4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at HaandFestival 2012. A very good looking beer, black in color and with a dark tan head of moderate size. The aroma is on the roasted side, with chocolate, coffee, some alcohol hints, dried fruits like figs and prunes, and a vanilla-ish, bourbon-like scent. Yummi! The flavor is in the same league, sweet and roasted, with coffee and chocolate, a nice but subtle bitterness, some resin and dried fruits. It’s full-bodied, warming and soft on the palate, with a lasting finish. Certainly one of the best beers at the festival, wish I could have more of this. 120504

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Aroma has some clear barrel notes and a bit of smokiness. I don’t know what types of barrels were used but the aroma indicates some peated scotch. But it may be only from the smoked malts. The taste doesn’t have that smokiness, only some barrel character and a bit of chocolate. Balanced and easy drinking. Alcohol is not present in the taste or aroma. Another good one from De Molen.
