bartlebier (1542) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2014
33cl bottle Edeka Mohr, Bonn 02/2014. Bottled 11/2012. Pours a very cloudy wooden mauve once yeast is poured in. Boozy fig marmelade nose. Aroma of fallen autumn leaves, maroni, mushroom. Higher bitterness in the taste than expected, making this even more medicinal-woody. Belgian yeastiness and carbonation. Lingering yeast-hoppy finish. Overall blunt mix of prime old flavours.

NikkTwist (1538) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2013
Draft at Monks. Cloudy amber pour with a pillowy white top. Sweet grassy notes off the top. Earthy floral flavors. Wildflower honey. Interesting mix of amber fruit, brown fruit and bright herbs. Spicy bite as well. I like it. Maybe having it a bit too cold. Still feels nothing like an ESB.

BeerBaboon (1533) - FINLAND - MAR 22, 2012
Dark red with a little bit of brown in it. Very strong aroma of yeast and pastry. Smells like a frikkin home brew. Yet it’s a pretty good aroma. Flavour is somewhat sweet. Pretty interesting brew.

ElDesmadre (1496) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 29, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning, many thanks! Reddish brown with a big head of medium durability. Aroma is caramel, fruity esters (red apples, apple puree, redcurrant), with a quite strong Czech herbal hop quality. Sweetish-sourish (vaguely vinous), very pleasant smell. Full body, taste is partly sweetish because of the fruitiness and malt, ending with a strong and durable hop bitterness and an aftertaste of apples, hops and some green olives. This is a really great interpretation of the style.

ShivanDragon (1441) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2013
7.5%, mooi rood met bruine toets, schuimig kaki kraag, mooi helder
aroma’s van aardse caramouten, ambermout, maar met name de aardse tonen overheersen, mooie fruitige hoppigheid, donker fruit dit keer, wat van rozijnen.
smaken zijn matig zoet, iets van kandy/bruine suiker zoetigheid, bittertje valt wel wat mee, aan de zwakke/matig kant, lijkt zelfs wat van gebrande/geroosterd mout en van de bitterhoppen te komen. caramel, donkere fruiten zoals rozijnen. afdronk lang bitter
matige body, lage co2, aardig maar géén toppertje.

Osprey87 (1405) - WALES - JUN 24, 2013
Slightly chilled bottle. Two years and one day old. Dark orange/red with the usual huge head which endures. Smell - old ale, caramel, yeast, molasses, tangerine. Carbonation - mid to soft. Taste - typical De Molen caramel, liquorice, sweet honey flavours with a decent dose of bitterness. Enjoyable high quality beer. Not quite to my taste though, which reduces the rating slightly.

Niall73 (1403) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle 23/06/11. A very lively pour resulting in a dark amber beer with a big foamy slightly off-white head. Medium body. Big sweet biscuity aroma, with dark fruits - prunes mainly - coming through too. The biscuit, dark fruits are there as well as caramel, a touch of citrus and a nice smooth boozy bitter hit. Good.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Dark orange amber, thick bubbly orangey white head. Mango, slight honey, thick perfumed hop nose. Juicy citrus front flows into slight estery sweetness, with a drying peppery hop linger.

(Bottle). Aroma and taste of sweet caramel malt, raisins and figs. The taste is quite sweet but not too sticky.
