oppear (112) - Tallinn, - JUN 16, 2013
Black and without a top. this smells good, sweet, roasty and lemon. The awkward nose promises things to come, so the taste, first up was lemon, then the smoke (being bitter and chocolate all the way). But what was disturbing was the grapefruit-celery note that hits after. The first part of this beer is good but the ending taste is weird, unpleasantly wind’s itself towards the end, but not totally unlikeable. The beer is also rather oily, complex and a mouthful. Good but difficult.

johndoughty (4986) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Bottle. Black with a small head. Slight chocolate flavour. Smoooth and easy to drink considering its considerable strength. Powerful but friendly.

hman43 (1156) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - SEP 9, 2016
It pours jet black with a dark brown head. Although the head is small, the head retention is quite good. There are aromas of dark chocolate and coffee. The initial flavors are sweet with chocolate, and then the bitterness of coffee and roast takes over. It has a full body with strong alcohol warming. Overall, this is a malt driven strong stout with minimal hops noticeable.

Jesper86 (36) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2016 Very dark intense colour. Not much foam. Beautiful dark smell with a lot of cacao, some caramel, some roast. Nice subtle carbonisation. Sweetness is far from overdone and only subtle. A lot of dark cacao. Caramel, coffee, some raisins, a little rye. Excellent balance. Fantastic stuff.

Wodanson (5) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2016 does not count
Pours thick and black with a thin tan head. Smells of dark malts and dried fruits. Tastes slightly of coffee, followed by rich dried fruits and chocolately malts. Overall a very well made stout, fairly balanced and has great mouth feel. Another great beer from De Molen.
