yngwie (14669) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle, 190/600, 18cl, at Patricks. A beer without head, just some brown bubbles, a few. Oily, black body. Loads of coffee on the nose, a solid dose of alcohol too. Chocolate and bonfire blends in. Very oily in the mouth, but not thick, quite flat. Warming and dry as well. The flavor is burnt, with lots of coffee and chocolate, some sugary sweetness and a good dash of alcohol. Some wine notes too. Lasting finish with a good alcohol burn and a solid coffee flavor. A wonderful one, not a beer to drink a lot of, but a nip size bottle is just fine. 101110

Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Pours a pitch black beer with a beige head. The aroma is roasted, licorice, coffee, wood and vanilla. The flavor is close to the nose. The palate is roasted with some sweetness. Overall a really good beer.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2010
De molen hell and damnation Bordeaux barrel. Small nip bottle consumed at de molen... Pours a still dark portlike stout pour with a lighter brown fringe and a quickly dissipating head that evolves to non- existence... Sweet anise, woody sweet, and toffee notes similar to misto overall from an aroma perspective with light red fruit surfacing softly... Tastes more woody with a spiciness and a pervading sense of smokiness. Lighter bodied wine notes with an abundance of tart fruitiness not necessarily resembling red wine. Some booziness in the finish and a tad thin. 8/4/7/3/15

altonbrownd (3680) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 27, 2010
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.

ErikvW (10) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2010
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...

Barrelbelly (658) - BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2010
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.
