ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours out in an opaque black colour with small disappearing tan-coloured head. Rich aroma of wood, whiskey, nuts, raisins, figs, black chocolate and roasted malts. Full-bodied with strong notes of wood, lack pepper, whiskey, burnt malts, black chocolate and white pepper. Long roasted finish of wood, white pepper, figs and black chocolate. Really intense and tasty!

Vaiz (3372) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2010
Bottle at home. Pitch black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, port, whisky and some slight ashy notes. Flavor is ashy, very roasted bitter, some bready yeast, slightly sweet caramel malts and some tobacco. Complex and slightly harsh. Creamy texture, very full body and low carbonation. Decent brew.

De molen black Jack. Small nip bottle consumed at de molen... Pours a dark cola brown, almost black, with a reddish tinge as you work towards the outer rim. Little to non-existent head, more so a thin ring of light beige film... Bourbon or whiskey woody nose with a little peat, tobacco, and some bitter dark chocolate... Flavors are an amalgamated combination of woodiness, chocolate, peat, and a soft smoke. Sweet through the beginning and middle moving to a bittering finish. Alcohol hits mid-palate and through the finish. Fairly warming all around. Closer to thin than medium bodied. Carbonation provides some life. 7/4/8/4/15

bottle ( 18 cl ) 437/ 1440 , thanx to kermis ! brewed 16-12-2009 , bottled 13 - 05 -2010 . back then i didnt even drink craftbeer lol :p pours very dark, near black. good foam ( brown) that fades , but leaves a good layer . smell is quite heavy, roasted malts, bitter. soft, sharp carbo. waaw ! best porter i had for sure. why not call this a imperial stout ? a rather light mouthfeel, but still very nice. carbo is low, but sharp. just the way it should be ! bitter, roasted malts. coffee, redicolously drinkable? 12,5 ABV ? this drinks away like a lager. there’s some ’ hidden ’bitterness in this, also get bread notes ( grains?? ) very sweet. leaves a sticky backfeeling, and a very , vey low alcohol warmth . but its there . has notes of coffee as wel. very complex, much is going on in there, yet its so easy to drink.. again, another ’old’ de molen beer that is redicolously awsome. is it that they get so much better with age? or is has de molen realy got so much worse?

PhillyCraft (3253) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle traded to me by kamiel, thanks dude, tried with Al, pours deep black with light off white head, accompanied by spotty and light lacing. Aromas of the most rich scotch whiskey smelling barrel ever, roast, licorice, dark fruit, molasses, flavor is coffee grounds, chocolate, fudge mix, tobacco. Everything that is good about stouts in the winter time is encompassed in this Dutch brew. Stickiness is medium with the same for the body. Warming. Cheers Meno.

Marsiblursi (3009) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2012
(Bottle) Pours dark brown to black with a small head. The aroma holds chocolate roast, light oak and some smoke. Some coffee as the beer gets warmer as well as brown sugar and raisins. The flavour is light sweet, near medium bitter and light acidic. Hops, oak, smoke, hard roast, coffee, liquorice and light citrus. The mouthfeel is soft but too light for an Imp. Light carbonation. Roasted and citric/resinous finish. Medium bodied.

Bottle # 531 shared at one of gunnar’s top shelf beer tastings. Black with clear red edges and topped by a short lived creamy brown head. Molasses and alcohol among the aromas along with roasted notes and dark dried fruits. Sweet and alcoholic flavors with plenty of roasted notes and coffee. Full bodied and splendid!
