330ml bottle
Served in a snifter
Bottled 18/04/12

A - It is black as the ace of spades. It is topped with three inches of tan head.

S - I smell some coffee and yeast.

T - The taste is coffee and cream. The coffee has undoubtedly mellowed over the two years it spent in the bottle, but it is still enough to make it taste great.

M - Full

O - This is a nice coffee stout. The coffee flavor and aroma has held up well for two years. Now I want to find a fresher bottle. I enjoyed it thoroughly. My bottle was brown and not green like the picture.

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.

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.

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.

A: Black with a thick foamy mocha head.

S: Coffee, amazing coffee, in the nose. Yes roasted malt, yes chocolate, but COFFEE is the deliciousness that is the nose.

T: Roasted malt, good coffee notes with dark chocolate in the finish. Quite dry. Delicious.

M: Full bodied not quite smooth.

O: Not the best De Molen beer, but it really makes me want to try Kopi Hel & Verdoemenis.
