4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared at tasting. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is peaty, chocolate, burnt malt, coffee. The peat comes out nicely in the flavour, not overpoweringly so as can be the case with some BA beers. Heavy sweet and bitter with roast, chocolate and licorice going into the finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 Bottle from Bierkompass.
Pours dark brown/almost black with with a thick brown head that lays down to rest as a thin layer of tiny, tiny bubbles. Quite lively carbonation.
Aroma is smokey, like smoked tea and peat, leathery with some sweetness and alcohol, some faint raisins as well. Yum!
A good deal of roasted malt in taste as well as smoke, dark bitter chocolate, liquorice, some slight sour notes. A slight alcohol sensation at the end.
Thick mouth feel, high carbonation and a bitter after taste.
One of my favourites from De Molen!

Pours very lively - black with a tan head. Jizzled everywhere. Aroma is massive - peat, alcohol, rich chocolate malt. Perhaps a little too carbed in the mouth. Flavours of chocolate, peat, sweet chocolate and alcohol burn. It’s intense and wonderful, and fabulous. I love this beer.
