Wonderful aroma and flavor. Then the long aftertaste of coffee does not do this beer worse. Cruel beer should be enjoyed. Follow me @ Kung av öl / King of Beer @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

77ships (3594) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2012
Draft @ ACBF 2012: black with a thick mocha head, smells of roasted malts, coffee & molasses sweetness, taste is bitter roasted malts, mixed with touch creamy oatmeal, cold coffee, quite fruity dark fruits, light berries, chocolate, molasses, espresso, there is some speyside in the finish but very light, malts & oatmeal body, De Molen keeps churning out stellar stouts, imagine if they were in the states , this was the lesser one @ ACBF

javiercrasher (160) - Granada, SPAIN - JAN 7, 2014
Negrísima, puro petróleo con una espuma color café que no termina por desaparecer y que va manchando la copa. Aromas a cacao y vainilla. Presencia del olor barrica, pero muy ligeramente. También un fondo ácido, como a manzana. Buen cuerpo y carbonatación media. Cremosa, ligeramente espesa y oleosa. Entra suave , hace presencia de nuevo el chocolate, algo de whisky pero muy fino y el alcohol casi ni se nota. Muy bien compensada, de las mejores añejadas de De Molen que recuerdo. Embotellada en febrero del 2012.

Plovmand (6323) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2012
On tap at CBC. Pours pitch black with a creamy lasting brown head. The aroma is hard roasted malt, oak, dark fruits, liquorice and booze. The flavour is roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, oak, liquorice and some fruit. Very very nice.

kraddel (2796) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2012
enjoyed this as a treat in a 33 cl bottle at de kelk ( bruges) . wich i’m very thanfull for ! this one and hel en verdoemenis made me a real fan of de molen ! this is a stout ( so i knew already i was gonna like it) but less sweet than de hel en verdoemenis. but WAAW ! so concentrated, withoud going over the top ! they’ve menaged to create a thickness, a complexity, a heaviness and so on, that is just right there at the line , but not crossing it. theyve pusched it to the maximum withoud going in the red zone ! if these were cheaper and unlimited ( wich i think they are) id have one weekley !

A pitch black colored beer, with a thick foamy dark beige heid. The aroma of Dark fruits, roasted malt, chocolate, some peat with spices and notes of tabacco. The taste of roasted mald, peat some chocolate, notes of wood, whisky and some sweet of dark fruits. The aftertaste is gentle sweet with roasted malt and bitter in the back chocolate with whisky.

Holmen1 (2315) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2013
Flaske i ensom majestet på Cafe Viking i Ægirsgad feb-12: en russian imp.stout på 12,3% til 70 kr høres må være en ønskedrøm, men når den voksforseglede flasken åpnes er det faktisk himmelen som åpner seg. Jeg er ingen fan av bourbon, men servert på denne måten forsvinner all forutinntatthet. Tar denne anytime som helst. Full skjerping på sykkelen er nødvendig nå.

Abijen (1402) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2013
Great beer! Pours a black beer, hazy liquid with a minimal brown tan head. It smelled like chocolate coffee and roasty. It tasted like coffee and chocolate, dark fruits. Light bitter and sweet. Full body, thick sticky and creamy texture. Carbo is a little bit to soft. The finish was astringent bitter and alcoholic.
