MotherBrother (653) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2012
Pour dark, almost black, brown, with a large slightly creamy hazel-nutty brown. Aroma of coffee, whiskey, slight smoke, slight chocolate, vanilla, wood, slight oatmeal and plenty of roasted malts. Taste is a little bitter, with a lot of roasty notes. Medium bodied, with a rather fizzy carbonation.

luttonm (2069) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle from De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Almost black, rosy tan finger head. Tart, peaty wood. Crisp, minty herbs, peaty malt. Alc warms and bites, tobacco, leather. Quite sparkly carbonation for such a big beer, surprising. The whisky note is subtle and nice. Tasty, complex beer

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle at t’Arendsnest. Pours dark brown with a modest tna head and a treacle and alcohol aroma. There is a sour fruity flavor with a dry alcohol finish. Complex, but does not gel very well.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Big thanks to Matt for hauling this one back from Amsterdam. Pours black, with a large medium-tan head. Honey and oak from the scotch are apparent right in the aroma. Coffee, chocolate, and dark roasted malts also apparent. Nice and dry. Flavor follows. Effervescent for how big it is, and on the boozy side. Lots of development in the flavor -- even a slightly tart (lactic? chardonnay?) note in the middle, with more coffee on the back side. A little bit of smoked meat, too. Really nice,

pours pitch black with almost no head. Aroma has dark roasted malts, liquorice, weak leather, chocolate and some brown sugary notes. Taste is kinda chocolately with weak smoke, oat, roasted malts, wood, liquorice and alot of present alcohol.

jbeatty (947) - New York, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle, thanks to jeffo, 07/05/2012. Pours black, mocha cream colored head, nice surface retention and thick lacing. Aroma of dark chocolate with subtle fruity overtones, licorice, roasted malt, peat and a bit of iodine. Taste of sweet chocolate balanced by roast bitterness, espresso, with smoke, peat, and touch of alcohol heat. Full, smooth body. De Molen doing what they do best.

Miksu (4830) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2012
0.33 l bottle. Black color with rusty head. Aromas of perfumed alcohol, tar, licorice, wet wood and soft coffee. Grassy coffee, lots of alcohol, salt, licorice and charcoal. Full body, woody palate. Hard to drink, quite boozy, very slow sipper.

Vestergaard (174) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2012
Smells like pilsner-malt, leather, alcohol, brown sugar and licorice and some hops. The beer is pitch black the taste is very burned and hoppy. Also got these licorice notes. Bitter as well. Creamy but still very fizzy.

BenH (2014) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 28, 2012
Bottle. Black with a thin brown head. Nice aroma, smoke, whiskey, some chocolate. Taste has more of the same, smoke, chocolate, whisky. Full bodied, some sweetness. Pretty good

vipinvelp (1887) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2012
Pitch black with brown lasting foam head. Aroma is sweet caramel, so is taste. Also some wheat, bread taste. Little aftertaste. (Velp 201206) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
