One of the many brews that I had on the AMAZING & GREAT Borefts Bier Festival 2009 organised by De Molen brewery.

Tasted this one while hanging out with the very sympathic Alvinne brewers Davy & Glenn.

A: Black color with a espresso like cream head.

S: Roasted malts, coffee, some liquorice and a bit woody.

T: Roasted malts, coffee, dark fruits and a winy woody taste. Slightly bitter and salty in the aftertaste.

M: Medium carbonation, viscous mouthfeel and a medium body.

D: Very high. Too bad that the bottles were sold out immediately at the Molen Beershop. Damm!!!

Had this beer at the 1st Borefts bier festival (BBF 2009), personally served by the brewers from the Alvinne brewery, thnx guys!

Poured into a de Molen sniffer. The beer pours a black color, with a beautiful very long lasting espresso-colored head.

Smell: Coffee, roasted malts, liquorish and a bit woody. Nicely mixed sweet- and bitterness.

Taste: Roasted malts and coffee again, with hints of dark fruits. There is also a nice woody wine-like taste in the beer. The aftertaste has hints of liquorish, with bitterness in the end. When the beer warms up, also some hints of a well balanced sourness appears.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation, the beer is thick, viscous and oily. So smoooth

Overall: Beautiful beer. Perfectly balanced. A master piece, brewed with love!

A: Very dark brown with a small pale brown head. Some lacings.

S: Roasted malts, notes of chocolate and dark fruits.

T: The taste is better than the smell. It's fairly sweet and dominated by roasted malts. Notes of dark fruits and coffee. A hint of chocolate and a very mild spicy note.

M: Medium body, slightly sticky texture despite the very bubbly carbonation.

D: A decent beer, but I was actually somewhat disappointed in this considering the reputation behind this brewery and the fact that I usually like Belgian imperial stouts very much.
