3.88/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

330ml bottle, 11.2% ABV, packaged on April 19, 2012. Yet another De Molen offering where the Dutch-only label offers little in the sense of a stylistic impression. At least I have more than ample time to jot this down as the initial pour really takes its sweet time.

This beer pours a solid tinted black, with a very over-wrought puffy, billowy monstrosity of scarily rising beige head, which puts down some serious roots, only eventually leaving some broad swaths of caked hanging fuzzy lace around the glass as it slowly fades away. Over carbonation? Yes, methinks.

It smells pungently of dry roasted coffee grounds, earthy and cocoa-striped, some overwhelmed roasted biscuit malt, a touch of gritty dark chocolate, and some middling lactic essence. The taste is dry, earthy coffee, over a bed of semi-sweet chocolate, lightly roasted bready caramel malt, and some weirdly understated vegetal, spicy pepper essences. A bit of lingering yeast and earthy adjunct just adds to the strangeness.

The bubbles are fairly inert, the body a decent medium weight, and adequately smooth. It finishes on the mildly sweet side, as the lightly smoked character merges with the coffee and malt players.

An agreeable enough strong stout, where the alcohol has the temerity to stay under the radar until the near finish, where the heat doesn't exactly rear up, but carries on gamely enough to make itself known. Overall, a nice, warm, coffee-heavy tipple, once you tear through the carbonation screen.

11.2oz. April 2012 bottling.
Very dark brown pour, near black. Large rocky tan head. I don't care for this as it has often linked to over carbed brews, especially from this brewer. I guess I just don't care for Belgian beer qualities in not Belgian styles.

Aroma, big coffee, but there is some molasses and sweet chocolate.

Taste, Again big coffee, a cafe mocha kind of thing. It is nice and smooth. Mild woodiness.

Very smooth and nearly creamy. Presence of heavy carbonation does not manifest itself. Solidly medium bodied. Coats well enough. Just a tad warming but nothing offensive for me. No problem drinking this one.

Really ended up being much better than I expected. Just be in the mood for a heavy coffee forward brew.
For the price it is probably only worth trying once though.

3.93/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottled 18/04/12 (DD/MM/YY). Imported by the Shelton Bastards. .11.2 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Guinness stem-goblet in me gaff in high altitude Castle Rock, Colorado. Reviewed live. Expectations are high given the brewery.

Poured with vigor as undercarbonation is expected; De Molen has consistent carbonation issues in my experience. Served after a brief period following its removal from the fridge, but allowed to warm considerably over the course of consumption.

A: Pours a glass full of tan colour froth foam of good thickness, good cream, and great retention. It appears in this case De Molen overcarbonated it. Body colour is a solid nontransparent opaque black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Subtle coffee with some richness and roast, dark malts, slightly stale biscuit malt, cream, and chocolate malt. A rather understated mild aroma, especially considering the style. No yeast character is detectable, nor is any alcohol.

T: Roast, dark malts, caramel, coffee, chocolate malt, and some deeper java roast, but not much. It's a bit bland, actually, and the balance is lackluster. Not real well built for the style, but it does hide its ABV well. Lacks yeasty character. A hint of...light chili pepper? What's that doing there? In spite of its flaws, I do love the roasty character that's there. The actual kopi loewak is nice, but nowhere near as evocative as it is in Mikkel's offerings.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Delightfully cream. Impressively light on the palate for the style, showcasing some delicate fragility. The mouthfeel is the best part of this beer. In spite of the problems with the presentation/appearance, the carbonation is actually quite good. The mouthfeel is so remarkable; it's a damn shame the flavours aren't up to par.

Dr: Very drinkable for the high ABV, and it's growing on me as it warms. Hides its ABV incredibly well. I'm going to enjoy finishing this bottle, and I'm glad it's a small format. Another great stout from De Molen.

B+

It gains body as it warms. Serve at room temperature - not even slightly chilled.

Drank well out of me Guinness goblet.

Bottled 4/18/12. No problem forming a head; super fizzy. I get black coffee, dark chocolate, some smoke, raisin, and maybe a bit of port wine in the nose. Really nice coffee flavors, some good dark chocolate, caramel. A tiny hint of bitterness, and maybe just a touch of alcohol on the end, but really well hidden otherwise. It hasn't warmed as much as I'd like it to, but pretty tasty so far as I write this.

poured into my oakquinox tasting glass. Brought this back from Holland.

A: pours a thick black with a very small dark brown head that disappears almost immediately.

