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!

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.

gyllenbock (5031) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm. Black with a minimal tan head. Aroma and taste of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, wood, port, licorice and some light notes of berries. The body was thick. The finish was long and with warming alcohol. A pleasant one.

laiti (5970) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
33 cl bottle @ tiong, bottle #0022?
Vertical with 666
Aroma is sweet with oat, nuts and whisky tones; peat and some smoke. Also hints of hay. More stale than 666. Flavour is sweet with whisky, woody tones, peat and licorice. Also some salmiac. Pleasant, better than 666. More stinging and aggressive though.

Habanero (2753) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2013
Bottled. Pours opaque black with a small, beige head, leaving a fair lacing. Aroma of whiskey, roasted malt, plums, vanilla and dark chocolate. Sweet flavor that ends up with a little malt bitterness and alcohol. Full bodied, oily texture and soft carb. A great impy.

Borresteijn (4927) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Molen Beershop. Black colour, light-brown head. Aroma of loads of booze in the beginning, bourbon, sweet soy sauce, hard roasted - ashy - malts, molasses, coffee, chocolate. Flavour is sweet, less boozy than expected apart from the slight burn in the finish, bourbon, oak, soy sauce, molasses, coffee, hard roasted malts, firm bitter roasted malts in the finish. Full-bodied. Good, just a touch from great. This one really needs to mellow out a bit more imho, although I usually like RIS’s fresh.
