Countbeer (4741) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle: The number of this Beast is 0049: Dark brown to black pour. Medium sized, vast, slowly changing, light sticky brown foamy head on top of a black colored beer. Aromas of porridge, some chocolate, some liquorice, light roast, liquor, light whiskey (and lighter cognac) notes, hint of berries, hints of marzepin, filled chocolate, light tar ish tones, grass and floral. A well balanced herbal floral barrel aged roasted mix. Flavours of dry liquor and dry roast, some (dry) liquorice, plant extracts, spices, alcohol, bitter, some chocolate and some cacoa, figs, coal, tabacco, some berries, parfume, oil, tar, chalk, some wood burn/roast and ash. Balanced. Aftertaste is plant extract roast, bitter, grass, liquorice, malt roast, light porridge and tabacco. Low carbo, soft silky mouthfeel, full body and an oily texture. Decent beer, but there’s something strange with this beer. Is it the liquor, the dryness or the spicy bitter tones.. Or is it a mix of all these things? But it’s soft and smooth.. After a time breathing it all becomes even better balanced. Good beer!

77ships (4298) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Thx to Kraddel @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 33 cl. Bottle sample. Didn’t know that this existed until today. Black mocha head only on the sides. Nose is mocha, cognac booze, light soy, chocolate, bitter,… Taste is bitter soy, roasted chocolate, vinous, red grapes, vines, liquorish, molasses, bitter roasted malts, bitter herbs, candy, strong bitter spices,… Flat mats,… okay but nowhere near as good as some of the original 666 I have head but that is the regular De Molen story these days.

330ml bottle. Deepest dark brown with small, creamy to frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Dark malty aroma with minimally smoky Bourbon notes, vanilla. Taste has a Bourbon entry, vanilla, a touch of smoke, dark malty coffee and chocolate notes. Too Bourbon dominated for me.
