3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
