Dark red color, little brown. Smell little bit ashes, not much more. Taste is a little bitter. Nice beer.

Rune (9355) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2011
330ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. Huge, fawn-coloured head that stays well in the glass covering an unclear amber body. Fragile lace. Smell of earthy malts with notes of petrol. Flavoured with dark spices and earthy, caramel malts. Bittersweet aftertaste. The beer lost some of its flavour and body after a while. Quite alright, but not on par with the De Molen range (Tromsø, 17.12.2011).

GT2 (9347) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Poured a clear, light orange with a small, whiter head. HUGE yellow apple nice, insane cidery notes and acetaldehyde. Orange cough syrup comes to mind as well. Even small vinegar. Uhhhh. Taste is bitter, soapy, very astringent like over steeped malt. Tannic red apple skins as well. Super tea tannic astringency. What.....happened.....

pivnizub (9306) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle: Hazy, reddish-amber coloured, lacy off-white head, moderate caramelly fruity and distinctive hoppy nose; robust bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, pretty soft; dry lingering - with hops sticking to the palate - hoppy finsh, balancing sweet dried fruits and malt in the aftertaste. Very good English Strong Ale, even though brewed in the Netherlands…

Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours murky dark amber with a small off-white head. The nose is sweet, earthy, musty, cereal, cracker, brown bread, mild ketchup and squash. The taste is toasty, earthy, cereal, cracker, sort of watery, toasty grass, light spice and sugary with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Flavour is a but wishy washy and muted. Disappointing.

MoritzF (8726) - GERMANY - JAN 31, 2012
(bottle, 33cl, 7.5% abv) Slightly hazy, copper to deep amber colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Slightly sugary sweet malty and distinctively fruity aroma with notes of candied berries, strawberries and peaches, accompanied by shades of caramel in the background. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Cara-malty and fruity taste with present herbal and slightly woody hops; dry-ish bitter hoppy and quite lasting finish with fruity spots. Really nice. 25.XII.11

rosenbergh (8556) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 16, 2013
330 ml bottle. Bottled 22/Jun/2011. From bierzwerg.de.
Clear dark amber colour with a ridiculously huge foamy head. Very malty aroma. Extremely malty aroma. Some floral hops and sweetness there too. The flavour is hops, bitterness, malt, alcohol and Well, I’m not quite sure what this is supposed to be? It might be exactly that but it’s not something I like.

Fin (8332) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle via Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham, consumed at home Sunday 19th July 2015 Amber on the pour with a filmy head, a little toffee on the nose and in the mouth though with a spicy edge, yeasty and with a hop tingle. This is far better than I expected in fact I really like it. A7 A3 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

sebletitje (7801) - 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.

Ferris (7691) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2013
Bottle - Boozey caramel, brown sugar and bread. Cloudy copper with a rich big beige head. Tons of caramel and candied sugars, bit of bread and some bitterness. Very nice, especially if you like caramel.
