Pitch black with a big, fluffy tan head. Great head retention.
Sweet and almost citrussy. Touches of chocolate and alcohol. Plenty of hop character.
Sharply hoppy stout. There is a rich alcohol character sitting under the malt with chocolate and light roast following. Citrussy hops back it up. The fruitiness really works well.
Medium-full body with moderate carbonation. Really good.
A solid beer. Great flavour and all round performer.

Picked this up at the beer store at Brouwerij De Molen with a bottling date of 27 July 2011. Dark brown, nearly black pour with a two finger caramel colored head with decent retention and lacing. The nose is much sweeter than expected with not a lot of roast or chocolate, hints of caramel, toffee, and brown sugar. The taste follows suit. Way sweeter than the typical De Molen offerings with hints of vanilla, molasses, toasted malt, dark fruit, and a touch of coffee. The body is very thin and somewhat syrupy and cloying with minimal carbonation. Overall, the most disappointing offering I've ever had from De Molen. Very hard to drink due to the syrupy sweetness.

Pours a nice dark, deep brown with slight khaki lacing, which disappears quickly. There is very little carbonation. The nose is of coffee and wheat. The wheat reminds me of Fat Tire. The taste is slightly of coffee, mixed with a sour wheat taste. As I drink it, it is very thin, much thinner than I prefer for this style. As a RIS I find this beer lacking, as a dark wheat beer, it's not too bad.

Consumed January 27th 2014 from an 11.2 oz capped bottle labeled "13 /09/12". Beer label is Cease & Desist, not Disputin. Poured into a Klokke Roeland goblet.
The beer is much lighter than expected for a Russian Imperial Stout: more deep brown than the standard black. A 3 finger tan head sits atop the beer at first pour, but soon settles down to a mere thin skin of foam. No sheeting that sticks longer than a few moments.
Aroma is strange for an RIS, too; instead of the usual aromas, this has a bit of a metallic scent complemented by a sweet malt note. No sign of the usual coffee or chocolate.
Flavor has an unfortunate sour, metallic note. Some darkly roasted malt is apparent in the flavor; probably the chocolate malt. Somewhat acidic. Finish is slightly warming and moderately bitter. Did they use champagne yeast to ferment this?
A little bit thick (emphasis on little) and certainly warming in the mouth.
I have home brewed an Imperial Stout that was as good as this one and that is not bragging. Maybe the 16 month age was more than this brew could stand?

A: Dark brown with lots of mocha foam.
S: Roasted malt, coffee, brown sugar, sweet molasses and chocolate in the nose.
T: Dark chocolate, coffee, molasses and roasted malt.
M: Full bodied and smoothish.
O: Not as good as Hel & Verdoemenis, but a damn good example of the style.
Note: I don't think this beer is called Disputin any more. My bottle said Cease & Desist.
