Pitch black with light brown thick foam head. The smell is breakfast like with coffee, bacon and roasted chocolate. The taste is a slow start, but scores with a round sweetness, a fruity notes (blackberries, cassis and stuff) and a smokey finish. The beer is very round balanced and too easy to drink regarding a two digit alcohol content. Very mild and less coffee than most of the other imperial stouts I had so far.

8.8.2014. Aroma of cacao and sth, floral or herbal. Taste is sweetish, still cacao, burnt sugar, roasted malts and that sth. Warming finish. Somehow a bit simple for the style.

So I finally get my hands on this one. Pitch black color with thick beige head and beautiful lacing. Dark malts and smoky bacon in the aroma. Rich taste of dark malts, dark fruits, milk chocolate (and a bit of dark chocolate as well), nuts (hazelnuts). Feels sweet, but not quite sweet at the same time. A rather subtle interpretation, but very very good.

Pours deep brown with thin. Brown head. Nose is roars and chocolate. Aromas are dark fruits and smokes, with sour notes. But aromas are overwhelmed by a weird salty note. Not convinced.

Bottle bought at Geers. After the horrible infected Rugbrød, this is a god's gift. Chocolate, hazlenut, little coffee, alcohol well hiden. Awesome. After H&V probably the best regular De Molen offers.
