Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2010
Bottle 18 cl. Pours pitch black with a light brown head. Sweet aroma of chocolate and a little vanilla. Quite full-bodied, very dark malts but never burned really, more chocolatey with distinct sweet Borbon accents - and licorice allsorts. Warming alcohol finish and a perfect balance. I dig Bourbon and I dig this beer. Wonderful. 070510

omhper (23483) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2010
Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Very black, dark brown head. Huge milk chocolate aroma. Sweet and sofrt with creamy milk chocolate and bourbon slowly growing into the picture. Not really complex as such, but the flavour intensity, the seemlessness and the softness grabs me by the tonsils and makes this beer stand out even in the toughest of crowds.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2012 7th May 2010.
Copenhagen Beer Festival. Very dark brown beer. Soft dry palate. Rich malt, a little peat and coffee. A little bourbon as well. Just a tiny bit of hop at the end. Drinks like 8% abv. Very nice! Original rating 3.8

28th August 2010
Opaque black beer, tiny tan head. Marmite and oak on the nose. Light soft palate, semi dry. Aniseed licorice and slightly bitter dark malt. Offset by vanilla oak and semi sweet whisky. Trace of chocolate. Finishes soft. Much better than I rated at CPH 2010. Another top notch dark beer from De Molen.
