oppear (112) - Tallinn, - JUN 16, 2013
Black and without a top. this smells good, sweet, roasty and lemon. The awkward nose promises things to come, so the taste, first up was lemon, then the smoke (being bitter and chocolate all the way). But what was disturbing was the grapefruit-celery note that hits after. The first part of this beer is good but the ending taste is weird, unpleasantly winds itself towards the end, but not totally unlikeable. The beer is also rather oily, complex and a mouthful. Good but difficult.

Rating #2329 -2016.02.11 - Bottle from CBI (Have had previous). Black as sin (indeed fitting) with a weak, bubbly tan foam. Aroma is earthy roast malt, cocoa bean, espresso Taste is mild bitterness, medium-heavy alcohol character, but well tempered with the luxurious cocoa sweetness. A fantastic beer.

pawos (15) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 16, 2017
Kolor czarny, piwo jest nieprzejrzyste z ładną kremową pianką. W aromacie bardzo mocna kawa i paloność, nieco gorzkiej czekolady. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie. Dominuje kawa i ciemna czekolada. Goryczka wysoka ale dobrze zbalansowana słodami. Czuć nieco alkoholu, ktry rozgrzewa gardło. Wysycenie niskie.

adasko (2042) - Poznan, POLAND - JAN 14, 2017
Coffee, roasted malts and a bit of chocolate in the aroma. Almost full bodied, quite thick and chewy, perfectly low carbonated. In taste its super dry, has no sweetness at all. Its all about roasted, toasted notes and tons of coffee. Massive roasted and coffee-ish bitterness in the back end. This beer is super agressive, super harsh but its doing it in a such a good way. Nice beer.

DonGregorio (118) - POLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle - 1,5 year old. Pitch black beer with small, lasting beige head. Aroma of coffee, milk chocolate, bitter chocolate with lighter hints of dark fruits - very encouraging. Taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter, cocoa, chocolate, strong bitter coffee and chocolate finish. Very dense, full bodied, oily, thick texture, soft carbonation. Alcohol hidden exceptionally well. Great coffee and chocolate, fantastic imperial stout.

vincentvega72 (505) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2016
Donkerzwart bier met mokkakleurige schuimkraag die redelijk snel wegebt. Aroma van noten, (gebrand) mout, heel licht rokerig. Smaken van (pure) chocolade, espresso, mout, leer. Diepe smaak met mooie licht bittere afdronk. Topbier van De Molen alweer.

Quite sweet and heavy, with aromas of roasted malts, coffee and especially coffee. More bitter and roasted flavors in the aftertaste. Very good.

Zeer mooie uitgebalanceerde stout. In de neus chocolade en koffie. Idem in de smaak. Maar met toevoeging van gebrande koffie bonen en granen. In de afdronk een fijne aarden en as smaak. Wat ik van een stout wil.
