ciocanelu (71) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - SEP 20, 2014
Very complex brew. You can really taste the different barrels. First some fruitiness from the port barrel, then you get some sweet bourbon notes and in the finish lots of dark, bitter chocolate. Another excellent beer from De Molen!

darrennelson12 (414) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
In bottle; aroma of smoke, wine and bourbon. Taste very similar with the same notes, though the alcohol comes through .. wasn’t really a fan of this one ...

czar (4436) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
pours unclear very dark brown, red tint, with a very nice creamy beige artly demonstrating excellent retention and very nice lacing for such an abv combined with barrel-ageing. dense milk and bitter chocolate, strong yet well integrated red wine, fragrant coffee, very nice red fruitiness - probably enhanced by bordeaux-ageing, dusty lactose - never cloying, fairly warming, completed and sealed by a vanilla kiss. light carbonation, medium to full body - oily, astringent woodiness and assertive earthy-gently resinous finish. b-day beer, and i fell in love with it.

rodenbach99 (3161) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 6, 2014
Bouteille de 330ml. embouteillée le 19 novembre 2013. Une robe presque noire avec une mousse brune peu durable. Un premier nez d’alcool et de whiskey, ensuite c’est plus intéressant avec du rôti et du chocolat. La bouche a beaucoup de gaz carbonique, ça pique la langue. Les saveurs de vin rouge, de chocolat et de whiskey s’entremêlent.

Bijna zwarte kleur met een volle lichtbruine kraag. Ruikt vanille, crème, koffie. Smaakt koffie, vanille, crème. Beetje alcohol. Bitterzoete afdronk.

Pours a dark brown beer with a big tan head. Smells alcohol, bit sour, roasted, bourbon. Tastes bourbon, alcohol, roasted and coffee. Tastes much stronger then 11%. Thick body, low carbo and a sticky texture.
