PotjeBier (1732) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2010
On tap @ Tilburgs BF (26 June 2010). Black, with hardly any head and little carbonation. Aroma is strong bourbon whiskey, wood, charcoal, roast, vanilla/creme brulee, hints of dried fruit. Flavor is sweet malty, dried fruit, a hint of sourness. Strong alcohol feel, but still medium bodied. Long finish with lots of wood, vanilla and some bitterness. Definitely the best beer of the festival and I’m glad I still have a bottle of this waiting for me.

Bottle # 2336. Pours dark brown/black, with just a hint of a head. Aroma is vanilla, bourbon, malt, wood, and dark fruit. Flavor is bourbon, chocolate, wood, vanilla, dark fruit, roasted malt, and some alcohol. Low carbonation, but there is some. Awesome stuff.

worldbeertaste (1670) - 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.

artmcd8 (1653) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle thanks to beerman6686. Aroma of bourbon and toffee. Pours black with no head. Oily texture. Some heat numbs the tongue. Light light carb.

SlackerMads (1651) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle, bottled in January 2013. Black with a medium sized creamy beige head. Sweet chocolate, vanilla and bourbon in the nose. Same things in the flavour with some light burnt/charcoal notes. Fat and creamy texture. Sweet with some light roasted bitterness, but overall sweet and sticky. Good stuff when in the mood for sweet and heavy.

Woof, what a great smell. Slightly alcholic. Looks great, pitch black but with a nice red top. First sip was 15 minutes ago and the aftertaste is still lingering. Really drink this at 15 degrees. Dark/pure chocolate but the buttery kind. Ends with red fruit/forest fruit, cherry. Exceptional.

Abio (1616) - Waasland, BELGIUM - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle 628 of 2483 bottles (18cl). Pours out black, a very small head, just a lace stays. Very heavy roasted smell, some tobacco and lots of coffee. Also some wood. Pretty nice smell. Roasted coffee and chocolate taste, sweet-bitter. Nice cacao inside. something a little sweet comes up, pretty good taste, but so sad there is almost no carbonation. I don’t like flat beers, I need some bubbles inside. So that costs some points. Put some air inside, and you got yourself another top-beer!

As usual supplied by MesandSim at the epic 1000th beer tasting they hosted for me. And as usual, De Molen deliver big style. Black with a healthy tan head. Aroma is amazing, vanilla, wood, chocolate, deep deep pant wetting sweet aroma. Bourbon is clearly evident in the flavour. Very special.
