Holy Crap! This brew explosed into your mouth with taste and sweetness and alcohol. Quite yeasty and weird. Maybe slightly too sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33cl. Pours a muddy purple/red with no head and an aroma of cherries, berries and dark malts.. Taste is also high on fruits, again berries and cherries, but also grapes and plums. Also lots of brown sugar in the taste, too much sugar for my taste. Not the best from de Molen, but still a nice beer.

Bottle 0607 Muddy black pour, very still, no carbonation. Aroma is sweet, toffee and caramel and brown sugar sweetness. Flavor is sticky sweet, pretty one dimentional as far as that goes but still pretty enjoyable. Some chocolate and sugar with a hint of cherry and wood.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
2009 vintage, 33cl bottle. Reddish amber colour. Medium off-white head. Aroma: lots of vinous fruits (prunes, plums, raisins) and caramel malts. Taste: very sweet with caramel malts to the fore. Notes of oranges. Vinous fruits are all around, mostly plums and figs.The beer comes out as quite balanced. Full bodied with soft carbonation. The finish is gently bitter and sweet with vanilla and a warming alcohol flavor. A really good beer. Very taste and characterful. The vinous and liqueur-like qualities in this one is superb. Many raters found this beer flat, with no carbonation or head at all; I canít say the same for my bottle: I found a normal head and a quite soft carbonation...and I liked it!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from De Krackte Ketel (sic). Pours dark amber with no head. Light sweet aroma, almost like honey. Rather dense body with no real carbonation. Flavor is like an orange blossom meade? Itís sweet, but not obnoxiously so. The heat is not really there. How does a brewer craft this? This must be an example of artisanal brewing. Difficult to believe that itís a standard recipe.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled at RBWG 2010. There is huge old ale in this aroma, which goes far into the flavor, which is surprisingly sweet considering how high the percentage is. Did it really ferment this much? Good shit.
