Idiosynkrasie (5852) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 25, 2012
330ml bottle. Minimally cloudy reddish amber colour with huge, firm, frothy to creamy, lacing, white to off-white head. Aroma is slightly sweet toasted malty and minimally grainy, with some bitter hop emanating from the huge head, decent hints of dark fruit and chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet toasted malty, grainy, dark fruity notes transform to a chocolately touch. Sticky finish. Not to its disadvantage more lively carbonated than an "English" English Strong Ale.

tiong (5840) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2012
330ml bottle

Pours reddish orange with a medium foamy white head. Aroma has notes of berries, earthy notes, malts and gooseberry. Taste of berries, malts and caramel. Finish is quite bitter with some fruity notes. A bit unbalanced, berries dominate the taste a bit too much.

kappldav123 (5807) - GERMANY - NOV 15, 2011
Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass brownish, nice head. Starts strong, fine spicy, some sourish notes. Nice caramel notes in the background, but the finish is dominated by dry alcoholic notes. Starts better than it ends.

Hermod (5452) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2011
33cl bottle from Bierzwerg. Bottled 06/2011. Slightly cloudy, amber color with a nice, lacing white head. Peppery, dark fruity and slightly hoppy aroma. Alcohol coming through alot when warmer. Flavor is very similar, strong bitterness in finish. Felt raw and had a sticky mouthfeel.

DutchDrebus (5380) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2011
Draught @ TBF ’11. Very sweet beer, bit of a manderine smell to it. Bitter, malty, fresh. Good beer, not extreme.

The_Osprey (5298) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - 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.

thornecb (5274) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 23, 2013
Pours deep hazy gold into a tulip. Off-white head with good retention recedes leaving sheet lacing. Sour tropical fruit aromas. Sweet dry caramel with nutty toast and hay in the middle and a lasting bitter earth finish.

jfb (5246) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2012
(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.
