Eructoblaster (3288) - 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 (509) - 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.
