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

A: Black with a light brown ring of head.

S: Anise, smokey Scotch, and maybe some coffee in the nose.

T: Smokey scotch, caramel, oak, roasted malt, chocolate and malt notes.

M: Medium-full bodied and definitely smooth.

O: This is very tasty. It'd probably be more interesting if it were one of their smoked imperial stouts. Interesting, more complex and compelling than my notes might suggest. Definitely worth a try if you can find it.

OK, first of all, this looks nothing like a stout. It pours a murky dark reddish brown with little or no carbonation. However, it smells delicious, there´s waves of sticky chocolate and hints of spice and vanilla.

It tastes quite different to regular Rasputin, in my opinion, but still not quite a stouty taste, it´s more like a really good barleywine. The alcohol is well hidden as is the whisky taste. I actually would have preferred a little more peat and smoke.

It´s very easy to drink and it should leave you looking for more. On the bottle it states you can store for 25 years, good luck with that, mine lasted a few days.

Bottle from Jeffo. Thanks! Served in a snifter.

A - White body settles to a thin collar and a few specks of lace. Very dark brown body with a touch of transparency to it.

S - Smokey, peaty scotch, sea air, a hint of iodine, roasted malts, charred wood, dark fruits, and a touch of red licorice. Somewhat understated.

T - The taste is sweeter, with more in the way of chocolate, nuts, and dark fruits, along with a good amount of roast. Peaty Scotch shows up late, and it's substantially more restrained than in the aroma. Alcohol is well-hidden.

M - Medium body that seems a bit thin for the ABV. Smooth texture, lower carbonation, and a bit of alcohol warmth that's consistent with the listed 11.4%.

D - Surprisingly restrained for a Bruickladdich barrel-aged beer, particularly taste-wise, and I enjoyed that. That being said, I was a bit underwhelmed; there's usually more flavor intensity to these De Molen offerings.

Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 9/15/11.

Pours an almost opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down either. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, scotch, and wood. Taste is much the same with a cocoa flavor on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is pretty tasty but has a better smell in my opinion.

Poured from a 33cL bottle into a brandy snifter.

A: Brown, clear, mahogany. Good head, but short-lived.

S: Smells like Angel's Share brandy barrel. Deep, alcoholic, and fruity. The yeast smells a bit stale. Apples, plumbs, cognac. Raw licorice?

T: Yummy! Round, bourbony molasses and honestly not a lot else, not that it needs it. A touch of fruit and candy sugar. The aftertaste is has a lingering ashiness, but that's the only sign of Bruichladdich. Delicious, but can only give it a 4 due to lack of complexity.

M: A bit flat; no carbonation. Sticky and thick.

O: Great beer, very interesting, not really an Imperial Stout as much as a scotch-aged BSDA or something.
