Leighton (20789) - London, Greater London, - JUN 11, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruces in London - many thanks to Jack! Pours almost clear black-brown with a creamy mocha head. Nose has a lot of coffee, baking cocoa, burnt toast. Medium to big sweet flavor, grapes, dark berries, a bit of coffee, fine earth, cocoa. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Seems a bit thin compared to other De Molen impy stouts. Warming finish, some mocha, mild bitterness, dark bread, dark fruits. Decent.

Sigmund (7288) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. Black colour, minimal tan head. Strong aroma of coffee and molasses, also vanilla and bourbon whiskey. Coffee and bourbon in the flavour too, but not as sweet as I expected. Some sourish berry notes, and the mouthfeel is not quite as rich and thick as expected from a 12.6% IS. Still a good beer.
