3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled March 2012. What makes De Molen brewed beers so foamy? This one filled two glasses with foam. Black, absolutely massive foamy brown head. Aroma is sweet stawberry, coffee, bourbon biscuit, leather. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is coffee, ash, burnt porridge, pine hop, twiggy. Very burnt flavour so that it’s really dry, sandy and almost tastes peated. Pretty unique. I’m really torn on this one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours black with a brown lacing. Aroma of hard roasted malts, a weird tart note as well, some hops as well, some grains, somehow fresh unprocessed malts, cocoa and some weak coffee. The taste has that same weird tartness to it along with some pretty bitter hops and hard roasted malts. Bitter coffee, cocoa beans and some grainy malts. A bit off - don’t know if there was something wrong with this bottle?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a pitch black with a small, short lasting, brown head. Aroma is a little odd. Lots of oatmeal, hard roasted malts, slight chocolate, very old hops. I think that the odd flavors comes from the oatmeal. It smells like it was almost sour or infected when it was put into the beer. Taste is very bitter or acrid up front with some sour stuff to it. Very roasty, but also some chocolate malts that reminds me of hot chocolate. Not explicitly infected, but something is slightly off here.. Hmm.. Medium carb and full body

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl.
Black with a very small tan head. Roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, all the familiar stout characteristics are very present. Taste is semi-sweet and mouthfeel is thick and creamy. Finish is very smooth and not very bitter but that could be because this was a bit old bottle (bottledate july 2013) so it got time to mellow. Very nice imperial stout.

Nice aroma on the pour and the nose, mainly chocolate. Good sized tan head which stayed the course. Bitter but typical for a strong stout. Overall a premium stout. Well done Netherlands.
