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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.
