jbeatty (1104) - New York, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle, 12/31/2013. Pours black, creamy light tan head, soapy ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is earthy dark chocolate, mild roast, dark fruit, berries, cherry licorice blending with sweet vinous notes and mild bourbon in the finish. Taste is dark bitter roast, coffee, chocolate, licorice, boozy bourbon with subtle vinous finish. Medium body. Really interesting, tasty blend.

Eructoblaster (3215) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle - 330ml. Opaque black body with an average, brown foamy head. Fantastic, complex malty/hoppy aroma with Bourbon, chocolate, oaky, caramel, and fruity hints. Alcohol is not agressive. Its robust, well balanced taste carries woody, licorice, plummy, and roasty notes. Ends with a long, strong, warming, roasty finish. Another home run for De Molen!

Fluxing (455) - POLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Warka butelkowana 19.11.2013. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. Piana bardzo obfita, ale szybko opada do grubej obraczki. W aromacie kawa, palonosc, gorzka i mleczna czekolada, duzo czerwonego wina, lekka wanilia i suche drewno, sporo owocow, bardzo przyjemny aromat. W odczuciu bardzo geste, oleiste, a nawet kisielowate, bardzo gladkie, nisko wysycone. W smaku na pierwszym planie nuty suchego drewna i zielonych, kwaskowatych lisci, lodyg, dalej kawa, palonosc, czekolada, kawa zbozowa, sporo wisni, delikatna wanilia i sporo alkoholu, na szczescie bardziej rozgrzewajacego niz palacego czy gryzacego. Goryczka srednia, ziemista i alkoholowa.

EvilCat (98) - FRANCE - MAR 6, 2015
Bouteille. Robe opaque noir, mousse beige crémeuse et tenace. Nez profond, intense de café aux notes vanillées et boisées. Bouche capiteuse et crémeuse, longue de café , de caramel et de vanille. Pointe d’acidité sur une final largement amère. Alcool bien présent sur l’expiration finale. "Faut reconnaître c’est du brutal"

GothGargoyle (1536) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 21, 2015
Deep dark brown with a good light chocolate head. Aroma is bourbon, whiskey, chocolate, wood, roasty coffee, dates, hint of leather, fig. Full bodied, velvety mouthfeel, well balanced palate with some sweetness offset by roasty notes and a touch of smooth booze on the finish. Taste is bourbon, chocolate, dates, figs, molasses, whiskey, hint of coffee. Delicious, smooth and warming.

Drank with Kaspar at home 11-12-2014. Really good beer. Excellent smell. Very rich. The beer is thick and soft: perfect mouthfeel. The beer has a complex taste. Much coffee but many other hints. The taste evolves really nice in the mouth. Very good beer.

pkomar (207) - Poznan, POLAND - FEB 4, 2015
Very nice, strong aroma. Chocolate and a bit of vanilla at first. Dried plums, coffee, roasted malts everywhere. Chocolate liquor. Pours jet black with tan coloured head, leaving nice lacing. Taste is very complex. All hinst from aroma burst through the flavour. Solid, yet not overwhelming bitterness is adding a sharp feeling, yet it’s a very well balanced beer. Great one for sure.