S: lots of coffee and chocolate notes with some roasty malts

T: lots of coffee some chocolate and some roasty malt, not terribly complex but good if you like coffee.

M: a little under carbonated and overly bitter with the coffee

overall a very good beer especially if your into coffee stouts one that is worth searching out.

Shared by Mr. ygtbsm94 at his home during a tasting, thanks!

Poured into a Jester King snifter and this guy foams like a motherfucker. Almost black with some crazy lacing. Goddamn is the nose loaded with coffee and some sweet cream. Taste is very similar, but not quite as rich. Some roast in there as well adds some bitterness.

An interesting beer and glad that I tried it, but not something that I need to have again.

Bottle dated 18/04/12

Thick, chunky, tan head sits atop a very dark brown, nearly black body. Coffee grounds, charred grains, and hints of chocolate comprise a heady aroma. Coffee, booze, bitter chocolate immediately announce their presence at first taste; sharp alcohol and bitter aftertaste. Medium-heavy body, velvety smooth on the tongue.

The coffee and ABV really come forward with this beer. Thank goodness the malt sweetness and subdued hop bitterness keep things reined in and balanced. Overall, a really nice coffee stout that hits the mark on all fronts.

Poured this one into a snifter from a bottle I brought back from the Netherlands.

Appearance - Dark, black as the night I consumed it.

Smell - Roasty toasty malts, faint coffee notes, and I couldn't help but feel I was getting some of the mustiness all the way from the civet poop the kopi luwak (loewak) coffee beans are famous for.

Taste - a proper malty stout, though a touch bitter like espresso coffee notes, and again some mustiness.

Mouthfeel - A touch lighter/thinner than I was expecting, a bit more carbonated than the silky smooth coffee stout I was expecting.

Overall - The numbers reflect my overall opinion, even though my description calls out the few critiques I could find. First full review on BA for me, and while you won't find a bigger proponent of De Molen beers, this isn't the best one they make. Another solid offering though, utilizing the most expensive coffee in the world.

4.01/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 4

Pours a huge head but thin and somewhat unimpressive. Good lacing is left and like most Do Molens dark but not pitch black.

Such a nice coffee aroma opens this one up, it's huge and robust. Sadly the coffee ends and it turns sweet, like someone would put sugar in a coffee? It just seems wrong, but still the sweetness does add a certain intrigue.

Coffee roasted finsh with sugars mixed in. This is a hard one the flesh out. This is a HUGE coffee beer, opens with coffee and sugary stout and finishes with coffee grounds to the point I feel like I just hate a handful of coffee beans.

The mouth feel on this beer is where it looses me. It is medium bodied and a bit "forced" in the carbonation. I like what they are going for here but they just miss it here. Needs to be either more creamy from carbonation or a bit denser to give it that lingering feeling.

Despite some clear flaws this is really good stuff. One of the most coffee forward beers one will have, almost to the point where it not being coffee hurts it. If De Molen could make it less sweet and more carbonated we might have perfection. As it stands the perfect beer for a medium blend coffee drinker who does the un thinkable and puts sugar in the coffee!

Bottle #208 of 619, bought in the Molen Brewery during the Borefts Bier Festival (BBF) 2009.

Poured into an original the Molen sniffer. Beers pours a beautiful dark brown-black color, with a very nice, long lasting fluffy beige head, which leaves a sticky lacing which lasted throughout the whole tasting.

Smell: Nice strong roasted coffee, mocha, some hints of dark chocolate and some warming alcohol.

Taste: Full of bitter, roasted coffee, mocha, dark chocolate. The bitterness of the beer is balanced with some nice, light sweetness probably originating from the malts. Aftertaste is long lasting and a bit dry, with coffee and bitter hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, medium-thick-bodied. Nice and creamy

Overall: This beer is all about coffee. If you don't like coffee, you don't like this beer. A very nice coffee stout, although not as balanced and creamy as the Mikkeller Beer-Geek-Brunch Weasel. Nevertheless, a great beer.

Poured into a perfect pint. Bottled on 18/04/12 with a purchase price of $9.50.

4.0 A: Black color. Took two pours to fill the glass since the first gave me a full hand of head. Anyway, big, foamy tan head with a pillowy top. Retention is insanely good which resulted in many minutes passing before I could get the glass full. Decent amount of lacing is left.

4.0 S: Potent, refined coffee sticks out at first sniff. Tons of coffee to the point that it blocks out much of the other aromas. Supple roastiness. That's about all I can say. Coffee, coffee, and more coffee. I definitely like it. Booze is absent.

