ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 25, 2006
Pours black with an enormous, creamy, tan head. Mostly lasting, nice lacing. The aroma is roasted, chocolates and molases with notes of sour fruits underneath. Lots of flavors going on in this one. Very roasted, fairly dry, some burnt notes, molases, licorice, green grapes, fairly acidic with lots of sour cherries and apples coming in late. The sour fruits become more pronounced as the beer warms. The finish is long, bitter and acidic. The mouthfeel is light, due mostly to the lively carbonation. The 9% ABV is well hidden. I could drink these all day. Absolutely world class stuff.

Ratman197 (14504) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle poured a nearly opaque brownish black with a LARGE lasting tan head. Aromas of yeast, bitter chocolate, a bit of licorice and hints of dark fruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of sour yeast, bitter chocolate, light licorice and a hint of espresso with a lingering sweet finish. Not a bad stout but it needs more body.

mephisto (1286) - TAIWAN - APR 19, 2006
huge brown head and dark brown. a stout? certainly doesnt smell like it. a whiff of sour yeasty aroma followed by note of chocolate. the flavor is stouty though, creamy and smooth. funny that the best offer from de dolle is a stout.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2006
Pours a dark black with a thick rocky head that thins a little bit and lasts the duration of the beer. Big whiff of alcohol burns my nose(wow),roasted malt and a touch of belgian yeast also noted. The taste is a mouthful of coffee, chocolate and alcohol with a big finish of bittering hops, a bit of sour is also detected and some spicy belgian yeast.Finishes quite dry. I wonder what a few years of cellaring could do for this?

Bottle into tulip glass, The Friday imperial stout tasting, summer 2005. Brown in the glass with a large and mostly lasting creamy tan head. Some floaties of something (yeast?). Brown sugar, caramel and banana smells. Brown sugar on the flavor too as the main malt sweetness; the chocolate flavors are slight, this is about more subtle malt tastes, like malted milk and a light caramel. Acid late in the swallow, dry alcohol finish, soft carbonation all the way through. Late in the finish the acid and roast emerge in a kind of tang. Really well-made beer. Wasnt an imperial, but it was a nice change of pace during the tasting.
