Maakun (588) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2013
Reddish-brown, white head and nice visible carbonation. Nose has citrus, lychee, some toast, fruitcake. Something soapy in there as well. Taste is fruity, nice citrus, berries, medium bitter with a tart and long finish. Medium body with above-average carbonation. Overall: nice beer, but the soapy thing doesn’t do it for me. If it had a bit heavier maltyness it would be more balanced. Still enjoyable though, and definately interesting.

hobsch (500) - Cologne, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle 0.33l. Pours red to brown with a steady creamy beige head. Strong carbonation. Aroma is caramel, bread, yeast with basement. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter, caramel, roasted malt, earthy. Aftertaste is quite bitter, slightly sour. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Alcohol is well hidden. Good.

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - JAN 9, 2013
Tap. Clear dark amber/brown body with an average sized white head. Aroma/taste: complex, smokey, leather, sweet, floral aroma with a sweet fruity woody body and a penetrating significant bitter finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Sizzler80 (459) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 23, 2012
Dark copper pour with a white lid. Strong aromas of alcohol, caramel, citrus, floral, hops and malt. Its bitter and a little sweet from the caramel. The alcohol feel is quite strong. Its creamy and the citrus can be tasted almost in isolation at times. There’s a lot going on and the flavour profile varies almost each sip. Medium carbonation. Another really enjoyable offering from De Molen. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dexcansino (453) - Andalucía, SPAIN - MAR 6, 2013
Cerveza de color ambarino, con una densa y cremosa espuma de color amarillento. De olor y sabor acaramelado, con un marcado malteado y equilibrio entre el dulce y el amargor.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - APR 4, 2012
Dark ruby/browny with a huge white/beige foam head that never fall. Nose is typically English (specific hop? or malts that are used for that brew?) but some off-flavours can be noted such as burnt grain. In mouth: too much foam, malt dominates, but a cap’s metallic taste spoil the malty profile then bitterness surrounds everything in aftertaste.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2011 It starts out tasting sweet, than some sourness kicks in but the bitterness dominates in the lasting finish. The taste is roasty and of dark chocolate. The aroma is sweet and caramel dominates. It has a dark copper colour and a large off-white head that diminishes. I was thoroughly impressed by this brew! (Bottle)

borisz (374) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2012
Dark ruby brew, fruity aroma. Carbonation under control. Complex. Rather sour, cherries, rhubarb. Does not fit into standard categories. Vinous. Ends up bittersweet, there are strong hop elements dancing around a body that has plenty malt sweetness. Fine, but one bottle is enough at a time.

grunx (367) - - DEC 16, 2011
Color ambre. Amarga, lleugera, amb una carbonatació agradable i amb certa retenció d’escuma. Notes de fruits secs en boca. Final sec, amarg, llarg i agradable. De fàcil beure. Per treure la sed.

0,33 Bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika @ home. Pours mahogney brown with a huge beige small bubbled head. Nice. Some alcohol notes. flat taste with an alcohol aftertaste. A bit flat and boring but easy to drink.
