Made with the most heavily peated malt in the world from the Bruichladdich distillery. Almost pitch black and opaque, small head. Furiously peated aroma, hiding the malt, licorice and dark chocolate somewhat. Very full bodied, thick mouthfeel, like fluid bread. Dark chocolate, loads of peat, lapsang souchong tea, chocolate cake, culminating in an almost endless aftertaste that also has licorice.
Alcohol varies by batch.

On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Nice! Pours black, etc. nice taste of roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, smoke, peat and liquorice. Sweet, but not too sweet. Very smooth and balanced. Definitely one I'll have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mathieuc (3317) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle split 3-way with my brother and brother-in-law on Easter dinner. Pours more brown than black with a foamy white head. Aromas of smoke, malt and general roastiness. Flavors are mostly of smoke and peated malt with a low-medium sweetness. Overall a really nice one from De Molen!

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Smoke was just too overwhelming on this one. Very well made but not very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Reynolds314 (3314) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Very strong peat smoke almost chemical in nature. Very assertive smokeyness with some dark fruits and a touch of chocolate and licorice. A bit too much peat smoke in here but still interesting.

Very smoky, rich and delicious, ashy and bitter finish, pretty good stuff.
