JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 3, 2013
Fra fad, Mikkeller & Friends. Brunlig sort sag med et lille, hurtigt aftagende lysebrunt skum. Sødlig brændt maltet aroma. Træ, vanilje, chokolade, lakrids, whiskey. Heftig maltsødme i munden, men god smooth fylde, med klistret textur a la marcipan, varmende alkohol og ristet bitter finish.

BOLTZ7555 (2999) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle acquired via trade with Benzai...Rene is a ROCKSTAR! Onyx pour with a small latte head that left a spot or two inside the glass. Aroma of baker’s chocolate, molasses, campfire charred marshmallows, vanilla, and caramel. Flavor similar, showing a heavier dose of ash and smoke. Dense, creamy, and coating. Another great beer from De Molen!

Beermack (725) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 7, 2013
33cl bottle from Mikkeller & Friends bottleshop. Black pour with lovely mocha head that goes the distance. Lovely dark fruits and licorice on the nose - touches of coffee, slightly fruity and vanilla-driven whiskey notes in there too. Smooth vanilla-heavy whiskey in the taste, big roasted malt, plums, figs, dark chocolate, light roast coffee, more licorice, big brown sugar. Tiny touch of booze. Full bodied and velvety. A bit of an earthy hop bite to finish, lingering fruity whiskey and dark fruits. Great stuff.

Bottle n. 0679 from the De Molen shop
Black color with generous head. The aroma is initially very nice with a whiskey impression, but less interesting later with a vinous touch along dusty and milky roasted malts. Good body strength and smooth mouthfeel, not thick; strong flavor of roasted malts, some dry dark chocolate shavings, and a pleasant whiskey character; strong bitterness, and the alcohol too is quite strong; evident liquorice in the end.
Excellent as usual.
