Minkenbraeu (8) - GERMANY - MAY 29, 2014 does not count
Im Glas zeigt das Bier eine dunkelbraune, intensive Farbe. Der Geruch besticht durch Noten von Vanille, Kaffee und anderen Aromen dunklen Malzes. Das Bourbon-Fass kommt schon in der Nase deutlich durch. Im Geschmack bestätigen sich die im Geruch vorgefundenen Noten. Unterlegt mit kräftigen Röstmalzaromen schmeckt man Schokolade, Kaffee, Vanille und auch ein leicht alkoholischer Geschmack ist wahrnehmbar. Ein durchaus gutes Bier, welchem es jedoch meiner Meinung nach noch an der Feinabstimmung im Fassausbau mangelt.

mkam (186) - POLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Botle. Pours pitch black, nice head, that quickly dissapeared. Aroma of coffee, some dried fruits and bourbon notes. Taste is rather sweet, roasted malts, coffee, wood and bourbon. Beer is high bodied, very thick. Carbonation is low. Alcohol noticable, does not interrupt. Very good imperial stout.

CraftBeerNick (899) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Bottle at home, 25th April 14. Pours with little or no head, quite unusual, no lacing. The beer has some bourbon on the nose, liquorice, the first thing that hits you is the huge mouth feel, really thick, nice, but more so than any other De Molen imperial stout. There is leather, liquorice in the taste, the bourbon is faint. Liked this one, quite decadent

Douberd (2298) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter, ABV 10.8%, side to side with the Rum Barrel Aged version, bottled on Sep. 17 2013 Pours totally black, with a brown thin line forming where the beer meets the glass, plus some bubbles on the surface. No lacing, even after a swirl of the glass, nothing sticks on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, wood, faint alcohol, weak bourbon. Taste is much better, quite sweet, with roasted malts, the alcohol accompanying nicely, some wood, light vanilla. Very thick body, maybe the thickest I’ve met in a De Molen beer, or at least the thickest I can remember now. Low carbonation that fits perfectly. Overall a great IRS, not heavy on the bourbon or wood notes though, very enjoyable.

Habanero (2624) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - APR 9, 2014
Bottled. Pours deep brown near to black with a tan, medium sized and creamy tan head. Malty nose of bitter chocolate, vanilla and notes of bourbon. Sweet flavor that ends up dry with alcohol notes. Full to medium bodied, oily texture and flat to soft carbonation. An excellent impy.
