Martinus (2815) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2013
Hazy brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of cheese and malts. Light bitter flavour, hops, and quite a bit of off-flavours, fusel oils and medicine. Finish light hops and cheese.
Not sure what was the matter with this bottle, but it wasn’t really pleasurable I’m afraid. Might warrant a re-rate.
(From 33cL bottle at the DMT @ Tim’s living, Gent. Shared by sebletitje. Thanks, Seba!)

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 30/XII/12 - 33cl bottle @ home: De Molen & assorted beers tasting - bottled: 8/IV/12 (2012-1415) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear deep orange to amber beer, huge fizzy off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very smelly, swimming pool, citrus, peppermint, herbal. MF: lots of carbon, light to medium body. Taste: bitter start, herbal hops, pretty spicy, sourish, cocoa powder. Aftertaste: very bitter, cardboard, bit spicy, dry, hint of sugar. Tastes like the bottle is 5 years old, but it’s only 8 months old!

sebletitje (6680) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 31, 2012
33cl bottle, shared with 77ships, Martinus and Tderoeck. Bottled on 8-4-2012. Cuivrée, col épais blanc-beige. Arôme est malté moyen laissant penser à un bouquet de vieux grains voire de grenier, possible seigle? Palais reste trop effervescent rappelant ce côté aspirine, le tout est sec et terreux avec un malté léger tirant vers un fin caramel. Amertume reste modérée en fin de bouche avec ce profil typique de DeMolen qui parfois ne fonctionne pas trop bien pour certaines bières. Ici, c’est un très bon exemple, la bière est ennuyeuse et ne montre pas franchement un caractère qui invite à visiter cette bière une deuxième fois.

(draught) pours a murky deep ruby colour with a creamy off-white head. aroma of dried dark fruit, caramel and kiwi, slightly musty with a hint of cherries. flavour is mostly the same, lots of dark fruit, with strong notes of pineapple, some caramel and a hint of pale malts in the slightly alcoholic semi-dry finish. heavy-bodied with average carbonation.

Pours a deep cloudy dirty ruby, thick of white heads which clings to the sides, aroma wow tropical hops with a conference Belgium yeast undertone soapy fairy liquid, taste carries on with soap little bit of a sour touch with some earthy hops lingering at the end. Perfect consistency, little bit thick.
