jfb (5438) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 (bottle) pours black in colour with a creamy beige head. aroma of rotten peaches, rubber tires, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar, lavender, toasted malts and nettles. flavour is caramel, brown sugar and chocolate icing, slightly oxidised, with notes of vanilla, herbal hops and some robust notes of alcohol in the finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation. nowhere near as good as the original.

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.

sic1314 (4775) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2013
Poured deep brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of roast malt, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee. Full body, flavour of sweet caramel, roast malt. Might cellar a bottle and see how it develops after a couple of years.

luttonm (4527) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at a Seattle tasting. Dark red-black, small head. Deep aroma. Cough syrup, some artificial fruit. Barleywine notes, rich cherry. Tart, dark chocolate. Alc reasonably balanced. Interesting.

Martinus (4440) - Baarle-Nassau, 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)

Inbreak (4426) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - APR 3, 2014
03.04.2014, 0,33l bottle (#300) @ home:
Nice light brown dense creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly rich, dark malts, cognac, oak, licorice, dark sugar, dark chocolate, vanilla, burnt caramel, dark fruits, cocoa nibs. Taste is rich and very balanced, dark malts, oak, cognac, dark chocolate pudding, licorice, vanilla, caramel, dark sugar, cocoa nibs, coffee, old rope. Medium bitterness, very smooth slightly dry and syrupy mouthfeel. Very nice, but I think I remeber the regular one as much better.

Vaiz (4248) - 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.

Aniela (4207) - 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.
