Cette grosse Imperial Stout de chez les Hollandais de De Molen est dja une tuerie en version normale, mais la, comme a suffisait pas, les gars ont eu lide de faire vieillir cette bire dans des futs ou avaient vielli ce bon vieux Bruichladdich, whisky single malt de lile dIslay,en Ecosse.. Bon, ce que jaime chez De Molen, cest que tu te fait dja pas arnaquer sur la quantit, la bouteille est remplie Ras-la-gueule, meme le dernier anneau ou vient se poser la capsule est rempli..Au service , ben pas une once de mousse, rien, nada, que dalle...on peux craindre linfection....la couleur cest noir ,bien noir ;ha oui, ce que jai oubli de dire cest quen dcapsulant ,on a une douce odeur de Whisky qui vient vous titiller les naseaux.. en plongeant le nez ca se confirme, pas de doute pour le Whisky,mais aussi caf, vanille,ca sent le fum aussi...vite, en bouche... Jai pas parl des bulles parceque jen ai pas vu jusque la ..et en bouche ca se confirme, aucune carbonation..Infection?? non je ne crois pas, il y a pas cette acidit caractristique, ou alors cest la meilleure bire infecte que jai pu boire jusquici!!si on peut encore parler de bire..pas de mousse, pas de bulle..Enfin, quoique ce soit,au fond men fout,cest norme, Whisky, puis fum, vanille, caf..dit comme a ca pourrait filer la gerbe, mais non cest magnifiquement quilibr, doux,la fin de bouche est comme celle dun bon single malt,a tombe bien,les 12 sont invisibles, la bouteille et le verre bien rempli,haaaaa senfoncer tranquille dans le fauteuil,et prendre le temps de senvoyer ce truc..

Flavor follows, light sweet, medium bitter, lots of anise, some peat and burned malts. Medium body, zero carbonation. Lingering bitterness. Not really my thing.
