ZodiacM (661) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 26, 2016
Uit de fles geschonken. Zwart bier met een flinke lichtbruine schuimkraag. Een verrassend bier van De Molen, en dat komt vooral door de combi rook, peat en koolzuur. De rooksmaak is heerlijk, de peat net sterk genoeg aanwezig en de koolzuur geeft een verfrissend element aan het bier. Qua geur ook prima: rook, lichte whisky geur, mout. Prima bier!

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

MRMedellin (271) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - MAY 1, 2016
Dark beer with a small head and low carbonation. The aroma is just the right one very smoked but sweet at the same time, some yeasty notes are felt, however they do not interfere with the overall experience. The flavor is really good, smoked but balanced with the malt and hops, and you get the right amount of everything at the end, prevailing just this smoky aftertaste.

Enteogenisk (56) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2016
(33 cl bottle in wine glass.) Pours clear dark brown with a thin yellowish head that fades rather fast into a soapy foam. Aroma is watery with a distinctly peated scent. Mouthfeel is oily and rather thin with peat and a not so bitter nor roasted porter foundation. I bet this would pair well with a lot of foods. Too bad I have only this bottle and just ate!

jamaty (1750) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 22, 2016
Marrón casi negra. Sin espuma. Aroma intenso, a bacon y humo. En boca tiene un sabor fuerte, A barbacoa, muy ahumado, notas de chocolate. Seca. Oleosa en el paladar, amarga al final y ciertamente licórica. Tan potente como dura.
