kryon (3084) - Hsselby, - DEC 27, 2012
Pours black with medium frothy off white almost brown head. Nice! Aromas of coffee beans, dark fruits (blueberries and raspberries?), roasted malts, some undefined but yet very nice sour tones as well. Creamy, medium bitter, medium to full bodied. Nice loong coffee bitter finish. Mmm, very nice tones of coffee, sweet tones of dark fruits, might be some chocolate in taste as well. A very well balanced Imperial Porter. Wow!

Derbeth (816) - Krakw, POLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle, batch from 27.10.2016. Nice brown head, decent lacing. Quite much alcohol, also roasted malt. Lacks complexity. Full body. Not very interesting.

En fin porter. Ikke meget humle I men god dyb smag og en smule alkohol i den fra whisky.

shrubber85 (11024) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 27, 2017
Bottle. Chocolate fudge, coffee, malt, and hay aroma. Black with minimal head. Very sweet chocolate malt, yeast, and moderately bitter hay flavor. Good body. Okay - pretty straight forward.

ulrikolsen (566) - DENMARK - JAN 22, 2017
Tap. Pours black with small fading tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, smoked, complex with tar and coffee notes. Taste is roasted and complex with smoke and liquorice and coffee hints. That classic de Molen balance is just right! Finish has lots of aftertaste and is complex and moderately bitter.

Dzoshu (195) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 22, 2017
Kolor: Czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana: Nie chce się tworzyć, wymuszona opada do zera. Zapach: Mid, smażony ser, sos sojowy, piwnica. Smak: Umiarkowanie słodkie, dość płaskie. Mid, czekolada, lukrecja. Goryczka średnio intensywna, palona. Wysycenie: Niskie, OK. Opakowanie: Klasyczna etykieta, niedokładny skład. Uwagi: Warka 17.11.2014 (do 2039) Smaczne ale nie zachwyca. Kojarzy mi się z barleywine z tego browaru przez charakterystyczną nutkę smażonego sera ktra tam też się pojawiała. Ani to RIS ani Bałtyk.

Roasted notes, meat, leather, practically black with a thin tan head not very persistant, medium/full body, flat, smoked notes, dark fruits and roasted malts...very good this time for de Molen.
