This is black liquid gold. One of my all time favorites from de molen. Complex flavour and a long lingering aftertaste .

weihenweizen (3032) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAR 13, 2016
Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle, bottled on February 29 2012, poured into a snifter. Black with small beige head. Aroma is anise, medium/thick body, lower carbonation, and a little lacing. Taste is dark chocolate, old coffee, dark malt, some anise, and dry finish. Alcohol is well covered, but not for me.

Quite black with no head. Complex tastes of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some wood. Heavy body, great smooth carbonation and a lasting aftertaste of sweet chocolate. Another superb IS

Bamsen78 (4927) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2016
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy but stable tan head. Clear aroma of coffee, roast, malt and chocolate, with notes of fruit. Bitter, roasty flavour with notes of dark chocolate and coffee and sweetish touches of malt and caramel. Estery and hoppy hints. Roasty and coffee like aftertaste with slightly fruity hints. Low to medium carbonation. Damn good. Verdoemt goed. :-)

brewtalita (222) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 17, 2016
Pitch black, tan creamy head. Aroma of cocoa powder, dried fruit and high ester content (strange, maybe old batch? - need to re-rate this soon). Palate massive, low carbonation. Taste of prunes and raisins, dark chocolate and pralines in finish. Long lasting neutral bitterness. Surprisingly fruity and light in color to me for a RIS. Overall mixed impressions. Somewhere deep down is decent beer but there are some issues with estery taste.
