Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks unusual for De Molen, but good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Complex-malty aroma with a hint of liquorice. Starts strong, complex-malty, but not too much. Well balanced malty notes, a bit oily with hints of vanille and coffee. Finish very well balanced and warming. Wonderful drinkable. A masterpiece!

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - SEP 25, 2011
18cl bottle with thanks to Doodler, much appreciated Scott! Pours almost flat with a thin, spotty and slow rising tan head. Aroma is nice with a rich cognac aroma amongst some espresso and light chocolate. Flavor follows suit, with more cognac flavor and lesser notes of sweet milk chocolate and espresso. A better compliment to the base beer on this one than the Wild Turkey.

suprchunk (2322) - Crestview, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2011
Black, thin tan head. No lacing left behind, as if there was something to produce one anyway. Big roasted aroma, coffee, dark chocolate. Big chocolate taste, dry alcohol presence. Mostly dark chocolate and coffee. Awesome beer. Can’t wait to have more.

Tweeke (37) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2011
Draft at borefts. A bit too much of a good thing, the cognac is strong in this one. This results in a rather ’boozy’ taste, the alcohol isn’t hidden too well. Apart from that it is an interesting and enjoyable beer that really deserves the name its been given. Very sweet (just like the normal Hel & Verdoemenis).

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2011 On draft at Borefts Beer Festival, 2011 vintage. Very dark appearance, small head. Complex nose of malts, chocolate, liquor. Very alcoholic flavor, cognac dominance. Well brewed and complex, but cognac is just totally not my thing.

180 ml bottle. Great aroma of bitter coffee and roasted malt. Taste however was a bit too much of the bitter coffee. Aftertaste didn’t make me want to take another zip. Although I normally like this style, this was a bit too much for me. Maybe I didn’t preserve him like I should have.

Dark brown with a tiny tan head. Coffee with malty tones. Malt, hops and coffee. Full body with a long, balanced bitter-sweet aftertaste.
