Bottle that I picked up from De Molen brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands in June consumed at Fairports Cropredy Convention Annual Reunion 14.08.10 This is very black in colour if anything can be very black, in fact just black is probably descriptive enough, its black! Dense looking Imperial Stout with a beige head. The aroma is wonderful, wafts of vanilla, coffee and baileys. This is sticky in the mouth but marvellous, wonderful sensual feel as it coats the inside of the mouth. Some booziness from the bourbon ageing and there is a bit of wet wood and chocolate. Lovely.

Bottled, thanks caesar. Opaque black, almost no head. Chocolate malts and lactic notes in aroma. Enormously complex flavor, strong development in every sip. Malts, very woody, coffee, liquorice. Very good. madsberg (11776) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2010

Apperance: Darkish brown with a , wee, beige head.
Aroma: Bourbon, Caramel, Roasted malts, Hint of overripe fruit.
Taste: Liqorice, Vanilla, Chocolate, Dark caramel, Portwine and a hint of alcohol.
Palate: Velvety smooth with an edge of bitterness and alcohol. Low carbonation.
This is a fine stout from Herr Menno. Very smooth and highly drinkable. I would wish for a little more residual sweetness and a wee bit more body but other than that this is superb. Impressive.
