77ships (7635) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2014
Sampled draft @ BAF 2014. Thank you! Black, little mocha head. Very boozy thick bourbon nose, light varnish, wood. Taste is thick oily liquorish, mocha, bourbon, very warming, coffee, faint smoke. Thick, rich body. Good but not the best RIS that De Molen has done.

Ibrew2or3 (8059) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 12, 2014
The 33cl bottle, with 11% ABV + bottle on date of Jan. 30th 2013 listed on the label, pours with a nice dark body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma is full with dark roasted malts, burnt malts, some chocolate, some peat and then mild bourbon booze. The taste is similar with pleasing smoothness and richness with roasted malts, dark roasted malts, some burnt malts flowing into yummy chocolate and modest peaty notes. There’s a perfect amount of malt sweetness and smooth mild bourbon sweetness to tie this thing together. This just has the right amount of everything: chocolate, dark roasted malts, peat, sweetness and bourbon. Nice!
