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

18 cl bottle from De Bierkoning. Pours pitch black with little head. Aroma’s of wood, vanilla, whisky, smoke, soysauce, sweet malt, roast and alcohol. Taste is sweet ’n’ bitterish, roasted, with a hints of wood, whisky. Burning mouth (& throat-) feel, a bit too much for my liking. Roast and ash with some bitterness in the finish. Good, but could have done with a little less acolhol imho.
