Inbreak (2401) - 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.

Nidaros (40) - NORWAY - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle at home, nr0862 Pours pitch black with a dense tanned head. Aroma of figs, prunes, some oak, rounded burnt notes and some alcohol. Tastes of dried dark fruits, massive taste of sweet dark malts, some oak. Medium bitterness and a silky smooth aftertaste of dried fruits and oak. Only thing holding this beer back from max score is that I would have liked to see a bit more body and a little less carbonation. A recomended brew if you can get hold of it.

Staffan47 (880) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2014
Flaska parallellt med vanliga 666. På GHs kontor med Hoffback och Isabel. Får direkt någon typ av hembryggd-vibb. Bortser man från de uppenbara doft och smakerna finns här även något svagt syrligt bär med i bilden. På det stora hela en bra bärs som har en viss kärvhet i sig som smaklökarna aldrig riktigt tycks acceptera.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. A black one, topped by a dense, dark beige head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, some alcohol notes, booze actually, and a light roasted touch. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, of the hoppy kind, as well as chocolate, coffee, some roasted malts and booze. It’s warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a soft and pleasant carbonation level. Lasting roasted and lightly boozy finish. Overall, too warming, but sure tasteful. 140207

Westchesterco (1092) - mclean, Virginia, USA - MAR 9, 2014
From a bottle at the rb tasting it is a dark brown color with a slight head. The aroma is of licorice and the taste is of coffee that resonates of licorice. It is an amazing beer!

Hoprider (105) - DENMARK - MAR 9, 2014
Black with a semi dense head. The nose is so good. So ballanced. Caramelly roasted malts, slight vanilla, dark chocolate, licorice and god knows what. The taste is equally amazing. Creamy mouthfeel and a slight burn in the end. To me this is one of the best De Molen brews I’ve had. A must try!

AgentAle (788) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Aroma is very strong and rich. Smokiness,caramel,molasses,fig,smokiness all here. Taste is a rich fruitiness with plum and raison with a roasty maltiness. A tad of alcohol bite but not much for a 10% beer.Appearance is black with a head thwt retains poorly.
