@Öltripp Köpenhamn. Flaska från Mikkeller Bar. Känns inte som en typisk Imperial Stout men helt ok.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(Drinking date: 24 May 2014) Very nice aroma of chocolate, burned malt, coffee. Pitchblack beer, beige foam which disappears quickly. Taste is sweet and bitter. Coffee bitterness, and chocolate sweetness. Lovely taste. The carbonation is flat, which is good. But the body of the beer is a bit too watery, but stil sticky. Overall, this is a really delicious beer. If the body was a bit thicker, it would have been even more perfect. Total score: 4.3

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Limpido color marrone scuro con un fragile velo di schiuma beige chiaro. Aroma dolciastro e maltoso con sentori di toffee, albicocche secche, zucchero di canna e lievito; gusto dolciastro con note caramellate e leggermente tostate, seguite da un finale amarognolo, zuccherino e leggermente alcolico. Corpo medio-abbondante, effervescenza debole, struttura oleosa: meno "stout" e meno complessa dell’atteso, ma si difende ugualmente bene!

33cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Nearly black color with reddish shade, full with tiny floating particles (yeast?), minimal brown head. Aroma coffee liqueur in the nose, flavor is coffee, dark chocolate, dates, raisins, and other dried / dark fruits, rum. Alcohol is quite much noticable in the nose, throat, then in the stomach, but not disturbing, bit later appears in my head. Taste medium sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness. Full body, sticky texture, nearly flat carbonation, medium lasting fruity-bitter finish. Not as bitter as I thought, much more fruity, I’m a little bit surprised. I miss the roasty feel but anyway it’s a really good beer.

2014.05.12 - de Molen Cease & Desist (Rasputin) - 11.2oz bottle in snifter. Bottled 27/02/13.
Aroma: roasty stout aroma, more than taste delivers.
Appearance: Pours very dark, mostly opaque. Dark porter approaching inky black stout color. Little head/carbonation.
Taste: Immediate taste is obvious stout, roasted barley. This is up front but still less than implied by aroma.
Palate/Mouthfeel: much less creamy and rich than you’d expect. Has that slick/watery mouthfeel that most de Molens seem to have. Less alcohol warmth than you’d expect.
Overall, a tasty 10% abv Imperial stout masquerading as a sessionable stout.
Aroma 8/10, Appearance 4/5, Taste 8/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 15/20

Bottle. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma of coffee, loads of molasses and chocolate. Flavor is very sweet, loads of chocolate, caramel, licorice and molasses. Very sugary, yet not cloying. Very impressive beer, unbelievable I haven’t rated this yet.
