Dark brown pour with lots of floaties and good tan head. Massive tobacco and chocolate and soy sauce. Big chewy body. Cocoa Porter finish. Hides the Abv. Very well.

What a shame! Full disclosure - my bottle was 6 years old acquired via trade. Cannot attest to proper cellaring. That said.. Pours murky brown/black with tons of carbonation. Aroma is sour, rancid, diswater, dark/burnt coffee. Taste essentially is all of those notes with some faint milk chocolate. I wanted this one to be so much more! I would speculate that improper cellaring played a role.

Had this 3 years ago so I’ve chilled out a bit since then, I should have slated this bastard. WORST gusher ever. Undid the cage, turned around to get a glass and boom, all over the ceiling, everywhere. Paid £10 for less than quarter of a bottle. Fucking joke. Thanks De Molen. What was left was 8 pints of foam and this little dribble, that I didn’t care for. Would never go near another after that. I’m a De Molen fan but grr
