the Macallen treatment better.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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
