visionthing (4876) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 21, 2011
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours pitch black with nice light brown head. Black, heavy, malty and just excellent. Fruity aroma with chocolate and roasted malt. Very well balanced and pure enjoyment to drink.

Eructoblaster (3938) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle - 330ml. Opaque black body with a huge brown foamy head. Strong, complex malty/hoppy aroma with chocolate, oaky, and bourbon hints. Its robust taste carries fruity, woody, and vineous notes. Ends with a long, warming bittersweet finish. Awesome!

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Draught at Smoke and Barrel. Pitch black pour, dense ivory head. Nose and flavor are marked with heavy roasted malt, espresso, dark chocolate, and a surprisingly prevalent note of dark fruit in the form of raisin and fig. Awesome bitter roast on the palate. Just lovely.

EdKing (2433) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle in Euston Tap. Pours thin black and oily with nice thick light tan head. Nose is zingy green hops, lemon and lime, leafy hops then something like yeast extract or Marmite and finally notes of coffee. Taste is deep smooth roasted coffee, which is nicely balanced with milky creamy lactic notes. Very smooth yet packed full of flavours: coffee, very dark chocolate and a strong bitter hop finish. Great stuff. Totally overpowered a bottle of Nogne 0 Imperial Stout tasted afterwards!!

orangesol (987) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Served on-tap at Oreillys into a snifter. A - Pours deep dark brown with a creamy one finger tall tan head leaving light streaks of lace down the entire glass. S - Smells of rich bakers chocolate, subdued dark roasted malt, coffee, tobacco, and a pretty decent sized dose of hops. There is a good bit of booze as well. T - Starts off with a big dose of sweet chocolate slowly giving way to a mix of coffee, tobacco, caramel cream, hops, and the ever present dark roast. This one is pretty boozy, only getting stronger as it comes to room temperature. The finish is a mix of sweet chocolate and dark roast, lingering on the pallet for some time. M - Heavy body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Big, sweet, boozy feel throughout the glass. I am not sure why but this one was working for me. Maybe after all those roasty stouts this sweet one really hit the spot. O - I liked this one. De Molen makes some amazing beers and this may very well be one of them. I am glad I have a bottle of this one in the cellar already, cant wait to try it after some of this booze dies down.

wedgie9 (2652) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Tasted on 12/8/11 from a 330mL bottle obtained in a trade, brewed and bottled in late 2009, bottle number 922 of 1284. Pours a thick, viscous, and opaque dark brown with a huge tan head that slowly recedes to rocky lace. The nose is nutty roasted coffee and chicory bitterness, with lively, green resin hops, dark chocolate, overall, very darkly roasted. The flavor is a bit lighter up front, with milk chocolate and molasses, moving to the more roasted and bitter notes of dark chocolate, coffee, lively resin bitterness, and roasted nuts, along with a hint of cracked black pepper on the back of the palate. The body is full and oily, which is enhanced further by the lively, but very smooth carbonation, and a very long nutty dark chocolate, roasted black coffee, resin bitter, and black peppercorn finish.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - NOV 27, 2011
33cl bottle, 2010 vintage, bottle #201. Pours black, with a tan head, and visible sediment. Smells of roasted malts, fruit, and chocolate. Tastes of bitter-sweet fruits, alcohol, and roasted malts. Full-bodied, and extremely creamy, finishes with an astringent bitter-sweetness. An amazing imperial stout.
