Slovenia

4.49/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Look: Syrupy pour with delicious, creamy, average size, dark mocha head. Has good retention, bubbles popping away slowly, creates a creamy, thick top layer, which leaves very fine lacing. Some carbonation visible on the side of the glass. Dark, dark brown, can't see through. Some yeast bodies sediment to the bottom. Everything as it should be.

Smell: Roasted coffee with caramel and dark chocolate up front. Also some milk chocolate with dried plums, nuts and vanilla. A bit of freshness from sour dark berries, dark fruit. It's sweet, fat, creamy, stuffy, you can feel those 24 Plato degrees that went into this beast. Couldn't stop smelling it - rich, as soon as you find one note, another one comes along.

Taste: Medium (to high) sweetness, starts with mostly caramel and some burned sugar, milk chocolate with light berry sourness (makes it fresher and juicier), dry plums. Then it transfers into dominant roasted coffee with some dark chocolate. Roasted coffee driven medium to high bitterness with a tiny bit of alcohol finish the ride. Some soft chocolaty notes come out deep in the after-taste.

Mouthfeel: Full body, creamy almost syrupy. A very faint hint of alcohol warmth. A big, fat beast.

Overall: It's quite a beer. A fat one, full of darker malt wonders. Good play of flavours and balanced but still relatively demanding - not for your everyday, but well worth your time, when you have that fat stout urge.

Hell and Damnation in a bottle, from 19 oktober 2010.

Looks very dark brown, with a tan brown head, that is very resilient.
Smell and taste of big coffee, cocoa roasted malts. Tobacco, caramel, some vanilla, ash.
It's an explosion of flavour, long lasting in the aftertaste, making this a tough beer. It's very bitter from hops, next to the heavy malts, making it very chewy.

Very wild character, makes this a recommended experience.

On tap at Local Option in Chicago. Poured into a goblet.

A: Black with a touch of light coming through at the edges. One finger tan head. With alright retention and minimal lacing.

S: Wow! Huge chocolate and roastiness. Not much else but definitely doesn't need it.

T: Huge chocolate. On par with Southern Tier's Choklat. But way different. Big roastiness. Very amazing.

M: Full body. Super creamy. Medium carbonation. Did I mention creamy?

O: Amazing. Love it. One of the top non barrel aged imperial Stouts.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

sampled on tap at hopcat as part of the 3rd annual extreme beer fest, jan 22/2011.

pours stark and opaque black with a very dense cap of light brown head. the head drops fairly fast wtih a sheet of lace.

aroma is great. super rich dark chocolate. bit of milk chocolate. espresso. dark fruit - date, raisin, fig. toasted whole wheat bread. biscuit. bit of cracker. light alcohol. earthy and woody. tons of depth.

taste is great. comes over you in waves. starst with big herbal/minty character, then goes caramel and toffee, then rich dark and bittersweet chocolate and espresso. dark toasted multi-grain bread and biscuit. bit of dark fruit. just over medium bitterness level, but mostly chocolatey. lightly warming alcohol. woody and earthy. more licorice and fruit comes through as it warms.

mouthfeel is great. nice big body. very fine carbonation, just under medium level.

drinkability is great. great balance. great depth and complexity. this is one tasty stout. definitely not an american stout, and even a bit of a slant compared to your typical RIS, but damn fine regardless.

Mouthfeel: super creamy, very nice. Small bubbles.

330 ml bottle (11.2 oz.), bottle number 531/2080 brewed on March 7 and bottled April 11, 2011. Poured into a short stemmed tulip/snifter

Pours the darkest brown possible, viscous, topped with a two finger fluffy beige head. Great retention and wispy lacing left along the sides of the glass. Deep dark fruit, dark chocolate, and phenol alcohol on the nose. Opens with bold black cherry, plum, and raisin, joined with deep rich chocolate. Finishes smooth with continued rich dark chocolate covered dark fruit and some final hints of roasted malt and roasty bitterness. Exceptional mouthfeel, full-bodied, velvety and creamy. Low, but a very appropriate level of carbonation. Very complex, bold flavored Russian imperial stout. The brew tends to highlight chocolate and dark fruit flavors and could very easily trend overly sweet, however the balance in this brew is excellent. A definite "must-drink" for any Russian imperial stout lover.

Deep brownish black with just a little dark tan head that sits there waiting. Good lacing down the glass.

Super rich, fruity sweet roasted malts with some chocolate and coffee presence. Definitely a bit alcohol kick there too.

Super roasty and big dark chocolate taste on the front with the chocolate lingering more than anything. Bitter but dry. Big as the nose implies with the alcohol kick in there too. Something pretty unique about this one.

Pretty heavy but not super thick. Not too big on the carbonation. Smooth and creamy.

