3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Corked bottle. Dark brown color. Bready roastaroma with chocolate and a hint of peat. Full bodied yet bonedry. Thick mouthfeel. Slightly alcoholic but loads of flavor. Rye bread, malt, grassy hops, hints of peat and butter. Excellent!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dense, cream-brown head over dark cola-coloured beer; shards of lace. Alcohol & dark candi sugar nose, bit of parsley and sweet, dark bread. Much drier, leafier than the nose suggested. Still a bit of sweetness there, partly candi-like, partly liquorice. Bit of breadcrust, and dry-on-the-verge-of-bitterish. Quite slick, medium to well-bodied; obvious alcoholwarming. A typical De Molen beer: it is a Doppelbock... in a way - but good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I expected a sweet bockbeer, but this one is bonedry, and i loved it.
Huge creamy head. Complex taste and nose, almost like a rochefort 8.
Long lingering finish of fruits and raisins.
On tap at the brewery.
