JulienHuxley (3256) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
Bottle from Bierkoning. Not super opaque black pour with very thin quickly vanishing head. Aroma is quite smoky, laced with bourbon/whisky notes, leather, roasty, vanilla. Taste is sweet, filled with bourbon, oaky flavors, light leather with a long lasting smoky finish that is quite enjoyable, bitter. Palate is full bodied but not cloying with good strong carbonation. Excellent.

Abijen (1498) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2013
Pours a black beer with a good brown head. Smells coffee, roasted and chocolate. Tastes vanilla, coffee and chocolate milk. I like! Thick body, low carbo and a sticky oily texture. One of the best beers of the molen imo.

Bosbouw (1301) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2013
Mooie zwarte kleur met weinig bruin schuim. Ruikt naar hout, iets bourbonachtig, gebrand, rokerig, en koffie. Lekkere volle smaak, houterig, vanille en iets rokerig, zoetig bourbon en bitter. Lekkere dikke structuur.
