ArtificialCyst (49) - Szczecin, POLAND - OCT 1, 2015
Aroma: Chocolate, coffee, roastiness, some hoppy sweet notes. Appearance: Black, head low, dense, not very durable. Taste: Coffee, roastiness, some chocolate, hoppy notes, alcohol warming. Palate: finish is coffee and alcohol, body is full, carbonation is low. Thought it will be mindblowing. It wasnt. Just a standard nice RIS.

Gluepot (192) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2015
The Dutch might not be able to make a good IPA, but De Molen has proven they can make an excellent imperial stout! Under a thick reddish head is a balanced and rich taste profile, including ripe dark berries, milk chocolate, mid-range coffee and earthy malts. Clean and non-acidic. Very well made IS.

KW92 (666) - WARSAW, POLAND - SEP 22, 2015

WYGLĄD: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, wysoka, trwała. Nieśmiało oblepia szkło.
AROMAT: Intensywny. Dominują: czekolada (praliny) oraz kawa. W tle nuty beczkowe, orzechy, karmel, alkohol.
SMAK: Z początku subtelnie słodowe (czekolada), by po chwili dochodzi alkohol, kawa oraz paloność. Doskonale zbalansowane. Przyjemnie rozgrzewa przełyk.
OGÓLNIE: Obawiałem się, że tylko data przydatności do spożycia mnie zaskoczy, ale na szczęście nie tylko ona. Bardzo dobry RIS.

Wonderful roasty, creamy, oaky, coffee-like cocoa aroma. Slightly boozy. Shiny black color with a virtually nonexistent light tan head. Flavor of dark fruit, oak, coffee, roast, some hops and dark chocolate. Similar to a Quad, but more roasty and hoppy. The roast is not overpowering on this big Imperial Stout, it tastes more creamy. The palate should be more substantial. It is slick and the carbonation is low, but I was wanting something thicker. This was a great Imperial Stout. Subdued where it needs to be, powerful where it needs to be. Very well done. I would drink this again. Just looked at the back of the bottle and saw that this one is over 2 years old. That shows how well this beer ages; now I have to try one fresh.

TtV (267) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Deep black colour, little syruppy, small beige head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate and alcohol. The taste is bittersweet at first. When the beer is longer in the mouth a dark chocolate flavour develops which turns into a very pleasant bitterness combined with a warm glow of alcohol that stays in the mouth and throat for a long time.

Pours black opaque with tiny unstable brown head, which immidiately transforms to a ring around the glass. Aroma with mild detectable alcohol, sweet notes of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, hints of tobacco, candy. Flavors: alcohol note is obvious, like bourbon, but perfectly balanced with sweet malts. There are also chocolate, mocha coffee, vanilla like flavors, with herbal, floral tones of hops. Malt sweetness is medium to high, hop bitterness is high. Finish is long lasting bitter dry. Body is sticky, carbonation is low. This one was bottled on 3th of october, 2014 and for may opoint of view, it was perfect balanced.
