Thanx Menno for letting us taste this one. kkearn (1221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2010
At De Molen at 1. BBF.
Comes in neat small bottles that just fitts the a glass. Fantastic to make heavy beers come in bottles like this. All numbered bottles - This one #1390/1560
The pout is black as the name topped with a impressive dark brown head. Perfect. The nose reminds me of Irish coffee - The alcohol notes blended with coffee, brown sugar and cream. Besides that there is som cinnamon, tobacco, bitter english laqurice and some pineapple(?).
The taste is dominated of chocolate and cacao flavours topped with some vanilla with a heavy alcohol-profile. Actually it takes off with some mild sour notes. Its round but somehow very uncomplex with the cacao as the all dominating father figure. The palate is full bodyed and thick with a tinckly feeling from the alcohol.
Finally entering some old notes... Plovmand (8635) - Grindsted, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2010
bottle #518 at Stockholm Beer and Whisky fest, September 2009. Pours deep brown with a bit of a reddish hue, taped with a small tan head. Aroma begins with roasted chocolate malt and coffee, with whiskey in the background and gradually becoming more apparent. Whisky notes, especially alcohol, dominate the palate; there is some chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, and oak in the background, but the barrel overwhelms the base beer.
Bottle. Pitch black with a small tan head. The aroma is chocolate, vanilla, oak, bourbon, light smoke, caramel and roasted malt. The flavour is intensely roasted, with notes of chocolate, vanilla, whisky and dark fruit. Bit boozy finish. Full bodied. cgarvieuk (26100) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2010

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Heavy malty aroma. Starts strong, intense malty, fiery, strong coffee notes. A bit earty. Hints of bitter chocolate. Finish well balanced, warming. Great Imperial Stout! Ungstrup (38597) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2010
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, roasted malt, soy sauce, and wood, leading to a dry roasted finish. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle at home. Pitch black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, port, whisky and some slight ashy notes. Flavor is ashy, very roasted bitter, some bready yeast, slightly sweet caramel malts and some tobacco. Complex and slightly harsh. Creamy texture, very full body and low carbonation. Decent brew.
