Vaiz (3730) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2010
Brewed in December, bottled in January, opened in September. I think this is the best time to open it. Some sweet fruits, licorice and roasted malts. Quite light for an imperial stout but really really well made. Great balance and amazing flavor. More awesomeness from the Molen.

clear dark brown, smooth yellow head. 4 caramelly aroma, roasted malts 7. Flavor is syruppy sweet, roasted malts, sweet malts, powdered sugar. Quite sweet malty for a russian imp stout. Dark caramel, flavor also reminds me of a dobbelbock.

faroeviking (10285) - FAROE ISLANDS - OCT 1, 2010
Flska. Pitch black. Sweet dark fruity herbal berry roasty malty alco aroma. Sticky mouthfeel. Sweet berry roasty malty chococlate sweet, vinious flavour with some liqourice.and a pleasant bitterness. Too sweet, and really.. an imperial stout.... could be better.

Nickls (1920) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Bottle. #111. Pours with a thinner tan head that didnt last long, but nice dense mahogany, nearing on black color with brown edges. Dark sweet fruits at first in the aroma, nicely roasted maltiness and gets even more intense with the flavor. Fairly hoppy as well with a dark fruit finish and dark chocolate notes. Medium body with subtler carbonation. Nice.

dEnk (4159) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2011 Bottle @ home. Deep dark pour, small tanned head. Aroma of hops, molasses, coffee, roasted malt, liquorice and laurel. Flavour is intense with hops, molasses, liquorice, laurel, roasted malt, spices and some alcohol. Perfect balance between bitter and sweet. Again an awesome De Molen IS.

Served to a glass wine, bottle 215 from January 2009 A: Brown cola like, with almost no head and a small beige lace with a bit of carbonation. S: Sweet malt, roasted coffee, bitter hops, nutty, vanilla, buttery smell. T: The same as the smell, with a medium body, slight carbonation feel, the alcohol was very well masked, a little bit of bitter lingering flavor, almost like when you drink coffee. Overall its a light highly drinkable and delicious beer, its not very complex as other RIS that I had before but this one its smoother. Will have again in a heartbeat.

Die_Kapusta (190) - Malm, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2010
This 75 cl bottle with wine cork, dipped in black wax, looks really exciting and inviting. The cork actually popped by itself, spraying my livingroom with a black liquid, so it has a lot of pressure in the bottle. The cork smells strongly of fudge, blackberry and synthetic grape flavour.

The beer looks black but in front of a light it turns intro a red/brown color. Head is beige and frothy.

Aroma is quite complex. At first I get blackberries and some floral notes. behind that is coffee and fudge.

Taste is somewhat unexpected with the same blackberry flavours as in the aroma. Also I sense licorice, dark chocolate and some wood. Its quite boozy which Im not sure I like. Mouth feel is dry.

Its not as good as Hel & Verdoemenis Misto B.A. or Hemel & Aarde that Ive tried before but still a good imperial stout. Maybe it would gain from some aging but Im to impatient to find out.

madsberg (10595) - Sborg, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2010
Bottled. Dark brown coloured. Reddish gleam. light brown head. Aromaf of chocolate, roast, sweetnes, spice light herbs and flowers. Flavour of cocoa, sweetnes, brown sugar, spice ripe fruits and liqourice. Medium to full bodied. Roasty bitterness in the ned. Not the finest black beer from de molen, but still a very nice one.
