Draft Disputin at Max’s on Broadway in Baltimore, MD. (you gotta love the name change!) Pours jet black. Nose of sweet chocolate and licorice. Taste of sweet chocolate, crunchy coffee and licorice. Really blown away by the strong taste. A world class stout from my 100th’s imperial stout rating.

Zenwolf (268) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle at a tasting. So black it absorbs light.. pulls you in and gives you all your hopes and dreams. This brew delivers in spades. Deep, dark amber when put to the light. Sweet.. rich and malty with figs and chocolate. Says you can cellar for 25 years.. I didn’t have the patience...

Tap at Paradiso Dupont as De Molen Disputin’ apparently because North Coast is suing De Molen over the use of Rasputin, even though I think the Dutch brewery had it first.....sounds like a Budweiser Budvar repeat. Well I had this back to back with North Coast Rasputin. The De Molen is much better, but is not really imperial stout. More like a Belgian Strong. From the get go this beer pours a deep, clear mahogany/ruby with very thin yellow bubbles wandering around the glass but never forming a head. The aroma is more like an abt/quadrupel: dark cherries, oak, sweet candied figs, chocolate truffles. Taste is dark fruit forward, rich, sweet, very nice cocoa coming through. A little bit chalky in the finish. Excellent overall. Blind tasting this I would say Belgian quad or something reminiscent of Westy 8.

presario (4756) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle 152 bottled Feb 1 2008. Dark brown. Not as thick as expected for a IRS. Tasty caramel licorice toffee with strong smooth alcohol note. More sherry-port like than thick IRS. Tastier with each sip. Smooth.

tijs (2) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 15, 2010 does not count
A pitch black beer. Very foamy. The taste is quite complex. Bitter with a very licorice like taste as well. It’s a strong beer unfit for a quick drink. I imagine this would go well with a roast or another nice and flavourful meat dish.

Pours black with a long tan head. The nose is bit fruity with, chocolate and roasted malt. The taste is ashy, dark fruit, roasted malt and a touch of sourness.

Bottle kindly shared by plovmand, thanks body! Pours cloudy brown with a tan head. Aroma is pleasant oak, bourbon, dark fruits, and sweet malt. The flavour is even better, nice smooth and complex with notes of bourbon, oak, sweet tobacco, dark fruits and vanilla.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a creamy light tan head. The aroma is hops, chocolate, bourbon, dark fruit and some roast. The flavour is lots of dark fruit, chocolate, tobacco, light smoke, caramel, molasses and hops. Full bodied. Nice and complex.
