c0fein (242) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 24, 2014
330ml bottle @ home. From Saveur Biere.

Dark stuff with small beige foam. Aroma of barn and some salty liquorice. Intensive strong and smooth taste. Excellent beer and maybe best of De Molen so far.

EdwinLitzau (320) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2014
Zwarte kleur, redelijke schuimkraag. Ruikt lekker, chocolade., beetje rokerig. Smaakt fantastisch, vrij zoet, redelijk bitter. Topper.

kermis (5751) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours near black with a ring beige head. Aroma of leather, soy, rubber. Flavour is light heavy sweet and bitter. Loads more coming out in the palate - milk chocolate, roast, fudge, light peaty whiskey, leather, overripe dark fruits. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Real good.

Hermod (3459) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2014
33cl bottle. Bottled Jan30th 2013. Pitch black, brown head. Sweet bourbon aroma, vanilla, peat, licorice, all coming together nicely. Amazing aroma, I could sniff this all night. Flavor has vanilla, sweetness, licorice, and peaty notes. Peat quite strong towards finish. Incredibly smooth. Finish lasts forever with vanilla and roasted malty, coffee notes. Absolutely amazing.

caesar (5323) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2013
Bottled, dated Jan 30th 2013, large sample. Dark color, short creamy brown head. Aroma of peat, chocolate, coffee, roast, leather, wood, hint of vanilla. Some sweetness in taste, quite bitter. Slight dry of the peat, but backed up with plenty of sweetness as well and some boozy alcohol. The bourbon itself is not that present (anymore), but it does balance out the loads of peat of the original beer. Decent balance, good beer.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2014 Pours a disturbing black with a small tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits, toffee, some coffee. Lots of roasted malts, vanilla and coffee in the aftertaste. A touch of smoked also to this wonderful brew.

DutchMark (194) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2013
Nice one! I am not a big fan of srong smoked flavor. This one has the smokiness but it is a subtle presence. The bourbon is nice. Not too sweet and not too boozy. Overall a very well balanced stout.

Dark brown colour with a tiny frothy tan head. Oat cookies, roasted malt and mild peat in the aroma. Roasted malt, Bourbon, vanilla sweetness and some liquorice in the flavour. Quite smooth and drinkable... after all it’s 11%. Nice Bourbon touch.
