2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Flat dark brown pour. No head, just a couple bubbles. No lacing. Big aroma of coffee. Thatís really about it, just roasted barley. Taste is a very bitter front with a tangy finish. A little more sour than anything besides Gueuze should be. Maybe it will age better?

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 Bottle. Small tan fizzy head, not very lasting. Very dark and opaque brown, close to black. Aroma is strong cocoa, roasted prune, raisin, very complex and rich. Taste is also cocoa, burnt caramel, liquorice and roasted malt. Full body. Burnt bitter and caffee aftertaste. A very good imperial stout.

Poured without almost any foam at all, and I got a bit worried, but when I smelled it I got my hopes up again. The aroma brings quite a big handful of those notes you expect from an imp. Dark and heavy smells from chocolate, coffee with that roasted punch. The taste is also up to par with the aroma, itís a bit thick in the mouth feel and smooth from what I guess is the oatmeal. Soft coffee roasts with a hint of charcoal. A pretty long medium bitter sensation sets in and lingers for quite a while. This is a really good oatmeal stout and I was really impressed.

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 itís really dry, sandy and almost tastes peated. Pretty unique. Iím 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 - donít 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
