BOLTZ7555 (2939) - 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!

Defreni (2775) - 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.

Inbreak (2643) - 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.

armando629 (2442) - 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.
