3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
New Beer Distributors, NYC bottle ($4.25): Pours dark brown with a big frothy tan head. Aroma is lightly fruity, bready, and yeasty. It kind of smells like a brewery in a good way. Taste is sweet and bready. Hoppiness is pretty light. Chocolate is there. This bottle is a bit old, but it seems to have aged rather nicely.

Dark black color with little foam. The smell is dry and coffeeish. The taste is dry and the coffee part is almost like coffee powder mixed into this beer. Oily and smooth and dry with particle like aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2015 Beautiful amber color with tan head. Roasted malt, berries, surprisingly no chocolate. Taste is more roasted malts and berries, bittersweet. Juicy mouthfeel. Red vine feeling. Nice and surprising, like so many De Molens!
