fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2011

Bottle 750ml.

Clear medium to dark brown amber colour with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, chocolate, sugar, alcohol, light berries. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet, light light acidic and moderate bitter with a long duration, chocolate, dusty, caramel. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to light lively. Not the best De Molen beer, high alcohol and no benefit the normal Borefts Bock works better ! [20110518]

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2011
From 750ml bottle at the Cask Pub & Kitchen on 13 May 2011. Dark brown colour. Rich, sweet malt aroma. Also had some elements that I describe as "baked bean" in the aroma - that is vegetable-like but more savoury, almost "meaty" than boiled cabbage. Better on the palate - deep fruity malt (prunes and plums) with some toffee-ish caramel. Some sweetness but not too sticky. Mouthfeel is quite heavy with a bit of an alcohol burn. All in all though not one of my favourite De Molen beers. Not a huge fan of the style anyway to be honest.

Christian (11280) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2011
Dark amber with floaties, lasting off-white head. Aroma of dried fruit and toffee, with a bit of yeast. Sweet caramel dominated malt flavour with yeasty notes and a bit of alcohol

thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2011
Bottle, bought @ HJ Hansen, Odense.
Pours light muddy brown with a big, frothy, beige head. Fine duration. Aroma has chocolate, citrus, apricot and a milky touch to it. Light caramel as well. Medium to high carbonation, dry and quite fresh palate. Flavour has chocolate that is a bit milky. Sadly there is a quite firm vegetable note as well as a bit of cardboard. Some good fruity hops though. Mildly vinious. Not the best De Molen ever.
