33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a lot of sediment and a tan head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, liquorice, and dark fruits. Flavour is much like the aroma.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
zwart met bruine kraag
aroma van chocolade, koffie, caramout, gebrande mouten
redelijk tot zwaar zoet, behoorlijk bitter, zeer sterk, matige gefruit, sterk gemout
1e indruk; heerlijk aroma, sterke koffie tonen, zacht romig, koffie, chocolade, mouten (gebrand en geroosterd). Dit bier heeft de pech dat ik zojuist de pannepot heb geproefd, en deze was toch veel beter, maar niettemin is dit ook een prima bier !

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Two year old. The colour is pitch black with a light brown, medium head. Nice sweetish aroma of dark chocolate, oak, leather, roasted malt and some ash and port. Very compact and complex. Lots of roasted malt in the flavour as well along with more dark chocolate. Powerful and roasted. Nice oak in the end. Rich and sticky mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. Fantastically complex in every drop.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek in Vancouver. Pours deep dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of raisins/grapes, dark fruits, rum, and surprisingly little roasted anything. Taste is also dominated by these dark fruits, and is quite sweet; only slight roasty notes, and not many IBUs in the finish. Big and sticky body. Not what I espected from an "Imperial Porter", but delicious all the same.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Same problem as the guy below. Infected bottle.
Purchased online @ Saveur Biere.com
Off-notes (Vinegar? Rotten apple skin?) in both aroma and taste. You still can tell it is supposed to be a damn good brew - it pours very dark brown with diabolically red tint (just awesome!) and thereís a yummy cocoa note in the taste. But frigginí sourness ruins all the experience...
And, damn, yes, it is not the first time it happens with De Molen bottles (always with the generic, black capped ones).
Will be def. buying again. hoping for a better one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark black pour with velvety beige head, balsamic vinegar aroma, Iíve giving this an average score but this bottle was clearly infected itís happened too many times now, clearly this brewer makes great beer Iíve had them, but the QC is lacking.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pitch black with a dark brown fast fading head. Noses strongly of clear vanish, ethanol, alcohol with some light sweet toffee notes and roasted malt notes to it. The texture is rather slick going into oilyness. Full bodied tasting bitter with notions of sweetness to it. Heavy beer! With a nice well balanced slick finish, lasting for some times. Very pleasant after a steak!
