COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OG 1108, FG 1026, Color 388.7 EBC, Chinook and Saaz hops. Bitterness 93.5 EBU.

Stronger version of a Baltic Porter. Comparable with an Imperial Stout but without the heavily roasted malt character. This created a soft beer with strong hops in the finish.

bottle pours deep dark murky brown with ruby edges. No head what so ever. Nose has nice debittered chocolate and slight roast. Taste pretty much follows in order with adequate bitterness and addition of licorice. Light notes of citrus on finish. Body is full, very light carbonation.

King_Alex_II (290) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 26, 2015
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.

nihtila (838) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
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.

SinH4 (545) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2015
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.

cagou007 (354) - FRANCE - MAR 13, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl. Clear dark brown with a very thin beige head. Aroma is mainly dark chocolate and some roasted malts. Taste is more alike chocolate than beer, but in a good way. Finish is bitter but without the mentioned hops.
