2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Backlog rating remembered this as one of the most horrible beers of the molen ever. Clear copper colour, weird spices, malts, caramel, kardamon, cinnamon, weird spiced spices. Very weird taste. Bad bad beer

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml (Celle, Riga)
Woh, smells of milk powder or evaporated milk, some horlicks. Not what I want or expect from a beer. Some odd sweet smokiness too. Anna’s was a little sourer. Nice red, quite hazy, brief head. Smooth sweet palate. Taste is odd, sweetish, a little sour, a hint of smoke. Fish?!?!? Nope, that’s where I draw the line. Some alcohol too. That’s a total mess all over. Nope.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 75cl, nearly 2 y.o. Pours tea with orange. Thin head that turns into some nice lacing. Aroma is sour, a bit like the aroma of Lief and Leed- not sure if this was intended, not disturbing at all but quite unexpected. No herbs, vanilla and spices in the aroma is a quite of dissapointment. Taste is very malty, caramel, sweety with caraway/herbal notes and spicy and softly sour finish. Cannot feel any vanilla. The aftertaste build of spicy feeling. Alcohol is well hidden. Very enjoyable and quite drinkable. Good but not ground-breaking stuff. A regular good job from De Molen.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Red color with small head. Aroma is very much vanilla and spices, cardamom. A bit of the caraway probably as well. Dark bread in the aroma. Taste is very spicy from the beginning. Towards the end, vanilla and sweetness. A bit confusing, I don’t know why. Too much vanilla probably...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske delt på RBHD-samling på Tau okt-14: rødgylden med kort, storboblet skum. Mye aroma! Kardemomme, karve, og ikke minst vanilje. En (tindbær)aktig syrlighet utfyller krydderdrakten, og det hele går opp i en interessant, lett sprudlende barleywine-aktig nytelse. Fruktige toner fyller ut helheten.
