maneliquor (3483) - 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

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 (3014) - 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 (2983) - 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.
