Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Shared at the bottle share at the Addison Flying Saucer. The beer pours a hazy brown color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the dark fruit and toffee with some brown sugar mixed in. The aroma is more of the same. I get a lot of toffee and chocolate notes, with some dark fruit mixed in. The alcohol is fairly noticeable, as expected from a beer that is nearly 11 percent in alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

kappldav123 (4733) - GERMANY - AUG 22, 2011
Bottle looks simple but really good. Beer in the glass very dark, almost black, huge head. Starts intense malty, modest alcoholic, fine spicy like christmas spices. Also some chocolate and caramel notes. Warming and well balanced finish, some woody notes, still spicy. Great beer!

pivnizub (8750) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle: Hazy, ruby-amber coloured, some floaties visible, big and stable fluffy off-white head; fruity and dry caramelly nose, wanut-oil detectable; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, relatively soft; slightly lingering chocolatey and fruity finish with a light acidity underneath. O.K, but I’ve already sampled better beers of De Molen.........
