2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2012 Lots of similarities in De Molen’s brews...good thing they have a good thing! This one, unfortunately was way heavy on the ashtray. Charcoal pour with a small latte head. Loads of peat, char, soot, burnt wood, smoke, and soot. Yes, I used soot twice. Hints of brownie batter, chocolate, and vanilla. Just hard to find the other qualities. Not very good.

Bottled. Pours black in colour with a tan head. Burnt wood, licorice and whiskey in aroma. More burnt wood, ash and some coffee in taste. Also some vanilla in aftertaste. Smooth and enjoyable.

bottle, black black pour, zero head. light to medium peat in the nose, roasted malts with hint of choclate, Immediate heavy peat in the flavor. light black licorice gets overpowered by the scotch peatiness. Chocolate comes through as it warms. good stuff

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours black as night with a fuming head that lingers like a fresh memory. Aromas of heavily peated malt with a touch of candy rock. I would have guessed this was Belgian just from the aroma alone. Medium full nectar with mild liquid carbonation. Mild to moderate sugar levels on this with a heavy smoked peat bill. Extreme in nature, like no beer I’ve had before. I drink scotch from Isaly for a reason, the heavy peat and smoke profiles. This brew is that. Iodine is on the finish sliding down with the sugary maltiness. It leaves a tingling feeling on my tongue. No different from drinking a campfire. You gotta try this brew. Bottle says good for for 25 years. Bamn!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at The White Horse on Parsons Green. Black pour, average tan creamy/frothy head. Oily heavy roast aroma, herbal and quite smokey. Taste follows, more alcohol, a bit of kerosene and anise - lovely and balanced. Average body, almost watery for an imperial stout, mild carbonation, longish burnt treacle herbal boozy finish. Love it, nice and smokey.

330mL bottle to tasting glass
Aromas of smoky peat, coffee, burnt malt, and light alcohol. The colour us dark brown and the head is creamy and light brown. The taste is very smoky and the coffee aroma comes through too. Nice bitterness in the end. The palate is full bodied and thick with a light alcohol burn.
