COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer that’s very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

fewa (41) - Beersel, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2011
On tap at the molen and in bottle. Color is dark black, with small brown head. Smell: Chocolate, dark fruits, soy sauce some hints of coffee and roasted malts Taste: quite complex, spicy, sweet chocolate and dark fruits, and in the aftertaste a great, extremely well balanced salty soy taste. Alcohol is very well hidden. Mouthfeel is very thick and creamy. The best beer from the Molen! Only stormaktsporter can beat this one

hirigalzkar (2364) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle. A quite agressive imperial stout (dark chocolate, licorice etc.) with lots of smoked, sausage kind of notes. The smokeiness is too heavy in my opinion and hides the other qualities of the beer.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 15, 2011

Tap (White Horse, Parson’s Green, London)
7 Massively meaty beef stock aroma.
4 Black, tan ring head.
8 Rich roasty coffee taste, gently bitter from burntness, but not astringent.
4+ Ludicrously full palate, slick and smooth. Just a gentle hint of carbonation.
17 Covers the alcohol well, but you can tell it’s a big beer.

[3249-20100802] Tap. Rich chocolate hints and coffee notes in the aroma with an underlying fruity roasted date. Black body with a medium-lasting creamy tan head. Toasted chocolate and roast coffee flavour has a long sweet chocolate liqueur aftertaste. Full body. Very tasty!
