Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Belgium, Miorge Mihoublon. This is the newer, 11.6 ABV version. Pitch black pour with a one finger caramel-colored head that faded quickly with minimal lacing. Really nice nose that's dominated by fresh roasted coffee along with hints of cocoa, tobacco, and leather. The taste mirrors the nose. Loads of roasty coffee along with hints of wood, cocoa, tobacco, leather, and some subtle licorice. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with perfect carbonation and a great slightly sweet, bitter finish. Overall, this was way better than I had expected. The reviews that I had read did not prepare me for such an amazing beer. And the 11.6 ABV was nowhere to be found. Scary drinkable! Excellent interpretation of a coffee stout! Definitely one of the best I've had! Kudos Menno!

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. This was beer No. 1100 that I have sampled. Label lists this as bottle 137.

Pours dark brown to black. The aroma is strong black coffee with some roasted malts. The flavor is more of the same with intense black coffee and roasted malts. Medium-thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

33cl bottle. Dark ruby-brown pour with a very thin beige lacing. The smell is dominated by cold coffee and cocoa. Tastes like cold coffee, too - with some added notes of dark cherries, caramel and roasted malts. Smooth mouthfeel, flat, with a coffee bitter aftertaste.

330ml bottle, 11.6% ABV. "Malt & Mocha", maybe? If so, a decidedly less interesting thematic name this time around.

This beer pours a solid black, with slight basal cola highlights, and two fingers of puffy, thinly foamy beige head, which leaves some random streaky lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of sharp earthy, vegetal coffee beans, dry chocolate, wet ash, bready, crackery malt, acerbic yeast, and leafy, straw-like hops. The taste is like cold, bitter cafe au lait - cooled coffee and sour milk - bready, crusty malt, a touch of caramel, medium cocoa flakes, semi-sweet yeasty, indistinct fruit, and earthy, leafy hops.

The carbonation is sporadically lively in a mildly unexpected sense, the body a decently hefty medium weight, and fairly smooth amongst the remains of the day-old coffee. It finishes strangely on the sweet side, the cuppa joe, malt, and fruit growing a collective sugary additive bar.

A decent coffee-forward big stout, the titular malt playing a secondary role for the most part, at least as far as appearances go. Once again, for this tweaked (heh) style, the exorbitant ABV is conspicuous in its absence, leaving the bitter beans and lactic edge to have their way within. Good, especially if you like, well, coffee.

Bottle: Poured a clear dark ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of coffee is dominating with light black chocolate notes. Taste is also dominated by nice aromatic dry coffee notes with good roasted malt backbone and light black chocolate. Body is a bit too light with good carbonation and no alcohol was apparent. Good but body is too thin for style and lacking some character for such a huge beer.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with virtually no carbonation bubbles and only a tiny ring around the glass with no lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, coffee, cocoa with a hint of vanilla; a little boozy. Flavor is mildly sweet dark toasted malt, tired coffee, light cocoa and a little licorice. Medium bodied with mild carbonation, but better than I expected from the pour. A satisfactory coffee infused imperial stout, but not that complex or full bodied. Although it tastes OK, possibly the mildest stout of this ABV I've ever had. The flavors that are present are good, but muted. This has a (best by?) date of 2021, indicating this may have been brewed in 2016, so a few years old. That probably affected the coffee flavors, which were not that intense, but should not have dampened the malt and chocolate notes. I'm a De Molen fan and this is one of theirs that I've been looking forward too, but this is a bit too tame for me.
