2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
This must be the worst of the beers of De Molen I have ever tried. The smell has something of a stable. The taste is also quite disappointing. You can taste some chocolate but mostly it has something of old milk. The beers of De Molen are usually very good but I think something must have gone wrong with this brew or the combination of whey and beer are not quite my taste.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at Borefts 2012, Bodegraven. Pours black-brown with a bubbly, brown head. Weird aroma of onions, human diarrhea and cow manure. Big sweet flavor with dark sugars, oddly intense sweetness, some more poo. Light bodied with fine, soft carbonation. Super sweet finish with more manure, awkward vegetal notes, faint chocolate. Weird beer. Somewhat tough-going at times.

Tiene buena pinta pero el sabor me pareció repugnante. Tuve que dársela a un amigo porque fuí incapaz de acabármela. A él sí le gustó.

Keg @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep brown with a small head. The nose is red onion peel, some steak sauce and coffee. The taste is strange tangy fruits, chocolate, more umami steak sauce flavors. Medium body. Very strange and not too pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Borefts 2012. Black with zero head. Aroma has lots of coffee and a hint of coconut. Deep, dark malts make for a cola and cocoa taste with plenty of liquorice. Amazingly thick on the palate for the ABV. The whey must be what makes this beer feel so unnatural, lopsided and strange, but it’s all of those things in the best possible sense.
