Black color, no head. Aroma of roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, nuts, tobacco, smoke. Taste is light sweet, light bitter, nice balance. Medium body, oily to creamy texture, soft to flat carbonation. Probably one of the best coffee IS I have had, really nice coffee flavor

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, from Holiday Wine Cellars in Escondido, CA. Imported by Sheldon Brothers edition. Over the past few years I’ve been on the hunt for more brews from De Molen. Appearance is nothing short of stellar; pitch black with a cascading head as it is poured into my snifter. Lively carbonation settles into a fat, pillowy head that lasts throughout the entire glass. Perfection in that category. Notes of dark chocolates, plum, pancake batter and rich coffee loft off the head. The aroma is killer, my favorite aspect of this beer. Flavor follows suit here but with less intensity. The palate is rich and coating; the beer leaves a fine slick on the mouth which fades to coffee bitterness and dryness as the experience ends. For me, this falls just short of what Alesmith has done with Kopi Luwak Speedway Stout here in San Diego, California USA, but it is a damn close second. Well done De Molen.

Pour is a dark brown, almost black color, with a fizzy tan head. The nose has a touch of roasted malt and then delicious coffee that is better on beer than real coffee. Taste is same, roasty, tons of well integrated clean coffee with hints of vanilla and chocolate and a light to moderate bitterness. Body is creamy and airy, assertive carbonation. Integrates the coffee extremely well without being ashy or peaty and overly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Way too much carb. Green pepper nose combines with coffee/oak. Taste delivers bitter, black coffee and the roasty base. Decent, not exceptional.
