Great belgian styled imperial stout. Alcohol burns a bit too much, but otherwise it’s well balanced and tasty.

This beer suprised me as an imperial stout, the color was fairly light for the style, dark brown, light tan head. Flavor was also lacking the strong roast/chocolate that I would have expected. Mostly dried dark fruits, raisin, plum, nuts, bread, fig, and in the background there is some chocolate. Good beer, just not what I expected.

On tap at the local option : Pours a Dark brown with amber highlights. I admit I didn’t have any preconceived notions of what this brew was ahead of time, other than the nice rating and imperial stout categorization. Imagine my surprise to find a brew so heavy on the dark fruits here. I actually questioned whether I was poured the right brew for a moment. Aromas are biscuits, dark fruits - Flavors are interesting to be sure. I feel like the dark fruit elements dominate this brew for better or for worse - Combined with that are flavors of Biscuits, Vanilla, Figs, nice warming effect from the alcohol - I admit this proclaimed abv seems masked quite well - Malts are present here, with a bit of fruit esters as well at the end. Different than my expectations as an Imperial Stout, and different in general. Interesting - but it didnt quite do it for me, honestly.

Doften är inget som slĺr mig med häpna. En aning söt, kaffe, vanilj och möjligvis nĺgon krydda. Smaken har tydliga spĺr av lakrits, den har lite syrliga undertoner och enbart en svag hint av kaffe. Eftersmaken är lite nötig och len. En alt för snäll Imp. Stout.

Bottle labeled Disputin. Black pour that wasn’t too thick with a rather small head. The surprise for me came with the aroma and taste which had a lot of dark fruit, vanilla, and belgian yeast all mixed very well with a nice chocolate backbone. This beer has a ton of flavor that reminds me of belgian quads while still being an imperial stout. Awesome

UPDATED: OCT 31, 2010 Bottle. Aroma is sweet malts and dark fruit. Notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, and oak stand out. Palate is much lighter than I would have expected. Flavor really brings out the chocolate.

Very dark beer, large off white head. Nice aroma of chocolate, licorice, raisins. Hint of anise. Taste is similar, nice balance of bitter and sweet, but much more licorice, especially in the aftertaste: strong licorice in the front of the mouth. Not as good as De Molen’s other stouts and porters in my opinion, but still a fantastic beer.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 27, 2010
Ébenfekete színe van, aminek a mélyén valami egészen mély, vöröses csillogás van, hogyha egy erősebb fényforrás elé tartjuk. Vékony kis krémes és világosbarna hab fedi a tetejét, ami gyorsan eltűnik. Illata meglepően édeskés, áfonya likőrös, erdei bogyós gyümölcsös, egy kis nedves dohánnyal és pörkölt mandulával. Íze is édeskésen, gyümölcsszörpösen és égetett cukrosan kezdődik, aztán jön egy nagy adag maláta, keserű gyógyfüvek, borókabogyó, fekete csokoládé és kávébab. Vastag, nehéz és olajos teste van, a magas alkoholtartalom pedig nagyon szépen elvan rejtve, egyáltalán nem tolakodó. Utóíze mint egy édesebb fajta pipadohányé, keserédes, száraz és hosszan tartó. Fantasztikus és különleges egy sör, nem könnyű és nem a mindennapokra való, csakis különleges alkalmakra tudom elképzelni.

Very dark ruby color, small steady beige head. Roasted malty aroma, some chocolate, hints of tobacco. Very roasted malty flavor, smooth, mellow mouthfeel.
