Vestergaard (366) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Tap at Fermentoren Aarhus. Pours clear, reddish dark brown. Almost black. Small, oily, tan head. Aroma has chocolate, bourbonlike booziness, licorice, toffee and a sharp roast. Taste is fairly sugar-sweet, roasted, licorice, toffee, coffee, dried fruits, and with a slight heat in the end. Full, oily body and a low carbonation.

Great Imperial Stout! Dark brown color with red rubin reflex at light, big tan head, really foamy, sweet caramel malt and vanilla aroma, not "roasted" taste, sweet, with malt, vanilla, cream and light licorice notes, creamy body and not carbonation, delicious aftertaste... For me De Molen is one of the best brewers in the world...

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2014 Tap @ Fermentoren. I think this is the 3rd time I am drinking this. Why haven’t I rated this before? Well. Okay. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma is huge and has vanilla ice cream up front. Lots of milky chocolate, dark sweet fruits, coffee and some molasses. Not very roasted on the nose which suits the milky feel great! Taste is a bit more roasted and offer some coffee notes as well. Milky vanilla ice cream is still there along with some dark dried fruits, sweet liquorice, chocolate and some molasses. This is very good! A bit underrated IMO!

Wow. On tap. Deep brown black with tan head of loose bubbles that lasts. Exquisite aroma of coffee , chocolate and melted caramel Taste initially slightly bitter espresso morphing into a luscious caramel chocolate sweetness. Alcohol pleasantly warm in the throat Rich on the palate. Modest carbonation Very respectable indeed.

Kaatuu snifteriin mustana ja melko tiiviinä, melko vaalealla noin sormen paksuisella pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu on vahvan paahtunut, lähes palanut sekä yllättävästi ruisleipäinen. Reilusti on myös lakritsaa ja kevyemmin marjaista otetta. Maku on todella paahtunut, edelleen, mutta nyt lakritsaisuus on huomattavasti vahvempaa. Lakritsin seassa on jopa salmiakkista otetta. Paahteisuus on melkein palaneen puolella, mutta vain lähes. Puukin tulee jostain syystä mieleen ja nuotiomainen savuisuus tulee mieleen, kun palaneisuus ja puu yhdistetään.. Monipuolinen ja täyteläinen maku. Suutuntuma on täyteläinen ja öljymäisen tuhti. Humalan puraisukin tuntuu selvästi, muttei ole liian dominoiva. Alkoholi pysyy täysin piilossa. Täyteläinen ja monipuolinen IS, De Molenin ehdotonta parhaimmistoa. Oman leimansa tuo tuoksun paahtunut leipä ja maun nuotiosavu, paahteisuuden ja lakritsin hieno yhdistelmä. Maut sopivasti tasoittuneet, juotu pullo näytti olevan 1,5 vuotta vanhaa.

BeerViking (2467) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle, deep dark red-brown, thin fast-settling head, wooden barrels, cocoa and old wine aromas, molasses, herbal bitterness, touches of cocoa and gravy, rich and thick with a chewy and slightly sweet woodiness.

Ferris (4128) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2013 - Bitter chocolate, dark fruit and syrupy molasses. Jet brown with a thin white head. Bitter cocoa and malts, light molasses and a long bitter finish.

fajry (560) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 10, 2014
Flaša. Čierna farba, krémová pena, padla však rýchlo. Vôňa jemne sladová a karamelová, výraznejšie pražené slady, káva a najmä prezreté slivky. Chuť sladká sladovosť, pražené slady, karamel a v pozadí káva a kakao. Telo plné, väčšia nasýtenosť. Na začiatku prevláda na jazyku ostrosť a alkohol, neskôr jemná suchosť a chmelová horkosť. Veľmi dobrý stout!

33l bottle at home. Very dark brown with a small off-white head. Medium to full body with low carbonation. Sweet with some herbal bitter tones. Dark chocolate, caramel, dark fruits, hops and some wood. Quite an exquisite full flavoured brew.

One of my favourite. If it had a better shape or more rich foam I would gave it much higher mark. Really excellent beer but on the otjer hand milky enough.
