Bottled@Monks Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Quite much pitch black colour with not too much head. Aroma is roasted malts, dark dry fruits, bunch of smooth whisky, some vanilla as well as some slight wooden notes as well. Flavour is very much the same in a really pleasant balance.

omhper (23733) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2010
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Very dark brown, no head. Sweet and chocolatey. Full bodied with soft mouthfeel. Salty molasses and milk chocolate embraces you with a thick syrupy very sweet sensation. Notes of coffee, very mild woodiness. Not my favourite amongs de Molen’s dark offerings.
