On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. Pours a hazy pale orange with an off-white head. Quite sweet with a light bitterness. Lots of hoppy aromas of citrus fruits with hints of pine. Hints of grain. Some alcohol notes. Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry finish.

Bottle. Trade with Kermis. Thanks. Pours cloudy golden with a small bubbly head. Lots of fruit, oak, caramel and citrus hops. Oily and slick. Vinous and rather boozy and hot flavor.

Huge beer, huge good. The dry-hopping seemed to lighten the beer slightly, in a very good way. Not sure how you can dry-hop a 15% beer and have it be noted, but this worked. De Molen continues to shine in the stout/bw categories.

Vestergaard (1761) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - APR 18, 2013
Tap @ borefts beer festival 2012. Cloudy amber, thick head. Sweet and hoppy. Suits each other pretty well. Pretty well balanced too. Very caramelly malt. Good idea with the dry hop!

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - APR 15, 2013
Pours reddish amber and hazy with no foam. Aromas: candied tropical fruits, dried mango and pine resin hoppy notes. The malty backbone is rich and well balanced (alcohol/sugar/bitterness) for a dessert beer. It is like a Chenin blanc, dryer and bitter but very pleasant. Yeah!

33cl bottle picked up at the De Molen bottle shop pours with a slightly hazy copper body that supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma is big musty sugar stewed prunes and dates and cherries as well as faint sludgy sticky malt sweetened grapefruit citrus notes and a dash of caramel. The taste is thick and rich and pummeling with near resiny hop bitterness from citrus notes that are blunted by mile wide rivers of sticky sweet malts that flow into malt syrup covered cherries and prunes. Wow, this is a real sipper with loads and loads of sweet dark fruity ester notes and resiny hop bitterness. The hop addition seems to have added a pleasing balance to the overly sweet (at least the batch I had a few years ago) flavor of the base beer.

LoFi (1710) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Ruby with a small off-white head. Aroma: malty, red berries, maybe pine, vinous, grass. Taste: malty, toffee, sour, earthy, vinous, light pine and citrus, pilsner/saaz. Something here reminds me of an unnecessarily strong pale euro lager. Full-bodied. A disappointment for me, but this bottle could have been a bit off.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2013
From tap @Borefts 2012. Hazy amber. Dense tan top. Inviting Cascade hops to the nose. Taste is substantially sweet, nicely balanced by a fine fruity bitterness, and a inviting hop flavor reminscent of orange marmelade, citrus zest and flowers. Full body. Soft on the palate. Nice all over.

Bottle from a friend. Sweet malty smell with a warming boozy feel to it. I sense some hops but they aren’t to powerfull. Sweet malty taste with some grassy hops. Boosy finish, but not at all as boozey as I would have expected. Very nice beer actually.
