3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle [11% abv as per label]. Pitch black colour with late awakening, small, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, brown-ochre head. Intense whiskey dominated aroma burns in the eyes; lots of TCP, band aid, wood, leather, peat and the like; proper beer flavours can hardly be explored. Taste is heavy, earthly, peaty, fusty, frowsty, dark malty notes with a touch of coffee shine through here and there; in the finish with more settled whiskey notes - peat, leather, tar. Sadly again one of those overdone BA wipe-out beers. In this case the beer is simply a flavour carrier for the whiskey whereas IMO ideally the whiskey should accentuate the beer flavours in a complementary way.

Probado en Animal de Madrid. Cerveza de color oscuro, con una espuma beige de persistencia media. Sabor marcado a madera, turba y chocolate amargo. Algo excesiva me gustó más la versión original. Retrogusto largo, con toques de madera y humo.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2012 - Bottled 5 sept. 2012
- Where : Hopduvel Ghent - Belgium
-First impression : The woody casky character - smelt instantly after opening & before pouring - is just amazing.
- Taste : These olfactory dynamics transpond perfectly when poured. Reminds me of Vienna Moccha coffees. Black malts with a hint of vanilla, shortly followed by a sense of wood and cask - a taste remaining in the mouth for a nice amount of time. Exquisite combination of olfactory and gustatory characteristics. Everything adds-up perfectly in this beer!
-Looks : Beautiful dark body but with small head of foam
-Conclusion : Excellent barrel aged stout! One of my all time favourites of The Molen!

Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours a pitch black beer with a chocolate head. The aroma is malt, peat, smoke and wood. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with peat. Overall an average beer.

Tap, pours a nice black, with a nice froathy head, aroma is a nice dark roasty, maybe a little bit of whiskey/scotchy. The flavour is a nice roasty.petty, the flavour of the barrel aging as it warms and becomes some what rough around the edges. Overall, pretty decent.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bierkompass. Pitch black beer with a small brown head. Oily peat and whisky aroma, hay, really roasted, prunes, smoked, tar, licorice notes, soot, coffee. Salty peat flavor, leather, heavy roasted, licorice, tar, soot, whisky, coffee, hugely roasted, ash, cigarette notes. Almost too heavy and with peat all over it. The base is a lovely beer but this version is not the best.
