Sample from 75cl bottle (bottled Oct 2011) courtesy of sebletitje, merci! @kraddel’s Post Toer de Geuze tasting.
Heaps of roasted dark chocolate potential gone awry by a heavy vodka nose, slightly off-sourness, alcoholic molasses and a light mouthfeel unequipped to carry those 13%. All the goodness is on the back of the tongue and in the deep bitter quality dark chocolate aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cl. bottle sampled thx! to Sebletitje. Bottle on 20/10/2011. G U S H E R which is odd for a 13 ABV RIS – infected. Lighter black, woody, mocha head is very patchy. Mocha in the nose, light grape and spices, light nose, coffee grounds, light almost sour hint,… Taste is bitter roasted mocha, light cacao, infected a bit in the nose but not in taste, very bitter chocolate, liquorish, very warming, burning in the finish, light molasses and very, very heavy on the booze. Touch too light body.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Thanks Cees and Mark.
Light gusher. Completely black with a small, creamy, beige head. Good lacings. Aroma is sweet, milky, roasted and chocolate. Medium carbonation, creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, chocolate, liqourice, vinious. Quite sharp in its finish. For a De Molen Imperial Stout, this is very unbalanced.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at De Molen. Poured a deep black colour with a bubbly tan head. A hint of maltiness in the aroma with an amazingly rich flavour. There is a liquorice and coffee in there with some mild bitterness. What amazes me about this beer is that for a 13% ale, the alcohol is so well hidden. Congratulations Menno!
