Bottle from a friend. Boozy smell with a strong alcoholic warmth. Sweet taste with caramel, chocolate and very light notes from the barrel aging. The taste isn’t as boozy as the taste. Almost no carbonation.

Abijen (1961) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2013
Pours a pitch black beer with a not very long lasting brown head. Smells incredible. Heavy chocolate, vanilla, some fruity and alcohol. Tastes vanilla, smooth, chocolate and coffee. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture. Just an incredible brew.

Bottle. 12.0%. Bottled June 08 2010. Bottle no. 21. Pours almost black. No head. Dusty, sweetish aroma. Dark fruits, malt. Hints of vanilla and wood as it warms. Flavour is sweetish and roasted with notes of coffee and dark fruits. Finish is almost sugary, with dark fruits, cold coffee and a hint of tobacco smoke. Has an alcohol burn, but not matching the high %; well-balanced. Overall good; flavour is better than aroma. Would have been nice with a head. 15.12.13.

tricksta_p (2097) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2013
Pours a frightening black void with a small brown head. Aroma of plum, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, raisins, bourbon. Thick oily mouthfeel. I’ve had better BA’s, but still this is a great brew.

Sample at Hel en Verdoemenis tasting
Tasted a fresh one from 2013 and an aged one from 2009. I’ll use the fresh one for the ratings score. Aroma is bourbon, after eight, vanilla and wood. Taste also has some roasted malts and coffee. Medium dry. Full body, nice soft carbonation.

The aged version is very portlike and very smooth, great beer for aging!

330 ml bottle, bottled Jan 28 2013. Dark pour with minimal head. Carbonation on the low side. Aroma of ashes, chocolate, coffee, booze. Ok. Tastes quite a bit better, boozy chocolate, smooth. Long finish. Great beer.

Not the best de molen IRS I had but still very good. Choclate and espresso dominate in the flavor and the bourbon is very much present.

alexsdad06 (7107) - Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Bottle sample from notes (Jackie o’s tasting). Pours a very dark brown to black with a small tan head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, char, whiskey notes, wood, and some dark fruit. Boozy at times, but this was solid.

Pours very dark with hardly a head. Aroma of dark fruit and roasted malts. Flavor of coffee roasted malts, caramel and dark chocolate. Excellent contribution of the bourbon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
