The beer appears dark brown with a thin, beige head. The aroma is absolutely fantastic. 40 year old cognac barrels...wow. Loving this. Roast and spirits with subtle notes of barrels. Simply fantastic beer. Phenomenal feel with alcohol content a non factor. What a treat. Highly recommended.

Bottle @ Monks Wallingatan. Dark brown colour with a small head. Sweet fruity aroma. Flavour of roasted chocolate. pushkinwow (2789) - Ottawa, CANADA - MAY 22, 2012
33cl bottle from Kamiel - one of the versions I was most looking forward to. Midnight brown with a mocha head that fades from a one finger cover to a light ring around the outside of the glass. Roasted sweet malts, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, bit of leather / smoke, some alcohol but I don’t have the palate to say that its cognac. Moderately high carbonation, full body, somewhat sweet with a hint of bitterness (reminds me of a slightly sweet but cold turkish coffee), silky and oily texture, alcohol becomes more present on the finish, along with the sweetness becoming dominant. Very tasty. Mortlach (2347) - Rome, ITALY - APR 20, 2012
20/04/2012 180ml bottle, shared by Matt (thanks 50belair!). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma color cappuccino, abbastanza abbondante e persistente. Aroma dolciastro, cioccolatoso, con note di cognac, molto etilico, una punta di caffè. In bocca è dolciastra, maltata, con sentori di cioccolato e finale amarognolo lungo. Corpo medio-pieno, consistenza oleosa, carbonazione soft. Molto buona, ma un po’ sgraziata. olsvammel (7220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2012
Sample at ÖÖWF 2011. It poured a pitch black liquid with a pale brown head. Smell and taste of chocolate, coffee, wood and whisky. Very nice and complex.

Mouthfeel is smooth, slightly creamy and full bodied. Finish is bitter and sweet with coffee, chocolate, wood, resin, vanilla and hints of cognac. claudepaulis (50) - , BELGIUM - APR 6, 2012
this beer is a typical Russian imperial stout. Taste it ... It is very good. De molten beers are very good kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - MAR 29, 2012
12oz-ish bottle courtesy of blomster. Thanks, Christer! Pours a deep, dark chocolate-brown color; modest light-brown head with decent retention. Roast-forward aroma, with bitter chocolate and hints of char alongside a light honeyed sweetness; cognac contribution very quiet. Medium-full body; light CO2; modest amounts of honeyed sweetness alongside generous roast, milk/dark chocolate, and very soft, lightly tannic barrel character; there’s also a light, piney hopping here that balances things quite nicely; a pervasive, solid bitterness with a fair amount of subtle hop flavor behind that core, malt-forward approach. Lasting dark/bitter chocolate, roast, and modest bitterness in the finish. gunnfryd (14872) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2012

Bottle, thanks to Leighton. It pours very dark brown, near black, with a moderate tan head. The nose is toasted coconut, chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, vanilla, wood and alcohol. The taste is chocolate, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, coconut, chewy malt, earth and chocolate digestive biscuit, with alcohol warmth in the finish. Full body and low-medium carbonation. Complex, yet very well balanced. Delicious!
