4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bierkoning. Total black body with no trace of a head. Nose of malts, chocolate and caramel. Taste is similar, starting with nice malts and caramel and toffee. Then deep, dark chocolate. Very smooth and creamy. Then gets quite bitter and sweet. Really nice experience, as always with De Molen.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Small bottle @ home. No carbonation. Winelike mouthfeel. There is some barrel flavour present not as distinct as the other barrel aged versions which I prefer. A little carbonation on this one would have made a difference maybe...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
No head, pitch black colour with a dark red shine. Mokka-vanilla aroma. You can tate the wood and the bordeaux aftertaste. Smoked taste with a kick at the end due to the higher alcohol percentage. The beer looks somewhat flat due to the fact that there is no head at all but the taste and aroma of the beer cover this very well.

Another perfect hel and verdoemenis. Don’t know if it’s the name, but I do taste some of the bordeaux wine barrel. Started the Borefts Beer Festival with this one, and it was the best of the day.
