Beersiveknown (5110) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 27, 2016
bottle at home as part of an EU local swap a few years ago, possibly from Benzai - should have made a note sorry!
dark ruby brown with beige lacing. rich mocha like cocoa notes with a hint of chili sharpness in behind, fig and molasses. Full bodied, no carbonation, rather sweet, slightly tart red berries and perhaps a hint of chili smoke in the finish. a touch of saltiness, cocoa, quite savoury at times, but finishes very sweet - overwhelmingly so unfortuantely. a bit more chili or carbonation could cut through it and make a special beer but as it is its a bit of a mess

Macegan75 (827) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Bottle from State Line dated 09-Jan-2015. Pours black with tan to brown head that leaves minimal lace. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted chichory, mild peppers, black malt. Taste is similar with a bit of coffee, the peppers are perfectly subtle, and nice mouth feel. Finish is chocolate, and mild coffee.

slowrunner77 (10750) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 16, 2016
Great look and feel. Initial aroma is great too...smoke and heavy roast, bitter chocolate, light chili. Flavor and eventually the nose (as it warms) are a little over the top. Almost charred, briney...pepper flavor is there but little spice. Still quite pleasant if flawed.

darbeer75 (702) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Aroma: lots of roastiness and chocolate; Appearance: pitch black with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: sweet and malty with some booziness; smooth and chocolatey; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: a little too sweet for my taste, but still a nice imperial stout.

mclaren14 (237) - d, POLAND - NOV 26, 2016
Aromat: wiśnie i drogi alkohol na pierwszym planie, dalej kawa, ciemne słody i czekolada, aromat gładki, głęboki i szlachetny Wygląd: barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste, piana kawowa, zbita, drobnobańkowa, bardzo trwała, pięknie zdobiąca szkło Smak: słony, nawet dość wyraźnie, słodki z wyraźną palonością, ktra delikatnie ociera się o popiołowość, alkohol dobrze zamaskowany, choć daje o sobie znać, ujawnia się w nutach drogich alkoholi (sherry, bourbon - muszę nad tym popracować...), wanilia ktrą pźniej udaje się uchwycić rwnież w aromacie, finisz czekoladowo-kawowy, goryczka niska w kierunku średniej - kawowa Podniebienie: gęste, kremowe, pełne, wyklejające, nagazowanie niskie, olbrzymia pijalność, alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa gardło Podsumowanie: ciekawe co by było gdyby dodatki były bardziej wyczuwalne, fakt podstawa wyśmienita, ale żeby doszukać się chili, albo kakao, trzeba było się mocno natrudzić. Sl? Ciemne piwa lubią twardą wodę, ktra daje podobne wrażenie... Niemniej jednak podstawa jest znakomita i to bezapelacyjnie, znają się w De Molenie na swojej robocie
