courtesy of Laurent Mousson and Ron Pattinson - very dark brown almost black with a little beige foam; toasted aroma of chocolate and pralines; slightly oily, full-bodied and very bitter before a long chocolatey finish - deeply tasty, bitter and with a fantastic character, very complex yet very drinkable; marvellous!

It is exceptional. Man o man, these guys can make the beer. Very similar to the Hell & Damnation but a tad thiner and has the carbonation; a little easier to like. Aroma is rich: coffee cocoa roast malt. Flavor’s like aroma, extremely well balanced. Finish is like flavor, tapering and of medium to long. Session beer despite the strength. World classic.

This is not so much a beer as an experience. Your sitting in a London pub only days before WWI. The beer comes in a pint glass, light chocolate foam and very dark beer. The taste: this is what beer tasted like before the beer factory was invented after the next war. Very rich, full chocolate, coffee notes, very nice body. Complex. Perfectly balanced with both hops and malt harmonising beautifully with each other. Little to no taste of alcohol. Drunk at room temperature at de Wildeman approximately three weeks after bottling. Will almost certainly improve with age. The only negative: not enough bottles!

We have liked everything from de Molen so far, and the Triple Stout was no exception. Subtle, complex, smoky, slightly bitter chocolate tasting brew. This was bottle 474 of a batch of 696 bottles. Delicious.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Cloudy near black, rich creamy head. Rich and lovely aroma of strawberries, licorice and tobacco. Soft and gentle, perfumy with grainy dough. Incredibly edgeless for a 10% beer with warming alcohol slowly oncreeping. Minty finish with licorice bitterness. A superb beer with lovely depth and drinkability!

I haven’t rated a beer in a while and this particular brew inspired me to do so - mainly because there seems to be a fair amount of disparity in feedback. Either a) the company had an issue with quality control prior to shipping and consumption, or b) a lot of amateurs drank this beer and didn’t have the words to properly describe it. I’ll keep it simple. This is one of the better stouts I’ve ever had. It starts with a nice sharp crisp carbonation after a pleasant nose of slight chocolate, roasted dark carmelized malts with slight nuttiness, but the heat of the alcohol is noticeable. The crispness of the carbonation quickly fades leaving the palate with a toasted marshmallow, slightly sweet, perhaps vanilla and almond. There may be a bit of a sours finish (Monk’s Cafe type of slight rotten cherry) but really not that powerful. I would dismiss the claims of hoppiness and all descriptives associated with hops. Great stout that may actually may be an exceptional Porter.

Molt de cacau en nas i molt axocolatada en boca. Final sec i contundent. Magnífica.

Bottle from De Molen shop. Almost black color with medium beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, notes of hops. Roasted taste with coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits, light sourness. Roasty coffee bitter finish. Alcohol is evident, but not disturbing. Very tasty beer.

Incredibly smooth. Smells of whiskey, though it doesn’t look like it ever had that process. Next to no head.

Bottled. Thanks to Cuso. One word: wow! Nice triple RIS. This time a nice sour aftertaste, not disturbing, but pleasant. Overall fantastic!