4.0 T: Again there's simply tons of coffee. Smooth, supple roastiness, refined. The base gets to come out and play unlike the nose. Chocolate is the next most prominent flavor with some caramel underneath. Moderate neutral malt sweetness. Booze is again well hidden. Great if you love coffee.

4.5 M: Heavier medium to lighter heavy body. Good moderate carbonation despite the giant head. Very nice creaminess with a touch of chewiness to it. Super smooth with a light boozy warming on finish.

4.0 D: This is closer to stouted coffee than a coffee stout. That said, it's pretty tasty and worth a try if you like coffee.

Bottle from 18/04/12. Poured into a large tulip.

Pours a rich brown-black, massive caramel coloured head that luckily got stuck on the lip of the tulip otherwise it was coming out! So I'm anticipating even if I can't really see it lots of carbonation bubbles inside... eventually dies off but does leave some decent lace. Dominating smell is right away lots of malt, but also this strange earthy acidity from the coffee but not a typical coffee smell...Taste is again similar but you really feel as if the coffee dominates this beer, though it really catches you off guard...this is not your run of the mill dark coffee stout of espresso and chocolate... this is really earthy, acidic, funky coffee.... I guess you would get that when you realize you're drinking civet digested, then pooped out coffee cherries! I certainly don't get a whole lot of chocolate in this one, just some light fruit, mild bitterness and more earthiness from perhaps the barley. Mouthfeel is pretty crazy as this one is super carbonated, not sure if there is any in bottle fermentation on this one, but regardless, not super heavy or syrupy as you'd find in big bodied imperials, some hints of alcohol but surprisingly very concealed by the carbonation that you forget this is over 11%...

Overall a very interesting beer, from what I would expect is a very unique coffee... I'm glad I got to try it and it is one of the more different but better coffee forward beers out there, but I don't think I'd drink this on a regular basis and as such am not so sad they are going to stop brewing it for ethical reasons which I think we can all totally support. So I raise my dark frothy glass to De Molen for doing the right thing!

A another De Molen gusher but I got all but a few drops in the glass, dark liquid but I can still see the streams of bubbles feeding the light mocha foam that's three fingers deep for most of the glass and leaves chunks of lace well down the glass

S cold coffee grinds, espresso infused bakers chocolate, chocolate covered raisins, plums, dusty coco powder, nice mix of fruit, coffee and chocolate

T some char and just a darker roast in general compare to the nose, earthy with almost a faint top soil thing going for it, tastes better then it sounds

M on the foamy side of cream, slick after the fact with a little heat, dark roast espresso on the finish lingers for ages

O nice big coffee stout going on here, no real flaws and no complaints from me, coffee lovers rejoice

Huge Thanks to SeaBass for sharing this one with me.

A: Pours a nice darker shade of brown. Huge fizzy tan head. The head hangs around for a bit before dying to a tight ring. Nice spotty lace.

S: Tons of coffee. Very aggressive roast with notes of acidic bitterness. Light chocolate undertones, but this one is all about coffee.

T: You guessed it coffee. Very earthy, almost dirty tasting. Sort of like the coffee you would find in the rustic parts of the world. The acid level is fairly high with some tar like elements. There are mild chocolate notes with a bit of charred oak.

M: On the lighter side of body, bitey carbonation, dry finish.

D: Pretty good. This one comes in a small bottle and we split it two ways. Could have easily sipped on it myself though.

Pour is a dark brown, almost black color, with a fizzy tan head. The nose has a touch of roasted malt and then delicious coffee that is better on beer than real coffee. Taste is same, roasty, tons of well integrated clean coffee with hints of vanilla and chocolate and a light to moderate bitterness. Body is creamy and airy, assertive carbonation. Integrates the coffee extremely well without being ashy or peaty and overly bitter.

11.2oz bottle poured into a snifter. Bottling date is marked at 4/18/12, making this just over a year old. The label advises to 'enjoy within five years'.

A: Deep brown on the pour, very close to black. Four fingers of creamy head form after a stiff pour. Retention is excellent, and a thin blanket of lacing costs the whole glass.

S: Even after a year the coffee aroma is still very prominent. It is earthy and nutty with a mild roast character. Milk chocolate and bakers chocolate. Graham cracker. Esters of plum and raspberry. Kiss of smoke, faint starchy-type smell.

T: Cola. Deep plum and currant darkfruit. Roasted malts take over with tame tastes of char, smoke, and woodiness. Bakers chocolate and black cocoa powder. Black licorice and yeasty spice. Subtle spicy alcohol. Nutty and earthy coffee flavors dominate the back end. Dry finish of yeasty spice, rich nutty coffee, and a hint of smoke.

