Great beer. Wonderful looks, great aroma and superb taste. This beer tastes strong and fresh at the same time. Perfect alone and together with some meat.

Franckg (577) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2015
Bouteille "Cease & Desist", degustée après 13 mois. Robe noire opaque sans col de mousse, beaucoup de grumeaux en suspension au fond du verre. Pratiquement aucune effervescence, ce qui rend le liquide un peu flat. Arômes de baies confites, chocolat noir et anis. Très légère torréfaction mais le nez est surtout orienté vers le sucre. En bouche, encore sucré. Baies confites, raisins secs, anis. Une finale qui tend vers le chocolat et du café noir un peu dilué. Les saveurs de torréfaction et de bois qu’on retrouve souvent dans les RIS sont assez effacées ici. La texture est elle aussi légère et le corps est moyen. Très faible carbonation qui rend le liquide agréable et doux au palais.

thirstyrabbit (1484) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 15, 2015
Small bottle as "Rasputin". Dark chestnut brown body, small head. Sweet aroma with cocoa nibs, brown sugar and dried dates. Not getting Saaz here. BTW, why do they want to use Saaz in most of their beers? Do they not have access to other hops? Sweet taste with more dried dates, cherries and dark chocolate. Very fruity and plenty of cocoa in taste. A bit too sweet for me but if you like it this way the go ahead. I don’t know if Rasputin would have liked this drink - apparently he liked wine but they really needed to persuade him to try that sweet cake...

jawlo (188) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 10, 2015
Aromat: czkolada z likierem, kawa, paloność, wiśnie. Wygląd: czarna barwa, piana dość obfita, beżowa. Smak: słodycz w postaci czekolady z kawą, delikatne wiśnie, dość wysoka palona goryczka, na finiszu alkohol minimalnie grzeje w przełyku. Tekstura: piwo jest pełne, ale niestety nielikierowe, wysycenie umiarkowane. Ogólne wrażnie: bardzo dobry RIS, świetne aromaty i smak, jednak można by trochę dodać ciała w celu uzyskania jeszcze większej pełni. Na duży plus należy zaliczyć dobrze ukryty alkohol.

This beer looks and smells godly. A molasse smell sweet and pure. The taste is all that you wish for a stout. Theres a distant and perfect taste of molasse and white sugar. Cheers and enjoy!

Shark_Pants (477) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2015
Bottled 18 Dec 2014. Deep and dark with small beige head. Delicate aromas of licorice, dark chocolate, a little coffee. The taste is interesting - molasses, caramel, buttered popcorn (diacetyl), light coffee, dark chocolate, very lightly smoky. ABV really unnoticeable. Medium bodied, low carbonation, quite smooth.

colui72 (343) - HONG KONG - AUG 27, 2015
A February 2013 bottle. This guys can live til 25 and become tastier, but... I’m drinking it now! Black with no head and no carbonation, not even the "tssss" sound when I opened the bottle. Aroma is malty-chocolaty. Taste that wander from sweet molasses and Belgian chocolate, to wood, bourbon and some coffee. Medium-low bitterness, alcohol not really noticeable. A fantastic brew from De Molen (as usual).
