Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Great look. Potent nose hints of peanut butter fudge and brownie. Wonderful tasting. Dessert-like. Perfectly balanced. Mainly base beer character, until the 30+ second finish, where the barrels come into play and the beer showcases notes of whiskey and espresso bean. Again, the really long finish is what makes the beer special. De Molen makes the best stouts in the world. His beers are also among the most cellar worthy in the world.

Duft: meget kraftig duft af vanilje, kakao. ege, bourbon, lidt soja duft. Smag: meget stor og smagfuld øl. meget sød. Brandt malt. alt for lidt co2 til min smag.

180 ml bottle @ home. 2009 vintage bottled in 2010. Pours a thick oily pitch black fluid with no head at all. Intense aroma with lots of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, sweet syrup. Taste is silky smooth with bourbon, roasted malts, chocolate and caramel. Nice thick mouthfeel. Really good!

Backlog. Bottle nr. 767. Tried this right when they came from the brewery, the bottles were definitely too young and overpowering, this is a beer for aging.

worldbeertaste (1548) - AUSTRIA - FEB 14, 2014
One year old bottle. Deep dark brown almost black if bit for a slight red tint and almost no head to speak of. Deep smell of malt, with lots of black roast, coffee and burnt malt. The smell of oak and bourbon is clearly present but softened by the clear chocolate. Medium to full oily body. The alcohol is present but already subdued. Dark bitter chocolate, berry, and soft roast that finished with some alcohol warmness, vanilla, caramel, and lots of roasted malt. Leaving the mouth as if I just had a shot.

Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of Zer0. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head. Aroma is fresh bourbon, boozy notes and caramel. Not too much extraordinary in the aroma going on. Flavor is fairly bitter, dark sugar and caramel going on. Bourbon is definitely noticed in the flavor, giving some sweetness. Mouthfeel is cloying, thick. Very nice variation.
