Dark brown / black beer with a small beige head, oily body. Bottled in 2011. Smells like roasted malts. Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, caramel and dried fruits. Very good Imperial Stout and very drinkable, love it.

Fashawn (166) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 21, 2014
Imbottigliata il 27/02/2013 l, si presenta nero impenetrabile abbastanza ferma, con una schiuma impenetrabile destinata a scomparire velocemente lasciando il classico pizzo intorno al bicchiere. Presenta un aroma complesso ed abbastanza duraturo. Castagne e prugne, tanto cacao ed un po’ di liquirizia, e naturalmente caffè. In bocca subito note Du cacao in polvere , un po, di cioccolatini dolci ricoperti da polvere di cacao, qualche prugna e finale dove emerge il caffè. Una volta giù è bello il corpo che si avverte, ed il retrogusto ancora amarognolo del caffè che ora concede tocchi vanigliato, ora concede tratti di caldarroste e prugne. Il corpo come detto è buono ed al palato è oleosa, quasi piena. Si fa sorseggiare con calma. Splendido il ritorno retroolfattivo, mentre bevi gli odori sono veramente armoniosi. È una ottima imperial stout, de molen non ha una produzione sempre esemplare ma ho pescato il lotto giusto. Birra ottima specie per meditare.

Noire dense, collet epais de fines bulles mais fuyant. Aromes bien marque sur la torrefaction, gateau au chocolat, café, reglisse. Enveloppante et ronde, le malt torrefie marque bien sa présence. Amertume sur la finale lui donne une belle longueur. Hummmm encore

Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Bottled on 15. may 2009, opened on 7. november 2014. Brown to black beer, almost no head to speak of. Nose is caramel, wooden bitterness, dried fruit, raisins, roast, vanilla, touch of coffee and chocolate. The aging is apparent in the flavor, it’s smooth and blended, a touch oxidized, more woody bitterness, almost like peat, dried fruit, roast, chocolate, licorice. Flat carbonation, full bodied and syrupy.

brianza_ale (137) - ITALY - NOV 9, 2014
33cl teku. Pours a beige, dense and thick, quite very small head which slowly grew; darkest brown to black colour. Very nice roasted malt, cocoa, chocolate, bit dessert/vanilla aroma. Tastes quite much on the dark malts side rather than the hops, chocolate, roasted, bit spicy and yeasty, some coffee and licorice hints. You can’t almost distinguish the sweet / bitter notes, cause it’s well balanced and well "blended". The moderate sweetness suddenly changes into an almost "refreshing" mild bitter note. Medium bodied, slick texture, soft carbonation, not very persistent, leaves your palate clean and ready for the next sip. I was really astonished by the drinkability of this thing, especially considering the +10 %; not the most complex, but maybe one of the best Imp Stout I’ve ever had, smooth and balanced; a belgian style IS. Highly reccomended, I would also suggest this to ones who don’t normally like imp stouts

75cl bottle. Almost surely a spoiled bottle. Color is cola brown instead of black, non-existent head instead of the expected thick beige one. Aroma of roasted malts and red fruits with a strange vinous character character. Taste starts with similar flavors and a strange sour finish. Unlucky me.
