pivnizub (8800) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2010
Bottle: Very dark brown coloured, presumably hazy, huge tanned fluffy head; mainly sweet dried fruits with roasted malt in the nose, supported by slight traces of tobacco and leather; solid sweet flavour with a delicate bitterness, full bodied, a bit fizzy; slightly lingering, drier leathery and sweet-fruity finish with a distinctive bitterness in the aftertaste. Pretty good.....

Bottle. Dark. Brown pour, huge foamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bready yeast, coffee, licorice, chocolate, some caramel and tobacco. Flavor is sweet spicy roasted malts, candy sugar, bitter coffee and some licorice. Extremely carbonated and a bubbly texture. Very nice brew.

skortila (4483) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle @ home. Huh, is this an IS? Doesn’t taste like one. The aroma has raisins, caramel, nuts. Hazy, brown coloured beer with an off-white, big head. The taste is sweet, has nuts, caramel, raisins, spices. A bit a weird beer, but tasty.

MoritzF (8464) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2010
(bottle, 33cl) Dark brown colour with a big and beige rocky foamy head. Roasty malty aroma with notes of cacao, leather, mocha and fruity notes of dark and dried berries. Sweet flavour with a well-blended hoppy and roasty bitterness, full bodied with a little fizzy feel on the tongue. Solid roasty malty and slightly molassy taste with cacao, dark chocolate, mocha and dried fruits; sweet and roasty bitter, also long lasting finish with notes of chocolate and coffee in the aftertaste. 11.VIII.10

dEnk (3791) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle @ home, howitzer cap, slight gusher. Pours a deep black with an absolutely huge light brown head which basicly doesn’t dissipate, took forever to pour. Aroma of fruity and floral hops, yeast, caramel, mocca, dark/dried fruits, liquorice and lots more, awesome! Flavour is creamy coffee, sweet and salt liquorice, fruity hops, earthy hops, caramel, faint smoke and mocca. Lingers on very long and fades away very smoothly. Very nice hoppy stout.

Bottle. [thank you Feldthaus]
Pours dark chestnut brown with a big, frothy, beige head. Aroma is sweet, lots of hazelnuts, light oak, chocolate, some slight tannins and roasted malts. Highish carbonation, fair creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is surprisingly limited for an impy, especially for a De Molen impy. Or, more likely, this isn’t as roasted as all other stouts are. Hazelnuts, milky chocolate, high vinousness. Fairly sweet as well. Not really my favourite De Molen, even though there is nothing really wrong with it.
