A discovery and as I see not so many pleople have tried it... It is a very good beer. As usual De Molen people made a wonderful job at the Imperial stout...

Bottle & Draft @ Eet & Bierlokaal De Molen.
Aroma is huge roast and massive hops.
Flavour is intense roasty bitterness, followed by hop bitterness, fading to malty sweet roastyness. Lingering for ever. Very intense. Great stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at De Molen pouring up nice and dark mahogany with tall tight light mocha head containing larger bubbles here and there. The foam leaves behind clumpy lacing along the inside of the glass. The aroma is full of bakerís chocolate, chocolate milk powder, malt balls, some dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee and spicy black licorice. Smells dandy and for such a big beer Iím getting almost not booziness. The taste has bold rich dark roasted coffee and dark roasted malt notes rolling into yummy rich chocolate and some burnt malts. It has a thin body that is noticed just as a mild level of booziness comes to the surface about midway. Behind those notes I get spicy black licorice as well as an almost tart citrus lemon like hoppiness. Darn nice bold flavor with hardly any notice of the huge ABV.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 Corked bottle. Deep dark brown color, almost opague. Malt, caramel, chocolate and nutmeg in the aroma. Licorice. Spicy, malty sweet alcoholic flavor with licorice, coffee, vanilla, nutmeg, caramel and dark chocolate. Full bodied, complex, but too spicy for me. (8 4 7 3 16 = 3.8)
Tap, september 2012. Intense roasty aroma. Licorice, dark chocolate. Very intense roasty flavor. Extra pure chocolate, licorice and coffee. Spicy notes. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel. You can taste the alcohol, but the roast dominates. Still, the complexity is there. Wow!

Bottle: thanks Rudy!
No gusher but the foam came slowly crawling out of the bottle.
A medium to bigger vast brown head, changes slowly into a vast closed brown lacing, on top of a deep black colored beer.
Smell gass, roasted malts, some hints of thicker liquorice, hint of hops
Taste is a nicely balanced mix of lots of roasted ingredients with a light hoppy touch and a growing bitterness towards the end.
Roasted malts, roasted barleys, hops, liquorice citrus and yeast. Good bitter with lots of roasted grains. Nice and pretty crisp!
Good bitter and good roasted ingredients with a hint of anise in the aftertaste.
Medium carbo, growing/exploding creamy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy thicker light sticky texture.
