Boiled for 20 hours to create an umami flavour. Umami is the fifth basic taste next to sweet, sour, salty and bitter. By doing so we have now a beer thats very thick and oily with loads of roasted malts.

Cask at FONEFAN in Masters Division Celebration, The White Horse, Parsons Green, London. Brown. Aroma of warm wood floors and paneled rooms (haddonsman); bretty chocolate (harrisoni); sweet leather armchair taste (hughie); some dryness. Yes, I very occasionally lick my leather armchairs when I am in my cups.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - JUL 3, 2010
Sampled at DE Beerfestival 2010, TAP1. Pours a pitch black beer with a chocolate head, nice lacing. The aroma is roasted, chocolate and licorice. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is fat and bold with some alcoholburn. Overall a nice and bold beer, but with a high alcohollevel.

6oz bottle drank from a CCB snifter. Thanks? to tpd. When it takes at least 10 ba/rb to finish this beer you know there are problems... A dark brown pour, oil viscosity, no carbonation at all, very dark... The aroma is a touch hot, lots of chocolate and chemicals, not good but doesnt show the atrocity to come... The taste at first is just a hot stout showing chocolate, the finish is horrendous. TONS of chemical tar, shows notes of chemicals and tar, this is just bad. No one could drink more than once. This is a De Molen MISS. Dont bother, even for the tick.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2011
De molen ziel and zaligheid. 20cl bottle acquired via trade. One bottle out of 96... Pours deeper and thicker than the wild turkey h&v with a more intense blackness and barely less intense reddish brown edge. An aggressive swirl yields a thin flimsy swirl of a deeper tan head, barely considered head as a matter of fact... Aroma of ink and and an unexpected smokiness, a little sulphur and intense bittersweet dark chocolate... Flavors are intense and assertive with ink and a peated smokiness upfront. Thick and charry with deep bittersweet dark chocolate and a roasted feel to it. Full bodied. Almost islay whiskeylike in nature. Finish gets a little inky. 7/4/8/4/15

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2011
bottle brewed 11 april 09 at daks on 8/14/10. orange-yellowy tinted brownish black with no head. wow! the aroma!... meaty/jerky, yeast, ash, roast, chocolate, wood, rubber, smoke, black olives and tangy barbecue sauce. the flavor is a lot alike.... ashy charcoal, umami and vanilla mix in there as well as a tartness on the finish. the aftertaste lingers as chocolate covered briquettes. it is a touch on the sweet side but the ash and alcohol really help keep the slickness in the medium body in check. 9/4/9/4/18+

Flaske: Kulsort l med et meget lille skumhoved. Heldigvis er der lidt karbonering. Smagen kunne vre helt i top, med en del rgmalt der kunne spille perfekt med brndtheden og chokoladen. Men desvrre fungerer det ikke optimalt. Smagen og duften er en lille smule off. Desvrre.

Bottle. A quite agressive imperial stout (dark chocolate, licorice etc.) with lots of smoked, sausage kind of notes. The smokeiness is too heavy in my opinion and hides the other qualities of the beer.
