Vaiz (3333) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle at home. Black pour, tan head. Aroma is roasty, some wet cigar, old yellowish newspaper, vanilla, leather, a hint of cognac, chocolate, caramel, some bready yeast and tobacco. Flavor is smooth syrupy roasted goodness, very full bodied, slightly sweet chocolate and quite bitter roastedness with a spicy tobacco like finish. Awesome balance and hugy body. A brew to sip. Lovely.

caesar (5055) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2013
Tap @ de Molen. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolat, dry oak wood, some coffee. Full bodied, creamy texture. Big malty taste, quite sweet, medium bitter, slight dry. The oak chips came through a bit too much, or perhaps the Dutchsky gives it a woody touch as well. Not my favorite, as I’m a sucker for bourbon. Still, wonderful beer.

jmgreenuk (4251) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2013
Tap at De Molen. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin tan head and a thick oily consistency. The aroma is rich malty, with alcohol and a malty medicinal edge. The flavour is strong bitter, roasted malt, alcohol and chocolate, A really chewy flavour packed beer!

The beer smells like heavy roasted malts with a smoked touch. There is also the smell of alcohol. It is a ver soft creamy version of the hel & verdoemenis, but with an alcohol boost. I think i am tasting some peat from the whiskey, but i could be smoked malts. But overal a nice version of the classic hel & verdoemenis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
