slowrunner77 (3843) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 1, 2014
"currently named Disputin thanks to North Coast: very sweet aroma...dark fruit, tar, molasses, licorice. a little too sweet for me, but it’s flavor is better. lots of the same things, but not so in your face. pretty smooth for 11%, but you can tell the alcohol is there. i liked it, but for the price their are more enjoyable impy’s out there. 7/11 now called Cease and Desist. Pretty funny if you ask me, but as far as the beer goes...what the hell? pours dark brown (was pitch black last time) and is thinner. none of the extreme aspects of last time. is the consistency an issue at de molen. if it weren’t on the label i wouldn’t beleive this was the same beer. old score 38, new score 3.4...avg 3.6.

Foffern (1248) - Bodř, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle at home. 3 years old. Pours a deep, reddish brown colour with a big, soapy, beige head. Has a malty aroma with rye bread, roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, some alcohol and sweet undertones. The flavour is surprisingly sweet at first with lots of chocolate. In the end it’s more roasted with coffee beans and ash. Silky mouth feel, and has a light to medium bitterness. A compact and very nice imperial stout. Pretty sweet actually.

adster (400) - HUNGARY - SEP 20, 2014
Mélybarna színű, leginkább élesztős sajátosságokkal bíró főzet mind illatában, mind ízében. A maláta uralmától összeroskadó imperial stout-jellegzetességeket ez esetben hiába is keressük, ez a sör ugyanis lágy haromóniában olvad össze az alkotóelemek mindegyikével, kezdve a belga stílusú élesztő fanyar, édeskés hangulatától a mazsolás ízjegyekig, melyek teljességgel behálozzák a főzetet. Karakteres főzet, annak ellenére, hogy sem az alkohol, sem a maláta testessége nem mértéktelen, így az egyik legkiegyensúlyozottabb imperial stout, amit valaha kóstoltam...

darrennelson12 (414) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
In bottle dated 03/28/14; absolutely no head when poured. Aroma of candied fruit and some coffee. Taste was a little syrupy and sweet, with a finish of dry cocoa. Overall an OK beer, but De Molen has better options ...

Wrocław IVFDP: Piana: Brązowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, delikatna, niezbyt obfita. Kolor: Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Pod światło pod koniec picia brązowe refleksy. Zapach: Dużo paloności i czekolady. Nuty kawowe, wędzone śliwki, rodzynki. Intensywny. Spod tego wyłazi wanilia, melainodyny w typie ciemnego chleba. Smak: Bardzo palone, intensywnie słodkie, chlebowe. Likier czekoladowy, czekolada z kawą. Tekstura: Gęste, bardzo duże ciało, wyklejające palonością, lepkie. Nasycenie: Niskie. Goryczka: Wysoka z komponentą paloną. Pijalność: Średnia. Rasputin zrobił na mnie wrażenie swoją mocą i intensywnością. Pomimo tak wysokiej zawartości alkoholu, jest on praktycznie niewyczuwalny. Bardzo konkretne i intensywne piwo degustacyjne.

Bottle, labelled 03/28/14. Pours very dark brown with small light brown head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is toasted malt, caramelized sugar, toffee. Flavor is sweet up front, caramelized sugar, toffee, fading into a toasted, caramel, roasted malt finish. Toffee, roasted, and mildly bitter finish. Sweet, fruity alcohol as it warms, plum, quite palatable considering abv. Soft carbonation, medium-full body, and very smooth texture, lightly dry finish.

vanelst (152) - AUSTRIA - AUG 31, 2014
Nice enough Imperial Stout. Coffee, chocolate, caramel, brandy and vanilla. Not too sweet, not too bitter. Liked it better with every new sip. Started humming the Boney M song with the same name in the end. All good.
