bytemesis (5175) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle thanks to MrH! Pours pitch black with a medium brown creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malt, coffee, licorice, bourbon. Flavor is the same, medium sweet and light light bitterness. Medium plus body, creamy mouthfeel. Some warming on the finish, but not bad at all for ABV. Nice beer.

Beermack (725) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 7, 2013
33cl bottle from Mikkeller & Friends bottleshop. Black pour with lovely mocha head that goes the distance. Lovely dark fruits and licorice on the nose - touches of coffee, slightly fruity and vanilla-driven whiskey notes in there too. Smooth vanilla-heavy whiskey in the taste, big roasted malt, plums, figs, dark chocolate, light roast coffee, more licorice, big brown sugar. Tiny touch of booze. Full bodied and velvety. A bit of an earthy hop bite to finish, lingering fruity whiskey and dark fruits. Great stuff.

Martinus (4280) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2013
Clear black colour, red hue, firm tan head. Aroma of whisky, bourbon, vanilla, wood, mocha coffee, light chocolate. Light woody flavour, dark chocolate, liquorice, bourbon-like whisky. Thick creamy body, finish bourbon, wood, alcohol, chocolate, hint of tar. Very smooth and balanced, yet still quite bold flavours. Definitely a beer that’s defending the De Molen grandeur in style.
(From 33cL bottle @ home. Bottle 0202. Thanks for the bottle, SecretSinterklaas, aka biersint)
