0.33l bottle from trade with MrHangover. Thanks man! A quite over-filled bottle that pours a deep brown body with a over-gigantic layering and lacing chocolate-colored fluffy head. Takes quite a while for it to calm down as well, but when it has, I get a good dash of chocolate, roasted malts and some ice cream in the aroma. Also tones of some green apples, nail polish remover, wood and a little bit of wet cardboard. The flavor is at first a bit yeasty with more green apples, but then it switches over in to this roasted and bitter killing machine! Heavy heavy roasted with a really big bitterness, I also get black chocolate with a suiting warming almost nail polish boozy finish before the chocolate malty aftertaste takes over. At first I feared this might be a bad bottle or something, but it quickly redeemed itself for being a fine imp stout. 07.07.2012

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from De Molen Brewery Shop, Bodegraven, Holland, consumed inside ?Frank? (camper) at Camping Het Rieven, Landsmeer, Nr Amsterdam, Tuesday 2nd October 2012 Pours really black with a huge lava like flowing tan head, in fact the head is foamy & immense. This is a stunning stout, it’s rich with heap’s of coffee, chocolate and cinder toffee. Thick in the mouth, smooth, glorious. This for me is as good as any of the big stouts at Borefts in fact it is better than any I tried, superb. I understand that this was brewed at De Molen by a group of experienced home brew enthusiasts under the tutorage of De Molens Head Brewer (Menno?) well done to all concerned. Fantanstic beer, now why didn’t I buy more of these? A8 A5 T9 P4 Ov17 4.3
