Half proefglaasje op de 24 uurs van Maastricht. Zwarte kleur, goede kraag. Ruikt en smaakt hemels. Complex, cognac, whiskey, hout. Heel goed.

Alengrin (975) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Specialty version of the renowned Hel & Verdoemenis, wood-aged. Sticky beige head, black colour; complex, powerful and appealing aroma of coffee, fondant, toasted bread, dried plums, cognac, caramel; thick malty taste, chocolatey, soft carbonation, strong and assertive roasted bitterness, very mouth-filling, oily, with warming, brandy-like alcohol in the finish that never becomes disturbing. Very big, very well-balanced, very exciting Molen beer.

brystmar (1234) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle of b3 thanks to kraddel. Pitch black pour sprouts tan head, leaves some lace on my glass.

Aroma of caramel, deeply roasted malts, burnt sugars, booze, black licorice. Smooth and creamy body delivers the deliciousness to my palate. Decadent; boozy warmth massages my throat as I swallow. Really good.

rxeight (1278) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2014
12oz bottle, another thanks to Erik, my euro hookup. Deep dark brown. Subtile cognac aroma. Taste is cognac, dry oak, euro malt. Very low sweetness. Dry finish. Smooth with no heat. Quite good, although not sure if I’d put it in the top 100.

Pours black like oil with tan head, but not much. Wood (oak?), cognac, chocolate, and some roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet and malty.