Very interesting, big, boozy yet mellow in a way, hardcore stout. It seems like it's going to be too much, but it never quite is, which is super interesting. I like it a lot.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

This was an impulse buy at a local Beer and Wine store. We drank this out of a tulip chilled to recommended temperature. Our Russian Imperial experience is somewhat limited (only having had a few a piece, though I drink Old Rasputin fairly regularly).

a- We liked the darkness and the healthy coffee colored head, pour a little over a finger thick, and dissipated fairly quickly.

s: We loved the smell. It smelled similar to other Russian imperials (dark notes: coffee, dark chocolate, a little nutty), with a bright smell which we assume comes from the Czech hops. Very aromatic.

t: Tastes as a Russian imperial should, with discord through the hop choices. Definitely interesting. Not super traditional but it has it's own charm. Lacks the post drink heat typically associated with this style.

m: We agreed that it was smooth and a bit thick (befitting the style), but had bright almost "tingle" sensation towards the middle. Again, lack of heat the style is typically assosiated with.

Overall: Fantastic beer. Would get again. Very impressed.

We have the good fortune to live close enough to the brewery that we occasionally stop in to stock up on beer and as an added benefit have some of Pepe's excellent cooking.

Brewed on August 27, 2008 and bottled on September 26, 2008. Bottle 141.

Poured into a Molen snifter which they use for their porters and stouts, Hell & Damnation poured with a huge head that continued to mushroom over the glass as it sat. The head is dark and rich with bubbles of various size -- beautiful! It quickly dissipates leaving a thin and uneven layer on the top of the beer leaving a bit of lacing on the side of the glass (very different experience from Paco -- due to his traveling across the Atlantic? In the end, not all that different as our dissipated very quickly). The beer itself is a beautiful dark rich brown, bordering on black with a hint of red.

The scent is a complex combination of what you expect to smell in an imperial stout (malt, burnt sugar or molasses) along with the smell of hops that tells you this will not be that simple. The smell of alcohol is not as strong as you would expect from the 10.2% ABV.

Expectations are high regarding taste as Molen is renowned for their imperial stouts and porters -- and this does not disappoint! Heavily roasted malts, chocolate and molasses all very well balanced against the relatively (for a RIS) strong taste of hops. It finishes with burnt sugar, and hops! Truly wonderful!

This beer fills your mouth. The carbonation is low but far from flat. Here in the Netherlands on a cold and rainy Friday night...I could drink this all night long...the combination of big stout and hops is very compelling...the problem is they didn't brew enough to make the drinkability question relevant -- there was only 282 bottles in this batch and we need to lay down the remainder of our stash as it will only grow better with age.

batch 2053, april 2011

A: mars black with tan head, large pancake batter bubbles, and decent retention.

S: Smells kind of like xhocolate covered gummy bears... tart cherry. awesome. coco creeps up as we warm up.

T: wow the nose mimic's the palate. This stuff is pretty fantastic. ever so slightly tart and bitter cherry wrapped in a chocolate coated tobacco leaf (thin leaf).

M: awesomely astringent.

O: this is a really great beer, I'm impressed. I can't wait to see how she ages. bottle claims 25 years, and Im inclined to see what happens.

4.63/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into a Westmalle chalice. Nice black body with a light tan head that dissipated quickly.

Smells of dark chocolate, espresso, malt, and very small hints of hops.

Taste is similar to the smell, but more complex with a slight fruity booziness and a little more hoppiness at the finish. Very complex and elegant, it reminds me of good quality dark chocolate; roasted bitterness balanced by a light fruitiness.

The mouthfeel is excellent. Whereas most imperial stouts seem to be thick and heavy, this has more of a medium mouthfeel and low carbonation, making it a little more light and smooth which allows me to better appreciate the balance of flavors.

For a big imperial stout (my bottle says 11.9% instead of 10.2%), this is remarkably drinkable. I still wouldn't have more than a glass or so at any given time, even if I could afford it, but the alcohol really isn't too noticeable.

Overall, this was a very nice imperial stout, and I think I'm going to have to pick up another bottle or two to set aside for a special occasion.

Got this botlle form rvdoorn as a special delivery. He found it at Berts Bierhuis in Utrecht.

A: Poured it into my Urthel glass and it looked viscous. A deep dark brown color near to black. Didn't observe any head at all.

S: First things that comes to mind is liquorice. After that coffee, cacao and roasted malts, some faint fruit smell.

T: Coffee, cacao, liquorice, sweet dried fruits, hints of apple/pear. Malts and a slight alcohol taste. A ligth bitter, spicy aftertaste.

M: CREAMY!!!! PLeasant, but there's no carbonation at all. The spicy aftertaste is masking this problem a little bit.

D: What a great Dutch beer this is. Too bad that there's no carbonation, that would have made it even greater for me. Buy again, again and again....

Pros: Such a unique and big flavor. Incredibly malty, rich, delicious. Finish is 20+ seconds, dark chocolate, espresso, peanut butter, fudge, dark fruit, resin hop. Terrific flavor.

