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!

Deep smokey aroma. Black with small brown head. The taste is also very smokey with salty liquorice & black chocolate. Medium body, oily texture & low carbonation.

Tasted at the 4th BBF @ De Molen. Black pour. Aroma full of peat, iodine, roasty, islay whiskey. Thick full body with spices, a bit sharp and slightly off balance, yet very powerful and very nice to drink.

bierkoning (10396) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2012
Tap @ Borefts 2012. Deep dark brown color. Peat totally pushing away all other aromas. Malty sweet flavor. Initial chocolate challenged and beaten by the peat, that lingers on and dominates the aftertaste. World class!
