Bottle at De Paas. Pours very dark brown with tan head that doesn’t last. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and sweet caramel with some alcohol. Flavor has same aspects with dark fruits, raisins and liqurice. Excellent beer, beaten by some of the BA versions

Opaque black beer with a short lived chocolate coloured head. Soft palate. Very light for the style. Frothy and creamy. Soft dark malt. Subtle undertone of red fruit, cherry and a little plum. Light coffee and toasted malt notes. Traces of banana and bubblegum in the finish. All very well joined up in to a light Imperial Stout.

Koelschtrinker (16789) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Stark aromatischer Malzgeruch sowie Antrunk, ebenfalls stark fallen die Röstnoten auf. Diese werden passend leicht süß angeboten und werden mit der Zeit vollmundiger. Kaffeeartiger werdend, spätestens hier merkt man, dass das Malz ein Alleinunterhalter ist.Zum Ende süßer, das Malz wird etwas schwächer, wird aber durch stärker werdende Röstigkeit ausgeglichen. Etwas mehr Abwechslung wäre schön! 11/11/11/12//11

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Intensiver malzschokoladiger und rauchiger Geruch. Süßmalziger Auftakt mit einer leicht holzigen Note. Mittig nougatschokoladig mit dezent fruchtiger Likörnote. Im Abgang sehr dicht und malzig, schokoladig, räucherig und deutlich zulegende Alkoholnote, welche eher angenehm wärmt und nicht kratzt. Fülliges und dennoch verblüffend liquides Bier. Sehr gefällig.Test vom 20.10.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Holy (837) - GERMANY - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle shared during a schedule sell. Very intense, complex collection of flavors. I could swear that it was aged in some kind of whisky/cognac barrel - intense alcohol aftertaste. Nice.

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 26, 2011
bottle brewed feb 17/18 2009 bottled mar 20 2009 opened with no pressure on the cork. pour has a dark black body but there is no head and no bubbles showing here. aroma has rich dark malt, fantastic deep chocolate, dark brown sugar, truffles, and sweet black coffee. very complex. mouth feel has incredible coating without being too heavy but there is no carbonation in this bottle. flavor does not let down either. rich malts, the best chocolate flavor in recent memory on a beer, countering sweetness, some hops still come through, and sweet coffee with minimal bitterness.

Martinus (4437) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2011
Dark brown / black colour, red glow in the light. Small tan head, light carbonation. Sweet, burned malts aroma, coffee, some liquorice, some tar and developing smoke. Flavour rather sweet, liquorice, coffee, burned malts, milk chocoloate. Some dried fruits. Ash. Rather light carbonation but full, smooth oily mouthfeel. Finish light burned malts bitter, some hops, bit sweet lingering taste, warming alcohol. Very nice.

loulan (126) - SPAIN - MAY 17, 2011
Servida en Les 4 Pedres ( Badalona) Embotellada, 33cl, lacada en rojo. Aromas a café, chocolate y regaliz. Cerveza de color negro con una textura aceitosa y un cordón fino de espuma de color beige. El sabor es dulce y amargo al mismo tiempo. Intensa amargura del chocolate, notas a café, regaliz. Buen cuerpo, bien equilibrado y bastante compleja. Una gran cerveza aunque no es de mi estilo.

phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 14, 2011
33 cl bottle, brewed in 2011. Pours black with a quickly dissipating brown head. Aroma has tar, charcoal, slightly medicinal, fresh grounded coffee, alcohol, dark chocolate, molasses, subtle hints of dried figs, dates and caramel, notes of port and fruity shiraz. Taste is insanely balanced, roast and sweetness up front, coffee, charcoal, dark dried fruits, raisins, chocolate, hints of leather. A hint of alcohol, which helps support some of the sweetness. Dry finish. The carbonation is very soft, but the hard roast and the alcohol hinders it from becoming cloying. The best non barrel aged beer I’ve had from De Molen. Really good.