Cons: The low carbonation level does hurt many factors of the beer, but it is such an exquisitely brewed offering, it's only a minor issue.

An amazing beer. A great beer for the cellar.

Fabulous. Extreme beer. I think meant to be almost still, which it is. No head, only a few bubbles. Color is an opaque brown tinged black. Aroma us ultra rich and chocolate malt roast coffee. Flavor is like aroma just a hint of bitterness at the end. Body is excellent despite being almost flat. All my friends sitting here trying it say "Goddamn good beer!" Only hints of alcohol in the end which is lengthy. Absolutely fabulous. Label says ageable up to 25 year. Wonder what an older version tastes like.

On tap at the Firkin in Libertyville, IL: from notes.
A: The rich tan head sits for a good amount of time before retreating on a solid black body. The server even mention that she had never seen a more bold, black body on a beer. None the less, pitch black, with a slight reddish transparency around the rim while drinking and looking through the light. The lacing is left is huge quantities that you cannot even see into the glass after.
S: Notes of espresso, while chocolate makes it presence on the aromas finish. A solid and constant aroma of liquorish.
T/M: Very sweet on the front with a huge malt bill, the rolling mouthfeel brings a layering of flavors, Starting with bitter chocolate and then moves to a candy liquorice, a smoked malt profile on the body. Turning to the lingering finish, the dominance of alcohol. The full bodied brew holds a nice and chewy mouthfeel that is very filling.
D: This is one of those brew where your damned if you do and damned if you don't. And if your damned if you don't then pity you, because this brew is one of those must try for the experience. Nothing that can be sessioned by any means, but the flavors are out of this world when combined with the body of this brew,

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Properly cellared 2 year old bottle. Pours dark brown with ruddy tones, appearing black in the glass. Thin fine light tan head dissipated quickly to a ring around the glass. Intense aroma of roasted malt, mild dark fruit and lots of chocolate. Flavor follows, rich dark roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, lighter coffee and dark fruit notes, incredibly well integrated. The body is thick and creamy. An all round well made treat for the senses. One of the best RIS I've had and hands down the best two year old aged bottle of any stout I've experienced. I'm not getting any oxidation notes from this. This is not distributed in my state and I wish I had bought more of these for the cellar. I see that the other very high scoring review was from the same vintage as this one and also tasted after 2 years, so I'd advise aging this one for a few years for a treat. Exceptional.

Thanks to Nick at LiquorMax for getting this stuff in.

Botte #19

Great stout, right up with the greats. Thick viscous liquid pours a dark murky brown with a silky espresso head that settles to a thin lace.

Fantastic nose of rich bready malts, chocolate, coffee, molasses, dark ripe pitted fruits and dank sticky hops.

Taste reaches equal complexities with superb balance. Fudge brownies, figs, raisins, nutty malts, roasted malts, anise and bitter hops.

Thick body has delicate carbontion and is only enhanced by adding the yeast.

Delicious stuff. Top knotch.

Bottle from the cracked kettle in Amsterdam, brewed and bottled January 2009 by the small Dutch brewery de Molen in Bodegraven. First time I have this beer myself, heard a lot of great stories about it.... Can't wait to try!

Poured into a Westvleteren glass. Pours a very deep, beautiful black color, with a very light head, that disappears almost immediately.

Scent is fantastic, very complex smell of roasted malts, chocolate, fruits, honey, caramel, coffee, some hops and a bit of alcohol.

The taste...,WOW, also here chocolate, roasted malts, raisins, caramel and coffee taste. The finish is slightly hoppy. The bitterness of this beer is well balanced with it's fruitiness, and the beer is very drinkable even though the alcohol percentage is high.

The mouthfeel is a bit strange, only because of the very low carbonation, comparable to some 10 year old vintage beers, but as mentioned by another reviewer, the beer is so great that this is only a minor issue. The beer feels light and smooth in the mouth.

Overall, a fantastic and well balanced beer, simply the best Dutch beer I had until now. Better than Westvleteren 12....??? difficult, I think I just prefer WV12 because it ages very very well!! I'm definitely going to put some Hel en Verdoemenis away in the cellar.

Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle into a Sam Adams pint. Brewed March 2011, bottled April, bottle number 304.

A: Pours an opaque, dark brown color with two fingers of tan head. Good lace and outstanding retention-- head lasts the entire glass.

S: Rich milk chocolate and some well-integrated floral notes. Really good.

T: A floral malt flavor up front yields gently to sweet molasses before ending with a gently smokey bitterness. There is also some coffee and chocolate in here. Full-flavored and refined. Some vinous overtones gradually emerge, and also the alcohol shows a bit, but not a problem. Towards the end some mint joins in for a great, bitter mint chocolate flavor. Very complex.

M: Full bodied with lush creaminess and viscosity, almost obscene it is so good.

O: Wow, fantastic stuff. Label says it can age for 25 years, little chance of it lasting that long in my cellar. Pricey and worth it, try it if you can.
