Bottle shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad. Brewed 16 Dec 2009 Bottled 13 May 2010 Bottle 338 of 1440 The beer is dark brown and sports a thin, beige head. The beer appears viscous, leaving a sheet of oily lacing on the walls of the snifter. The aroma offers oak, roast, tannins, dark fruit, malt, booze. The flavor follows the aroma to a tee. Lots of dark fruit character, which, in most cases, I do not care for, finding it to be a deterrent. However, this beer has a lot of nice things happening, all of which compliment one another. Low carbonation, thick and viscous, rich. A warming finish but alcohol presence is unobtrusive. Overall, a very tasty beer. I would enjoy having this again. Recommended.

I’ll start with the appearance, as that’s easy to describe - black black. It was hard to get a head from pouring, but on swirling one rose up. Sharp dark berry aroma, black forest gateau. Less sharpness in the taste, in fact it’s quite mellow. A rich roast, the burntness is high, but not astringent. Lovely and smooth in the palate, gentle carbonation crispens and cuts through the sugars. Lovely vapours in the mouth, chocolate and coffee roastiness, but also vanilla dna sweet heavy esters too. Rich roasty body, so full. A definite "wow!" in the mouth and early finish. Succulent and delicious. No sign of 12%. We put this to one side, and drank the Struise Black Jack, so that we could come back to finish with this one as it was so much better. When we came back to it, Anna could detect spearmint, and I could detect peanuts.

Nip bottle.. bottled on 5/13/10, #309. Poured medium-viscosity, deeper black with some swirls of dark beige sticking around. The aroma was decadent, with smoky whiskey and vanilla laced through rich chocolates.. brighter on the back of the nose, with oaky astringency and black pepper present.. some cocoa back there too. The flavor found sharp oak and whiskey notes throughout.. blended chocolates and vanilla plus lesser roasty black malts at the core.. finished with whiskey warmth and aftertaste.. surprisingly rough considering the smooth nose. Medium-ish bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. it tried to be smooth across the middle, but the aforementioned sharpness got in the way. Not bad, but not quite what I was hoping for.

phredrik (1023) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 6, 2012
Black pour, small brown head. Aroma is heavy chocolate and sweet mellow malts as well as loads of wood notes. Whisky, oak, vanilla, a bit of vinous hints. Taste is very nice and balanced. A high sweetness is matched by dry wood notes and whisky taste. Not a lot of residual sweetness, but nice chocolate. Some alcohol heat in the finish. Very nice - another black hit from De Molen.

Very dark brown cloudy beer. Decent tan head. Softish semi dry palate. Rich dark malt, a little fruit in the undertone. Tangy, minerals. Slightly salty malt finish, semi dry. Nice beer but lacks a little focus when judged by De Molens very high standard.

MotherBrother (817) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle @ mikkeller bar. Pour very dark, almost pitch black, with a small fizzy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, slight licorice, wood, whisky, slight peat, and a little smoke. - very well balanced. Taste is pretty sweet, with a roasted and slightly bitterness to it as well. Semi-full bodied, with a rather flat carb.

Bottle courtesy of ygtbsm94. Served in a sampler glass. Pours near black with a short head that recedes quickly. The nose brings some oak and a bit of whiskey along with some roast and chocolate. Touch of booze. Flavor has some barrel notes alongside roast and light chocolate. Fairly complex and pretty well integrated. Slight alcohol warmth. Medium body. Good, not great.
