BOLTZ7555 (2780) - 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!

Martinus (2739) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2013
Clear black colour, red hue, firm tan head. Aroma of whisky, bourbon, vanilla, wood, mocha coffee, light chocolate. Light woody flavour, dark chocolate, liquorice, bourbon-like whisky. Thick creamy body, finish bourbon, wood, alcohol, chocolate, hint of tar. Very smooth and balanced, yet still quite bold flavours. Definitely a beer that’s defending the De Molen grandeur in style.
(From 33cL bottle @ home. Bottle 0202. Thanks for the bottle, SecretSinterklaas, aka biersint)

thnx to kermis ! at rampkrot whale tasting, drank the day after ( it was closed by a corck, so the diffrence should not be that big ) i went INSANE when i heard this was at cbc , and i wasnt able to go . thank god i did get this one after all. 666 ’regular’ is my top favourite beer. so if only for the label, i NEEDED to have this ! pours pure black, small layer of grey foam, fades to a ring . very oaty in the smell, hel en verdoemenis is definetly there. actualy, this is very comparable to the 666 ! thats unexpected ( by the discription, not the label , wich is a copy of the regular one ;) ) bitter, bit lighter mouthfeel than the 666 . sweet, and VERY good. givven the fact this is a day open now ( closed pretty good though, it actualy popped when re-opened ) . not as shocking as the 666 though. it misses the warm smell, the supergood aftertaste. plus coffee is less straight forward. but whiskey isnt my thing AT ALL n, and it doesnt bother me, not even close, in this beer. so very well done! will rerate when i had again and the bottle hasnt been opened. i have another bottle so it should be no problem :)

tom10101 (2613) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). #635. Shared by JulienHuxley, thanks! Pitch black with a medium beige head and heavy lacing. Aroma is of fudge along with vanilla, roasted malt, toffee, light fruity notes, whisky, light smoke and hints of alcohol. Taste is moderately sweet and again quite fudge forward along vanilla, whisky, roasted malt, toffee, light fruits (less than aroma) with a touch of smoke and a light warming finish. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Velvety mouthfeel. Very complex and quite enjoyable. One of my favorite from the Hel & Verdoemenis series. Balance is pretty good and alcohol is well hidden for 13% abv. Delicious.

Defreni (2463) - Husum, DENMARK - DEC 1, 2013
Fad: Kulsort olieret øl med masser af bourbon i duften. Vanilie og chokolade kæmper med kaffe i denne yderst delikate impy. Smagen lever næsten op til duften der igen sidder i skabet. Dejlig øl.

Habanero (2436) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2013
Bottled. Pours opaque black with a small, beige head, leaving a fair lacing. Aroma of whiskey, roasted malt, plums, vanilla and dark chocolate. Sweet flavor that ends up with a little malt bitterness and alcohol. Full bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A great impy.

armando629 (2404) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 4, 2014
0,33 l bottle from De Molen Shop, courtesy of Balazs, thanks!
Poured rock oil, small but stable beige head. Very intensive aroma with roasted grains, burnt wood, alcohol and plum, ash and overriped fruits. Huge, oily body with caramel, whiskey, roasted grains and burnt wood. Fruity, demonish beer that shows us the temptation.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from DeMolen. Dark brown almost black with a small, light tan head. Aroma of cocoa, whiskey, vanilla, roasted malt and alcohol. Flavor is boozy up front with plenty of chocolate, bitter roast and oak. Medium to full body with soft carbonation and a long hot finish. Very similar to the other BA versions.

Aniela (2304) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle. Black beer with a not lasting tanned head. Dried dark fruits, vanilla, dark chocolate, licorice aroma with some alcohol hints. simliar flavour, maybe a bit too much alcohol flavour. This one needs to mature for a few years to peak.

kerenmk (2162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at our place, thanks DSG. Black, tan head, opaque. Sunflower seeds soaked in alcohol as well as prickly pear in the nose, wooden and a little roasty in the mouth. Syrupy texture, full body, a little wine finish. Good.
