richie747 (39) - Sydney, - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle from Bodegraven. Pours a small dark brown, oily, head that dissipates halfway. Minor carbonation, might improve with ageing. Heavy alcohol and musky barrel aromas. Syrop or port style mouthfeel. Complex mix of dark choc, dark fruits, and a sweet caramel bourbon. Would age well, and score better in 5 years time.

Aroma is dark malts, dark fruit funk and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is caramel, big berries/raspberries, bourbon, dark fruit funk and a mix of acidity, earthy and mild sweetness in the finish.

Bottle @ 10.8% ABV. Thick, viscous, gloopy, black. Big bourbon aromas. Taste is heavy treacle, burnt, roasted, vanilla bourbon. This is a really heavy one, but delicious as always from De Molen... kings of the impy stout.

Aroma is bourbon with some chocolate and light roasted grains. Taste is bourbon with a chocolate malty sweetness and a light roasted grain bitterness. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a quality crafted brew that is well balanced and tasty.

Rating #1462 - 11.02.2015 - On tap @sugarbowl Black as an abandoned murder scene that has been torched with kerosene. Aroma is heavy roast malt, espresso, molasses, oak. Taste is heavy on roast malt and coffee flavours, lots of burnt sugar, toffee, bourbon vanilla, blackstrap molasses. A beauteous beer that hits on all of my favourite things. #5whore

mariuspoenari (1107) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2015
Pitch black pour, thick, with a small dark-espresso head that is slow to rise to the surface. The bourbon is predominant in the smell, along with caramel, oak, vanilla, cocoa and alcohol. The taste is a bit overwhelmed by the bourbon, as well, making it a bit unbalanced, but not too bad, in my books. Bourbon, oak, a hint of sour cherries, burnt malt, caramel, vanilla. Thick bodied with almost no carbonation.
