2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Vinous and liquor aroma with lots of chocolate and roast, just a touch of green apple really detracts from the festivities. The taste is moderately sweet, extremely low bitterness, lots of milk chocolate, and some dark fruit. Nearly flat with a chalky texture. Very green. Very disappointing.

Blæack with a big and lasting tan head. Rich roasted aroma with chocolate, licorice and ink, and hints of red wine. Sweet roasted flavour with some wood and berry notes. Great balance and a long lasting aftertaste

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
