4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle from Bierkoning, Amsterdam; bottled 28 August 2012
It pours dark brown, not black, with barely some sparse head. The aroma is a peat festival, pure Laphroaig, with haring and iodine. The base beer is not as roasty as other Imperial Stouts, it’s instead well malty, with caramel, rather sweet; the peaty character is excellent; there is a mild salty presence, and a relatively strong bitterness; as usual, the alcohol is well managed.
Two thirds Barley Wine, one fourth Imperial Stout; another masterpiece by Menno.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Borefts BF 2012, Bodegraven. Pours dark black-brown with a fine, beige foam head. Rich dark chocolate on the nose, some smokey barrel notes. Big sweet flavor with oily chocolate, moderte roast, light peat, burnt sugars. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Chewy. Lightly warming finish with further oily chocolate notes, rich chocolate cake, light roast and peat. Great stuff. Fine, I’m a sucker for the De Molen monster stouts.
