Ons Blackie is heel erg stout. Een gitzwarte Russian Imperial Stout met maar liefst tien verschillende moutsoorten, waaronder haver, rogge en tarwe.

33 cl from Benzai. Merci René. Fine mousse sur liquide noir. Nez de terre et de cerises avec malts rôtis, champignons et chocolat. Saveurs qui vont dans le même sens. C’est impérial porter avant d’être impérial stout. Enfin, il me semble. Corps crémeux et mi-tempo des bulles. Finale plutôt robuste qui me ramène au style. Appréciable.

Un « heel erg stout » avec 10 sortes de malt, dont de l’avoine, du seigle et du blé … Niveau abv de 9 %. Mon exemplaire avait un an et 2 mois d’embouteillage. Couleur brun noir, à l’opacité assez forte. Mousse brun clair, bien crémeuse, stable à 2 mm. Arômes de chocolat, ganache, café fin, viennois, bavarois au moka. Très beau nez. 1ère bouche douce à veloutée à la magnifique entame sur café/malt torréfié. Arrière-bouche forte, mais très équilibrée et longue. 2ème au grand ensemble malt torréfié/levure, avec un côté vineux. Arrière-bouche vraiment classe, très dégagée, sur un brûlis très fin. 3ème avec de la suavité, de la délicatesse, mais aussi une très grande présence. Arrière-bouche longue, complexe, super jolie, avec un peu de whisky boisé. Longueur avec de grands retours sur le 1er nez, ganache, bavarois. Jambes fines, marquées. Levure boisée, vineuse, grande ligne. Alcool très bien, progressif, et très efficace. Finale avec encore des saveurs à trouver, du fût, des herbes. CONCLUSION : très grande bière, structurée, engagée, précise, sans aucune faute et avec beaucoup de créativité. En style, c’est plutôt un impérial porter qu’un stout … d’où les faibles cotes de style sur ratebeer, mais que tout ceci est peu de chose par rapport aux saveurs grandioses !!

My first van Moll beer - finally. Fairly thick, creamy, faint pinkish light beige head with medium lacing captured after slow gushing and sitting on top of a hazy, very dark mahogany coloured beer with black ’soul’. Aroma of baker’s chocolate, coffee grounds, a lot of cured meat and even a hint of smoked bacon, dried porcino, cigar ashes, wet leather, quite heavy bayleaf, burnt wood, dried berries, parsley, candied cherries or even ’cuberdons’, earthy turnip, salmiak, mocha ice cream, dates, faint hint of balsamico, cloves. Fruity onset, blackberry and soft passion fruit sourishness paired with restrained sweetish hints of dried banana, candied cherry and candied red apple, medium umami flavours of dried mushroom, soft but effectively tingling carbo. Maltiness kicks off quite lightly but gets heavier as the liquid travels over the tongue, gaining more and more depth and becoming deeply nutty and bitterly chocolatey with light yeasty notes on top, coffeeish roasted bitterness towards the end but not overly so, rich and quite complex with a finish of ongoing deep black chocolate maltiness with a toasted edge, bittersweet but more leaning towards the bitterish side, paired with quite a firm dosis of peppery and spicy hop bitterishness and warming, glowing, brandyish alcohol going deep down; last impression after swallowing remains quite complex, combining ashy roasted bitterness with candied cherry sweetness and warm alcohol which does not become astringent anywhere. Juicy and tasty RIS, but lacking a bit in body and ’viscosity’ and could be somewhat less ’vegetable’-like in the nose; still, quite ’clean’, not too overly ’Belgian yeasty’ and rich enough to pass as a decent example of the style, much like the contemporary English ones made by Siren, Partizan and the like. The alcohol warmth is perhaps a tad too obvious, but the malts and the hops are well-placed and this clearly is an ambitious and bold example of the style, not lacking in character at all. Enjoyed it, but then there are so many more impressive imperial stouts out there nowadays...

tricksta_p (2665) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, some liquorice, hint of ash, coffee notes. Flavour is moderate sweet with a nice moderate to medium roasty bitter finish. Body is medium, a bit creamy and quite smooth. Very easily drinkable considering the ABV. Smooth and tasty Stout, I’d love to drink more of this.
