Bottle, many thanks to Kermis for helping me slay this H&V tick. Opaque black pour with rich creamy brown foam. Aroma of whisky, really rich chocolaty aromas, a bit smoky, anise aromas, roasty. Taste is rich, tons of chocolate, nice spirit flavors. Palate is chewy, sweet but with good carbonation to cut through. Super tasty.

PhillyCraft (4534) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle smuggled from Netherlands as a gift care of Kermis shared with Jeano. Pours sinful black with small head that didn’t hang around for too long. Notes of bakers chocolate, rich barrel, caramel, tons of licorice and an impressive malt/hop bill. Has some nice bitterness mixed into the decadent roasty dark notes. Long lasting and warming in the chest. Cheech ahh

Martinus (4285) - 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)

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.

Aniela (4206) - 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.

Vaiz (4052) - 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.
