Vignale (3323) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 12, 2012
Cognacsfatlagrad IS. Hälften Struisess Black Albert och hälften Mennos H&V. Lite rostat kaffe, bär och en lagom dos len choklad. Riktigt fin fruktighet som gör att jag börjar tänka i banor av smaksatt choklad. Men det finns även mörkt socker samt den där skvätten rostat kaffe man aldrig undkommer. Väldigt kraftig, men elegant och gentlemannamässig. Fantastisk.

In short: A big stout of great complexity and good drinkability. Top example of BA impy stout.
How: Bottle, tiny nip, consumed when over one year of age. Bottle sent to me by Doodler, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Pitch black body topped by a very small persistent tan head.
In long: Strong nose pushing forward burnt dark fruits, chocolate shop smell, vanilla and soy sauce in a fog of alcohol fumes. Taste improves an already inviting aroma. Medium roast, black chocolate, burnt black cake, cooked dark fruits, vanilla beans, salty liquorice candy, nice oak, good barrels integration that is far from overwhelming the beer. Nothing particularly original in the flavors of this beer, what makes this one a stand-out is the overall balance between the different flavour elements, the rich and lively mouthfeel with perfectly levelled carbonation, Excessively easy to drink for a 10% beer. Just as good, maybe even a little better than their Hel & Verdoemenis 666, this Black Damnation 666 might just be my favourite De Molen creation so far (and they make A LOT of beers). .
IMPORTANT NOTE: to brewers, movie producers, heavy-metal bands and others, please note that the number of the beast has been adjusted for inflation, please use 681 from now on.

From tiong. Thanks, man! Dec 5, 2012 batch had Oct. 2013. Deep black. Nose of anise, dark roasted and burnt malt, cola, vanilla. Fudge throughout, burnt malts, coffee, vanilla, licorice, barrel. Finish is incredibly long...bitter and sweet, boozy. Amazing balance. Creamy mouth feel with a lot of carbonation. Just keeps getting better. Bottle says 10.5%.

Bottle from Hopduvel. Palate is incredibly rich and full and balances sweetness with roasty notes, bitters on the end. Taste is dark chocolate, deep sweet soy sauce and coffee beans. Amazing one!

Sample courtesy of Menno just before the BBF 2010, and o tap again and again at the festival. Rich dark cocoa flavors with vanilla, plums, dates. Great character and complexity.

bierkoning (12403) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2010
Rating # 6666. This just seemed the right beer for it. Tap @ BBF 2010. Confit fruit, soy sauce and dark chocolate in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor with roast, ash and dark chocolate. Long confit fruit and alcohol aftertaste. Very complex and delicious. A second sample on day 2 of this event tasted even better.

Draft @ BBF. Pours solid black with a creamy espresso head. Complex aroma with hints of coffee, liquorice, chocolate roasted malt. Intense flavour with smoke, coffee, liquorice and much more. Another awesome IS from the molen.

Smag af malt, kaffe, chokolade, lidt lakrids, noget ristet et eller andet, vanilje, Grape, portvin, træfad, kælder, fyrrenåle. Sort med tæt brunt skum. Meget sød og meget bitter. Blød og olieagtig.

Borefts Beer Festival 2010, on tap. Wow. Chocolate, coffee. Full bodied, dry end game. Roast flavors punch through. Nice.
