Grima (2189) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, - FEB 26, 2012
The beer in the glass is very dark brown, almost black, with a fine creamy head. It smells strongly coffee, with plenty of roasted malt, peat, toffee and chocolate. Starts with a lot of chocolate and roasted malt, lots aromas of roasted coffee, with some caramel in the background, overall very sweet. The middle part shows a lot of burnt malts, combined with sweet chocolate and coffee. In the finish properly roasted malty, again with burnt malts and a slight berry-hoppy note. Awesome Porter!

Excalibur123 (269) - Soria, SPAIN - AUG 1, 2015
Color negro intenso opaco, con media cabeza de espuma que ofrece buena retención; aromas a malta tostada, cacao, ligero café y regaliz, en boca entrada media con ligero amargor, siguen notas a especias; cuerpo ligero con carbónico medio, retrogusto largo, ligeramente picante y maltoso; cerveza compleja en matices y equilibrada, una buena porter, la botella de 330 mls sabe a poco.

Dark black beer. Lovely toasty, smoky flavours, coffee grinds. Nicely balanced sweetness and rich mouthfeel. Carbonation was almost non existent.

mansquito (4116) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2015
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.

King_Alex_II (641) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 18, 2015
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.

SinH4 (1087) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2015
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!
