Thanks to my brother for sharing this bottle. Bottle 652 of 672. Bottled 3/13/2009. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is that of a basic English porter with slight twist. The first aromas I get are a lot of chocolate and coffee. I also get some roasted malt. At the end of the aroma is some tart dark fruit notes, which makes me wonder if the beer is going to be slightly sour. The flavor is basic porter. I get a ton of roasted malt and chocolate. There is not much coffee in the flavor and no detectable hops. As I get toward the end of the glass and the beer warms up toward room temperature, I start to get a little bit of the dark fruit tartness that I got in the aroma. The tartness goes very well with the other flavors, particularly the chocolate. Medium mouthfeel and high carbonation.

ContemplateBeer (1581) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Tap at Holy Grale, Louisville. Aroma of coffee, almonds, bitter cocoa and slight fruitcake. Appearance is black with creamy light mocha head; carbonation was just enough to keep the head afloat without overdoing it. Flavor matched the nose with a very creamy; velvet like mouthfeel. Palate was creamy; the finish quite clean. A nice porter-pleasant and quaffable.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JAN 2, 2011
Draught at The Trappist. Nice to see this on tap, seeing as De Molen bottles are quite pricey in these parts. Murky dark brown color with a tan head of larger bubbles. Interesting tangy dried fruit, dark chocolate, and treacle aroma with light toasty and roasty malt as well. Lightly acidic dark malt in the flavor and a nice toasty dryness. Medium-light in body and pretty smooth. Nice and drinkable on the whole, with a dryness that makes it go down very easily.
