fonefan (35959) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2012

Draught @ [ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012 ] @ Spartas Lokaler, Faelledparken in Osterbro, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Clear dark black brown colour with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, smoke - speyside, bordeaux - red wine notes. Flavour is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Again a very lovely and balanced beer made by Menno and the Crew at De Molen. ;O) [20120512]

On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration.
Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is softish and dry. Rich dark malt, bitter toffee. The smoke is very mild. A little faint red wine underneath the dark malts providing red berry fruits. Not getting any speyside. Warming dry finish.

fiulijn (15227) - 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.
