UPDATED: FEB 20, 2016 Deep dark, almost black with thin brown head. Aroma.. intense roasted malts, chocolate, bit dried fruits, some ripe fruits I would say peach, licorice.. this time too much licorice for me. Alcohol quite noticeable. Sweet with bitter warming finish. Nice composition

Inoven (183) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2016
Flesje gedeeld met familie. Donkerbruin bier met weinig schuim. Aroma is houtig en caramelachtig. Smaak is caramelachtig, chocolade-achtig, zoet en rokerig. Nasmaak is iets hoppig.

mariuspoenari (1211) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 31, 2016
33cl bottle, 1 year old. Dark brown pour with a thin beige head. Smells of chocolate, cocoa, cherries, figs, dates and cognac. Bitter, crisp, with notes of sour cherries, green hops, chocolate, subtle roasted coffee, whiskey and roasted malts. Smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation and a sticky bitter-sweet aftertaste.

yumyum (221) - barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2016
Based upon a 2011 bottle (enjoyed May 2016). Have had before relatively fresh and thought it was good. Aged bottle was an eye opener. Really enjoyed it. Minimal head but great mouthfeel and flavour. Really enjoyable

fkoolen (862) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2016 Bottle at home. Pours pitch black, no head just some brown bubbles. Rich chocolate and milky coffee in the nose and taste, lightly bitter and alcoholic in the finish. Aftertaste is long, with coffee and chocolate again. Watery-medium body, low-absent carbonation. Bit of a letdown tbh.

guma44 (7) - - MAY 13, 2016 does not count
Almost no head. Smell of dark grains, a bit of chocolate and coffee. Overwhelming smell of dark roasted bread crust. A bit too much alkohol in smell. In taste the same. Overall good and drinkable RIS.

anstei (965) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 29, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of Benzai during EuroSwap 1/2016. Sweet aroma, almost like a sweet or milk stout. Slightly boozy, but warming and thus not irritating at all. A bit lactic. Not quite as overwhelming as I feared, pleasant to drink for such a heavy beer.

ALIBALI (346) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - APR 29, 2016
Kräftige nordisch kühle Dämpfe steigen einem in die Nase. Rauch&Röstverdammnis!!! Der Schluck dann anders als vermutet, umschmeichelt er doch erst durch eine etwas "vorgegaukelte" Süße den Gaumen. Ab dann gehts aber klassisch durchgeknallt zur Sache. Extrem herb, klar, angenehm alkoholisch und höllisch Schokoheavy. Der Nachhall wie bei solch einem Kaliber zu erwarten, LAAAANG & äußerst befriedigend. Heute wird noch ne BA Variante getestet. Yippie!!! 0,33l Flasche/ca.3,50 direkt von der DE MOLEN BRAUEREI.

Bottle, pours black with a tan head. Lots of chocolate, dark bread, (c)old coffee, mocha, molasses, citrus leaves, mint. Sweet and quite bitter, boozy, full bodied. Very nice.
