Bottle. Dark brown with ring of tan head. Spicy funky wood aroma, some chocolate and licorice. Similar taste, some funky notes, oak, chocolate and licorice. Quite sweet. Ok, not sure if it’s meant to be like this.

JulienHuxley (3102) - 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 (1481) - ’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 (1256) - 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.

DutchDrebus (4020) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle @ home thx to joes. Pitch black colour, hardly any head. Smells cork, red wine, oak, alcohol. Tastes almond, bourbon, sweet, wood, roasty, chocolate, vanilla. Full body, soft carbo. Taste is better than the smell. After a few sips some bourbon is noticable in the smell.

caesar (5131) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2013
Bottled, July 9th 2013, large sample. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma is boozy, biscuity malts, chocolate, coffee, lots of wood, hint of leather and smoke, slight peat. In taste sweetness from biscuity malts, quite bitter, bit dry from the smoked notes. Lovely stuff, once again.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne, bottled 9th July 2013
Black color with small head. Wonderful aroma, with wood-oven baked bread, chocolate, peat, whiskey, roasted nuts, hint of vanilla; powerful and harmonious. Good body strenght, yet the mouthfeel is initially lean, even pungent; very good chocolate flavor, with rising sweetness; it has dynamic veins of leather, peat, liquorice; quite strong bitterness; the final is a good balance of roasted malts, peat and alcohol.
Great beer, showing the famous dark chocolate character that only De Molen can achieve.
