I am just going to assume this is really Rasputin as the link said! So... I poured this motoroil in my glass and was surprised to see this little carbonation but, as expected, no light is coming through. I smell it, and I retrieve the base common to pretty much all de molen beers, which is this very sweet and honey/cherry/marzipan malty backbone, which all their beer really are variants of. Not that I am complaining, de Molen beers are awesome (generally). So I get, malts, cherry notes and dried fruits, not quite like in quads though, maybe some chocolate notes, marzipan, brown sugars, molasses and no coffee. Surprisingly. After 15 minutes of sniffing maybe is time to dig in. WOW. Here is the coffee! And licorice, and dried fruits again and some hops. The beer has a rather astringent character. Quite long aftertaste. Full bodied. Excellent. Difficult to set expectations with these guys.

11.2 ounce bottle into a snifter, bottled 12/4/14.

Pours dark and fairly opaque, no head, no lacing. Smell is of roasted malts, kind of metallic, some cocoa, some coffee. This has an odd aroma, it mostly reminds me of liver sausage, which I love, just not in my beer. Taste also leads with roasted malts, cocoa, vanilla, some coffee, raisins, some plums. Smooth, lower level of carbonation, a touch thin.

This is okay. Tastes pretty good, smells like garbage. Price point is high for what you get.

Note: Bottled 26 AUG 2014

A: Pours a clear yet still opaque jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and moderate amounts of dark cola brown and garnet red highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy tan head that reduces to a medium sized patch of thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of dark malts, roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee, and dark fruits (plum + fig). Light hints of Belgian yeast.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of dark malts and moderate flavors of roasted malts with a moderate amount of dark fruit (plum and fig) sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of coffee and unsweetened dark chocolate. Finally there is a light flavor of Belgian yeast in the finish.

M: Medium to heavy bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Lighter in body than a lot of other RIS beers but perhaps a little easier drinking as a result of the that and the well hidden alcohol. Very enjoyable and a nice example of the flavors of the style.

03/28/2014 bottle thanks to ROBDMP. Approaching my 2000th review and this has been sitting in the fridge for a long time. If anything, a De Molen brew is always interesting at least and usually a fun experience in very big beer.

A- Opens with a faint hiss from the classic black and white labeled bottle and pours into my snifter like oil, somewhat viscous and midnight black. A nutty tan head dies down fast to a tiny ring and lacing is non-existent.

S- Rich cocoa powder and musty, raisin oxidation notes off the top together confirming that this will be a bold brew. Burnt caramelized sugars, heavily toasted nuts, bitter dark chocolate and smoke also come to mind.

T- For how big this beer is I have to say there just isn't much going on here that grasps my palate. One thing that is BIG is the dark fruits like raisin and dark grape off the top. Beyond that is a barrage of oxidation, dark cocoa, burnt toast, heavily caramelized sugars and molasses sweetness.

MF- Somewhat unsettling for me. After smelling and seeing it one would think it would be like a rich cream on the palate; it is not. Thin for the ABV, style and flavors presented with low end carbonation adding to the lack of oomph. Slightly warm so at least the ABV is not overpowering.

I will have to revisit this brew in the future but for me it is a letdown compared to some of the other inspiring, complex high ABV brews De Molen has pulled off. The body comes off as thin and undercuts the whole experience which really doesn't deliver many rich or interesting flavors to grasp onto. Drinks like a tired, old beer.

11.2oz bottle, dated 8/27/14. Pours black with a small sized dark tan head. Smells of dark fruit and roasted malts. Taste follows almost exactly with some added coffee notes and char. Medium body and some prickly carbonation. The strong dark fruit flavors kind of reminded me of a quad. Brouwerij has better RIS's.
