4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Does this world need a 11% impy porter? No! So I will rid the world of this bottle. Very dark with some amber highlights. A tan head leaves sticky lacing. An earthy, cocoa aroma. Big rich very sweet malts are tasted. Just a little fruit under that and mild bitterness. Again, huge sweetness. A little dark fruit. This is like drinking a liquoer. So thick and smooth, velvety even. Brown sugar and cooca. This is not beer for someone on a diet! Despite the listed ABV I don’t taste it at all. Really sweet and fortunately I like sweet beers. Really good.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Ottima imperial Porter, come sempre quando si parla della De Molen. Sia al naso che in bocca sentori di caffè, caffé bruciato, cacao, un tocco di cioccolato, tanto liquoroso. Unica nota negativa, la trovo leggermente più acquosa rispetto alle altre del suo genere, e con bollicine quasi nulle. Per il resto, un capolavoro!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask. Pours black with a thin tan head subsiding average. Scent is old ale, emphasis grain over wood. Taste is light resin and a bit sour with nice grainy, yeasty and toffee body. Mouthfeel is amazing, soft like velvet. Finish is clean and a bit ethanol. Very great beer.
