PatBateman81 (178) - Caserta, ITALY - APR 29, 2011
Bottle 33 cl bought @ Bir & Fud Bottega (Rome, Italy). Pours intense brown with ruby reflexes. Aroma of dark fruits, herbs, hops, typical De Molen in the end. RateBeer classifies as a Belgian Strong Ale, but for me has NOTHING of that style. As a matter of fact, BeerAdvocate state: "Russian Imperial Stout". Anyway, it distance itself from pimp IRS: taste is dark fruits, coffee, wood, cocoa, pepper. Some vanilla, some meds. A hint of marzipan, right carbonation. Nice finish of Saaz, grassy. Not bad, balanced but probably nothing new. Hel & Verdoemenis remains THE De Molen basic IRS still.

(33cl bottle brewed May 23, 2010 bottled Jun 24, 2010 thanks to bu11zeye) clear rich ruby with a lasting tan creamy head. Nose of brown sugar, chocolate malt, and a bit of smoke. Taste of brown sugar, smoke, whiskey, bitter and flavorful. Creamy and awesome palate linger. Nice beer!

shrubber85 (9137) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 24, 2011
Bottle at First German Ratebeer gathering at Idar Oberstein courtesy of Travlr. Prune/chocolate malt and astringent alcohol aroma. Dark brown color with large head. Sweet prune/brown sugar malt and astringent/bitter alcohol finish. Nicely made - but probably not the best idea to have this towards the end of an epic session.

Habanero (3310) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 23, 2011
Bottled. Pours opaque, deep brown with a red glow and a huge, creamy and beige head. Excellent lacings. Nose of roasted malts and lemon notes. Sweet flavour with caramel, sweet coffee, dark fruits and alcohol notes.Full bodied. Flat carbonation. Oily texture. The finish is more dry with a little bitterness and alcohol notes. Nice indeed.

spkevin (398) - Doetinchem, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2011
Bottle from De Molen, Bodegraven. Dark brown/black pour with a big beige head. Roasted malts, wood and chocolate in the aroma. The same hints in the taste. Mostly roasted malts. Very nice intense taste. Smooth finish with a long aftertaste. Great brew!

GBZ59 (1193) - BARCELONA (Catalonia), SPAIN - APR 9, 2011
Enjoyed on 3/12/11 in a Pint glass. Pure black, dark amber lights on sides. Foam dense, coffe&milk color neither much creamy nor persistent as expected. No lacing shown. Complex aroma, toasted notes & dry nuts. Intense toasted malt & cocoa hints hidden by dry bitterness & excesive carbonation. Little fat in mouth. I felt quite dissapointed in the overall, ´cause if a Brw knows how to perform a perfect Russian... for sure De Molen does, unfortunately not in Mooi case.

abemorsten (3265) - Mosterřy, NORWAY - APR 4, 2011
Clear deep ruby red. Caramel and dark fruits in the inviting aroma. Sweet, roasted and bitter flavors. The drink grows unpleasantly in the mouth. Full bodied. Oily texture with a dry finish.
