Bottle@Home. Strong chocolate and coffee aroma, sweet. Very dark brown, beige head, good lace. Very sweet, milk chocolate, some coffee, roasted, sugary, molasses. Bit thin for the ABV. Flavorful but not really complex.

Jabah (397) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2016
This is a fine example of a British or Euro-stout. Has that flatter feel with a slight sour flavor. Also seems like a special or different yeast in these kinds. Alcohol is hidden quite well for 10%. Pours a darker brown and on the thinner side for a stout. Cloudy-ish....slightly clear beginning of pour with a little sediment towards the end. Flavors of chocolate, coffee, and some mild fruity stuff that gives that tarty-sour taste. Quite complex. but still retains that base stout flavor and feel. I highly recommend this one.

Gerbeer (3158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 20, 2016
330 ml bottle. Pours black with a moderate foamy tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate, vanilla, Roasted malts and a little alcohol. Flavors of same with emphasis on dry roasted malts plus a little black coffee and a lot more alcohol. Except for the noticeable ABV a really nice stout - rich though not sweet with all the essentials.

2/9/2009 10:09:23 AM Bier Koning. A wondrous Stout from de Molen. Dark brown with thin tan head. Dark roasty nose. Wondrous flavours of chocolates, dark berries, coffee. Thick and creamy texture that gets sweeter towards the finish.

jgb9348 (5727) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Dark brown coloured body with a very thin, half centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, roasted malt, earth, toffee, nuts, light hops, and a bit of soy sauce at the end - not so great. Light-bodied; Very thin malt notes with a touch of grain, but mostly a toffee and light pit fruit sweetness coupled with some mellow earthy notes and a touch of smoked peat. Aftertaste is very mild with the sweetness coming out, but not much other complexities. Overall, a very substandard beer, for the style, overall and especially the brewery - Iím not sure what happened here, but Iím definitely not getting this one again. That said, iím super happy that I bought this here stateside (still flew home with it), but that I didnít buy this in Holland and carry it back across the Atlantic - definitely not worth it at all for this beer. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Leukinís Liqour in Dunedin, Florida on 03-October-2015 for US$4,99 sampled at home in Washington on a chilly night of 06-January-2016, with a bottled on date of 24-May-2013. Bottled On: 24-May-2013 // Purchased: 03-October-2015 // Sampled: 06-January-2016

Ferris (12935) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle - Lots of dark cocoa notes and some nice chocolate sweetness. Much like a tootsie roll. Jet black with a rich and nice light brown head. Lots of bittersweet chocolate and coffee with some toasted notes. Finish is long but a bit thin. Nice

Advocate_Ames (581) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Pours dark with a defined foam head that dissipates. The aroma is of roasted malts, mild smoke, chocolate, booze, and a light sugary sweetness. Tasting, I got mild tobacco, dark roasted malts, chicory, booze, and sugar. The finish has a medium bitterness, noticeable booze, and sugary roasted grain flavor. Overall this was an interesting treat.
