Douberd (2901) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2014
Bottle 330 ml, green waxed, into a Borefts taster at home, ABV 11% Pours totally black with a head that begins like bubbles but eventually forms a small brown foam, average retention, light lacing around the glass. Aroma of black olive pit, roasted malts, not much smoke, some bourbon, notable alcohol. NIce taste, roasted malts, not very sweet and with light bitterness on the finish and the aftertaste, warming feeling on the body from the alcohol, whiskey notes, again not much smoke. Medium thick body, low carbonation. Overall a very good imperial stout from De Molen, really enjoyable.

martin00sr (1158) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2014
Pours very dark, almost black. Small tan head. Aroma of oak, raisins. Thick mouthfeel, more oak and raisins. Sweetish, roasted, very discrete smoke. Piercing bitterness that goes along well with the malt. Low carb, sticky finish with some coffee. Very nice.

> A savory, well integrated smoked H&V derivative with no formaldehyde and no sugary sweetness

[ Bottle ][ Etre Gourmet ][ 33cl ][ $20 ][ Southampton RIS Snifter ][ 3/17/14 ]
>> Pours clear sepia, low carbonation, a god blessed head forms with some high pouring and coaxing. Spotty yellow lacing. Nose is sweet prosciutto, rich smoked meat, salt cured ham, lemon pepper steak. Taste up front is warming, nicely bitter, smoked ancho chilies, seasoned flank steak, savory smoked pate. Oh man this one is good...finally after about 5 flops from De Molen and a $100 wasted, this one delivers.

>!< Could be more bitter, palate finishes a tad chalky...don’t pour in any sediment

Bottled from de Molen shop, Bodegraven. Opaque black, small brown head. Powerful nose, malts, coffee, licorice, raisins, leather, some smoke. Very thick mouthfeel, roasted malts, sweetness with quite some bitterness, caramel, somewhat dry in finish. Aroma is better than flavor, but overall still a very good beer.
