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.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2010
Tap @ De Molen. Pitch black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark beige almost brown head. The aroma of coffee with vanilla, sal ammoniac with chocolate. The taste of coffee, sal ammoniac and vanilla. It starts a little sweet, moving to dry bitter. Alcohol notes in the back. The aftertaste is gentle sweet with coffee bitter and notes of vanilla.

PotjeBier (2744) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2010
On tap @ De Wildeman. Black color with dense brown head. Strong cognac aroma, with some chocolate, roast/coffee, wood (oak), vanilla, alcohol. Taste is somewhat sweet & alcoholic, cognac. Finishes with a good combination of bitter, roast, ash/peat & wood. A bit too cognac-y for me, but still a good big beer of course.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 31, 2010
On tap at Jan’s Masters Division Celebration, 2nd August 2010. Near black with very little head. On the nose and in the mouth it is a wonderful blend of alcohol, oak, red wine, burnt caramel & Belgian yeast. The strength provides a firm but not fierce heat. Deserves to be savoured slowly. The pure expression of what an Imperial Stout should be.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2010 Had this one @ CBF 2010. Black colored brew. Wonderful brew! All kinds of smooth flavors balanced together in perfect harmony in both aroma and flavor. Very smooth malty tones, coffee, dark chocolate, vanille, some wood. All blended perfectly.

On draft at In de Wildeman. Opaque black, thick brown head. Aroma has a very strong malty backbone, coffee, chocolate, hint of blackcurrant. Very complex flavor, nutty, honey, hops, fruit, this is seriously complex. Extremely longlasting finish. For an Imperial Stout not very bitter, instead it’s rather at the sweet side, which is unconventional but works out very very well. May be the best Imperial Stout i know, absolutely outstanding.

Mortlach (1956) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 12, 2012
29/06/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al De Molen beer festival. Nera, densa, impenetrabile, con schiuma color cappuccino, liquida e poco persistente. L’aroma è di una intensità davvero fuori dal comune, con note di malti tostati, caffettose, di cioccolato, vaniglia, e alcol bene in evidenza. In bocca è potentissima, caffè, cenere, vaniglia, alcol, note legnose, devastante. Corpo pieno, carbonazione corretta. Imperial Stout sorprendente, di una intensità straordinaria, terribilmente strong.
