Bottle. [thank you, harrisoni]
Pours deep brown with a slight haze. Steady creamy, off-white head. Lots of lacings. Aroma is fruity, lots of roasted malts and dark caramel. Hops are fruity, pine, strawberry and grass. Impressive, creamy mouthfeel. Not that dry. Flavour is hoppy with lots of dark caramel, some slight roasted malts. Long, lingering bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

TheEpeeist (3328) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 3, 2009
75 cl bottle. Dark brown with a puffy tan head. Aroma nicely mingles orange and grapefruit juice with caramel and spice. Sticky medium body with lively carb. Taste is carmelized citrus, plum, peppery hops and peel. Figgy aftertaste. Another wonderful hybrid from De Molen.

oh6gdx (20299) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2009
Bottled. Hazy deep nutbrown colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is bigtime hops and some caramel malts. Flavour is fruity and flowery hops along with some licorice and alcohol. Balanced and pleasantly drinkable. More a richly hopped barley wine than IIPA/DIPA.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 9, 2009
Bottled (Bottled 17.11.08 bottle #251). Courtesy of bierkoning, ty Edo! Hazy dark brown, steady creamy beige head. Caramelly, rubbery and hoppy aroma. Lots of licorice, malts, some hops, but not actually really bitter - more like barley wine. Also some "De Molen yeast" -flavor. Suprisingly hops are not there.

Dedollewaitor (13803) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 8, 2009
35,5 cl bottle @ HJHansen, Odense. Bottle Nr. 224. Pours a muddy amber with small bubbles on top. Nose is sweet and vinous. Port, caramel, dark fruits and hops. No cabonation. Medium bodied. Oily, syrupy & sticky. Looking at it as a Barley Wine its quite nice. Warmth from alcohol. Bitter lasting hoppy end. Lacks carbonation like most De Molen beers.

alassio (71) - USA - APR 8, 2009
My flavor profile matches the great descriptions below (like Christian Scheffel’s wonderful cornucopia of essences) but this bottle (with wax seal) from BierKoning is just too flat (i.e. barely carbonated). It’s like the 6-pack of Bells Expedition I had got that lacked carbonation (my others since have all been effervescent) - - you know there are great flavors, but they just SIT there.
