Wow what a nose. Almost Impy stout like. Chocolate, berries, port and tobacco. Lovely. Doesn’t quite deliver on the promise, but still pretty enjoyable. VERY hoppy for the style. Big bitterness cascades over the dark malts. The body is a bit oily and inconsistent for me though. Very good stuff.

Glouglouburp (5960) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2011
In short: An original hoppy, toasted, woody/foresty dark beer of some kind. Very nice.
How: Bottle 330. 2009 vintage, so probably around 2 years of age. Weird though, we just received those a few months ago?!? My bottle was 9.2% and not 10.5% as currently indicated on ratebeer
The look: Opaque burgundy body topped by a medium dark beige head
In long: Pleasant and unexpected nose of rye-like malts, fresh green hop pelletts, freshly cut cedar, burnt pie crust. Taste of toasted wood, brownies, earthy forest floor, cocoa powder, sugar pie, coniferous hops, a whole lot of fresh green hop pellets, light resinous notes. Bitterness level is medium and provides a perfect balance. Carbonation was perfectly levelled (a rarity for a De Molen) with a lot of soft bubbles. That beer sure wasn’t what I expect from a doppelbock but I don’t care, this was surprisingly drinkable, original, tasty, well balanced and relatively complex. I’m glad I got a good, perfectly carbonated bottle because with De Molen you never know if you’ll get a flat beer or an explosive gusher. Because of that everytime I open a De Molen beer I get nervous, my heartbeat accelerates, I start sweating, my hands shake… so yes, a rollercoaster ride would probably kill me.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass dark brown, almost black. Nice creamy head. Starts intense malty-strong, but background wonderful hoppy. More and more intense coffee notes, also some chocolate, not too dry. Finish with more hoppy notes, a bit sourish. Very interesting beer!

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
Draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Hazy dark mahogany color; the head reduces to some sparse bubbles and partial thin layer. Unexpected aroma: in the front there is a strong apricot jam and mango presence; then, subdued sweaty hops; then again, candies and light banana. Correct body strength (maybe less strong than expected); the mouthfeel is very smooth, there is good caramel flavor, with medium-dark chocolate, enough sweetness to please me, and some rare fruit touch. The bitterness is quite low. The final, nevertheless, is rich, with persistent, sweetish caramel, and finally the correct bitterness from the hops, long and balanced.
What is this? A huge crossover of styles...
Weird but I like it!

Bottled. Very deep amber colour, brown mediumsized beigeish brown colour. Aroma is alcohol, spices, strong maltyness along with some quite ashy notes. Flavours is sweet malts, some ashes as well as mild nutty notes. Alcohol is well hidden, but gives a quite burning note.

GT2 (8283) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 9, 2011
330mL at RBSG Philly 2011. Gusher! Loads of tan foam eject everywhere in a constant, unabating stream. Pours a cloudy mahogany with a giant yellow head. Nose is mint and butter with sweet red fruits. Taste is malt forward with toast, earth, barleywine spice, warming alcohol. Palate is a little muddy, dirty, overly bitter for style with stony mouthfeel.
