An oil-slick of a beer, really sweet with overbearing barrel character but traces of really interesting dark fruit lying within. Not a success, moderately disappointing in fact, but not terrible.

Bottle at Paradiso Dupont. Hazy maroon amber color, flat. Big vanilla, bourbon, burnt caramel aroma. Taste is strong vanilla and caramel candy, light spice. Complex and delicious.

330 ML bottle Thanks to Jeffo and Owen for this Dark mahogany color, bottle filled to the top. Thank you De Molen. Light brown head, one finger in height. Yay, carbonation. Massive bourbon and dark fruit nose. Figs, dates, dark cherries, and brown sugar. Lots of booze in the nose. Taste is like the nose. Lots of booze, bourbon, oak, and dark fruits. Low carbonation and big feel. Rich and chewy beer. Nice though

Patrickctenchi (3578) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle: Dark, cloudy brown with a tan ring. Caramel, raisin, vanilla malt aroma. Flavour is surprisingly tart (at first sip) chocolate/whiskey/wood.... dark fruits, molasses. Boozy, creamy and dark. Flat, but thick...dark woody bitter. Excellent.....but ridiculously priced.

[Bottle] Opens with no hiss and the bottle is filled almost to the cap. Pours dark brown with no head. Another flat De Molen beer? Shocking. Oh well, it actually kind of works with this one. Aroma is pineapple, raspberry, lots of barrel--coconut, milk chocolate, and caramel. Really hot in the taste. Lots of barrel. Medium mouthfeel, flat, decent length finish. Overall, decent, but not even remotely worth the price. I had stopped buying De Molen after the last overpriced beer fiasco, but I bought this one because of Narke. I won’t make that mistake with De Molen again.

Bottle at Torst. Dark brown pour with red tints and a fleeting off white head. Caramel malt and cherry bouquet. Complex with caramel malts, dark fruits, booze, oak, and vanilla highlights. Good body and mouthfeel.
