3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl flaske, 10,4 %, på Hugo's Kælder, 25. juli 2013.
Kaffearoma, men ikke kraftig. Lakridsnoter.
Fuldstændig blød i munden med perfekt balanceret kulsyreindhold. Smagsindtryk af porter, engelsk lakrids og kaffe. Iøvrigt serveret til temperaturmæssig perfektion. Næsten ingen sødme, derfor velindrettet til porter-fans.

Bottle from Cornelius. Dark dark brown. Thin tan head dissipates quickly. Woody dusky nose with bitter chocolate. Taste has sour notes, no caramel or sweetness. Hides alcohol well. Not quite as startling as I expected - perhaps a little young?

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Csak a Jó Sör. Chocolatey roasty aroma with not a hint of alcohol. Light toffee and just a note of coffee. Light light basement aromas. Hazy dark brown colour. Taste has some sharp alcoholic burn. Very restrained roasted flavours, seems thin bodied. Not sure what to think here, but it might just be the weakest piece I had from de Molen.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2014 March 2012 bottle consumed in April 2014. Interesting stout. Bottle at kawa Calgary. Very much on the dried fruit Belgian side of things. Looks like a stout. And tastes like a Belgian strong ale. Malty sweet bready fruit prunes slight roast but mostly fruit. Interesting.

Aroma: chocolate, roasted malts, dark ripe fruits. Appearance: black, very small beige head.Taste: medium to heavy sweet. Palate: roasted flavours coming up just after the initial sweetness, dark fruits again, toasted malts. Overall: very nice Imperial Stout, ranking among the best I’ve had. Bottle from Beer Hawk, England.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Jean-Michael, thanks! Pours a dark brown with a low head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of rich malt, roasted but primarily sweet and loaded with caramel impressions. Taste is a little saline (JM pointed that first but I can only agree), strange but enjoyable to me. Other tastes and flavors include caramel, chocolate and roasted coffee. Alcohol is really well hidden and it isn’t too sweet, eminently drinkable. Mouthfeel was silky smooth. Really fun and nice! Not sure what explains the mineral/salty component but it brought something nice and different to the table.

Loads of dusty dark, sweet chocolate on the aroma, the taste is not as sweet as you would expect, given aroma and abv. The finish has a good bitter/ stout kick. Very clever beer.

bottle shared by jean-michaël, thanks dude. pours unclear dark brown with a small light beige showing some retention and lacing. burnt caramel, some red fruitiness, slightly garbagy and nail polishy, earthy and piney, other minerals and coffee. moderate carbonation, medium body - oily, moderate sweetness, warming alcohol, slightly harsh assertive spicy-piney-earthy finish. ok.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
bevuta alla spina all’elfo..si presenta scura e con una schiuma marrone chiaro molto spessa e persistente..aroma tipico ma non eccessivamente forte,direi delicato..caffè,malto tostato e liquirizia molto bilanciati..il gusto è incredibile..apparte i sapori in se che bene o male sono abbastanza tipici dello stile, ciò che mi ha colpito di più è il palato..è davvero estremamente corposa e vellutata..ogni sorso ti riempie la bocca e scende giù con un piacere disarmante (non dimentichiamo che è una imperial stout da 10,7 gradi che dovrebbe essere tutt’altro che facilmente bevibile) ottima davvero.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle aged 2 years in the cellar. Too bright, dubbel-like (brown) color, beige head, that vanishes very quickly. Aroma of milk chocolate, some vinous notes, dried fruits, licorice. alcohol is noticeable, so the beer smells like liqueur pralines. Taste:, chocolate, coffee, licorice, raisin. full body, smooth, thick texture, sweet, lack of bitterness. Overall: nice, tasty beer.