M: The body is moderately thick. It is rich, full, and creamy, but sits lightly. The blast of prickling, fine bubbled carbonation has a lot to do with that. Very smooth. The subtle hint of alcohol warmth would never betray the 11.2% abv.

O: This one grew on me as I drank it, and the over-the-top smoothness is what really won me over in the end. A great coffee stout with a Belgian twist.

Bottle purchased from the Craft Beer Store in Hamburg, dated around January '13, purchased and poured into a pint glass on 2/25/14.

A: Night black with thick tan head.

S: This beer smells like a strong cup of black, cold coffee fresh from the fridge.

T: This beer has the strongest coffee notes of any Coffee Stout I've had before. Not much alcohol taste for the big ABV. Finishes with a slight spiciness.

M: Nice carbonation, thick and smooth.

O: A great beer if you like coffee because that is what surely will dominate the palate. Didn't know anything about this particular coffee before purchasing the beer. Happy to have had the beer, especially now that De Molen will not be brewing this beer anymore. Such a strong coffee character, almost wished I would've saved it for breakfast.

English (sorry if there's any mistake in the text):
Had in a bottle at home, bought at a local shop, Labirratorium (Madrid). Pours black with a brown head, which flies away quickly and only leves a small sticky head.
Aroma is pretty intense: mostly dark coffee, but with the sweetness of caramel and roasted malts.
Taste is mostly the same: the coffee is back again but maybe there's a little bit of chocolate in this one.
Full-bodied withe medium carbonation.
This is a really nice beer, and if you also like coffee, you're going to love this one.

Español:
Botella comprada en Labirratorium, tienda local de madrid.
El cuerpo es de color negro totalmente opaco, con espuma marrón claro que desaparece rápido, aunque deja una pequeña capa que permanece ahí el resto del tiempo.
Tiene aroma muy intenso a café, aunque muy bien acompañado de toques más dulces a caramelo y maltas tostadas.
El sabor es prácticamente igual, con el café dominando la escena aunque de nuevo con otras notas dulces.Tal vez tenga un ligero toque a chocolate también.
En general hay que decir que es una cerveza excelente, y al que además le guste el café definitivamente le encantará.

Bottle from a friend in Alberta. Bottled April 2012.

A - Pours black with a giant fluffy beige head. Wicked lace from the giant head left two fingers of retention and awesome lace. No complaints here.

S - Aggressive coffee, earthy. Good but really basic to some degree.

T - Strong coffee, earthy, dark fruit, lot's of roast. Sweetness present, roast, some alcohol. Interesting and more complex than aroma. Tasty stuff.

M - Good carbonation, full body, tasty coffee and dark fruit finish. Nice.

O/D - This is a hella coffee stout. While the aroma was a little bit one dimensional, the palate came through much more complex while retaining the intense coffee flavour.

(Bottled on May 3, 2009 #456)

Bit of a gusher in the pour; when things died down a solid finger of foamy tan head with a nearly jet black color that looks pretty damn dense.

Aroma is a full on coffee onslaught, really fresh, but without a cutting bitterness; nice and roasty; but really not catching any sweetness that is often plugged into this style. Really great stuff going on in the aroma in terms of the richness of the coffee. Not overly complex, but spot on.

The fresh roasted coffee continues into the flavor and is definitely way out front. Richly roasted malts, and a sneak of of booze comes in, but simply turns into a nice warming feeling. Bittersweet chocolate hints are very light, but still there. This is definitely one of the more coffee forward takes on the Coffee IIRS range, but I like it. Medium brew in the MF, and the carbonation was a bit too tingly but not bad. Great stuff, and this is certainly great if you are a coffee lover as well as a beer lover.

I am a little confused. I had this beer at my uncle's Peter's place, where he shared this fantastic beer with me. But I wrote down that th ABV is 11,2%!!! Did we have a another batch, because I am pretty certain I wrote it down correctly?

A - Pitch black (alway a good thing if it comes to beer :)) and a beige head.

S - Coffee, chocolate and citrus like hops.

T - Much more taste than the smell gave away. A nice coffee and chocolate mixture with some great hop presence. The beer was sweet upfront and bitter in the finish.

M - A soft carbonation that goes very excellent with the taste. It would have been nice if the body was a little thicker. The finish was a nicely bitter.

O - A very nice coffee stout, to my not so humble opinion among the Dutch best stouts.
