Holmen1 (6471) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2012
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff: helt sort, og med flott beige skum. Herlig aroma av vanilje og brent karamell, Egiil sier også snev av granskudd. En herlig og velbalansert imp.stout med masser av ettersmak. Fantastisk bra.

Holmen2 (4034) - NORWAY - SEP 3, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Black in colour, dark beige head. Wonderful aroma of sweet vanilla, dark chocolate, burnt caramel and spruce. Superb and well balanced taste. Dark caramel, pine and some bitterness. Lingering bitter aftertaste with juniper hints of cigar box.

750ml corked, caged & waxed from 2009. Cork pulls with a dull thud, oh boy. Pours thick, oily and black with no head. Aroma is actually quite good, lots of fudgey brownies, ash, vanilla, coffee and some alcohol. Flavor is ok but the complete lack of carbonation leaves this flabby and dull, mostly chocolate fudge and some bitter roasted coffee. Mouth feel sucks due to no carbonation, thick, oily and sludgy. Damn, this would have been a great beer if there was even mild carbonation. I’d give this another shot on tap maybe.

Picked up at Belmont Station, PDX. Only place I can really seem to find De Molen (and much else) on the West Coast. Jet black pour with that oh so sexy dark tannish red head that just screams "THIS IS GOING TO TASTE INCREDIBLE". Another incredible black as knight Impy Stout from these guys. Thick, malty, dark chocolately, hints of roasty coffee, and touches on toffee sweetness as well. Still think sours are my fav, but goddamn do I love a good Impy Stout. Could drink this all day. Fantastic.

Iphonephan (7283) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Poured from a 33 cl bottle into a goblet. Aged 14 months. Dark, dark pour with a quickly dissipating head. Distinct and lovely aroma of burnt malts. Coffee and mocha in the taste. Mild hop bitterness. A really fine beer.

callmemickey (4561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Tap. Black body. Medium sized khaki head. A smattering of lacing. Rich chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar. flavor is similar with a deep roasted chocolaty presence dominating. Deep and layered. Wave after wave of flavor hits. Lighter end of full bodied. Lively carbonation. Roasted lingering finish.

piscator34 (2647) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are a combination of plums, ink, and a bit of dark chocolate. Takes a bit of a left turn (for the better) in the mouth, with fantastic Asian coffee, and chocolate chip cookie dough taking over. Medium bodied. Well done.

4.2
ThreeCats (1002) - ISRAEL - AUG 20, 2012
Dark tan foamy head over opaque body. Aroma of roast and dark chocolate, coffee and toffee. Taste and palate continue aroma. Heavy, but quite drinkable

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2012
11.2oz bottle, thanks to b3shine for suggesting I pick this up. Bottled 2/29/12. Black but not opaque color. Minimal khaki head. Some spray of dots of lace. Very nice big hearty body. Chewy texture. Light carbonation. Awesome super-roasty aroma. Dark chocolate. Big bitter taste. Awesome, long roasty aftertaste. Roasty is the primary flavor I’m getting here, but it’s a fantastic, epic roastiness. This is what I’ll be drinking if I ever find myself in the Netherlands. Bittering hops complement the massive roasty aroma very nicely
