Countbeer (4748) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2012
Bottle: Many thanks to Joes for sharing this one: Vintage 2006: Very vast creamy light tan medium head on top of a deep deep dark brown to black colored beer with a light brown shine. The aroma is a nice mix of chocolate from the bottle and oatmeal, nuts, toffee, hints of roasted malts, hint of liquor/alcohol from the glass. The flavours of this beer are complex and not complex at the same time: chocolate, roast, hint of portish alcohol, light hint of coffee, oatmeal, bitter. Vinous and tasty! The aftertaste has notes of bitter, chocolate, roasted ingredients and herbs. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, full body and a creamy light oily texture. Did this beer increase with all those years... Never had it before, so I don’t know, but after all these years it was still really good!

Koelschtrinker (11062) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Fruchtiger Malzantrunk, sehr weich und flüssig. Angenehm aromatisch werdend, gut versteckt ist der Alkohol, der nur kurz herauslugt. Das Malz ist nicht übermäßig stark, eine dumpfe Hopfen-Getreidenote wirkt dagegen. Gutes, sehr harmonisches Bier. Vielen Dank an den Doppelbock für das Bier! 12/9/10/10/7/10

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2009
Bottle, from trade with jbrus. A clear, ruby-brown beer with a finger-thick beige head. Dried fruits, some roasted malts, a little licorice and alcohol, and some maltyness in the aroma. Maybe a bit weak, but very good. Sweet flavor with dried fruits, licorice, some roasted malts and coffee. The long-lasting finish is much the same. Some bitterness, but roasted bitterness, not much hoppy bitterness to brag about. Full-bodied and slightly warming. A lovely beer, warm and tasteful. (090501)

Bottled 0,75 ltr (BB 05/2009)
Courtesy of bierkoning, thanks Edo! Dark brown, almost opaque color, steady creamy tan head, lots of lace. Strong licorice, roasted malty aroma. Full-bodied. Greasy coffee beans, dark chocolate, muscovado sugar. Aftertaste is short and it it is more sweet than roasted. De Molen is a quality brewery.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2008
Bottle, 8.6%. Fat vinous aroma, brown sugar. Almost black colour, small tight light brown head. The flavour is nicely roasted, vinous fruitiness, very flavourful. A little roasted bitterness, but by no means unpleasant. Creamy mouthfeel. Very nice.

Bottle. [thank you, Skortila!]
Pours a very dark ruby-red. It is only possible to see the red when looking directly towards a lightsource. On top sits a healthy head that initially (on pouring) seemed fizzy, but is now a slowly degrading creamy mass with bigger bubbles nearer the liquid. Rich chocolate aroma, some vanilla, apples and roasted malts in there as well. Great mouthfeel, low carbonation. Flavour is sweet, lightly vinious, the chocolate again dominates. Amid this, there is slight hints of oak, vanilla, coffee. I would say that the initial flavours are just a touch too sweet. But the aftertaste is great, leaving a lasting impression of bitterness and roasted chocolate. For a very long time. The alcohol never burns either, it just warms gently. A good brew, but like the Borefts Stout, a bit on the sweet side.
