maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle cheers to Ranga Jackson. Pours thick as the night black with a small, densely coating khaki head. Heavy spotted lacing and good retention. Nose is quite smokey upon first sniff. As it warms it begins to open up with notes of light black cherry, aniseed, roasted coffee, touch of sweet peat - almost hickory smoke. Taste consumes you. Very well balanced for such a complex beer. Wow. The smokiness sits behind everything giving that little bit extra depth. Loads of powdered, heavily dark chocolate - almost salty and fills out the palate quite substantially leaving a dryness on the finish. Molasses/liquorice comes through with light raisin sweetness. Fantastic beer. No heat whatsoever. Drinks superbly. Would love to have it again

Habanero (3272) - 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.

luttonm (3266) - 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.

kerenmk (3264) - 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.

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 (2969) - 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!

Inbreak (2881) - 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.

Defreni (2845) - 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.
