Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2011
Bottle at Craig’s. A black beer with a lacy tan head. Aroma of coffee, toffee and molasses. Thick creamy mouth-feel with flavours of caramel, dark chocolate and roasted barley. Some yeast and oak also. Mild carbonation. Superb!

BenH (2445) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2011
Big thanks to Bullit for bringing this to CGarvie’s tasting. Wow! Aroma or coffee, toffee, dried fruits and chocolate. Taste is toasty with some chocolate and mild smoke. Beautiful finish, well balanced and not too sweet.

Hoprider (105) - DENMARK - JUL 11, 2011
Pours very dark brown with a nice dark tan head. Aromas of licorice, coffee, chocolate and a sweet roasted malt profile. Really good nose here. The mouthfeel is creamy with a very ballanced flavor profile. Sweetness all in great mix with ashy and malty notes. Creamy palate and a lingering aftertaste makes this H&V 666 devilishly awsome.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2011
Pours a dark brown, almost black color with mahogany edges and half finger off white head that slowly fades into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Deep roasted, smokey aroma thats bursting with chocolate malt, oatmeal, toffee and coffee bean. Although it’s very roasty it doesn’t smell acrid or burnt. Just lots of luscious dark malt. Full bodied with a good balance of roast and sweet malt. Lots of dark chocolate, toast, hazelnut, coffee/espresso bean. Well balanced with lots of silky chocolate countering the roasted notes. Slightly smokey but never abrasive or acrid. The abv is well masked with subtle alcohol flavor and little heat. Dry finish.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Pouring at the grand tasting at RBSG in Philly. Pours a deep black with brown highlights and a thin white head. Smoky roast, bourbon, roast and chocolate. Big and roasty, and surprisingly not heavy on the bourbon, nice wood and chocolate notes. Roast, chocolate, smooth woody touches of bourbon and toast. Very nice to see a bourbon aged beer that doesn’t t overpowered by the bourbon aspect.

dutchbeerpages (1652) - Wilnis, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2011
An aroma that has everything: liquorice, coffee, after dinner alcoholic drinks. Almost pitchblack with a light red rim. The first sip starts at the tongue and ends in the tip of your toes. The chocolate tones come to surface when it warms up, like some left over moccha coffee that has gone cold. Not my favorite H&V, but another true De Molen beer.
