Thanks to Jeffo for this beer. Much appreciated

A-- Poured a dark brown color and settled black with some tints of red on the sides. Slow pour got a massive, almost 4 finger brown sugar colored head. Did take its time to recede though. Very clean, left no lacing at all. Good head retention but think this might be a bit over carbonated.

S-- There is Alcohol in this?? Really?? 10.2%? Does not smell like it. Candied sugar, plumbs, and a lot of malt and roasted malts. Near burnt coffee like malts.

T-- Oddly enough big and thick but carbonated. Bittering hops do kick in in taste but this is on the thick side but with more carbonation. A lot of burnt coffee and stewed plumbs/ dark fruits.

M-- Sweet in the mouth. Almost want to say poached pear or plumb. A little thick and syrupy but workable. Bitter coffee finish with some dark fruits. Booze does become more noticeable in the mouth. More it warms up the more aniseed it becomes.

D-- Can be harsh and unfinished at times and at other times brilliant. Needs to be cellared for a bit. Can taste the serious potential this beer has. Worth finding and putting in the cellar for a year or so to let is smooth and round out. Very Belgian in style but done well.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this 33cl bottle. Bottled 6-24-10.

The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is very heavy on the caramel malt and roasted malt, along with some dark fruit mixed in. The beer has no hops in the aroma and smells very sweet.

The flavor is heavy on the dark fruit, toffee, brown sugar, chocolate, molasses, roasted malt and some nuttyness. The alcohol is very well hidden for a beer that is more than 10 percent in alcohol. A very complex, very malty stout. Very drinkable considering the ABV.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice Belgian-inspired Stout from De Molen.

4.38/5  rDev +11.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Poured into an oversized wine glass from an 11.2oz bottle courtesy of jeffo. thanks man.

Pours a deep brown, nearly black color, opaque with the exception of the very base of the glass which rests a tawny brown hue. Heavily carbonated, a slow gusher which makes head very quickly which makes it fun to pour. Outstanding retention as well from the fine bubbled light brown sugar head.

Smell is almost quady, soapy notes, dark stone fruits, bakers chocolate and a date-centric finish. Almost like a chocolate version of how westy 8 smells.

Taste starts out with a smoky bitter chocolate chicory flavor. Followed by a hoppiness as well. End very sweet, almost like chocolate covered crystalized dates. 

Mouthfeel is a lot more carbonated and thin than I expected. Doesn't add to nor detract from the beer but not what I was expecting.

Overall I want more if these Jeff, I wanna put a year or 5 on these and see what they get going on.

Got this at De Molen while visiting their shop.

Apparently this is a variation on their Rasputin Imperial Stout. From other sources, I've heard this is to be a rotating offering that is supposed to be a little easier to drink than their other big stouts.

From a bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours dark brown but sits black in the glass with higher levels of carbonation evident. Produces a big three finger medium-thick looking mocha colored head with great retention. A decent foam cap remains until the end and leaves some nice lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Medium strength nose with hints of roasted malts, toffee and candy sugar. Some vanilla and oak in there, as well as a bit of rum, even though it's not barrel aged. Nice.

TASTE: Some roasted malts and toffee notes, with a good dose of brown sugar. Some vanilla and oak as well, much like the nose had advertised, and some spicy alcohol and heat at the finish, though it's well controlled. Mild and dry aftertaste and only a hint of bitter-sweetness lingers.

PALATE: Medium body but very creamy smooth on the palate. Goes down like silk with a bit of a burn at the end, finishing slightly dry on the palate.

OVERALL: This was a variation on Rasputin and I liked it much better than its forerunner. Very drinkable for the ABV as well; De Molen has definitely succeeded in that department. This one also tasted as though it'd been aged in rum barrels, which was an interesting surprise. Luckily I have a few more of these. Recommended.
